As my earlier thread has been archived I am starting over to try for more feedback. 

Right now I am drinking Cheers Rice Berry beer which I hadn't seen before I spotted it in Big C today.

I usually buy beer lao lager (not dark) (rice beer) but availabity is spotty so sometimes I drink dry cider  - but availability is also spotty! (singha moose is just way too sweet). 

Interested to know if anyone else has found  a good supplier of gf lager type beer- or dry cider. But not at silly prices!

I would guess that most light coloured Thai beers would be below 20 ppm gluten (like many other beers around the world), but I guess if you’re super sensitive, that may still be no good.

I've been drinking the Cheers Rice Berry for a few months now. I really like the taste. Been buying mine at Makro (by the 12-pack).

Tried the alcohol free beer once ,,,,,,,,,,,bloody awful & that supposedly has yeast & barley in it.

Gluten content in Thai beers is minimal. Does it still affect you physiclly or is it a mental thing ?

Thanks for detailed reply.

 

Yes Beer Lao is great ( to my taste) and in reviews many prefer Beer Lao Dark, - and Beer Lao has been described by a few as the best in Asia! I havent sampled enough to vouch for that.  And opinions on beer are like those on pizza and burgers, and seem to flame folk for some reason.  Tried Alcohol free but not much improved since I used to drink in Saudi many many years ago.Too malty for me.

 

Best white wine I have found to my taste and budget is from Winepro online. Voyager Chardonnay from Margaret River at about 700bht. and Aussie Merlot is my favourite red.

 

Having spent all my long life eating what I like where I like, when my oncologist identified  post- chemo dairy and gluten allergies it was both a relief and a challenge.   Been at it 2 years and regress occasionally to see if both are still problematic. They are! 

 

But gluten free beer and pizza bases are around and I bought a bread machine and make up various non wheat flours successfully now. Non dairy cheese is also here and tasty.  Home made cider is very easy too.

After ops and chemo just happy to be alive to enjoy a gf df diet!

There is a gluten free beer for sale at Rimping on the river, near Dukes. I can't tell you anything more about it but I remember seeing it in the cold single-beers section just last night, June 11, 2021.

coeliacs can generally tolerate small quantities of barley malt so long as the product is below 20ppm.may not work for everyone but works for me
