    I've never had any good gluten free beer, though I've seen a couple of new brands here, and I'm in Portland Oregon for the summer so if anywhere has a good version it should be here.
    Also I don't really think beer has all THAT much gluten in it, especially if you avoid weissens. Which are terrible anyhow.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    My partner & I brew beer, mead, cider & wine and it's been tough cutting back on the barley-juice. I mostly drink red wine now, and when I crack a homie I can feel the carbs like an allergic reaction. She has a diff metabolism and doesn't have an issue with beer though I grab a few drinks from hers, then have my wine.

    I still plan to brew though, just moderate a bit. Save it for weekends (and tequila) and in smaller quantities.

    I'll be drinking beer this weekend. I have a wedding reception.

    Beer is one of those things to enjoy in moderation. I'll be damned if I ever stoop to gluten free beer. Hell, there are celiacs out there that can drink beer. The fermentation process is pretty effective at degrading the bad stuff and amplifying the bioavailability of antioxidants. Mark writes about it here:

    It's all about "carbs" so the context is pretty stupid IMO as carbs aren't the issue here, but you should cut consumption and save it for pleasurable times. A couple beers on the weekend might be okay if it fits into your body composition goals. It doesn't look like you have much fat to lose for sure.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Yeah. Don't much care for weissens except Dogfish's Festina Peche a Berliner Weisse style. I love it's sour peachy taste. Very refreshing in summer.
