Gluten Free beer by Celia Lager


Take a look through my Instagram and you would probably see two main themes... food and beer. Quite a gluttonous theme! Although I luckily don't suffer from gluten intolerance or celiac, my mum actually suffers from the later, so I know how tough it can be for people to find and properly enjoy such things as beer.

A couple of months ago I was approached by Celia Lager (see where they get there name from?), a Czech brewing company who brew gluten-free beer, who asked me to review a couple of their beers. Like I said I don't have problems with gluten myself, but I couldn't turn this one down.

They sent me a bottle of both Celia Dark and Celia Lager, and after chilling in the fridge for a couple of weeks while I was on holiday, I was ready to crack them open! With gluten being quite an important factor in brewing beer I was curious to see how the beers would turn out so I called in my flatmates to help me find out.

Firstly, Celia Lager. At 4.5%, it was such a nice, refreshing beer. A slightly citrusy flavour,  but not too overpowering, made it really crisp and perfect for summer days in the sun (even if these do feel like a distant memory now).

Personally, I quite like dark beers but my flatmates aren't so keen on it so this was an interesting one for them. Quite surprisingly they both really liked it and possibly even preferred it over the lager! With a slightly higher ABV of 5.7%, there are some serious coffee tones and a hint of nuts.  I don't think I'd be able to drink several of these in a row but I'd definitely choose it for one if I spotted it in a bar!

Overall, the beers were absolutely delicious and I'll be keeping an eye out for them when I'm out and about now (I've already found one pub that sells them!). The lack of gluten in the beers makes them feel slightly lighter and I can imagine less bloated if you're having a few!
