Gluten-free brewing

Brewing is a science;
gluten-free brewing, an art.
How do you get a 100% gluten-free beer?

Quite the burning question! In order to ensure an uncontaminated product, the only foolproof solution is to brew exclusively from 100% gluten-free ingredients, allowing us to reach 0.00 PPM on the dot every time. That’s the Glutenberg guarantee.

But why stop here?

In addition to being gluten-free, our ingredients are also carefully selected so that each of our beers has a unique and memorable taste. That’s the Glutenberg difference.

It all begins with the grains: millet, buckwheat, corn, quinoa and amaranth are only a few examples of the grains we use on a daily basis.

Over 90% of our grains come from Ferme Sans Gluten, located near the brewery.

We first need to break down the grains into a fine flour: our mill crushes the cereal, reducing it to dust.

The grain is soaked in hot water to extract its sugars.

Since gluten-free grains are a bit harder to work with, we use a press filter to extract the wort. The mix of water and grains is passed through the press filter, where the grain is separated from the resulting sweet wort.

We are proud to say that we are the very first brewery in Quebec to apply such a method!

The spent grain is then collected and returned to the Ferme Sans Gluten, where it is used as compost in the millet and buckwheat fields that supply the brewery. Therefore, nothing is lost, nothing is created; everything is transformed.

The wort is boiled and hops, as well as other types of sugar, are added to provide taste and give__ aromas__ to the beer.

The wort is then transferred into the high speed whirlpool tank. Centralipetal force allows us to separate liquids from solids before sending the hopped wort into the fermentation tanks.

Once the yeast is added, we let time work its magic. It is during the fermentation process that the yeast will transform the previously extracted sugars into alcohol

Depending on the style of beer we are brewing, the fermentation can take place over a period of 5 to 13 days.

The beer is then filtered towards the conditioning tanks, where C02 is injected in order to produce a clear and carbonated liquid.

The beer is canned, packed and sent to retailers and distributors.

From our tanks to your glasses, Glutenberg is now ready to be enjoyed!
