With St. Patrick's Day on the way, if you're gluten-free, toasting the holiday with a beer requires a bit more planning. Turns out, though, finding a gluten-free beer that lives up to any beer lovers' standards isn't as challenging as one might think. These bottles boast classic flavors like hops, citrus and floral notes in varieties that include pale ale, lager and even IPA. You’ll be able to enjoy these options just as much as a regular beer. Green food coloring, optional.

The flavor could be described as intense and fruity — and absolutely, as the name conveys, delicious.
