Company email (July 2016):
"As from 1 January 2003 all Lion products are brewed and packaged without the use of any animal products.

"Isinglass was used until December 2002 and now no longer used. I can confirm that the apple juice in all of Lion’s ciders brewed in Australia do not use caseinates in their production and are free from milk products."

Company email (May 2016) re: Kosciuszko Pale Ale

"Kosciuszko Pale Ale is a product we brew in Australia.

"All Lion Products are Brewed in Australia and Packaged without the use of any Animal Products.

"The only Ingredients we use in our beers are water (potable water), hops (bittering agent, can be in the form of pellets or liquid), malted Barley (Types used: pale malt, roasted malt, crystal malt), sugar (liquid in some brews), yeast (the fermenting agent) - not strictly a raw material-but we refer to it as the fermenting agent"

Company email (January 2016) re: 5 Seeds:
"The apple juice has been in contact with Caseinate, a milk derived product used for fining (clarifying) the juice early in the process before we receive it. So this may rule it out of being suitable for Vegans."

Company email (February 2013):
"No lion beer brand contains any animal or dairy products. XXXX Summer is only manufactured and sold in Australia."

Company email (2009) re: James Squire
"Essentially our beers are vegan in that we utilise, barley & wheat malts, water, yeast & hops, none of which are of animal origin. Most commercial beers are in fact essentially vegan, however the most common break down point is the use of Isinglass Finings to clarify the beer (fish origin), or in some cases the use of albumin (egg). Certain Stouts do also utilise lactose (from milk). We do not use these in any of our beers.

"Neither do we use any other ingredients or additives of known animal origin. Therefore I consider our beers are vegan, however we are not certified by any external authority as vegan."

Bruce notes re: James Squire

"I spoke to the brewer at length, PVPP fining used."
