Michelob Ultra Light Cider – Gluten Free

Anheuser-Busch launches a new GLUTEN FREE cider!

I’m excited to try this!  I like Woodchuck, but it is just too sweet to drink more than a couple.  I wonder how the light will taste…

I’ll see if I can get ahold of some ASAP.

I have been asked this question a lot, and never covered it specifically, because I thought it was pretty self-explanatory.  After getting the question twice today in my live chat feature, I figured it was time to set the record straight.  NO, Bud Light is not gluten free.

Being freshly out of college and my old business catering to the summer vacation crowd, beer was one of the hardest things for me to give up.  On a daily basis, I was offered beer by customers and friends.  It was always hard to turn it down, led to lengthy conversations about celiac, and left them feeling very sorry for me.

ABBeerInFridgeToday, almost a year of 100% gluten free, I still miss normal beer only a little, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t.  It was very hard in the beginning, but the desire is much less now.  Now, I choose something different and don’t sweat over it.  The gluten free beers taste much better now than they used to, probably because I am forgetting the taste of Bud Light.

I have gluten beer in my fridge that has been there from before I switched to gluten free.  It has helped to have it in there, so that I can pass the willpower test every day.  I even threw some gluten free awareness wristbands around a few to always remind me.  It has worked.

Here is a before and after photo… of the beer I am drinking, not my weight, hahaha.
