Do you typically worry about buying beer and wine that is not made with any animal products? Also, aren't these products filtered out of the final product anyway?

Don't partake of alcoholic beverages, and I recommend it for everyone.

No, I don't, because I don't drink.

Yes, I do. I really need to do more research on acceptable wine because right now I'm just staying away from it.

your statement makes it sound, too me, like you are recommending alcoholic beverages for everyone, as opposed to the not partaking.



I personally am very aware, and will skip the drinking if I know the only booze are non-vegan. I've been doing it a while now though, so I've got a growing list to help me out

I voted no, because I don't buy alcoholic beverages with animal products used in their production.

I do my best not to buy the occasional beer that has been processed with isinglass. Means I usually buy from American breweries (I don't call Bud, Coors, and Miller "breweries"), and avoid Irish beers especially (even though Irish ones are usually the best, taste-wise, and would probably taste the same without the fish).

I was trying to think of that word. Isn't isinglass in some wines too?

Yes... I have no idea if it's easier to avoid in wines by going with region, which is the case for beers. (That does not mean all American beers don't use isinglass... It just means that if the beer is American, it's unlikely.)

Yuppers. I try to avoid animal products in anything I consume or wear for that matter. I'm still learning, so unintentional slip-ups happen, but I'm getting better with time.

Aahh thanks. The problem I have with wine is that it's hard to find the ingredients listed. So to be honest I have no idea what's in it. In the past I've even looked up their web-sites and had no luck.

The problem with isinglass is it's not considered an ingredient, since little to none is in the final product. The problem for vegans is that it's used in the filtration process for clarifying the final product.

I recently stopped drinking, however, when I did I wouldn't buy or consume anything that I knew used or contained animal products in their production.

There are websites devoted to labeling alcoholic drinks as being veg friendly or not, and I do use these to determine what I'll drink to an extent.



But with so many types of beer in the world, it is often hard to know without writing a company. If someone offers me a type of beer I've never heard of, I won't worry about it.



It seems like the results of this poll are skewed because there was no "I'm don't drink" option and those who don't drink wanted to answer anyway.
