Gluten-free beer

I have a few friends who are allergic to glutens and you may too but may not even know it, it seems to be a fairly popular allergy.

Anheuser-Busch has rolled out a gluten-free beer that's made from Sorghum, which doesn't have the proteins in it that cause the gluten reaction in people. RedBridge is the first nationally-available gluten-free/wheat-free beer as there are a bunch of local brews that can make the same claim. Obviously it's a big enough market that the A-B folks think they need to cover it.

The reviews so far are positive, though I'm sure it's because people who used to not get beer at all are now allowed to enjoy one.
