Short’s Space Rock now gluten free

Space Rock, the newest flagship beer from Short’s Brewing Company is now crafted to remove gluten. Space Rock, an American Pale Ale, joins the flagship lineup alongside Huma Lupa Licious, Soft Parade, Bellaire Brown, and Local’s.

New Space Rock from ShortsAccording to Short’s Director of Quality, Tyler Glaze “The recipe for Space Rock always contained Brewer’s Clarex, a naturally occurring enzyme, to remove chill haze. The same enzyme eliminates gluten and we suspected that the enzyme completely removed gluten just like in Alien Einstein. So, we decided to send a bottle out to be tested at the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program’s lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The results came back great! It turned out that all we needed to do was add a little more Brewer’s Clarex and the gluten was completely removed from the beer. The taste hasn’t changed a bit. It’s still the same, delicious, moderately bitter American Pale Ale with floral and orange aromas but with the added bonus of the gluten being removed.”

“We are stoked to release Space Rock with the ‘Crafted to Remove Gluten’ labeling now. Such a tasty beer. We hope our customers are as excited and thirsty as us!”

In order to distinguish Space Rock that has been crafted to remove gluten from the original release, Tanya Whitley, the artist behind many Short’s beer labels, updated the artwork. You’ll see changes to Joe’s spacecraft and outfit as well as a new “Crafted to Remove Gluten” insignia.
