Company email (June 2015):
"With the move to our new facility on 1st avenue, one big change is the decision to use a filter in our brewing process. This filter powder is mineral based. We no longer use cryofine or any other animal based products (such as isinglass) as a clarifying agent; the filter removes the need to use them.

In regards to our processes and recipes:
We have 3 core brand beers available in a combination of draught, can and bottle: Red Truck Lager, Red Truck Ale, Red Truck IPA.
We currently have 3 more seasonal brands: Red Truck ISA, Ridin Shotgun Belgian Blonde and Three in the Tree Belgian Tripel. Other seasonal beers will come out in the future.
We only use malt, hops, yeast and water
The raw materials in all of our current line up are vegan friendly: no honey or dairy products
We do not use any animal based adhesives in our labelling and packaging processes. Casein-based adhesives are usually used for specific wet applications - everything we do on site is dry application.

We do everything on site here at 295 east 1st avenue, so no-third party processes are involved."

Company email (April 2013):
"The answer is no. We use cryofine as a fining agent, which is a collagen derived from fish bladders. The reason we use this as we do not filter our beer and this is the most effective method for our situation.
However, we are changing facilities and production methods with in a year and we will be filtering at that time. Whether or not we will continue to use animal based products I can't answer that now. But I
would encourage you to contact us again in the future and check. As a brewer my aim is have as many people enjoy our beer as possible,though I do need to balance that with the quality of the beer. If I do find a suitable alternative that works with our production methods I will make the switch. If you have any questions about beer and it's Vegan-ness, I
would get a hold of Tariq Kahn the brewer for Big Ridge Brewing in Surrey. He is Vegan and I believe produces a Vegan-friendly beer."
