Vegan Beer List

Despite the fact that most adult beverages are made from grains and grapes, there are other ingredients that make our favorite beers and wines non-vegan.

Milk stouts and honey lagers are clearly non-vegan, but some ingredients that don’t always make the label are used during the production process. Finings, which are added at the end of the brewing process to clarify beer, are traditionally made from non-vegan sources, such as gelatin, casein, albumen or isinglass.

Some breweries have implemented updated filtration systems that allow them to brew vegan beers. To make the selection process easier for us, PETA has created this comprehensive list of beers that do not use any animal ingredients, additives, or processing agents in their beverages. Check out the list below - not all beers are listed, so visit to get the latest info on your favorites.
