Company email (May 2016):
"All of our beers are brewed using brewer's yeast, so I'm not sure if our beers qualify as vegan. If yeast is ok to consume, please see below for a list of our beers that are ok for consumption:

Solid Sender Ale
HopBack Amber Ale
Perpetual IPA
DreamWeaver Wheat
JavaHead Stout
Troegenator Double Bock
Cultivator Helles Bock
Sunshine Pils
Hop Knife Harvest Ale
Blizzard of Hops Winter IPA
Nugget Nectar
Nimble Giant

The only beers we produce that would NOT qualify for a vegan listing are:

Mad Elf
Wild Elf

Both of these beers are brewed with honey.

Below is some additional information, which may be helpful:

We add calcium chloride and calcium sulfate at the beginning of the brewing process to adjust mash pH. We use whirlfloc (a fining agent derived from euchema cottonii) in our boil kettle to help with wort clarity. Our beer is filtered through a bed of food grade perlite and cellulose. We add a small amount of sodium erythrobate as an antioxidant just before filtration. The beer is then force carbonated using a food grade CO2."

Company email (circa 2008):
"the mad elf has honey in it."

"...we do not use any isinglass or gelatin in our filtering. all filtering is with diamataceous earth."
