Gluten Free Beers - Billabong Brewing - Perth. Ph 08 93172940
With the assistance of the WA Department for Agriculture and Food, and under the guidance of the WA and Australian Coeliac Societies, we have developed a starting range of three Certified Gluten Free beers – a “Blonde” (4.5% abv), a Ginger Beer (4.5%) and an Apple Beer (5.0%). And most recently our Australia's Pale ale (5.1% abv) Further beer styles are in development, including a Mid Strength and a dark Ale , next year should see some darker, richer beer styles being added to our list.
You will note each of these beers carries the unique logo of the Australian Coeliac Society certifying it to be “gluten free”. The license to use this logo is given by the Society only after they have examined the recipe(s) and are satisfied that the processes in manufacture ensure no gluten containing matter can contaminate the product. Additionally, each batch is independently laboratory tested for gluten by the most rigorous testing possible (in this instance to 5ppm). The fact that our products have passed this testing is testament to the diligence applied to the process and is a reflection of the demand by you, the consumer, that these beers can be consumed by you with unwavering confidence. All of this means that our beers cost a little more than mainstream beer products, but we expect you would agree that in the circumstances the safety of the product will easily outweigh the extra expense.
