Gluten-free beer

We recently learned my wife is gluten intolerant, which is a shame because she loves good beer.

So far we've tried:

New Grist
Bard's
St. Peter's Sorgham Ale
Brunehaut
New Planet Tread Lightly
Redbridge
Estrella Daura
Green's Amber, Tripel, and Dubbel
Dogfish Head Tweason Ale

The ones we've liked best so far are:

New Grist - doesn't really taste like beer, but more akin to a cider without being sweet. If you don't think of it as beer it's quite good.

Brunehaut - Pretty tasty, if a little unusual tasting. This might be my favorite so far.

Green's Amber - Best of the Green's line, IMO. The other two are really sweet, but this one has some decent bitterness.

Estrella Daura - By far the most like real beer, since they use a malt that's had the gluten somehow removed.

The others in the above list ranged from mediocre to downright undrinkable.

So, are there any I missed? Any gems anyone knows of that I should seek out?
