Nevada's Joseph James Brewing Co. to Can First Gluten-Free Beer

gluten intolerant canned beer lovers rejoice

Henderson, Nevada's Joseph James Brewing Company announced earlier today that they plan to can their Fox Tail Gluten-Free Pale Ale along with two others beers this July. They will be the first craft brewery in the country to put a gluten-free brew in can. Fox Tail is brewed without sorghum, which is a staple ingredient in many commercially produced gluten-free beers, and is instead brewed with "organic rices, nectars and North American hops." Along with Fox Tail the brewery will begin canning their HopBox Imperial IPA and JJ Craft American Lager. Descriptions of the beers are below (from the Joseph James site).

Fox Tail Gluten-Free Pale Ale - "A gluten free pale that has citrus notes and is light bodied. You will find no sorghum in this beer, but rather organic rices, nectars and North American hops. This brew is 5% ABV and 50 IBUs."

HopBox Imperial IPA - "This Imperial IPA has a large hop aroma and sweetness from dark caramel malts. This brew uses Simcoe and Cascade hops and is hopped at 5 lbs. per barrel. The brew is 9.3% ABV and 90 IBUs."

JJ Craft American Lager - "Traditional style American lager brewed with the finest Pilsner malts and organic rice. This light bodied lager is crisp and refreshing at 5.2% ABV, 15 IBUs and is best enjoyed at 45-55F.  

Joseph James Brewing Company will join Reno's Buckbean Brewing Company and become the second the second craft brewery in the state of Nevada to can their beers. Cheers!

Note: Celiac disease, or gluten intolerance, is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats. The cause of this disease is unknown. The disease can also develop at any point in life, from infancy to late adulthood. 

Note Note: I hope to acquire a few cans of Fox Tail so I can share them with my Mom who has Celiac disease and with whom I've never had the pleasure of sharing a beer.
