  5. Do your products contain yeast?

    Although yeast is used to ferment the sugars from the malt brew used in mike’s® products, Mike has this crazy contraption called a PMFSP, or proprietary multi-stage filtration process, where the yeast is entirely removed from the flavored malt beverage downstream. It’s one of the trade secrets that we have to help create a pure tasty malt beer.

  6. Do your products contain sulphites?

    The trace levels, if existing at all, are below the legally required declaration limit of 10 parts per million, which Mike tells me is less than what a glass of wine would contain.

  7. Are Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co. products vegan?

    No animals were harmed in the making of our product, however, several lemons got the life squeezed out of them and Mike thinks that the juice is worth the squeeze.

    There are no animal products in the ingredients or processing aids used to make mike’s® products.

  8. Are Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co. products kosher?

    Although mike’s® products do not contain any inherently non-kosher ingredients such as animal derivatives or grape juice, they are not certified as kosher.

  9. Why doesn’t Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co. list their ingredients?

    Because Mike is a rebel and he thinks that rules are meant to be broken.

    Just kidding! mike’s® products are classified as beer under Federal law which does not require ingredient or nutritional labeling on beer as regulated by the Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).

  10. How much sodium is in a bottle of mike’s hard lemonade?

    Way less than a salt lick! The mike’s hard lemonade® (all flavors) have approximately 90 mg of sodium per 11.2 oz bottle - which Mike tells me is less sodium than that of 3 Saltine crackers.

Crafted to Remove Gluten

  1. Is mike’s hard lemonade gluten free?

    Handcrafted to Remove Gluten

    mike’s® is obsessed with quality and crafting the best tasting hard lemonades. So we created a proprietary and unique filtration process to make the purest, cleanest tasting malt beverage base giving all of our products a clean, natural taste. What we learned, as a by-product of this rigorous filtration process, was that this process naturally removes gluten.

    Recently, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) - the Federal government organization that oversees labeling for alcoholic beverages - granted us permission to introduce a special seal for our product packaging to communicate that mike’s products are crafted to remove gluten. This seal is the first of its kind for fermented malt beverages having a gluten-containing grain, which in our case is barley. Since Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co.’s Chief Lemon Squeezer and his family follow a gluten-removed diet, the team at mike’s is thrilled to be able to place our Crafted to Remove Gluten seal on our packaging.

    At mike’s, we are committed to ensuring every batch meets our team’s high standards for quality and taste. Each is tested by an independent agency using the R5 Competitive ELISA test.

    So, you can continue to enjoy the great, refreshing taste of our products, including mike’s LITE hard lemonade and mike’s Hard Smashed Apple Ale, knowing they have now been crafted to remove gluten. Our proprietary process is not used by any other fermented malt beverage in the industry and helps us create that clean taste unique just to mike’s!

    This new designation, that our products are crafted to remove gluten, is not meant to encourage you to drink more. In fact, we encourage you to consult with your doctor if you have extreme sensitivities since our product may contain gluten traces. mike’s is fermented from grains that contain gluten and crafted to remove gluten. The gluten content cannot be verified and this product may contain gluten.

    Are Mike’s Hard Lemonade Products Gluten Free?

    All mike’s products in the United States, including mike’s LITE hard lemonade and mike’s Hard Smashed Apple Ale, now carry a Crafted to Remove Gluten seal on their packaging, our way to distinguish and communicate about our beverages.

    Our process removes gluten to less than 5 parts per million (ppm) as measured by the R5 Competitive ELISA test. So, while mike’s is crafted to remove gluten, we cannot say it is 100% gluten free. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), which oversees gluten labeling for alcoholic beverages in the U.S., recently ruled that fermented products made from gluten-containing grains cannot make a gluten-free claim, but are allowed to make a claim that a product is crafted to remove gluten with a disclaimer that there may be traces of gluten as the gluten content cannot be verified.

    How does Mike’s Remove Gluten from its Products?

    mike’s uses a proprietary multi-stage filtration process to develop our pure malt base that is at the heart of mike’s crisp, clean taste. This handcrafted approach, one we have had in place for many years, has always naturally removed gluten from our products through filtration. Our proprietary process is not used by any other fermented malt beverage in the industry.

    Does Mike’s Gluten Removal Process Change the Taste?

    No, mike’s approach to create a neutral and pure malt base has been the same for many years, and it also happens to naturally remove gluten from our products. Our customers are receiving the exact same great tasting and refreshing product as always as nothing has changed except we are now labeling mike’s packaging, including mike’s LITE hard lemonade and mike’s Hard Apple Ale, with a seal to indicate that mike’s is crafted to remove gluten.

    Why does Mike’s Products say Crafted to Remove Gluten instead of Gluten Free?

    At the moment, the testing methodologies available to measure gluten for non-fermented food products are accepted by the FDA, but these testing methodologies are not accepted by FDA for fermented or hydrolyzed products and have not yet been shown to be valid to quantify the gluten content in fermented and hydrolyzed products. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), which oversees gluten labeling for alcoholic beverages in the U.S., recently ruled that brewed products made from gluten-containing grains cannot make a gluten-free claim, but we are allowed to make a claim that a product is crafted to remove gluten with a disclaimer that there may be traces of gluten in mike’s beverages as the gluten content cannot be verified.

    Disclaimer: mike’s is fermented from grains that contain gluten and crafted to remove gluten. The gluten content cannot be verified and this product may contain gluten.

    Who is the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau?

    The TTB is a bureau under the U.S. Department of Treasury that is charged with protecting consumers by ensuring compliance with the Federal Alcohol Administration Act. TTB sets forth regulations regarding the labeling of ingredients and substances, including gluten content, contained in alcohol beverages in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    Other beers and malt products claim they are Gluten Free; How are Mike’s produts different?

    Some gluten free beers are made with non-wheat or ingredients, like sorghum. These beers are considered gluten free as they are made with non-gluten containing grains. Since mike’s products are made with other grains, barley to be exact, we are able to designate our gluten content with the Crafted to Remove Gluten seal.

    How does Mike’s test for gluten removal?

    mike’s products have undergone the R5 Competitive ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) test. The test revealed our beverages have just 5ppm (parts per million) of gluten.

    What Mike’s products are crafted to remove gluten?

    All of mike’s products are crafted to naturally remove gluten using our original, handcrafted process. Look for the Crafted to Remove Gluten seal on our products, including mike’s LITE hard lemonade and mike’s Hard Smashed Apple Ale to enjoy the same great and refreshing taste as always.

    Have Mike’s beverages always been crafted to remove gluten?

    For years, mike’s has used a patentable process to create a pure and neutral malt base. That handcrafted process naturally removes gluten. Due to the recent rulings by TTB with regard to labeling gluten content on our products, we are adding the new Crafted to Remove Gluten seal on all mike’s product packaging.

    Why do you have a focus now on removing gluten from your Products?

    mike’s products have been crafted to remove gluten for years. mike’s Chief Lemon Squeezer follows a gluten-removed diet with his family and is passionate about producing quality products that can be enjoyed within a healthy lifestyle.
