Frequently Asked Questions
All you need to know about our brewery, the Glutenberg line of products and gluten in general.
What is gluten?
Gluten is protein found in wheat, barley, rye and oats.
Are all of your beers gluten-free?
Yes. All of our beers are brewed using 100% gluten-free ingredients and don't contain a single trace of gluten (0.00 PPM).
How do you make sure your beers are always gluten-free?
At the brewery, we are entirely devoted to the production of gluten-free beer. This means that not a single ingredient containing gluten enters the plant. What's more, all of our beers are 0,00 PPM-tested by an independent lab. Finally, we conduct an ELISA test on each brew.
How are your beers different from other barley-derived beers from which gluten has been removed?
Contrarily to beers containing barley from which gluten has been extracted, we use only gluten-free ingredients. This is how we reach 0.00 PPM gluten levels without problems. At best, barley-derived beers have 5 to 20 PPM results.
Do your beers contain alcohol?
Yes. Gluten-free does not mean alcohol-free. Our beers have alcohol levels ranging from 4.5% to 6.5% for our regular products, with up to 9% for some of our seasonal beers.
Will you offer an alcohol-free beer one day?
Producing alcohol-free beer entails a completely different process than producing gluten-free beer. Let's say that it's not part of the brewery's medium-term plans!
Are hops gluten-free?
Yes. The hop plant is a perennial climbing plant belonging to the Cannabaceae family. It's used in beer for its bitterness and aromatic properties.
Do your beers contain nuts?
The Glutenberg Red contains chestnuts, which are not usually considered allergens. None of our other beers contain nuts.
Are your beers vegan?
Yes. We do not use any animal-based ingredients while producing our beers.
Are your beers Kosher certified?
No. Our beers are not Kosher certified.
Do your beers contain sulphites?
No. Our beers do not contain sulphites.
Do you offer guided tours of the brewery?
We do not currently offer guided tours of the brewery. However, you can visit us by appointment. In the long run, we would like to offer guided tours to our clients.
What do the letters IBU mean?
The letters IBU mean International Bitterness Unit. Breweries use it to measure a beer's bitterness. The higher the number, the more bitter the beer.
