Foodery, but their efforts at making my life as a celiac disease sufferer easier and more enjoyable deserve recognition:) Not only does the Foodery offer a wide array of gluten free beers, but now they even offer gluten free bread for all their sandwiches!! I couldn't believe my eyes when I first read the poster exclaiming the option of gluten free flatbread that could be substituted on any sandwich for an additional dollar. It seemed too good to be true... but it was! And I am so happy about it:)
I ordered the Roast Beef and Swiss on GF bread, which comes with romaine, cucumber, tomatoes and horseradish sauce. The sandwich originally cost $6.00, so with GF bread it was $7.00. I watched the deli-man make sure to cover his working area with paper before constructing the sandwich in order to avoid cross contamination.
As he was finishing up, I wandered over to the gluten free beer section and picked out something I had yet to try, the St. Peter's Sorgham Beer. It was light, smooth, and the perfect companion to the spicy horseradish sauce in my sandwich. Once again, I found myself in pure gluten free heaven:)
According to their website St. Peter's Sorghum beer, also known as "G-Free Beer" was launched in August of 2007. It's accurately described as a clean, crisp gluten free ale with a pilsner lager style finish and aromas of citrus and mandarin from American Amarillo hops.
The Foodery is located at 2nd and Poplar in Philadelphia. If you're GF, and you live anywhere near Philadelphia, it's a must visit! Yet another example of how much easier it's getting for us celiac sufferers. Good stuff!
Just So You Know...
The information presented in this blog is intended to educate and entertainment. However, I'm not a medical expert. I also do not know absolutely everything about Celiac Disease. What I do know has been learned through trial and error, research, and what has been taught to me by friends who also share my food-related affliction. Please take the time to do your own research about Celiac Disease and gluten-related issues. I have a list of links to useful resources along the left-side of this blog. Also, feel free to cross-check my statements. If you find contrary information, please let me know. Thanks so much for visiting Trav's Gone Gluten Free!
