The LA Vegan Beer & Food Fest Returns For 4th Year!
It's back! Once again, vegan food and beer lovers will have one glorious afternoon in which to soak up the best of the best thanks to the 4th Annual LA Vegan Beer & Food Fest, which will take place this year on May 4th at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood.
The event is presented by The Roxy, Tony's Darts Away, and local vegan web personality Quarrygirl. During the fest, attendees can enjoy unlimited craft beer from multiple breweries and live entertainment for the price of entry, and there are tons of vendors and food trucks serving up vegan eats (that'll cost you extra). VIP tickets include early entry (one hour ahead of general admission) and access to the On the Rox Lounge.
We spoke to Quarrygirl last fall, and asked her specifically about what makes beer and other alcohol vegan:
"We created the LA Vegan Beer & Food Fest to showcase the very best in food, music and (of course!) beer. All of it completely cruelty-free. Brewmasters, winemakers and distillers sometimes include animal products in their recipes, or use them in the filtering process. A vegan alcoholic beverage (be it beer, wine, or spirits!) contains no animal products (meat, dairy, honey), and uses no animal products in the filtering process (isinglass/fish bladders and gelatin are somewhat common)."
