Company email (August 2016):
"All of our beer is made with isinglass."

Company email (circa 2011):
"Our cask ales are not filtered and unfortunately we use isinglass as a fining agent to ensure the beer is clear. This is the only animal(fish) derived product used in the production of our ales. Unfortunately this may make the cask ale unsuitable for vegans, even though the finning should not come through on serving as it will settle to the bottom of the cask.

However our bottled ales are not fined with isinglass but instead we use a synthetic PVPP(Polyvinylpyrrolidone) which is an animal free product and filtered to 0.2um so should be suitable for vegans to drink. Currently we have Wandle Ale, Junction Ale, Powerhouse Porter and soon Celebration Ale.

Currently all of our ale production is done on site. Bottling is finished at Thames Distillers using the fining regime described above."
