I keep saying, "I don't drink, much" but these days it just doesn't ring true. I don't sit home and throw back a six-pack, but I do find myself having a social drink at least once a month. Mainly when that hubby of mine is around. He's such a bad influence. lol
Some alcoholic beverages on the market today use animals byproducts in their production.
Isinglass is a pure form of gelatin extracted from fish bladder to speed up the fining process.
Some beers, including Guinness, are made with small amounts of gelatin (derived from animal bones) and isinglass. Other alcoholic beverages use filtered egg white or sea shells.
That doesn't mean you can't get your drink on!
