Zealous – Pilsner Lager
London Porter"

Company email (October 2017)

"We do indeed have some vegan beers. The thing that stops beer being vegan friendly is the addition of isinglass finings, which makes a beer clear. We do not use isinglass finings in the keg versions of $UMO, Hopfest, Roadkill, or Flying Squirrel. Roadkill is also vegan friendly on cask, as is our current cask seasonal release Berkhopsted, which is also unfined.

"Mister Squirrel, Hopfest cask, $UMO cask and London Porter are not vegan friendly due to isinglass finings use. De La Crème is not vegan friendly due to the addition of lactose sugar."
