Vegan beer drinker? Try Firebrand bottles

Alcoholic drinks are a minefield for vegans. Many contain animal products, and beer and wine are known for their use of finings. Our casks and kegs are fined, but our bottled beers aren’t, meaning they’re suitable for vegetarians and vegans to enjoy.

Most of our bottles are available to purchase online here but if you’d like your local bottle shop to get some in then ask them to email us at

Our core bottled beers are:

Graffiti IPA – ABV: 5.5%
Our flagship beer has been doused in praise by everyone from FHM and ShortList Magazine to SIBA, which named Graffiti IPA its 2014 Strong Bitters Regional Gold Award winner. Taking its smooth, malty body from the finest English malt, Graffiti is hopped profusely with Cascade and Centennial hops. It’s then dry hopped with bags of Centennial and Motueka to give it a fruity flavour with an instant quaffability. BeerBods subscribers loved it.

Cross Pacific Pale Ale – ABV: 4.0%
Cross Pacific Pale Ale took the ‘Gold Bitters, Pale & Golden Ales’ and ‘Supreme Champion Silver’ titles in the coveted SIBA craft beer in keg competition 2014. Brewed with a great Maris Otter malt backbone, this pale ale delivers a hop-forward burst of flavour thanks to bags of Centennial, Cascade and Motueka.

Rye PA – ABV: 5.5%
Brewed with Crystal rye and Maris Otter malt. The spiciness combines with bold US Columbus hops, used with Centennial in the boil and dry hopped for three days. A favourite with bottle shops and bar-goers looking for a different taste.

Black Saison – ABV: 5.0%
Great British and Belgian heritages combine to make a beer which takes the best elements from stouts and farmhouse saisons. Black Saison is dark and full of roasted malt flavours, balanced with a smoothness from its high wheat content. Delicate European hops add a light floral hint before the saison yeast imparts its complex, funky fruit flavours.
