Guinness are changing their original recipe for the first time in 200 years

Joe Harrington

A good pint of Guinness is hard to beat because that creamy, rich and cool mixture is impossible to recreate.

The drink is perfection but the brewers of the famous Irish stout are changing the original recipe after 200 years.


The reason; the number of petitions they’ve received from vegans who love a pint of the black stuff.

Wait a second though, this is the definition of ‘vegan.’


You’re probably wondering what animal products are used in the making of Guinness?

It turns out animal bladders are currently used in the brewing process and that system will be stopped from 2016 onward.

Here’s hoping it tastes exactly the same.
