Recently I heard some exciting rumours that Cascade Brewery had finally ditched its old processes and refinements and was now vegan… I didn’t want to get ahead of myself so I did a bit of digging and checked with the company and Vegan Tasmania is proud to confirm that Cascade is now vegan!!! Woohoo!
Here’s what the representative I spoke to had to say:
“Carlton United Brewers (including Matilda Bay Brewing Company and Cascade Brewing Company) does not use any animal based processing aids in the production of its beer products.
In the past collagen fining agents have been used to clarify our beers, however we have now developed a process that eliminates this requirement.”
“We do not use animal products in the production of our beer. As the definition of vegan and vegetarian can differ for the individual, we prefer to provide this information for consumers to decide for themselves as to whether this qualifies as vegan or vegetarian friendly.”
