Here’s some exciting news for gluten-free craft beer lovers! Washington State’s first dedicated gluten-free brewery is coming to Seattle this November.
Three Seattle brewers are getting ready to open the brilliantly named Ghostfish Brewery. It will be the first of its kind in the entire state. The beers will be completely gluten-free “from start to finish” according to Yerger, one of the three brewmasters who was himself diagnosed with a gluten-intolerance in 2007.
“Some breweries are trying to pass off barley beers treated with enzymes as safe for celiacs, and we are not one of them,” says Yerger.
Ghostfish’s beers will be created using naturally gluten-free grains such as millet and buckwheat, and gluten-free dried yeasts. Their three flagship beers will be a pale, a stout and a Belgian-style witbier. As well as being able to buy their beer in grocery stores, specialty bottle shops and restaurants across Western Washington, there will be a taproom looking into the brewhouse and a kitchen serving 100% gluten-free food. AMAZING!!
Right in the heart of Seattle’s SoDo district will be home for the soon-to-be-opening Ghostfish Brewery.
To all the lucky gluten-free folks living in or near Seattle, get excited. This place is for you.
Good luck, guys!
