Comeragh Challenger Gluten Free Ale

Comeragh Challenger Gluten Free Ale

A light and refreshing gluten free ale, single hopped with Challenger.

One of our core range and certified Gluten Free since 2015, Comeragh Challenger is an English style pale ale (or bitter) hopped solely with Challenger, an English hop used in many traditional bitters. The malty profile and floral hops make for a delicate and understated ale, and at 3.8%, this is an easy-drinking beer that will be perfect for summer barbecue days!

Comeragh Challenger is listed in the Coeliac Society of Ireland Food List as a coeliac-friendly beer.

This lighter session ale is best served at a lower temperature, from 8-12°C.

As with all our beers, the bottles will contain a yeast sediment which is a by-product of the bottle conditioning process. This sediment is completely harmless and fine to drink, but if you prefer a clearer beer then leave the last drop in the bottle.
