Kelowna brewery wins gold in gluten-free category for 2nd year in a row

Kelowna’s Grey Fox Brewing has once again won gold in a gluten-free category.

The dedicated gluten-free brewery secured another win this weekend, this time with three of its craft beers.

The Kelowna-based brewery won:

  • Gold for “Quick Witted”

  • Silver for “Prolific Pale”

  • Bronze for “Humble Lager”

In a news release, owner and brewmaster Chris Neufeld says the win is “immensely” rewarding.

“I’m celiac and can’t drink traditional beer without getting very sick,” says Neufeld.

“I wanted to make beers that have all the characteristics of those made with barley and wheat, but using ingredients that won’t make people like me ill. It’s rewarding to know that Grey Fox beers are not only safe for people who can’t have gluten, but also tasty enough to stand up against the best brews in Canada.”

The awards were held in Hamilton Ontario on May 25 alongside the Canadian Brewers Conference.

Over 60 beer styles were awarded in four categories.

This isn’t the first time Grey Fox Brewing’s beers have been awarded.

Last year, they also won gold at the Canadian Brewing Awards for “Quick Witted.”

They also swept the gluten-free category at the Canada Beer Cup in Niagara Falls with another “Quick Witted” gold, silver for "Humble Lager", and bronze for their "Buckwild Stout".
