Green Light goes vegan! All Powderkeg Brewery cans now 100% vegan and gluten-free.

In the spirit of perfectionism that defines Powderkeg Brewery,  they’ve just announced an update to one of their flagship beers… introducing the refreshed Green Light, now proudly vegan. Green Light is a low alcohol beer that delivers big on flavour at just 1.0% ABV. Until now the beer was vegetarian rather than vegan, due to the addition of lactose to the recipe. Lactose is often used to add mouthfeel to beers in lieu of the body that full-alcohol brewing normally provides. However, the rest of the core range is vegan, as well as gluten-free, and they wanted to bring Green Light in line.

About Green Light Beer

Brewed using a full mash of seven different malts, late kettle-hopped and then dry-hopped for a stunning tropical and citrus fruit finish, everything about the brewing process is designed with the mantra that only more good ingredients go in, rather than the big-industry practice of brewing a weak beer and then stripping the alcohol out, along with most of the flavour.

The result is a premium, refreshing, modern craft beer with all the hallmarks of quality you expect from PK. The fact that it is low alcohol, low in calories, gluten-free and vegan is just an added bonus, but one that makes this truly an ‘anytime for anyone’ beer – a pint of freedom with all the flavour and no repercussions.

Head brewer John Magill said:

“We’ve been wanting to make Green Light vegan for a while, to align it with the rest of our core range, but we had to ensure we could do it without straying too far from the alchemy of the recipe. Green Light has won lots of awards and has legions of devoted fans and we have to keep them happy. Thankfully, we think we’ve cracked it, and in fact it’s tasting better than ever.”

Green Light’s awards success so far…
