Well now I want some beer battered fish! That looks fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing your talents!

It looks like you have attained perfection here! Yum. The markets near me don't have a good selection of GF beer, but I will have to keep looking. Thanks for posting another great recipe.

this was delicious! We made this with friends and actually just used seltzer water (since none of us drink and gf beer is hard to find here) it was great!!! Definitely a once-a-year awesome treat!!

This recipe is DELICIOUS!! I will never make it a different way. We used club soda instead of buying GF beer, and it works just fine 🙂 THANK YOU!

Made this for dinner tonight and it was wonderful. GF beer is still unheard of here and I didn’t have club soda or 7-up both of which I’m sure would work. I just substituted plain old water and it was great…..just a nice thin crispy coating which was especially delicious with the garlic powder and paprika….Going to be a regular her! Thanks Janine!

Perfect! Thanks for sharing that, Lorna, I’m sure others have a hard time finding gluten-free beer as well. 🙂

We made this last night and it was delicious. Our 8 and 10 year old gobbled it up. We used 7-up instead of gf beer and it turned out great. Thank you for sharing. We are so glad we found your website.

Yeah!! I’m so glad that you found it too! 🙂 I haven’t made this in a while, may need to change that. 🙂 Thanks for popping in, MK!

Though I haven’t tried it in our own kitchen yet, we dined in a GF restaurant in Colorado Springs called Coquette’s and they made fabulous GF fish and chips. Instead of beer, they used Strong Bow Cider which is easier to find in a liquor store than GF beer. If that brand is unavailable, try one of the European tasting ciders which are more tart than many of the New England brands.

Made this last night with fish and shrimp, it was the BEST! My husband who only eats GF for me (celiac), could not get enough! I’ve tried other beer batter before, this is #1, thanks a bunch for sharing.

Oh forgot, Redbridge is easy to find in grocery strores here in Florida and it works great for the beer part of this.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE!!! Just recently diagnosed with Celiac and I was worried I would never be able to have another beer battered fish, especially during LENT. This recipe was wonderful. I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 for 1 Gluten free flour mix and Redbridge Gluten free beer. AMAZING flavor.
Definitely will be stashed in my “favorite recipe pile” 🙂

Isn’t it great to be able to re-create your favorites? No need to panic, you’ll be able to recreate nearly everything with time. 🙂

I’ve made this about 4 times, with halibut I have in the freezer. It turns out perfect every time. A good gluten free beer I have recently found is called “ground breaker”, with a tractor on the label.

Made it today. What a treat for my wife, who has had to be gf for 10 years now. Hard cider worked nicely.

Can Bobs Red Mill GF 1 to 1 flour be used is place of the other flours? And I am having trouble finding GF beer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The recipe now suggests club soda as an alternative to beer, and others have used 7-Up successfully. If you’re really trying to get some of the hop flavor from beer, you might want to try an internet search for things like “beer without hops” or “hop substitutes”. An Earl Grey tea bag in some club soda might do the trick. You may have to experiment a bit.
