Local beers fresh from the Angel’s Microbrewery
All of our beers are unfined and unfiltered, leaving them naturally hazy. Many breweries fine their beers using Isinglass, a product derived from the swim bladders of fish. While this does result in a crystal-clear pint, it can also strip some of the flavour from the beer. We prefer to avoid using Isinglass, retaining the full flavour of the beer, while also keeping them suitable for our vegan customers. It’s a win-win!
We also add an enzyme called Clarex while fermenting. This significantly reduces the gluten content of our beers, typically bringing them below the 20 ppm threshold to be considered ‘gluten-free’. While we do not have our beers analysed to confirm their gluten-free status, they should be ‘as good as’ gluten-free.
