Seneca Murley over at New Planet Brewery reached out to us and sent their Treadlightly, 3R Raspberry and Off Grid Pale Ales.

For a long time, the different styles of beers available to the rest of the market have not been easily available for celiacs and other gluten-free drinkers.

New Planet definitely shifts the table toward the rest of theindustry with these three libations. We live in Sierra Nevada Pale Ale country, which is THE local favorite. New Planet’s Pale Ale stacks upwell against Sierra and has an expected hoppy bite that retreats to a smooth aftertaste. One of our reviewers even tasted a hint of scotch flavor.

The Raspberry brew is just like the fruit beers made in the Belgium tradition. In fact, we served them to some friends without telling them they were drinking gluten-free beers and no one knew the wiser. It had the sweet taste that many people like, especially on a hot day.

Treadlighty was actually my favorite – I usually like lagers and this met my needs and taste well. It had a crisp flavor and was exactly what I would choose while watching a football game on a cool Fall day.

You can’t go wrong with any of the New Planet offerings and we can onlyhope that they have enough success to allow them to expand their  portfolio of beers to other styles in the future.
