Discover the taste of a small batch craft beer without the gluten.
Tasting Room Hours: Thursday to Sunday from 2 to 6 pm.
Founded by a beer lover who could not drink conventional beer any more after being diagnosed with Celiac’s disease, Grey Fox is the Okanagan’s only gluten-free brewery. Brewer Chris Neufeld spent years experimenting with making gluten-free beer at home, but was often disappointed by the results until he learned the science behind unlocking the starches in gluten-free grains like millet and rice. After that, his friends couldn’t tell the difference between his GF beer and the conventional beer they drank, which gave him and his wife Suzanne the encouragement they needed to build this brewery.
While some conventional breweries produce gluten-reduced beers with barley and wheat by using special enzymes that eliminate most of the gluten in the finished product, true gluten-free beer can only be brewed in a dedicated facility where glutenous ingredients are never even allowed in the building. That is the case at Grey Fox Brewing.
Grey Fox is located in Lake Country on the north side of Kelowna.
