IPA
IPA

Omission IPA is a bright, hop forward Northwest Style IPA produced in the spirit of the original IPAs shipped from the UK to India in the late 1800’s. The heavy-handed use of Cascade and Summit hops give it notable pine, citrus, and grapefruit aromas and flavors. The bitterness is what you would expect of a NW IPA but this beer is balanced and smooth due to the perfect level of malt sweetness. The finish is crisp, clean, and refreshing – it’s a true IPA lover’s IPA.

O moments

Since launching Omission beer, we’ve heard so many great stories from our fans about their experiences with Omission beer. Some of our fans haven’t been able to enjoy a beer brewed with traditional beer ingredients for a long time. Others have never tried a craft beer brewed with malted barley. We like to call these moments of discovery Moments. If you've tried Omission, we'd love to hear from you.

Test Results

It isn’t just what we took out, it’s what we left in.

We’re committed to ensuring that every bottle of Omission beer meets our team’s standards. Each batch of Omission Pale Ale and Omission Lager is tested by an independent lab using the R5 Competitive ELISA for gluten content. Although there is scientific evidence supporting this testing, the evidence is not conclusive. Omission beer may contain gluten.

See your bottle’s test results: the date code stamped on every bottle of Omission beer corresponds to a batch of Omission Lager or Omission Pale Ale, and you can use that code to view your bottle’s test results. Enter the code from your bottle and take comfort in knowing the results of your beer’s R5 Competitive ELISA test results.

F.A.Q

How Many Calories are in Omission Beer?

Omission Lager contains 140 calories, 11 grams carbs and 2 grams protein per 12-ounce serving.
Omission Pale Ale contains 175 calories, 15 grams carbs and 2 grams protein per 12-ounce serving.
Omission IPA contains 195 calories, 15 grams carbs and 2 grams protein per 12-ounce serving.

Is Omission beer gluten free?

Omission beers are brewed just like other great craft beers, with malted barley, hops, water, and yeast but are crafted to remove gluten. Once the beers are transferred to the fermentation tanks, we add a brewing enzyme called Brewers Clarex™ which breaks apart the gluten protein chains. The beers are then packaged in a closed environment to eliminate any cross contamination risk. A growing body of peer reviewed scientific literature supports that our process is effective in the reduction of gluten peptides. Each batch of Omission Pale Ale, Lager and IPA is tested both internally and by an independent lab using the R5 Competitive ELISA for gluten content and to date, every batch of Omission has measured at levels less than 10ppm, the lowest level detectable with the best test available. Although there is scientific evidence supporting this testing, the evidence is not conclusive. Omission beer may contain gluten. See your bottles test results at www.omissiontests.com.

How is Omission beer tested for gluten?

Our testing protocol provides duplicative data points for every batch tested by corroborating our in house lab results against an independent laboratory. This method is the R5 Competitive ELISA and it has been validated by reputable scientific organizations – the AACC International and the American Society of Brewing Chemists – for testing gluten in fermented foods and beverages. In addition, the AOAC recommended that the method be accepted as Official First Action which allows more data to be collected and analyzed. The R5 Competitive ELISA is the best available analytical method to quantify gluten in fermented products. Although existing evidence supports that gluten levels are greatly reduced in our beers, the current test for measuring gluten has not been scientifically validated and Omission beers may contain gluten.

How is the gluten removed from Omission beer?

Omission beers are brewed just like other great craft beers, with malted barley, hops, water, and yeast.

The beers are then packaged in a closed environment to eliminate any cross contamination risk.

Is Omission beer brewed with sorghum, buckwheat, rice, tapioca, or quinoa?

No - Omission beers are brewed with only barley malt, hops, water and yeast.

How long have Omission beers been brewed?

Omission beers have been brewed and packaged since 2012. However, our world-class brewing team has been brewing craft beer since 1984 and brewed their first gluten-free beer using sorghum, cassava, and honey in 2006.  The Omission beers today are the result of years of research and hard work from our team.

Where is Omission beer brewed?
