Hey There!

Some Westons ciders have lables that say suitable for vegans. If that's any help?

Morning Jayson,

I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I have been out of the office all last week. Firstly I would like to point out that MALTHOUSE, OASTHOUSE AND COUNTRY are no longer produced. TANGLEFOOT, I can confirm does contain Isinglass.

I hope this answers your questions. If you require any further info then please contact me direct.

Many thanks
Steve White

Since I became vegan I have stopped drinking wine when out in bars/restaurants because it almost certainly isn't vegan. So I drink lagers instead that I know are vegan (e.g Budweiser). It is almost always possible to get it but does anyone know which other popular lagers are also vegan just in case? Off the top of my head....

Budvar?
Carling?
Fosters?
Stella Artois?
Indian lagers such as Cobra?
Heineken?

Thanks very much!

Hi Holly, I think there's a thread on that here somewhere. Stella is not vegan. Becks is vegan. From memory, I think Cobra and Heineken are vegan.


Edited to say...check out Isitvegan.info

Thanks for the replies. I have checked out www.isitvegan.info (http://www.isitvegan.info)

I also did some 'googling' and found this which I thought I would share...

The Budvar email sounds like it is vegan - would others agree?

Holsten Pils and Hoegaarten are vegan as well.

I'm glad to hear strongbow and most ales are vegan, I live in the hope that woodpecker cider is too ...
though I don't drink much any more, but I used to ... a lot ... too much ... :(

In moderation, alcohol is good for you. Something like one pint of beer a day does more good than harm, but any more cancels out any positive effects.

I saw some people talking about alcohol from Marks and Spencer up there ... I'd just like to add that anyone concerned about human rights (humans are animals too, remember) should probably be boycotting Marks and Spencer since they fund Israeli state terrorism against Palestine, among other things (i.e. sweatshop made clothes). And it's all overpriced. Support your local off licence instead!

Sorry to haven't read everything but this thread is interesting but quite long ;)

So actually I think that this is very important to create thread like these: there is a big lack of information about vegan drugs (in this case: vegan alcohol). The other thread about vegan cigarettes is interesting too.

For alcoholic beverages, I know that most absinthes are vegan. At least, the absinthes made in the traditional french or swiss way are vegans. And I am pretty sure all french and swiss absinthes are made in the traditional way. I have no evidence about spanish absinthes, but because it's a bit the same kind of absinthe as the french one, but of average quality, so I suppose it would be vegan, but beware of the absinthes with colors other than green, dark green, greenish, emerald, turquoise, sallow or yellowish. I have drunk red and black absinthes, but this was obviously colored by additives. About East Europe Absinthes, I have really no idea of how it's made but still, I would doubt the presence of animal byproducts.
Absinthe is great but Consume with Moderation.

Does anybody know about good vegan beers? Good new that german beers are vegan, but they're just good, or average depending of the beers. I rarely drink american, english or french beers as most of them aren't as good. Do you know about abbey beers and trappist beers? I've always been persuated that they were vegan, but if someone could confirm me that...

Does anyone know of a master list of vegan alcohol in the US? Wine is one of the few areas of my life not veganized and I'd love to rectify that. Thanks!

Cheers,

I have problems in about 40% of pubs I go in. The amount that serve only Fosters/Stella/Carling etc is amazing. I can usually have Smirnoff Ice but that's a bit sickly and a last resort really. Plus bottles are so expensive for what you get. It would solve most problems if Strongbow was vegan, but I don't suspect it is, not on draught at least, and you can't usu buy cans in pubs.

Anyone have any info on draught Strongbow, please?

I've read people on this forum talking about drinking it so I think you might be ok... Hopefully someone can confirm.

Give them a ring or write to them;

The Cider Mills
Plough Lane
Hereford

Tel: 01432 352000

Even if someone does give you confirmation it's always good to get up to date information and also the more requests for information from vegans they will get the more we will be paid attention to (I hope).

I agree, good idea, although I'd rather email. I'll do a search:)

News of a little place up near me, i'll be checking out their beers in the near future.....
