Last week, our NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group hosted a happy hour at The Village PourHouse at 64 3rd Ave (corner of 11th) in the East Village. It turned out to be a great night with a nice group of new and returning group members. This bar carries over 80 beers including gluten-free RedBridge made by Anheuser-Busch, Inc and gluten-free Woodpecker Cider. The staff at the Village PourHouse had tubs of the gluten-free drinks on the bar top for our group members to enjoy. It was great to partake in a "normal" happy hour with two-for-one hard cider deals and discounted beers. David Freeberg, the General Manager of the Village PourHouse, said he was open to selling more gluten-free beers if there was an interest amongst the clientèle. According to one of our group members, one of the staff at the Village PourHouse has Celiac and suggested they start carrying the gluten-free beer. Please support the Village PourHouse and other bars and restaurants that carry gluten-free beers and food; this is the way to thank them for catering to us!
