New Planet Beer Enters the Ohio & Kentucky Markets

New Planet Beer offers three award-winning gluten-free beer varieties and is quickly gaining popularity across the United States.  I was able to sample all three earlier this year, but just got word that I will now be able to purchase the beer locally here in Ohio.  The beer is now available in 42 states with more coming in 2013.

BOULDER, Colo..New Planet Beer Company, the innovative pioneer of great-tasting gluten-free beers, has just entered the Ohio and Kentucky markets with its fast-rising, popular gluten-free beer styles now available at grocery chains, liquor stores and restaurants.

“Word is spreading that our gluten free beers have exceptional taste,” said Pedro Gonzalez, owner and founder of Boulder-based New Planet Beer Company.

New Planet beers are made with all-natural gluten-free ingredients, processed with care to avoid cross contamination, and tested regularly to assure compliance.  Hence, New Planet Beer is in full compliance with federal gluten-free labeling regulations and is justly labeled and advertised as truly and purely gluten free.

“We are gluten free from start to finish and all the ingredients we use are posted clearly on the label,” said Gonzalez.

The company offers three different award-winning styles:  Pale Ale, Raspberry Ale, and Blonde Ale.

New Planet Off-Grid Pale Ale is the perfect gluten-free interpretation of the classic pale ale.  It has a distinctly deep amber color and great character and body.   Three varieties of hops provide a wonderful aroma and a citrus and spicy flavor.  Gold Medalist, LA International Beer Competition 2012, Gluten Free Category

New Planet 3R Raspberry Ale is an award-winning ale with the right balance of fruit flavor and aroma.   Not overly sweet, the Oregon grown fruit puree creates a beautiful body color with a natural raspberry flavor. Bronze Medalist, GABF 2010, Gluten Free Category.

New Planet’s Tread Lightly Ale is a bright-and light-bodied blonde ale with a refreshing taste that doesn’t have the aftertaste of other sorghum-based beers.

New Planet is rapidly spreading across the U.S and is now available in 42 states. The company recently expanded its production capabilities to keep pace with demand. New Planet plans to increase capacity by 50 percent in 2013 to keep up with demand for its widely popular and outrageously tasty beers.

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.

I am thrilled that I can now purchase these beers in Columbus and can’t wait to get my hands on some Raspberry Ale!  Nothing goes better with a burger and fries or a hot and cheesy slice of gluten-free pizza.  Have you tried New Planet Beer?  What is your favorite gluten-free beer?
