Over the weekend, I was spending some time with a friend who was telling me all about how she couldn’t drink most beers, bread’s and a whole list of other items that she can’t have due to her gluten intolernace.

I have heard this a fair bit over the last year as I delve more into the world of food and drink, so I started asking around and found that a lot of celiacs and people with gluten intolerance have issues with most beers, ordering whatever they want at a restaurant, but even more than that, the common issue seemed to be that most were effected by going out to dinner with their friends and not being able to eat 3/4 of what was on offer, so what are the gluten free options?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just all go out and everyone at the table would be able to eat whatever they wanted? The answer is yes!

So when I was recently invited out for a dinner with Daura Dramm at Kanpai Snack Bar in Toronto, to learn all about their gluten free beer and enjoy a meal that was also, you guessed it, gluten free, I jumped at the chance, and while I don’t have any gluten issues, I do have an issue with everyone not being able to enjoy an amazing dinner with friends.
