Best gluten-removed beer: GOOD FOR LIFE KOLSCH at PAIR O’ DICE BREWING COMPANY

Best gluten-removed beer

My officemates, loved ones and friends are sick of me looking at them with sad eyes whenever they crack a cold one, so when Pair O’ Dice Brewing Company announced it would create one gluten-removed beer a month, guess who would’ve shoved her 98-year-old infirm grandmama out of the way to get to it? Yup, this girl. And, to the Clearwater brewery’s credit, when normal folk (that means those of you who can have gluten, you lucky bastards) drink this beer, you know what they say? “It tastes like real beer.” High praise indeed. 4400 118th Ave. N. #208, Clearwater. 727-755-DICE, pairodicebrewing.com. —Cathy Salustri
