Bellfield Brewery launches gluten-free beers

Edinburgh's Bellfield Brewery has launched two gluten-free beers; Lawless Village IPA and Bohemian Pilsner.

The beers, which have been accredited by Coeliac UK, are being stocked in over 100 bars, pubs and restaurants in Edinburgh and across central Scotland, after only four months of trading.

Lawless Village IPA, which featured in Aldi's Scottish Summer Beer Festival, is named after an area in Portobello where the founders are from. The Bohemian Pilsner has been nominated Best Lager or Pilsner at the Scottish Beer Awards.

Brewery manager Kieran Middleton said: "People have really embraced the fact that we were founded by coeliacs and that we're committed to producing only gluten-free beers. We're not interested in producing gluten-free versions of bland lagers and beers at industrial scale. Our beers are small batch, hand-crafted and gluten-free without the need to add anything.

"We are continuing to see momentum building in the demand for gluten-free food and drink, both in the UK and internationally, and our new distribution partners will help us to fulfil this demand. The brewery is investing heavily in research and development and we're hoping to bring new beers to the market in the coming months."

Scottish distributors including Craft Beer Clan Scotland, Gordon & MacPhail, Inverarity Morton, Food and Drink Hub for Scotland and Green City have taken on both the new beers.
