I would like to say that I find it safe to assume when I have a beer, or even a glass of wine or some liquor that I'm not eating any animal products, but when you assume, you make an ass out of u and me
I don't really know how alcohol is made, aside from the fact that wine comes from grapes, and liquor from grains (I believe), so I don't know what companies, especially beer manufacturers, put in their drinks. Part one of my question is are alcoholic drinks vegan? Part two is do you drink alcohol?
I personally drink, but not very often (2-3 times a month, and I only started recently). I did say that my purpose for becomming vegan was for my health, so I do see the hypocrisy in it. However, I'm young (just turned 18) and when I go out with friends I like to drink. I'm going to try and drink less when I start university (but from what I hear it goes the other way around) and we'll see what happens.
For info, since this thread was getting quite long, what with beer, cider, wine, spirit, pimms, and sangria posts etc, a number of posts have now been moved (where possible) to make seperate threads, all in the 'drink' forum. Hopefully making it easier for all to find info. Any queries, please pm me.
