Unfined beers suitable for vegetarians 2017


Most of the beers at the festival are fined with isinglass, a derivative from the sturgeon fish, to aid clarity. However, a growing number of brewers are making beers without isinglass finings making them suitable for vegetarians.
Below is a list of beers where the brewer has advised that they are unfined and therefore suitable for vegetarians.
