As Brakspear Oxford Gold and Scarecrow are only Organic to export that realistically leaves us with the Duchy range of Duchy Old Ruby, Duchy Jubilee IPA and Duchy Golden Ale only available in Waitrose."

Currently the only vegetarian/vegan beer that the Wychwood Brewery produces, are those brewed for the Duchy Originals range. All other beers both cask and bottle contain isinglass finings or have isinglass used in the their production.

Email 2:
Yes, I can confirm that Scarecrow is vegan. In order to fine/ clear it we leave it a long time in cold store which helps the proteins to sink. It is then filtered and flash pasteurized which takes the sediment out.
