Omission Beer, from Portland, an Oregon-based Craft Brew Alliance, is raising the bar for traditional beer made with ingredients, such as malted barley in their Omission Lager and Pale Ale products. Omission received the Recognition Seal for meeting the strict criteria of the Celiac Sprue Association (CSA), the largest non-profit celiac support group in America, a trusted source of information on products to encourage quality nutrition and empower consumers.

“We take very seriously our mission of ‘celiacs helping celiacs.’ Omission Beer clearly meets our strict standards as a risk-free choice for Celiacs,” said Mary Schluckebier, executive director, Celiac Sprue Association.

“As innovative manufacturing processes and gluten-detection methods emerge, the variety of food and beverage choices for celiacs and other gluten sensitive consumers is expanding. Omission Beer is an important — and delicious — example.”

Current information on CSA and celiac disease is available at the CSA website, or by calling toll free 877-CSA-4-CSA.
