Dogfish's gluten-free beer hitting the market

A new gluten-free beer should be appearing on Jacksonville area store shelves in the coming days.
Dogfish Head is introducing a bear called Tweason'ale that will be shipped to Florida distributors next week, the company told me.
Tweason'ale is a bit different than other beers, brewed with strawberries and honey. But it's always nice to find more choices.
“It seems as if lots of folks who have gluten- tolerance issues are pining for an interesting beer,” Dogfish founder and president Sam Calagione said in a pitch for Tweason'ale. “While there are a few well-made examples that mirror traditional beer styles, there aren’t any off-centered offerings.”
Here's Dogfish's description of Tweason'ale:
"We replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey."
Tweason'ale will be sold in 12-ounce four-packs.
