A non-homebrewer friend of mine has recently been told that he
has to go on a non-gluten diet. Alas, one of his favorite
activities is drinking a cold one while boating on the lake.
Apparently, barley, wheat, and oatmeal are no-nos, but rice is
okay. Does anyone know of a commercially available beer (if you
could call it that) that has no barley or wheat, and is made
only of rice? Yes, I suggested any American beer :^), but
*any* amount of barley is bad. Commercially available is
necessary because he's not a homebrewer.

Of course he's thought of the standard alternatives, such as
liquor, wine coolers, wine, etc., but I can understand why he
wants a nice crisp beer instead. Let me know if anyone has
any ideas.
