Veg Delights

Bradley Janowski, brewer and lead cellarman at Live Oak Brewing Co. stopped by the Austin Vegan Facebook group to tell us about its Black is Beautiful beer, which is part of the Black is Beautiful movement. He also reminded us that Live Oak Brewing Co. uses a lenticular filter, so its beer is always 100% vegan. Thank you, Bradley for the reminder!
