GRAPHICS AND LINKS STILL AREN’T RIGHT. GO TO MY OTHER SITE TO SEE THIS ITEM THE WAY I PLANNED IT.

Just heard from Anhueser-Busch. Redbridge, A-B’s new beer made with sorghum contains 171 calories. So my guess yesterday was fairly accurate.

Not a diet drink. But a decent one and OK for celiacs – people who have an allergy to gluten, wheat, rye, barley, other cereal grains.

On the subject, there’s another sorghum beer on the market, which I really like. It’s Dragon’s Ale, from Bards Tale Beer Co., based in Missouri. The beer’s brewed under contract by Gordon Biersch. It’s worth a hunt to find it.

    I really like Redbridge Sorgum beer and think it taste better than traditional wheat and barley beer. Other than the Sorgum beer Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout is really my first favorite, but its much more caloric as I buy the large bottles. lol

    If you liked Redbridge, try to find Dragon’s Gold**** from the Bard’s Tale Beer Co. in Lees Summit, MO, brewed under contract by Gordon-Biersch in San Jose, CA. It’s made from malted sorghum. It’s a quantum leap ahead from Redbridge A bigger,fuller taste. Totally made witg sorghum. With Redbridge, Anheuser-Busch doesn;t say exactly what its made with, jsut that its safe for celiacs.
