Well...Thank you all so very much! I literally have to run out of my hotel here to go play tonight! Thanks for the Birthday Wishes! I am in Munich, Germany....so after the show it's party time!...I guess they have "good beer" here in Germany...hehe! All beer is vegan...is it not?! :D
Happy Birthday Dave!!! ;D
Have a great show tonight!
I actually just read something in Vegetarian Times recently about beer and veganism... Here is what I found, I though VegWeb readers might want to know... (Don't read this until tomorrow, lol!)
Ales and Lagers may contain an ingredient called "Isinglass" which is a protein from fish air bladders used in stouts and cask-conditioned ales to clear away cloudy residue. Found in: Most British or Irish beers, premium white wines (particularly those from Germany) and some American chardonnays. When shopping skip: Guiness Stout, Bass Ale, Foster's Lager, Boddingtons Ale, and some Sam Adams....
This was a great article from VT and has a lot of other foods for Veg's to avoid...
Will post more of them later!
Happy Birthday Dave!!!! I hope you are having a blast in Germany!!!!
:D HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! :D
Hope you're having a wonderful trip! Sounds like an adventure. Take care and eat something especially decadent today!
Well thanks again everyone, I had a great show, a great time afterwards...and this morning saw this.....this quote freaked me out:
When shopping skip: Guiness Stout, Bass Ale, Foster's Lager, Boddingtons Ale, and some Sam Adams....
Those are some of my favorite beers :'(.
Who cares if your beer is cloudy?!
At the end of the day....I don't!
Happy Birthday Dave!
I too recently learned of Guinness' use of isinglass. I even wrote to the company, in case it wasn't true. This is what they wrote to me:
February 14, 2007
Thank you for taking time to contact Guinness. We appreciate hearing from
our consumers, whether comments are complimentary or critical, because your
feedback is important.
In regards to your email, we still use isinglass, a fish collagen, for
clarifying our beer. We hope this information is helpful to you! If you have
any other questions please do not hesitate to call us.
Once again, thank you for contacting Guinness.

Drinking Responsibly is Brilliant!!
I don't know if I'll ever be able to get Will to give up Guinness :'(
Try Yuengling beer! Black and Tan is awesome.
(Shameless plug, DH is from Pottsville, the home of Yuengling.)
That's such a coincidence that you guys are talking about beer; I just brewed my first 2 batches of beer last night. 2 types of ales. So I KNOW there isn't anything wierd in my beer. And it's really fun; I'll let y'all know how it turns out. It'll be about 5 weeks or so. BTW, happy b-day, Dave. Hope you had a good one :)
happy day after your b-day, dave! :D
Isn't it funny the twists and turns some of these threads take? Who would of thought a birthday greeting would turn into a discusion about fish gills :P
