Endurance athletes stress their bodies with long training hours. Many are conscious of limiting their intake of inflammatory substances, such as gluten, because their hard training already produces inflammation of muscles, tendons and ligaments.
After tasting New Planet Beer, athletes voted on the beers and their lifestyle choices.
- Nearly two dozen triathletes were evenly split on their favorite New Planet beers – Off Grid Pale Ale and Tread Lightly Ale tied as the favorite, with 3R Raspberry Ale coming in close behind.
- One third of the athletes are reducing or avoiding gluten in their diets, but two thirds report that they would reduce gluten if they experienced better training results.
- Two thirds reported that New Planet Beer tasted better than they expected. Five percent would rather drink beer with gluten.
- Sixty percent would recommend New Planet Beer to all their friends, and 23% would recommend it to friends who follow a gluten-free diet.
Thanks to the Boulder Triathlon Club for sampling New Planet Beer and giving their opinions.
