Have you ever wanted to explore the wonderful world of craft beers without risking gluten intake? Or maybe be able to talk craft beer with all your friends who drink heavy gluten craft beer? Or maybe you just want to show someone the amazing gluten-free New Planet Beer you’ve been drinking lately? Now you can with the “Craft Beer App” for iPhone.

This month the “Craft Beer App” by Affect Global is being featured by Apple. It lets you explore at great detail the world of American craft beers. Everything from serving temp, to notes on taste, to brewing information and much much more. Plus, we are happy to announce that New Planet Beer is a part of the craft beer selection.

Here is what the LA Times had to say about it: “Explore American craft beers with this crafty app. I immediately looked up Allagash Tripel Reserve and found detailed info and tasting notes, including the recommended serving temp (40 to 50 degrees)… And it costs less than a few sips of beer.”

In fact, right now you can grab the “Craft Beer App” on sale for $0.99 instead of the usual price of $1.99.

If you are interested in learning more craft beers, head over to the iTunes app store to download the app, and once you have it installed don’t forget to check out the entry for the three New Planet beers!


Being gluten-free doesn’t mean Happy Hour has to come to an end. Besides New Planet Gluten-Free Beer, there are other drinks you can enjoy without the Gluten. Take a look below for some examples of other gluten-free drinks.

As always, make sure to double check the drink label to be sure and please drink responsibly!

  • Armagnac – made from grapes
  • Bourbon – Makers Mark
  • Brandy- made from fruit
  • Champagne- made from fruit
  • Cider – fermented from apples or other fruits. Some are safe, however, many add barley for enzymes and flavor
    • Old Deadly Cider
  • Cognac – made from grapes
  • Gin- widely considered gluten-free due to the fact that it is distilled, but may cause issues for some
  • Grappa- most types
  • Kahlua- but not for those with a dairy free diet
  • Kirschwasser (cherry liqueur)
  • Margarita Mix:
    • Jose Cuervo.
