A Message from our Co-Founder Meagen: I developed a gluten intolerance after a difficult illness and hospitalization in 2013 and haven't eaten a regular pizza crust since. Here are the top five things I miss that today will make me feel ill and testy with my husband for no reason:
1) Tortellini noodles
2) Focaccia bread
3) Craft beer
4) Filo dough
5) Really good wood fire pizza crust
Most days, I eat healthier in general and I don't miss much. Even Disney World has my back now, and most gluten free goodies like bread and pasta can be pretty great on this side of things. Most importantly, I don't have to give up one big important item - also my livelihood - delicious alcoholic beverages. With a few adjustments, knowing my own (in)tolerance, and asking a few questions when needed, I can still explore the big wide world of craft alcohol.
If you're #glutenfreelikeme, help me send a big shout out to Gluten Free New Orleans for partnering on this cheat sheet. We noticed our community needed a basic guide to navigate the options with a little expert insight, and we hope it's helpful. Craft alcohol is a fantastic way to support local and drink local (despite our allergies), and we're glad you're here.

We avoid ground spices in our infusions, opting for whole spices instead, and we absolutely never add anything with a gluten content to our infusions. So yep, it's safe for you, too.
