I write a lot about alcohol on this site. You may say I have a writing about drinking problem. Confused about gluten “removed” beer (hint…it’s not safe)? Not sure which alcohols you can drink? Pull up a chair, grab a gluten FREE beer and let’s learn.
Let me be clear. I really like beer. In 2008, I truly did fear A life without beer. Red Bridge was here. But it wasn’t good beer. Bards then drew near. One taste and…oh dear. Then a whisper in my ear “New Planet tastes […]Read More
I had a dream last night. I was at a gluten-free convention. This one booth had two different rice dishes set up for people to taste. I grabbed a fork and excitedly took a few bites of one of the dishes. Only after I […]Read More
Ok…see if you can following the bouncing ball. Corona is not a gluten-free beer. But it has been tested to under 20ppm, so it is a gluten-free beer. Yet it’s made with barley, so it’s not a gluten-free beer. But according to the FDA, […]Read More
Yes…I know…another Springsteen reference. What can I say? We both grew up in Freehold, NJ and his music just speaks to me. And for those who don’t understand how the blog title has anything to do with Springsteen, that is just a reminder that […]Read More

Who I am. And who I'm not.
I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.
I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
