Miscellaneous
  • Brewed by the Coors Brewing Company since 1989.
  • The "Light" and "Ice" versions of the beer are far more prevalent and readily available for retail across the United States.
  • In promotion of Keystone Light, Coors Brewing Company has created a fictitious character named Keith Stone. Keith Stone has appeared in numerous television spots promoting Keystone Light, where he dials a phone with beef jerky. The advertisements involving Keith Stone have inspired many customers to make spoof advertisements for distribution on the Internet.
  • In 2011, Coors Brewing Company, in promotion of its product Keystone Light, re-engineered its 30-pack cases to allow its purchasers to play a modified game of Cornhole, a popular Lawn game. The brewer rebranded its boxes to promote the game of "Canhole".

Test result

Very High Positive at 20 parts per million (ppm), meaning it more than 20 ppm. Though standards vary from country to country, according to the FDA, "In order to use the term 'gluten free' on its label a food must meet all the requirements of the definition, including that the food must contain less than 20 ppm gluten."  It is said that products with a gluten content below 20 ppm are suitable for people with celiac disease.


My experience drinking Keystone Light

Of all the mass-produced US lagers this my favorite. Keystone Light is brewed by Coors and is supposed to be the poorer relation to Coors Light. Seriously? Like Coors Light is top notch beer! In my opinion it is the other way around. Coors Light is under 10 ppm so it's a big shame Keystone Light isn't at least under 20 ppm.  

I am not sure where I fall in the gluten tolerance spectrum; I am gluten intolerant but not celiac. I definitely know what it feels like to be “glutened” i.e. gluten exposure, but I have not deliberately pushed my gluten consumption limits with any food or beer. I consumed this 12oz can in 30 minutes and felt no gluten effects.

  4. Thanks for all you do! Can you please test Coors Original (I'm very curious since Coors Light is safe - and I've been enjoying, but Coors original is better, obviously)

  11. Hi there! I'm not sure where you're located so I don't know if you'll have access to either of these beers, but I'd like to suggest to two to try. The first are any and all beers made by Alpine brewing company out of California. In 2014 they announced that all of their beers we're gluten reduced however, shortly there after they merged with Green Flash and stopped advertising themselves as gluten reduced. It's my understanding that they are still using gluten reducing enzymes, but I'd love to know for sure. The second I'd like to suggest is any and all beers by Yards brewing company out of Pennsylvania. I've read that they use clarity ferm, The enzyme that reduces gluten, in all of their beers but they don't advertise as putting reduced. I'd love to know if that's true as well. Thanks!

  12. I think we're similar, I'm gluten intolerant (probably not celiac) and can always tell if I eat something with gluten. Just last week, a family member made enchiladas that apparently had cream of chicken in it. I did not feel well.

    That being said, I typically drink Omission but with the info on this site, when Omission is unavailable have tried Corona, Coors Light, & PBR with no noticeable issues. Those last two beers were less enjoyable, but I didn't get sick. I think I tolerate beer well in general, but I still avoid anything that tests "gluten positive".

    Any chance you could test Coors Banquet? Coors Light is awful and I hold out hope that maybe Banquet is drinkable...

  17. To the above poster: it has had no postings in over a year, so I would rate it as "inactive." Thank goodness lowgluten.org is still active.
