•Salt Lake City, Utah’s Uinta Brewing Co. has launched two new gluten-free beers. Brewed with millet and buckwheat, Uinta’s “Free Form” gluten-free range includes a Belgian-Style Blonde Ale and IPA (both 4% abv). The Belgian-Style Blonde includes coriander and is brewed with Sterling and Opal hops, while the IPA’s hop profile features Citra, Ella and Cascade varieties. Uinta’s new gluten-free Free Form brews will be available in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles across the company’s distribution territory by the end of this spring.

•Comstock, Michigan-based Bell’s Brewery is moving its Oatsmobile American pale ale to canned format (and discontinuing bottles). Made with malted oats, the session brew includes a blend of classic and modern Pacific Northwest hops and is dry-hopped. Bell’s Oatsmobile will roll out in six-packs of 12-ounce cans throughout the brewer’s distribution footprint. Oatsmobile is Bell’s sixth beer to transition fully to canned and draft formats. Bell’s is the seventh-largest craft brewer nationwide, according to the Brewers Association.
