Bars in Philadelphia That Serve Gluten-Free Beer

Bars in Philadelphia That Serve Gluten-Free Beer

We’ve been on a gluten-free beer kick lately. We reviewed of Dogfish Head’s new Tweason’ale (turns out it's actually pretty good!), and then rounded up a whole bunch of other choices from breweries around the world. It’s wonderful that this market is expanding, because we feel awfully bad for people who can’t down a pint every now and then. (Sure, hard cider is delicious, and widely available, but it's not quite the same.)

Here are several spots celiac-suffering or gluten-free-living Philadelphians can go to kick one back at the bar, and what you can expect to find. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments!
