Vegan Boozin’?

Published on July 2, 2009 by   ·   203 Comments Pin It

Want some dried blood powder with that pitcher? How ’bout some fish bladders to go with that glass of wine? No? Then listen up because you may have to worry about more than that unfortunate one nightstand when you head out to get your buzz on…especially if you prefer seitan to cow flesh.

Fish Bladders... gag...

Many brewing companies and wineries worldwide use animal products following fermentation in a process called “fining”, which is used to enhance the appearance of the alcohol in clarity and color. We think you’d agree when we say that we’d rather get our drank on with an ugly looking beer then one that was made with ground up animal bones, just to make it look “pretty.”

Rain Vodka is organic AND vegan!  And it comes in delicious flavors like Lavender Lemonade.

Until recently, we’d just been sticking to the old standby organic booze options that we knew were vegan and sulfite free.   But we can now hit any bar in the world cuz Barnivore has arrived. AKA the guide to happy, animal-free drinking for all you lovely veg lushes who have been hiding in your casa’s afraid to go to happy hour.

Since your shot at the bar doesn’t normally come with an ingredient list, and you’d rather spend that soiree shimmying on the dance floor than reading the labels of every bottle of wine, check out Barnivore’s hella long list of brews sent in by curious consumers.

Here are a few vegan brews that struck our fancy and non-vegan bubbly to steer clear of:

  • Sippin’ a Corona and lime on the beach = vegan!
  • A Guinness on St. Patty’s Day = NOT vegan
  • A PBR with your hipsterlebrity pals = vegan!
  • Feelin’ “classy” with your box o’ Franzia wine =NOT vegan
  • The shot of Absolut vodka that might leave you hugging the toilet rather than flirting with the rockstar across the room: vegan!
  • The cheap go to Yellowtail Wine: reds are vegan! But beware whites are NOT!
  • Too many Moet Champagne mimosas with your tofu scramble: vegan!

Drink responsibly, darlings.
