The gluten-free market has been growing steadily in recent years, bringing new, previously-unenlightened souls into the beer drinking world. And with more options, our gluten-intolerant friends get to be a little more discerning with their craft brews. We’ve got our hands on a few that really hit the mark whether you want gluten in your beers or not!


Hepworth & Co Brewers – Iron Horse (Pale Ale, 4.8%)

Brewed in West Sussex, Hepworth & Co Brewers looks and acts the part of a traditional brewery, but they’re not afraid to try something a little different, with most of their beers brewed to be naturally gluten-free and vegan-friendly, without additives.

Appearance: Pale, golden orange. A very lively pour, with a head that reduces quickly but comes right back with a swirl of the glass.

Aroma: Toasted malt biscuit and dried apricot straight off the nose. The yeast brings a touch of banana.

Flavour: Lighter-bodied but rounded taste, with well-integrated hops to balance the malt. Shandy with lime, melon, and a sweet biscuit maltiness that falls away to give a refreshing, bitter finish in the mouth.

Very much a traditional pale ale, sitting on the English Bitter side of the palate. This one goes down easy, that’s for sure! Perfect with a Sunday roast.

Go here if you want to try it for yourself!


Anarchy Brew Co – Exile (Pale Ale, 4.9%)

Another pale ale but pushed in a very different direction, just what we’d expect from Newcastle’s deviant brewery. It won The World Beer Awards Best Gluten-free Beer in the UK this year and with their new brewing digs and tap room, there’s plenty more room to play.

Appearance: Hazy, golden yellow, with a dense, creamy head that lingers in the glass.

Aroma: A blast of orange, with pine needles. A few floral hints, lemon zest, and a lacing of toffee. Overall not too dissimilar to wine gums.

Flavour: Juicy grapefruit, slight earthiness and grass, with clean malt holding it all together. A satisfying dry, bitter mineral finish from a powerfully hoppy beer.

Anarchy’s Exile keeps that American pale ale punch while giving gluten the finger.

Don’t miss out, here!

Wold Top Brewery – Marmalade Porter (Porter, 6.0%)

Founded by two farmers in the Yorkshire Wolds, this family-run business has come a long way from brewing in a barn. This particular beer was voted the UK winner at the World Beer Awards in 2017 for the porter category; meaning, there’s not much more we need say to convince you, but we’ll crack on anyway.

Appearance: Pours a hazelnut brown that turns to a dense, dark brown in the glass. The head reduces but leaves a thin crema.

Aroma: Sweet malt, chocolate, and an already perceptible bitter orange. Molasses, with a touch of black liquorice.

Flavour: Lighter texture, with plenty of flavour. Toasted bread, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans and orange peel provide a great package. Warm, dark malt, with a decent bitter finish that lingers at the back of the mouth.

A dark brew to be savoured, preferably at the end of an evening. Pour it over your vanilla ice cream for a real treat.

A gorgeously prepared brew awaits you here!

They all sound pretty good, right? You may be used to glutenous beers, but give these brews a try and you won’t even notice the difference!
