100% Gluten Free. 100% Great Beer.

Glutenberg History

In 2010, the idea of brewing a gluten-free beer in Quebec was first discussed by two long-time friends and entrepreneurs. One of the co-founders, who had been living with gluten intolerance for several years, remained dissatisfied with the gluten-free beer on the market. He and his partner then saw a unique opportunity to meet a growing need and to realize what both of them had long dreamed of: running their own business. This is how the two acolytes launched their business with the aim of pushing the limits of gluten-free brewing.

In 2011, after more than a year of research and development, the company’s very first beer is launched on the Quebec market: the Glutenberg Blonde. Shortly afterwards, the Pale Ale Américaine and the Rousse followed, allowing the brewery to end its first year of existence with a trio of innovative products.

The microbrewery enjoyed its very first international success at the 2012 World Beer Cup, where Glutenberg beers won all three medals in the “Gluten-Free Beer” category at the world’s most prestigious brewing competition.

After this resounding victory, Glutenberg gained a very high public profile and the distribution of its beers increased, both in Quebec and the United States. It also was from this moment that the head brewer began to create a series of more experimental seasonal beers, from which several unusual gluten-free products were born, such as Gose, Stouts, Double IPA, etc.
