Product review: O’Brien gluten-free beer

Speaking about cheating… an Oktoberfest-themed dinner earlier this year was the perfect excuse to try a gluten-free beer. I asked the person in charge of getting the booze to buy a German GF beer from Dan Murphy’s but they were out. He bought some O’Brien lagers and pale ales instead.

I tried the ale and it was great. Not the best beer I’ve ever had but not bad at all. It’s made with sorghum and millet and, while it didn’t give me any reflux or noticeable inflammation it did seem to make my digestion a bit slower. Not an ideal drink, but good for those once or twice a year beer cravings.

I’ve seen in their website that they do a light lager and brown ale, too. I’m not interested in the lagers but am trying to track down a bottle shop that stocks the brown ale.

  1. Does it compare to regular beer?

    1. To be honest, I haven’t had a regular beer in about 3 years. I do have a really good taste/smell memory… if I could drink beer with no impact on my health I would choose the regular.

  2. Is this a beer you would cook with necessarily?

    1. Not necessarily but yes, it works for cooking.

  3. Been waiting for 1month for a delivery from Obriens and still not received . Very poor service and nobody answers phone or returns your call. Very disappointed

    1. Hi Tony, you should direct your complaints to the manufacturer, I’m just a dietitian who occasionally reviews products.
