Fit Fix: Guinness Is Going Vegan

The famous Irish stout will be vegan-friendly by 2016—but until then, it's made with a surprising ingredient.

Morning, dudes. Here's some cool stuff from our daily lap around the Internet on Tuesday, November 3, 2015:

Guinness Is Made With What?: After 256 years of brewing the world-famous "black stuff," Guinness is switching up its filtration process—and the new edition will be vegan-friendly, The Times reported. "Wait," you're thinking, "what's non-vegan about Guinness?" It turns out the iconic Irish stout is filtered with isinglass, a gelatin made from fish bladders. "Isinglass has been used widely within the brewing industry as a means of filtration for decades," Guinness said in a statement. But no more, the company says—the filtration process will be fish-bladder-derivative-free by late 2016!  [CNBC]
