An award-winning gluten-free beer is now vegan – in a bid to meet growing customer demand.

Wadworth’s 6X Gold beer recently reached the finals of the Free From Pub and Bar awards and received a bronze at the International Beer Challenge 2017.

To make the beer vegan, the isinglass finings were replaced by a silicate and polysaccharide finings agent in the brewing process.

‘Real demand’

Chris Welham, CEO for Wadworth, said: “6X Gold is extremely popular with drinkers who like beer and also those that need to choose a gluten-free diet.

“What became very apparent in our discussions with customers is that there is a real demand for vegan products too. We set about changing the brewing process so that this award-winning beer is vegan also”.

6X Gold is available in some Tesco stores in the South West of England as well as online.
