Big Boss Brewing Company - Gluten Free Beer?

I recently reached out to Raleigh's Big Boss Beer Company to see if they had any interest in creating a local Gluten Free Beer. Here is the response I received from Brad, the head brewer at Big Boss.

My name is Brad and I'm the head brewer at Big Boss. I know other people in your situation. We have thought about it and will consider alternative grists, but as we are growing as fast as we can it is a situation we will have to visit later. As of right now we use only natural ingredients and brewing processes. Thank you for your interest.

I guess I will be keeping my eye on this one. I highly recommend that you email Brad to encourage Big Boss to seriously consider this option.

As a homebrewer you can write breweries if you like but in the near term your better off to start brewing your own beer. I know American Brewmaster carries Sorgum extract and there are homebrewers working actively on coming up with recipes.

We just finished having our first Oktoberfest here in Wake Forest for the charitable Graham Johnson Cultural Arts Endowment Fund, and were very pleased with the information given by American Brewmasters. It was very educational and helpful to many newbies.

As a caution though be very careful of doing a fund raiser with Big Boss Brewery unless you have a written agreement that Big Boss will abide by the rules. They were no where near as cooperative and helpful as we found American Brewmasters to be.
