Note from Kristin (March 2014):
"I was just looking into where to get some Ohara's Irish Stout and contacted the US Rep. I mentioned I was vegan and was wondering where to purchase etc. I included some of the links to the articles citing Carlow brewing as Vegan as the rep wanted to put these up on the US Facebook page.
Sadly he came back to me with sad news. He double checked with the brewmaster/founder and was notified that "They have recently begun using Isinglass to filter the beers".
The rep was very apologetic and said he was going to try and follow up with the brewmaster and founder and get back with me. At any rate, for the time being Carlow brewing company can no longer be listed as vegan."

Company email:
"Our beer is all filtered but no animal products / by products are used in the filtration process. We do not use isinglass finings to clarify our beer so I would say that it is suitable for vegans."
