We feel there’s something of a misunderstanding about unfined beer.

We’re often asked whether a beer is hazy. Usually because someone prefers or avoids hazy beer.

We do understand why some people associate cloudy beer with bad beer. A long, long time ago, that might have been the case. But beer has evolved, with so many great breweries producing ridiculously good beer.

We really don’t think that fish in any form belongs in beer, so we only buy unfined beer, or beer fined with vegan finings (we do prefer unfined, though).

Now that doesn’t mean that we’ll only buy soupy beer. We’ll buy what we think will be good beer. So our beer might be cloudy, a little hazy, or clear.

To confuse the issue, here’s a picture of an unfined beer that’s on cask right now.
