Our gluten-removed beers are produced locally in San Francisco. Our special brewing process removes the gluten allergen during fermentation, preserving the taste and integrity of the beer. Simply put, you get all that great beer taste you want, but without all the gluten!
The fine print: Sufferfest beer is fermented from grains containing gluten and crafted to remove gluten. Our finished beer is analyzed in a lab that uses best-in-industry R5- Gliadin ELISA assay and registers at the lowest detection limit possible, ensuring that only trace amounts of gluten are present.
The Taper was developed for a rest day, but pairs well with our favorite activities. This IPA sports a classic blend of citrus and floral notes with hints of orange blossom and pine. It's bitterness and hop aroma are balanced by a bright, clean finish for excellent drinkability.
Our Epic Pilsner is big, bright and especially satisfying on a hot day or after a good sweat. With farmhouse-style notes, a touch of caramel and a hint of spice, the Epic's saaz hops brings a zesty start, followed by a rich grain flavor to finish like a winner.
Best Gluten-Removed Beers To Buy: The spicy European hops with toasty malts make this crisp lager as tasty and refreshing as any pilsner you could get your sweaty hands on.
Competitor Magazine: The upstart brand has two light and tasty runner-themed beers out so far—Epic Pilsner and Taper IPA.
In 2012 when Caitlin Landesberg discovered she was gluten intolerant, she started her quest to find the best gluten-free beer in the world. After turning up short, she started brewing it herself. After teaming up with an all-star brewmaster to perfect her recipes, Caitlin started to share her beer with friends and fellow trail runners. In late 2015, Caitlin established Sufferfest Beer Company and left her job to pursue her passion full-time. Now, we're a team of fun-loving athletes who love to sweat for our beer.

Whether you crushed it on the trails, had a big win at the office, flexed your weekend warrior, or shredded the gnar, you deserve this beer. From us to you: go hard, have fun, and enjoy the sufferfest.
