I'm going to have to print out the list and carry it with me at all times, like an emergency ID bracelet.  I knew about the egg white to clarify some wines, but life without Campari is going to be rough.  Thanks though.

Vala - I'm pretty sad about the guinness thing myself. I've always preferred drinking it in bars as it's heaviness naturally stops me from over-imbibing. On the plus side, I am now experiencing a world of new stouts and porters..... have you tried Pimms? It's not campari I know but they do have it at the Whip inn.

If you have an ipod or PDA you could put the info on there and take it with you shopping. I have recipes for food and drink on my ipod and it is quite handy in the ol' kitchen....

Ha!  Y'all are both funny.  I seem to require that tonight.  Anyway, I have none of those gadgets, still dealing with my answering machine.  And I love Whip Inn, though I call it the Whip it In.  Too many years traveling with a Blues band.

Do you know if Rolling Rock is vegan? I didn't see their name up there -- but I wasn't sure if the name of the brewery was something else....

Trying emailing them at rollingrock@beerdesk.com - I'd recommend listing the potential non vegan ingredients and how they can be used from this post so that there is no confusion.

The rock is brewed by Latrobe Brewing, who are owned by Labatts in canada, who in turn are owned by Interbrew of beligium, the largest alcohol conglomerate in the world.

Second in size is Diageo, who own Jonnie walker, Smirnoff, Jose Cuervo, Baileys, Capt. Morgan, J&B, Guiness, Tanquerey and some lower end beers and liquors. They also own Burger King and Fado (yes, it's a chain)

Both the beers I drink regularly are not on that list. Ugh.

What about SAKE!??!?? That is my drink of choice these days.

don't worry, this list isn't comprehensive. If you email the companies and find out their beers are vegan, add them to the list.

>What about SAKE!??!?? That is my drink of choice these days.

I've made basic sake and I'm pretty certain all sake requires some form of clarification to separate the protein suspension from the liquid. As with wine, this can take a vegan or non vegan form...

Actually from what I read it appears that Sake would be vegan.  I was going to write one of the sake experts to find out for certain, but I haven't done so yet.  In the meantime, there is always unfiltered sake.  awesome

I emailed the Real Ale Brewing Company about their beer, and they responded very quickly with:

Erick,
thanks for writing. our beers are unfiltered and unpastuerized and we don't
use any clarifiers or honey in our beers.  so, the firemans' #4, full moon
pale rye, rio blanco pale ale, and brewhouse brown are all animal product
free.

cheers, and hope you enjoy our ales.

Add beers produced by the New Belgium Brewing company to the list:

Hello Erick

I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that every single one of our beers is a vegan product. We've never used any of the animal product-based processing aids, and I don't believe we ever will, as we'd be alienating a good chunk of our consumers and even some of our own employees.

Thanks for your support

Have Fun

New Belgium beers are pretty good.  We've tried a bunch of their stuff and liked most of it.  I think the favorite around my house is Sunshine Wheat.

Didn't see any Samuel Smith's on that list and it's one of our favorite beers.  This little shop in San Francisco sold the organic ones and they are sooo tasty.  I've yet to look for them here but the night's still young awesome

Samuel Smith's Organic Lager  
Samuel Smith's Organic Ale
Samuel Smith's India Ale
Samuel Smith's Pale Ale
Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale
Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter
Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout
Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout
Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale

Here's an email response from Merchant du Vin!
"Thank you for visiting our website. All Samuel Smith beers are free from animal products and have been certified by the Vegan Society in East Sussex, England."

Woohoo!  Whole Foods carries almost all the Samuel Smith's beerz.  I haven't looked elsewhere but I'm sure other natural food stores do too!
