New Planet Beer was requested by String Cheese Incident’s Kyle Hollingsworth for Kyle’s 2011 Brew Fest! We were able to provide gluten-free beer to those who would not otherwise have had the ability to enjoy a refreshing beer at a brew fest. Both gluten-free and non-gluten-free consumers all enjoyed the light refreshing taste of Tread Lightly Ale, 3R Raspberry Ale and Off Grid Pale Ale.
By the end of the day everyone’s thirst was quenched on a particularly hot day. The live music, wonderful beer, food and great fans made the event a success. New Planet Beer looks forward to being represented at Kyle’s beer festival in the future!
A gluten-free pub crawl may be wishful thinking, but wouldn’t that be fun! Now that the weather is getting nicer and the evenings longer, we thought it would be a great time to introduce some of the unique Denver pubs that offer New Planet Beer. Enjoy an evening out on the town, or create your own pub crawl with these three great locations:
Home to more than 200 rotating taps, Falling Rock Taphouse is a beer giant in Denver. While the taps are ever-changing, you can always get a cold gluten-free Tread Lightly Ale at Falling Rock. The Taphouse features a large outdoor patio with ample seating for sunny days as well as a fleet of pool tables and dart boards in the basement. Upon entering the Falling Rock Taphouse, you’ll immediately notice the 2200+ beer bottles lining the walls. These bottles are, in fact, the personal collection of the manager, Chris. New Planet Beer is proud to be served at the Falling Rock Taphouse, with its vast collection of beers and clear taste for quality. The Taphouse is located at 1919 Blake Street.
Uptown Brothers Brewing Company provides a casual sports bar experience on Capitol Hill and boasts a large beer menu of 32 taps and 61 bottles. With 19 47” HDTVs on location, you’re sure to have a good view of the important sporting events of the day. If sports games aren’t your thing, Uptown Brothers boasts Tuesday Two-fer Trivia nights and the occasional local band on weekends. Uptown Brothers Brewing Company proudly serves cold bottles of Tread Lightly Ale and offers sensational late-night happy hour specials, including $2.00 well-drinks and domestic beers. Uptown Brothers Brewing Company is located at 320 E. Colfax Avenue.
A sibling of Boulder’s eclectic Mountain Sun Pub and Southern Sun Pub, the Vine Street Pub offers all of the same bohemian charm and delicious beer that patrons of the Boulder locations have come to love. Enjoy a gluten-free Tread Lightly Ale on their sunny patio or duck inside for some friendly conversation at the bar. Loyal fans have awarded the Pub a solid four stars on Yelp.com. The Vine Street Pub features an array of entertainment from live music to comedy on Sundays. The Vine Street Pub is located near City Park at 1700 Vine Street.
1. Find a store near you that carries New Planet Beer.
2. Purchase Tread Lightly Ale. (the lighter color makes it easier for you to create the perfect shade of green)
3. Purchase green food coloring. (make sure it’s gluten-free)
4. Pour Tread Lightly Ale into a pint glass or beer mug.
5. Add a few drops of green food coloring into your glass and stir. (add more based on the tone of green you are going for)
6. Cheers to the Saint Patrick’s Day and that you can enjoy the fun holiday with a great tasting gluten-free beer.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
With over 3 million people in the U.S. diagnosed with Celiac disease, restaurants and other establishments are changing their menus to accommodate their gluten-free clientele. Many stadiums across the country have begun to offer gluten-free options, from gluten-free hotdog and hamburger buns to cookies and beer!
Unfortunately, for those of you headed to Dallas for Super Bowl weekend will have to bring your own game day snacks, the new stadium doesn’t have gluten-free options. However, according to the website, they do permit people with “medical requirements and special needs” who can call ahead to bring in food and beverages. If you are planning on attending the game and want to bring in some gluten-free snacks, or some New Planet Beer, give the Cowboys Stadium Guest Services a call at (817) 892-4161.
For those of you watching the game from home or at a friends house, pick up some New Planet Beer at your local Colorado liquor store.
Here is a recipe to go along with your New Planet Beer.

Add the lime juice, stir to combine, and remove from heat.
To assemble: Lay one tortilla in a hot skillet. Add 1/4 cup filling and then top with 2 tablespoon grated cheese. Top with another tortilla and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly browned on the bottom tortilla. Flip and cook on the other side until slightly browned and the cheese has melted.

After a long day of skiing there are few things that sound more delicious and rewarding than a nice juicy burger and an ice-cold beer. For those of us that are gluten-free, eating on the mountain can be a rather arduous task.
Some mountains are expanding their menu with more gluten free options. At Two Elk Lodge on Vail Mountain, they have labeled all gluten-free options and even have gluten-free brownies!
We have compiled a list of gluten-free friendly ski snacks to help those out who don’t want to stop ripping the pow just to have a bite to eat. These snacks are easy to pack and can easily be eaten on the chair.
Justins Nut Butter
Take your pick, from honey peanut butter, to maple almond butter, or even chocolate hazelnut butter, Justins has you covered while on the slopes. All flavors come in jars, and most come in convenient squeeze packs that fit perfectly in a pocket. Pair with an apple, celery, or some crackers and you have a protein packed snack. Make sure to kneed the squeeze pack first, as they can become very cold while skiing.
Larabars are a great source of energy and protein packed into a wonderful little bar. There are tons of flavors, and they are made from fresh and natural ingredients. Pick them up at your local health food store.
Corn Tortilla Wrap
A great little pick-me-up and easy to make. Take a gluten-free corn tortilla throw down your favorite condiments, hummus, turkey, avocado and roll it up. They are simple to put together and delicious. They are easy to put in a pocket as well, although they tend to crush easier upon impact.
New Planet Beer
Maybe not the easiest to pack in your ski coat, but if you are skiing in Colorado there’s a good chance that the ski lodge offers New Planet Beer. To be sure, check out our Beer Locator. Type in the zip code of the ski resort and see if the lodge shows up in the list.

New Planet Beer attended the world’s first International Beer Bloggers & Online Media Conference that took place November 5-7, 2010 in Boulder, Colorado. Beer bloggers, industry bloggers, and other beer and social media professionals gathered from throughout North America and beyond to meet, learn, and share. What a fun event!
Beer bloggers shared topics ranging from blogging best practices to beer and food pairings. Another hot topic was how to better connect women and beer, which turned out to be a heated conversation…but in the end, it turned out to be an extra reason to raise the glass, so everyone was happy.
The most exciting event at the conference was called Live Beer Blogging, in which New Planet Beer participated. It was kind of like speed dating, but with a lot of beer. Bloggers were seated at 12 round tables of 8-10 people per table, who were armed with computers with a constant connection to their blog, facebook and twitter accounts. We had five minutes per table to pour a sample, educate them about our beer, our company, and field questions. At the end of each time slot, a bell would sound and we’d run to the next table. After 60 minutes of the New Planet Beer pitch, voices were lost, but we had a wonderful time connecting with these beer connoisseurs.
New Planet Beer was the only gluten-free beer represented as both Tread Lightly Ale and 3R Raspberry Ale were sampled. With a heavy gluten friendly audience, our gluten-free beer fared well. Here is a snap shot of what was said about New Planet Beer.

Thanks to all the beer bloggers for such a great event!
