Gluten-free beer is part of the rising gluten-free product trend. The $4.2 billion market for gluten-free foods and beverages has exploded in recent years because more consumers are discovering they are gluten intolerant. Gluten is a protein in grains like wheat, barley and rye, which are typically found in beer. Many consumers have adopted a gluten-free diet by necessity or as a conscious choice when they discover they simply feel healthier without gluten. Those struggling with common disorders such as poor digestion and inflammation are discovering that removing gluten from their diet drastically reduces their symptoms the gluten free market.
And while Gluten-free consumers and beer aficionados alike extol New Planet’s taste, they are also impressed by the extra attention to detail, care and respect for the vital importance of meticulously cleaning and sanitizing brewing and bottling equipment required to brew gluten-free beer.
About New Planet
Set in the heart of Colorado craft beer country, New Planet Beer Company began operations in September 2009 by introducing the first gluten-free beer brewed and bottled in Colorado. From a humble beginning self-distributing from the back of a red pickup truck, the trailblazing company has grown with distribution to more than 42 states while winning awards and accolades for great taste.
New Planet is based in Boulder, Colo., and was founded by Pedro Gonzalez who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2003. Always a craft-beer lover, Gonzalez could not find a gluten-free brand with great taste, so he began his quest to make a great-tasting gluten-free craft beer that everyone could enjoy.
