Company email (February 2018)
"At the moment, the only keg beer we don’t use isinglass as a process aid is Versa, the Weissbier. We recently did a couple of specials, Mimosa and Green Mountain which we also didn’t use isinglass in the production process. Everything else is fined with isinglass – Lukas included."

Via Twitter ( and thread, July 2017)

"Lukas and Tzara are both unfined beers [in addition to Jaipur X] so vegan friendly"

Via Twitter (, Aug 2016):

"We use isinglass as a process aid to reduce loading on the centrifuge."

Company email (August 2015):
"I’m afraid we do use isinglass in the production of our beers so they wouldn’t be classed as vegan."

Company email (May 2012):
"I am afraid non of the beers are suitable"

Company email (market that sells the beer:
"I can confirm that these bottled ales are suitable for vegans."
Note from Bones:
"So the bottled beers suitable are:
Wild Swan"
