According to new market research, millennials are more likely to drink beers that are lighter, vegan, or gluten-free. GlobalData has reported that beer brands are experimenting more with gluten-free, lower calorie beers that are free of animal products in order to counter beer’s traditionally unhealthy image, according to BeverageDaily. Millennials are reported to be more likely to seek out beer brands that have healthier options.

While beer isn’t something many people associate with animal products, beer has traditionally used fish-derived isinglass for finings used to clarify beer. Many companies have moved away from isinglass finings in recent years, however. Here’s a list of vegan beers you can buy online.


“While it sounds odd to link beer with fitness, brewers with a sense of self-preservation are keen to establish the link,” said GlobalData’s innovation insights director Tom Vierhile, according to Craft Brewing Business. “Data suggests that younger consumers see alcohol in a more negative light than older consumers and beer that is perceived to be more healthful could thrive in the United States and elsewhere.”
