Gout diet advice

I just had my first attack of gout, and I'm looking for trustworthy sources of information on the purine levels of different foods.

I intend to generally cut back on meat and beer, but I've read conflicting information on things like mushrooms, broccoli, whole grains, etc. I don't want to over-react and cut out too many things (as I won't be able to stick to it), but I'd like to get a consistent picture of what to avoid and what's okay. I'm interested in online or printed sources with decent references.
If I can add a rider: does anyone have any specific information on purine levels of no-alcohol beer or is it pretty much the same as ordinary lager?
