Now when you think of a delicious craft ale, you’d never think that animal products were involved in the ingredients or brewing process of the golden drink in the pint glass in front of you.

In Birmingham City Centre and particularly in the Jewellery Quarter, there are a few vegan breweries. Their brews suit the dietary requirements of those who choose to not consume animal products, but their brilliant brews are enough to suit any ale enthusiast!
