Vegan Beer Guide

Pining for a cruelty-free pint? Check out these vegan-friendly brews.

Holidays, sporting events, an afternoon in the park, happy hour—there is always an occasion for a frosty glass of cold beer. However, some beers contain additives such as gelatin, casein, and albumen, while isinglass is frequently used in the filtering, making it necessary for vegans to be aware of which ales are cruelty-free. All of the following breweries make fully vegan beers. The only non-vegan beers produced by the listed companies specifically mention honey in the variety’s name. That means as long as it doesn’t say “honey,” it’s yours to crack open. Cheers!
