Anheuser-Busch Redbridge Lager

Redbridge Gluten Free Beer

Anheuser-Busch’s Sorghum-Based Brew

The time has come to review what is perhaps, the most accessible gluten free beer on a national (U.S.) scale. Anheuser-Busch tried their hand at the gluten free market with this sorghum-based brew. They call it Redbridge.Anheuser-Busch redbridge gluten free beer review

Honestly, I’m not totally sure what style of beer Redbridge claims to be. On their website, it lists it as a sorghum-style beer. On other review sites, it’s listed as either a Red Lager or an American Amber.

The Taste Test

Anheuser-Busch Redbridge

I’ve been putting this beer off for a long time, partly because of it’s unexciting ingredients list, and partly because I wouldn’t reach for this brand, even in my gluten-drinking days. But honestly, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be.

It pours a golden amber color and its head vanishes immediately upon forming.

The Redbridge is light and slightly sweet with a healthy carbonation level. It goes down pretty smooth. That is to say, the sorghum isn’t the predominant taste (thank goodness).

Its body is heavier (or rather more-medium) than I expected. That combined with the color and taste is likely what has people classifying it as an Amber. Please feel free to comment if you know more about the style classification of this brew.

It smells like a sweet and basic American ale. It has a mild flavor, somewhere in between the NGB and the Coors Peak Lager. In fact, I think I like it better than both of those brews.

Overall, this gluten free beer is pretty unoffensive to those looking to replace an Anheuser habit, and it’s 100% gluten free ingredient list means it is truly safe for anyone with Celiac Disease to drink. I wouldn’t stock my fridge with it, I would probably choose wine over it, but I think it delivers what its market is expecting.

Long Overdue & Highly Requested

This brew has been heavily requested for review. Readers from all over the States have been naming this beer their go-to, which tells me that people can get their hands on it all over the country. That is the best thing about Redbridge. It may not win any taste wars, but you can find it. You can even buy it online.

I like Redbridge better than any other gluten free beer I’ve tried. I feel like I’m drinking a regular beer when I have it. It’s not a Blue Moon or other wheat beer that I’d prefer but definitely enjoyable.

I love this beer! But I cannot find it in Krogers where I have bought it before. No kroger seems to supply it.
Redbridge taste just like regular beer but not as strong tasting which I like.

I have a wheat allergy and I’ve been gluten free for almost 3 years now and It’s hard finding gluten free beer that’s not a cider and one that actually tastes good. This one I found about 4 months ago and I’m hooked. Love it! Great taste and no allergic reactions. Awesome!!
