Grolsch Kanon Gluten Test

Grolsch is Dutch brand by Bierbrouwerij de Klok, one of the larger Dutch brewers in the Mid east of the Netherlands. Grolsch Kanon is a very alcohol heavy Dutch beer. I tested it because I sometimes drank it before my coeliac diagnosis in 2011. I like it a lot so sometimes i like to drink just one of them. That’s the reason why I tested at 20 ppm: I have no intention in drinking more than one at one time.

Grolsch Kanon is a beer with double fermentation. It is a beer with high level alcohol: 11.6%. The taste is full: sweet and fruity.

Test result: There is no indication of the presence of gluten above 20 ppm. According to the instructions there should appear a clearly visible red test line on the right of the test area ( T ) to indicate the presence of gluten. The blue line on the left test area ( C ) is a control line and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Please don’t take any of the test results as a medical advice – see the facts page.

Bavaria Gluten Test

In 2011 I’ve been diagnosed with coeliac disease. I like beer, and it is often difficult to go to a bar or restaurant and drink beer as a coeliac. I was very glad when I first came across this website. I decided to test beer in the hope to discover beer that is served in bars and restaurants which is low in gluten so I can drink it, without getting ill. I also hope other people can take advantage of the test(s). Cheers!
