Best answer:

Answer by R.

Beers made from 100% Sorghum. These are generally brewed specifically for those with a hypersensitivity to gluten.

Guinness, while not made from wheat, is made from malted barley (as are most beer), which people with celiac disorder should avoid primarily due to a high probability of cross contamination with other gluten containing grains.

Sorghum is a cereal grain very popular throughout the world, mainly cultivated in Africa and parts of Asia. It contains no gluten.

Commercial Sorghum brews include:

Redbridge – by Anheuser-Busch)
New Grist Beer – by Lakefront Brewery of Milwaukee
Dragon’s Gold. – by Bard’s Tale Beer Co. in Kansas City

Though not a Sorghum, Ramapo Valley Brewing of Hillburn, N.Y has a Passover Honey Beer made from hops, honey and molasses.

But always check the label to verify that it is indeed gluten free, celiac safe
