When we learned that Guinness removed isinglass (obtained from fish bladders) from its filtration method, some of us might have shed tears of joy.

The company that manufactures the famous stout, Diageo, confirmed that the beer is now officially made using a filtration process that no longer includes isinglass.

Guinness recently released the following statement:

The first stage of the roll out of the new filtration system concentrated on Guinness Draught in kegs. The brewery is delighted to confirm that this phase of the project is complete and all Guinness Draught produced in keg format at St. James’s Gate Brewery and served in pubs, bars and restaurants around the world, is brewed without using isinglass to filter the beer.

Shocking as it may be, some wine and beer—although made from grapes and grains—may have been processed using ingredients that cost animals their lives.

To avoid nonvegan alcohol, websites such as Barnivore and apps like Vegaholic can tell you which drinks are animal-friendly with a simple click of a button.

Don’t forget to order yourself a set of PETA mason jars to go with your keg of vegan Guinness. Cheers!
