It looks as though America's favorite past-time can now be fully enjoyed by gluten-free spectators! Ballparks such as Coors Field in Denver, Nationals Park in Washington, DC, and Camden Yards in Baltimore now have some gluten-free options. Kudos to Coors Field and food vendor Aramark for having an entire gluten-free concession (believed to be the first in a major league ballpark). It's located behind section 147 and sells burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, chips, cookies, brownies, and yes...gluten-free Redbridge BEER!
I also spoke with Dwayne Herndon, Founder of Noah's Pretzels, which has gluten-free pretzels and gluten-free Redbridge beer available at its stand on the main concourse (first base side) at Camden Yards in Baltimore (home of the Orioles) and in sections 106 and 318 at Nationals Park in Washington, DC (home of the Nationals). In addition, Noah's Pretzel's has a year-round presence in Washington, DC's Verizon Center, offering its gluten-free pretzels and gluten-free Redbridge beer in the home of the Washington Wizards and Washtington Captials...and the site of numerous other sporting events and concerts.
Mr. Herndon said the gluten-free pretzels, which are also casein-free, sell very well and they've largely caught on via word-of-mouth. The pretzels are individually packaged, so there's no chance of cross-contamination with the other pretzels. They are even kept in their packages to be warmed. Now that's a little slice of heaven!
