New Grist Organic Beer

We learned recently about New Grist from Grist Magazine (hmm…go figure). Brewed at the Lakefront Brewery along the Milwaukee River in Wisconin, they not only offer organic beer but it’s also the first beer brewed without malted barley or any gluten-containing products to be authorized by the U.S. Government. Each batch is tested for gluten prior to fermentation, before being bottled and shipped. And, Lakefront was the first American brewery to produce a certified organic beer under its own label. The brewery began with only sixty barrels of production and sold them exclusively to taverns within "rolling" distance of their Milwaukee headquarters. Now, the beer is available for distribution in six packs of 12-ounce bottles. If you live close by, Brewery tours are available and make sure to stop in for the Fish Fry on Friday evenings.
