Lagunitas is a popular brewing company based out of Petaluma, California and Chicago, Illinois. Their ‘Hoppy Refresher’ product is a non-alcoholic beverage, also referred to as sparkling hop water. It’s used as a mixer at many bars, including Buffalo Wild Wings, and also is great on it’s own as a seltzer beverage.
As Lagunitas Hoppy Refresher grows in popularity, many people are wondering if it’s gluten free . . . . . .
Is Lagunitas Hoppy Refresher Gluten Free?
Yes, it’s free from gluten and wheat ingredients! According to Lagunitas, ‘Sparkling water? NA seltzer? IPA-inspired Refresher? However you see this clear beverage, we view it as a fresh take on an old tradition … A variation on a theme of 25+ years of edgy brewing at the edge of brewing. Massively dry-hopped like other Lagunitas brews, but without the alcohol, carbs, cals, or gluten. Whoa.’
The brewery shares that ‘Hoppy Refresher is a zippy and zingy highly carbonated dry-hopped sparkling water. We added a pinch of brewer’s yeast to biotransformate the hops and pull out terpenes (AKA aroma compounds) of bubblegum, lime, lemon, tangerine, and a bit of pine.’
