VEGAN BEERS

BBC Good Food - - Instant Recipe Finder -

While lots of beers are vegan-friendly, some brew­ers add fin­ings in the fi­nal stages of pro­duc­tion. Fin­ings are used to clar­ify liq­uids, and some can in­clude an­i­mal-de­rived prod­ucts like isin­glass (made from the dried swim blad­ders of fish) and gela­tine so are un­suit­able for ve­g­ans. Here are three of our favourite ve­g­an­friendly beers:

Wild Beer Co Fresh Pale Ale

£2.59 (330ml can), avail­able at hon­est­brew. co.uk

TAST­ING NOTES

Citrusy with big hits of grape­fruit. OUR VER­DICT Very hoppy and very quaf­fa­ble. A treat with a zingy salad.

Beaver Town Brew­ery 8 Ball

£2.60 (330ml can), beaver­town brew­ery.co.uk

TAST­ING NOTES

Trop­i­cal with spicy aro­mas and a sweet malt af­ter­taste. OUR VER­DICT Spicy and earthy, 8 Ball goes per­fectly with our dirty vegan burger (left).

Brew­dog Elvis Juice

£2.50 (330ml can), brew­dog.com

TAST­ING NOTES

Vi­brant and zesty. OUR VER­DICT

This shouldn’t work, but it does. The tart­bit­ter­ness of the grape­fruit is sur­pris­ingly re­fresh­ing. A per­fect thirstquencher for a hot day.
