This here is an obligatory St. Patrick's Day post. Instead of writing about the best green cocktails or the newest Irish Soda Bread recipe (probably still tastes like cardboard) we decided to post about the brand new vegan facet of Guinness beer. After 256 years, Guinness is changing their traditional filtration process. According to FoodandWine.com, "Since the 19th century, Guinness has filtered out yeast from its signature stout with isinglass, a byproduct of fish bladders. Though most of the isinglass is removed before the beer hits the market, Guinness has admitted in the past they can't guarantee that no trace of the substance remains in the final product. Therefore, strict vegans have said Guinness is off-limits". The new filtration process is set to start sometime this year. It will be very interesting to see the feedback the company receives from long time Guinness drinkers.
