St Peter’s Brewery is launching gluten-free versions of its cream stout and Suffolk gold beers into the convenience channel.
Brewed with full Coeliac UK certification, the new beers are aimed at the growing number of shoppers, including coeliacs and those with a food intolerance, looking for a gluten-free alcoholic drink.
The gluten-free stout and Suffolk gold are brewed to the same standards as the original versions. The stout (rrp ) uses local malts and hops. With an abv of 6.5%, the beer also features coffee and vanilla notes.
Meanwhile, St Peter’s Suffolk golden ale features citrus notes and boasts an abv of 4.9%. The drink also features Suffolk hops which gives the beer a sweet but dry taste.
John Hadingham, managing director at St Peter’s Brewery, said: “This is an exciting launch for St Peter’s and a great opportunity to meet the growing customer demand for full-flavoured gluten-free stouts and strong, full-bodied ales.
“We’ve had a lot of requests for gluten free versions of our most popular beers so we are happy to be able to meet the needs of our customers.”
