Ten vegan beers you can find (basically) anywhere
It can be a bit overwhelming when you first realize that a lot of beer isn’t vegan. But before you freak out, don’t worry, it’s not as rough as it sounds. While most craft breweries offer some, or many, vegan options, you don’tbuy thick-rimmed glasses and start hanging out with hipsters to grab a vegan pint.
A number of the world’s best-known beer brands also happen to be vegan. Keeping these brands in mind could be massively helpful at your next family barbecue or work event.
