  Saxon is a premium lager beer produced with the highest quality barley malt and hops. Unlike regular lager beers Saxon is brewed with a process which removes the gluten normally present in beers. The end result is the world’s first fresh gluten free beer with the authentic taste of a premium lager.

The Unique Process

Barley malt is the natural raw material for beer production. Barley contains proteins that can be detrimental to coeliac disease sufferers. The malting and brewing processes diminish the amount of harmful proteins in beer, but regular lager beers still contain some gluten. Oy Sinebrychoff Ab and Carlsberg Breweries has modified the traditional brewing process to minimize the gluten content of barley malt beer.

The Gluten Free Logo
The brewing process gives a result that means that Saxon lager beer comes out with less than 20 ppm gluten in various measuring methods and thus Sinebrychoff and Carlsberg has been given permission to use the Gluten Free Logo by The Finnish Coeliac Society.
