Company email (May 2017)
"Since 1634, the Paulaner Brewery has been brewing beer according to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Beer brewed based on that law only uses the natural ingredients hops, malt, water and yeast. No other natural or synthetic substances are added.

"We are one of the few breweries to use so-called membrane filtration for our filtered beers. No additional animal or plant products are used in that process.

"Even our Paulaner Spezi is produced completely without animal products, as you can see on the ingredients label on the back of the bottle.

"The only thing that contains casein is the glue used for the label. Vegans can also enjoy our kegs, wooden barrels, 5-liter kegs and 0.5-liter cans without any cause for concern because they don't have any label glue.

In addition, we can assure you that no animal testing is done for any of the products from the Paulaner Brewery."

Company Email (circa 2010)
"All our beers are brewed concording to the Bavarian Purity Law. This means that there are no other ingrediends than water, malt, hops and yeast in it. Malt is made from cereals, in our case of barley and wheat. Hop is also a plant and yeast is a microorganism. There are no parts of animal products in it. The only animal staff we use is in packaging. The glue for the labels is made of cow milk, there is casein in it. If you drink draught beer (keg barrels) or cans also the packaging is free of animal products."
