Its 5 o’clock Friday and the weekend is here! So get ready for it with a G-free drink!
This weeks featured drink is Angry Orchard’s Crisp Apple Cider. Husband and I made a trip down to BevMo! in search of some G-free beer. I am a huge fan of hard ciders but was not sure if they were G-Free. Picking up a few different bottles I found a few labeled GLUTEN FREE! The Angry Orchard’s label caught my eye and I purchase the 6 pack for $7.49 before tax.
The taste of the cider was sweet and refreshing. It was gold in color and didn’t have a strong tart after taste as with some hard ciders. It was smooth, light, and taste pretty much just like carbonated apple juice. Really refreshing on hot summer day because its not to deep in flavor or to heavy. If your looking for something to refresh you on a hot summer day I would recommend this cider. Or to a person that is new to drinking and doesn’t want to be over powered. But if you are looking for a bold deep taste this is not for you.
Husbands review, plain and simple, “it tastes just like juice”.
Just got back from spending the week in San Diego! After spending the day relaxing at the beach I picked up my husband and met some of his friends at Slater’s 50/50 – Burgers by Design. I have to say this was one of the best burger places I have ever been to. The prices were very reasonable they have a 100 bears on tap, and you can make your own burger! That’s right, I said make your own burger! They offer you a list mind blowing mouth watering choices. And best of all… they offer a gluten-free menu and serve G-free beer. I wish I could remember the name of our knowledgeable waitress. After informing her that I was allergic to gluten she quickly got me the G-free menu. She informed me that a few staff members were also gluten sensitive. After ordering my lettuce wrapped, beef, 1000 island dressing, asparagus spears, onion, egg over medium burger, I washed it all down with a gluten-free beer. The beer, New Planet Beer, was a little heavier then the cider I am use to drinking. The flavor pleasing but a little to filling for me when paired with a burger. One last thing, order the vampire dip (not in bread bowl) with veggies! You wont be sorry if you like cheese and garlic melted together in a bowl of wonderfulness. Just be sure you are comfortable breathing on the people surrounding you. 🙂
Thanks Slater’s 50/50 – Burgers by Design for being gluten friendly.
