Portland's first gluten-free brewery now selling beers in stores

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Rose City has long been known as a beer mecca, but a local brewery is doing something that has never been done before in the city's beer scene.

Portland's first gluten-free brewery is now brewing, bottling and distributing beers out of its southeast Portland production facility.

Harvester Brewing uses chestnuts from a McMinnville farm instead of barley, wheat and rye. The chestnuts are roasted over the course of an hour in a gas-fired nut roaster to prepare them for the beer.

"By roasting them, you're building some complexity. It creates a really nice flavor from the chestnut - that slightly roasted nut flavor," said brewer James Neumeister.

The beers are available at restaurants, bottle shops and grocery stores throughout Portland, including at New Seasons Markets.
