Beers without the bloat
Award-winning beers that promise ‘taste without the bloat’ are now available in larger branches of Morrisons, UK wide, on the ‘free from’ shelves.
Produced by a Scottish microbrewery in small batches, the beers will suit anyone who has a sensitive stomach or a gluten intolerance. They are also low carb, certified by Coeliac UK and registered with the Vegan Society.
The two beers – a refreshing, classic Pilsner and a copper coloured, aromatic IPA – are made by Bellfield Brewery which was set up by a by a team including two coeliacs, with the express purpose of making exceptional beers that just happen to be gluten-free.
Speaking about the beers, Head of Brewing and Business Development, Kieran Middleton, said, “We set out to create a great-tasting craft beer that everyone to enjoy. They’re made in small batches, using traditional methods and natural ingredients. We take testing and analysis very seriously and I think the time we take over our beers, is also part of the reason they taste so good. We’re chuffed to be bringing them to a wider audience thanks to our listing with Morrisons.”
Set up less than two years ago and based in Edinburgh, Bellfield has already won several major awards for its range of modern gluten-free beers; not in a special ‘free-from’ category, but up against traditional gluten-containing brews. Over the past year, it has picked up two country awards in the World Beer Awards and the IPA has been ranked as among the top ten IPAs in the UK.
The beers are light, easy drinking and complement food well.
Lawless Village IPA and Bohemian Pilsner are available from 19th February in 54 of Morrisons largest stores across the UK, from Maidstone to Plymouth and Peckham to Carlisle. The beers come in 330ml bottles, priced £1.86 and can be found in the ‘free from’ section of the supermarket. Both beers can also be bought at Morrisons online.
