We’d randomly spotted Heathen’s Brewing while in the area and made a mental note to check them out. They specialize in offering 100% gluten free beer, the only brewery that does this in western Canada.
Hours. Only open on Friday and Saturday (3:00pm to 7:00pm).
We dropped in on a Friday afternoon (around 4:45pm). There’s two picnic tables outside along with a couple tables and three bar stools inside.
Service was friendly (one of the son’s was manning the front) and personable.
They also have a large selection of board games.
A dozen beers on tap and all of them are gluten free.
You’d have a hard time distinguishing that if you weren’t told ahead of time.
Single cans are $5.25 to $5.75 otherwise a 4 pack ranges from $20.25 to $21.50.
Peanut butter stout smelled exactly like peanut butter. Good flavour.
Cherry sour didn’t have much cherry notes; more like a golden sour.
Coconut porter was very coconut forward; tasted like a sweetened coconut.
Chocolate coffee stout smelled exactly like coffee. Strong coffee flavour and a smooth texture similar to Guinness.
If you’re celiac, check out HB for all your gluten free beer needs! Hidden gem of a brewery.
