Commercial Gluten Free Brewing and Breweries
Dedicated vs Non-Dedicated
Dedicated gluten free breweries do not brew any gluten (i.e. barley) containing beers on premises -- there is no shared milling, brewing or packaging equipment. Yeast is gluten-free media only (not propagated using gluten containing material).
