I usually leave a 6-pack of local beer in the fridge for guests. Someone complained that I I didn’t have any options for gluten free guests. sigh
Don’t forget the non-drinkers like me and the recovering alcoholics! We’re people, too!
Ha. Ungrateful bastards!
Wow that’s so generous of you! Can I stay with you?
I believe you still offered a premium, quality, gluten-free drink: tap water.
This should be enough to protect you from the upcoming discrimination lawsuit.
Can beer be gluten free? Do hops have gluten?
I used to offer Kona coffee… The most expensive and sought after coffee in the world with the possible exception of Jamaica blue mountain. Well a guest complained because it wasn’t ORGANIC KONA COFFEE.
So now all guests get Folgers in a glass jar labeled coffee.
I’d have gone over and taken the damn six pack back.
Gluten ONLY OCCURS IN WHEAT. Now if your oats were processed in a plant that processes wheat – without hosing everything down first – it’s conceivable you may get an infinitesimal amount of gluten in your oats or whatever. “Gluten Free” as an advertising ploy has become worthless – like “Gluten Free Water”
So Ken… That would mean ALL beer is gluten free?
Well except for Kona Brewing Co. flavor Wheatgrass Ale.
You know how we are always saying you shouldn’t take legal advice from people who aren’t lawyers? Gluten occurs in grains besides wheat…I just don’t remember which ones and I’m not going to look it up.
Sorry @KenH but wheat isn’t the only grain that contains gluten…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gluten
Beers are made from malted barley or wheat so all have gluten (unless they are a gluten free brand
I don’t like beer at all, so I would expect you to leave me six bottles of wine as a substitute. And none of that cheap stuff in cartons, please …
There are heaps of wheat beers.
Welcome in the world of hosting.
The more you give them, the more things they find to complain about.
Yup… Even Kona Brew has one. It might be my last choice though. I like the darker ones.
This really strikes a chord. I’ve never forgotten my German guests who gave me 4 stars overall despite getting up every morning to buy them fresh organic bread (a 20 minute car journey)
Last guest has stayed with us several times before–comes into town to visit his kids (divorce). This time he asked me to please let him stay for one day instead of our two night minimum, and then offered to pay double our cleaning fee once I told him that the cleaning cost was behind my reasoning for the two-night minimum. I relented and even said don’t worry about it–we’ll just do the one day and the normal cleaning cost. Then I allowed him a late check-out as his flight was in the evening…and he didn’t leave until 7pm. Whatever, I thought–at least this is a guaranteed 5-star review.
FOUR. HE GAVE ME FOUR.
I kind of want to message him though and say something…but what? How?
Oh, and that review? Will be the one that knocks us out of superhost.
Ken is incorrect. Gluten does not only occur in wheat. Gluten also occurs in barley which is an ingredient in many beers.
I would never complain if someone gave me Kona coffee. It’s delicious. The most expensive coffee in the world is the civet poop coffee. I know it sounds like a joke a four year old would find hysterical, but it’s real.
