Does anyone know if the beer " Carona " is vegan. We have a recipe that calls for beer, but we don't want ot make a mistake here! Anyone know about Carona? I think we may have some Miller, but I doubt it.
Not sure. I've toured the Budwiser Brewery here, and I know that all that goes into that kind of bear is grain and hopps (both plants). I'd look up the company's website and find info about thier brewing process (most beer companies are more than happy to tell you about that...it's one of the things they work the hardest to get right and they want you to know why they think they're the best).
As far as I know, the only thing that might cause a beer to lose vegan certification would be if their water is filtered with bone-char... But I'm not an expert on the subject by any means, as I don't drink. I imagine that you'd be safe.
I've half-joked about this with friends and family, that if beer (specifically, Labast, Molson, Killians, Warsteiner, Heinekin, and Guiness, none light), wasn't vegetarian, I'd be in trouble. Okay. We're not alcoholics, we just like to crack open the occasional six pack.
Some beers cannot be classed as veg*n, because of the animal-derived filters used in their production to clarify them. In the UK, common filters for beers include gelatin, isinglass (fish bladder), casein, egg albumin, and even blood powder! (why???)
I know that Guinness uses isinglass, so that's out of the question for me, unfortunately
I don't know about Corona, it doesn't seem to be listed anywhere, which could mean anything. There is another thread on VB about vegan beers (I cannot post the URL, sorry!), if you search for 'vegan beers', you'll find it - I think it has a few links to lists from the vegan society.
