In recent years, there has been a growing recognition that many vegans are fans of real ale and not everyone wants bits of fish or egg added to their pint. Although there have always been alternative ways to clear and filter beer, pubs and breweries have started to label their vegan ales, making the world a much richer (and blurrier) place for vegans.
