WhAT ABOUT the gluten?
CELIA was first brewed with a specific goal in mind
Our brewery wanted to create a beer to compliment quality food
This is why CELIA is #BREWEDFORFOOD
WHAT WE HAD
We already had the finest hops in the world - Saaz hops - whose aromatic, spicy flavour is the ideal companion to food, specifically earthy flavours.
We had the advantage of being the only Czech brewery to still traditionally batch brew meaning we open ferment our beer for 14 days giving CELIA its natural carbonation. Most breweries speed up this process to reduce costs by adding CO2 giving an uncomfortable bloating feeling when enjoying your food.
We used the finest locally sourced ingredients, from our organic barley malt to the fresh spring water from the Žatec foothills.
WHY CELIA WAS CRAFTED TO REMOVE GLUTEN
The missing piece of the puzzle was removing gluten so we could create a truly light lager.
After years of research the CELIA team identified an enzyme to bond with the gluten which works it's magic during the lagering process in the castle cellars.
When run through our innovative silicone filtration system this left CELIA with <0.5 ppm of gluten; crafted to remove gluten and vegan friendly.
Because CELIA is deglutenised it allows us to use quality ingredients, not substituting anything to make CELIA gluten removed. This ensures a greate tasting pilsner that doesn't compromise on flavour.
We won't accept anything less then perfection, why should you?
