gluten free beer on tap

Following Australian-first gluten free beer tap takeovers in 2021, we're back on the road, pouring at venues across Australia this March to support Coeliac Australia in driving awareness around gluten intolerances. 

This year, second venues in Adelaide and Perth have joined the gluten free beer extravaganza, and we are returning to the capital, after Canberra locals enjoyed the city’s first ever gluten free beer tap takeover at The Dickson Taphouse last year.

Coeliac Awareness Week runs from 13-20 March every year, but some venues across Australia will be pouring award winning gluten free beers – of which many have never left our taproom – from Saturday 11th. 

“We obviously do a lot of beer events, and it was certainly one of the most successful ones,” Brewski co-owner Antoinette Pollock told Brews News in 2021. 

“We really wanted to support it, we knew TWØBAYS did great beers so we weren’t concerned about putting them on our taps, it’s a quality product.” 

Pollock said 90 per cent of people there were gluten-intolerant or coeliacs. 
“It was massive – we certainly had a percentage of Brewski typical beers for a few other taps we had, but the majority of people were there because of gluten-free beers and a substantial gluten-free menu as well.”  

Some of these venues have supported us since the beginning – and others are pouring our beer for the first time,” said TWØBAYS Founder Richard Jeffares, who was inspired to open the gluten free brewery after being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease in 2015. 

Similar to ‘Good Beer Week’ for those who avoid gluten in their diet, a venue in every state capital will be pouring at least three different TWØBAYS gluten free beers on at one time (up to 17 different beers across all venues) – including our new top-secret limited edition release – for the duration of Coeliac Awareness week, so that friends and family can explore craft beer regardless of gluten intolerances.  

The Duke of Brunswick in Adelaide will pour 14 different TWØBAYS beers on rotation through the week, while Sweeney's in Sydney will have 12, new venue The Kewdale Tavern in Perth will have 11, and Petition Beer Corner (Perth), The Dickson Taphouse (Canberra) and The Fox Hotel Collingwood (Melbourne) will have seven. 

And all these venues are ensuring their gluten free customers have the full craft beer experience, with gluten free food offerings.  

“We’ve partnered with these venues because we don’t think it’s fair for people to miss out,” said Jeffares.  

“Sampling a brewery’s range is something I’ve really missed since I was diagnosed six years ago.”  
“Along with comparing notes, flavours and aromas, and just having a great time over quality beer – that’s what it’s all about. So we’ve asked these great venues to

‘Free The Taps’. We hope people will get around anyone they know that avoids gluten this Coeliac Awareness Week and get people talking about it. These people no longer have to miss out – they can drink great beer like everyone else!”  

Venues will either be serving TWØBAYS gold medal-winning Pale Ale, XPA or IPA alongside other limited-edition beers that can normally only be sampled in the Victorian brewery’s Taproom. 

“For me, it’s about those who avoid gluten being able to join in supporting their local and exploring different styles and tasting amazing flavours,” added Richard Jeffares.   

“We’re pushing the gluten free beer boundaries in Australia – this is the third time we’ve run interstate tap takeovers."
