Gluten-Free Beer Disney World
Many vacationers like to relax in the hot sun and toss back a cold brew while on vacation. Therefore, those who are gluten-free may struggle to find a way to imbibe safely. Here is how to enjoy your suds at Disney!
Gluten-free beer is brewed with other ingredients than barley and wheat. While these grains have a distinctive taste, they are an excellent replacement for a frosty mug of beer. These beers are brewed from buckwheat (which is not wheat), millet rice, and sorghum.
Also, brewers adjust the gluten so it is less than 20 ppm. Because this amount is the cutoff to be certified gluten-free. Furthermore, there are several schools of thought regarding the safety of this threshold. Some true Celiacs are too sensitive to tolerate even the slightest amount of gluten.
Most of all, we love gluten-free beer Disney World!
Unable to choke down gluten-free beer? Consequently, the other carbonated option is hard cider. (Unless we are talking sparkling wine, which is a different animal, indeed). Cider is essentially fermented apple juice. It’s naturally gluten-free. Consequently, the alcohol and sugar content vary greatly between types.
Hence, I put together a list of gluten-free beer and ciders available throughout Walt Disney World.

Do you find all the available brews unacceptable? If you have access to a vehicle: the liquor store has locations nearby. Even if you are staying on property without a vehicle, there are options.
You can request a ride with a ride-sharing app like Uber or Lyft to pick you up. You can also go the old fashioned way and try calling a taxi cab. If you are sober or have a designated driver, you could head over to the closest rental car station to get you to the beer section. You can also order beer through the local grocery delivery service, but the gluten-free options are more limited and usually a hard cider. Finally, you have the option to switch to team grape and order some wine from Amazon Prime.
