BrewDog beers earn vegan certification

15 February 2016

BrewDog has certified 23 of its beers, including flagship brews Punk IPA and Five AM Red, as officially vegan.

The brewery earned The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark after rejecting the use of isinglass, a product traditionally used in brewing that comes from dried fish bladders. 

The company also makes gluten-free and alcohol beers. “Everyone should be able to drink great beer, and we’re proud that particular dietary choices won’t keep you out of a BrewDog bar or BottleDog,” said Sarah Warman, Master Gunner and Head of Marketing at BrewDog.

Jasmijn de Boo, CEO of The Vegan Society, said: “There’s absolutely no need to use isinglass in beer production. It’s an archaic, outdated practice that is being phased out of this industry thanks in part to breweries like BrewDog, who recognise the size of the vegan market.

“The world is getting ever-thirstier for vegan beer. As awareness of isinglass grows with more people realising what it is – fish guts – more people are seeking to avoid it, opting for something vegan-friendly instead.”
