I have to give props to Coors for their entry into the gluten free marketplace with their new Coors Peak Copper Lager (a six-pack of which they sent me recently)—they are using brown rice malt as the base for their beer rather than sorghum, as is very common among GF beers, and I can’t imagine that malting rice is an easy task by any means.

You will recall that AC Golden is a subsidiary of MillerCoors, and is their small-batch specialty division known primarily for brewing the Colorado Native lineup of beers. This particular beer has an interesting story, as you may have guessed from the name: it’s brewed … Continue reading →
