New Belgium Brewing Co.’s newest beer is missing an ingredient that is normally included.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Glütiny Pale Ale is a 6 percent ABV pale ale that is fermented from grains containing gluten, but then has the gluten removed during the brewing process. The beers are considered “gluten-reduced.”
“It’s a mutiny on gluten that’s demanding we brew up something hop lovers can rally behind without flavor being held prisoner,” reads the beer label. “Join the Glutiny.”
Glütiny Pale Ale is brewed with Cascade, Chinook, crystal and Equinox hops along with black, C-80 and Munich malts.
It will be joined by Glütiny Golden Ale, a 5.2 percent ABV beer brewed with Cascade, golding and Nugget hops and C-80, oats and pale malts.
Both beers will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles and are expected to release in January. New Belgium says both beers will be offered year-round.
Update (Nov. 16, 2015) — Added info on both beers, release date and images. The original post was published on Sept. 27.
