WILDE Gluten Free Pale Ale wins a Silver medal at the 2014 AIBA

AIBA_2014_SilverMedal_CMYK_TRIM The Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) is renowned for celebrating and promoting brewing excellence in both Australia and around the world.

The AIBA is the largest competition for the beer industry in the Asia Pacific region.

Medals are awarded according to a stringent points system to reflect quality standards.

In 2014 a record number of 1,560 brews were entered from 294 brewers in 31 countries and were assessed by an expert panel of 40 judges from Belgium, Norway, United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.

This year no Gold Medals in the Gluten-Free section were awarded, so our Silver Medal is the highest rank, and a great honour for Koala Beer Pty Ltd.

Koala Beer went WILDE - Gluten Free

Beer is usually made from barley and/or wheat. Australian Koala Beer Pty Ltd, has had a technical breakthrough with alternative grains that do not contain gluten, to produce a quality Gluten Free beer at a reasonable price.

WILDE tastes like normal beer! It is a cloudy beer with live yeast, a residue is normal and can vary with age due to the natural, continuing, brewing processes in the bottle. Bottle-conditioned just like a Coopers, WILDE is not filtered or pasteurized and is preservative free.

What is Coeliac Disease?

…..Coeliac, Celiac, or Sprue disease, or Gluten intolerance, or Nontropical sprue, or Gluten-sensitive enteropathy?

So many names!
In Australia we normally use the term Coeliac Disease (also in NZ and the UK). In the USA the disease is spelt Celiac, but is the same thing.

Coeliac/celiac disease, is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats. This damage affects the ability to absorb nutrients properly and the person becomes malnourished and unwell.

The disease can develop at any time in life, but people who have a family member with coeliac, celiac disease, are at greater risk for developing the condition. It affects approximately 1 in 100 Australians. However 75% currently remain undiagnosed. This means that approximately 160,000 Australians have coeliac disease, but don’t yet know it.

The difficulty for “coeliacs”, as sufferers are known, has been that so much of the recent western diet has been based on wheat and includes grain derivatives containing gluten. A milder version of the problem of the body having difficulty dealing with gluten digestion is often called Gluten Intolerance.

The good news is that there are now many GLUTEN FREE foods and drinks to replace products that contain gluten. GLUTEN FREE options are available from most quality outlets to supply the growing demand by those on gluten free diets.

WILDE GLUTEN FREE BEER is produced by Koala Beer Pty Ltd in response to the need for GLUTEN FREE beverages. Beer is normally made from barley and/or wheat but Koala Beer Pty Ltd has had a technical breakthrough. WILDE GLUTEN FREE BEER is made with an alternative grain that does not contain gluten, and it tastes like normal beer!
