Omission Redefines Gluten-Free

Omission Logo

Omission is a new brand from Widmer Brothers Brewing, and it’s the first US craft beer to be classified as gluten-free while still being made using traditional ingredients.

How?

Magic.

Ok, well maybe not magic, but it is pretty magical that they’ve managed to remain gluten-free while still using malted barley in their brewing process.

Omission is available as either a lager or a pale ale, and while their initial distribution plans only include Oregon, it’s easy to imagine that they have much larger plans for this beer.

For a look at how they make and test gluten free beer, check out this video:

Reusable Leather Six-Pack Carton

Leather Six-Pack Holder

If you’re looking for a classy way to carry around a six-pack, then check out the Reusable Leather Six-Pack Carton from Etsy seller Walnut Studio.

Walnut Studio

Nicknamed “The Spartan Carton”, this stripped-down, minimalist beer box is made of leather rings that have been riveted together and then riveted to a central masonite handle, and is designed to last a lifetime.

It’s available in either brown or black leather, and compliments their Six-Pack Bicycle Frame Cinch for easy two-wheel transport.

Plus, each one is made to order out of a workshop in Portland, Oregon, so you can rest assured that you’ll be supporting a true artist with passion for the product.
