beer emporium

The Beer Emporium features an extensive bottle shop upstairs, but it’s downstairs where things start to feel magical. A beautifully carved wooden staircase leads you to the old brick vaulted cellar. Sections of the ceiling have stained glass cut into them flooding parts of the bar with a colourful glow. Again, there’s a great range of beer on tap and will often feature Moor and Wiper & True in addition to some more unusual world beers including Rodenbach Grand Cru. Some members of staff are quite helpful and can tell you which are unfined. As you’d expect, the bottle offering is superb with lots to choose from including bottles from America and Belgian.

7 Terrace Walk, Bath BA1 1LN

We do have quite a few vegan products, I’m personally a massive fan of Artbrew who are a cracking little brewery. With the other ranges it does vary from product to product but I love kubla who do a stout, a pale ale and a saison.

Wine wise, we stock a small range due to the great wine shops already being in town, we have a few lines available that suit however they do rotate and so it would be a what ranges are in at the time of visiting. If you are looking for something in particular please do let us know. Chris Scullion, Director Independent Spirit of Bath

Spirits are usually a safe bet as unlike wine and beer they dont need fined and so they wouldnt use animal products, some liqueurs however can be a bit tricky to navigate but we have extensive knowledge of this field in particular and so can advise. Many distilleries dont see the need to place this info on their bottles which leads to consumer confusion but if you’ve not seen this resource before I’d recommend checking it out, it’s a great tool. www.barnivore.com

Is your booze vegan?

It might seem weird at first, but your favourite drink might have more than just alcohol in it.
Brewmasters, winemakers, and distillers may include animal ingredients in their products directly, or they might use them in the processing and filtration. When making the product, dairy, honey, and other things (including, in one case, a whole chicken dropped in the tank) are ingredients in the final recipe.

When filtering the drinks prior to bottling, companies can use things like isinglass (from fish bladder,) gelatin, egg whites, and sea shells, among other things. These products grab onto the impurities and make it easier to catch them in the filters, though there are many animal-free alternatives in use.

These ingredients don’t usually show up on the label, so the only way to find out is to ask.
