After a long day at work, some people enjoy a good drink to unwind from the day. Beer and other alcohols are not safe for drinkers with a gluten allergy. Malt and barley are two typical ingredients used in alcoholic beverages that are on the list of grains to avoid when living a gluten free lifestyle. Many studies and articles have been printed that say the distillation process can eliminate the gluten particles in the beverage. Reactions differ from person to person depending on the amount of contamination, so the choice is left to the discretion of the individual.

Finding a good-tasting beverage that is also gluten free can be difficult. There are many options provided depending on taste preferences. Select hard ciders, ales, liquors, and wines provide several gluten free options. With the increased awareness, thanks to social media and celebrity endorsement, more companies are manufacturing products that cater to gluten intolerance.

The following list mentions just a few of the popular brands available in most grocery and liquor stores.
- Woodchuck Hard Ciders
- Angry Orchard Hard Ciders
- New Grist Pilsner
- Redbridge Light Amber
- Amaretto Disaronno Originale
- Seagram's
- Tanqueray
- Jagermeister
- Bacardi 151
- Malibu Original
- Jose Cuervo
- Patron

There are many more options available, but readers are encouraged to look at the manufacturer's websites for individual products to ensure it meets the safety requirements of the individual's needs.
