We took time out of our busy schedule to try some of the 5 best gluten-free beers you can find: 

  1. Burning Brothers Brewing
    Do you like your beer with a side of java? Burning brothers offers up a gluten-free roasted coffee (stout like) brew. The coffee flavor really cuts through and some might say its a bit too bitter, but if you’re missing a frothy stout this one is right up your alley.
