The Texas Craft Brewers Festival is this weekend in Austin. I was looking up which beers at the festival are vegan (pretty much all of them!), and thought I’d share the info with everyone. I filled in a few breweries that won’t be there so the information is all in one place. Much of this is compiled from Barnivore, and the rest is from emails sent directly to the brewers.
In a few cases, I’ve left the place holder (email sent) because I wanted to be able to publish this in time for people going to the Craft Brewer festival on Saturday. It hasn’t been long since I sent emails, so don’t think that any brewer was unresponsive or unhelpful. I’ll update this as I get more responses.
- 512 Brewing — All current beers are vegan
- Alamo — Tentatively vegan. Brewer is double checking for me.
- Austin Beerworks — Vegan
- Blackstar Coop — Not vegan. All beers are currently filtered with isinglass.
- Circle Brewing — Tentatively vegan. Waiting to hear back about filtration.
- Draught House Pub & Brewery — Mostly vegan. Milk stout contains milk.
- Jester King — Vegan
- Independence Brewing — Vegan
- Franconia Brewing — No response
- Live Oak — Vegan
- Lone Star — Vegan
- New Republic Brewing — Vegan
- No Label Brewing — Mostly vegan. Seasonal winter ale (Panamanian Coffee Milk Stout) will contain milk.
- Rahr and Sons — Vegan
- Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling — Mostly vegan. La Bestia Aimable contains honey
- Real Ale — Vegan
- Saint Arnold Brewing — Vegan
- Southern Star Brewing — Vegan
- Spoetzl Brewery (Shiner) — Mostly vegan. The Hefeweizen contains honey
- Thirsty Planet Brewing — Vegan
- Twisted X Brewing — No response

It’s probably a good idea to ask about special edition beers as they may contain honey or, apparently, milk.
