We’ve started collecting a list of #HonestCleanBeers. If you haven’t already signed the petition to ask Anheuser-Busch and Miller Coors to disclose their ingredients, please join us now here

The beers on this list below are clean of additives (including processing aids like carrageenan and isinglass) and transparent about their ingredients. They either list the complete ingredients on their website, on the bottle label, or emailed us the ingredient list.  We have not been compensated in any way for these recommendations and we are in no way affiliated with these brands. We know there are many more brands out there, if your favorite beer is not on this list, contact them to find out the truth. We will be constantly updating this list as we get more information.

Please Note:  Most German beers are brewed in accordance with German Purity Law – Reinheitsgebot – and only can contain a core ingredient list of water, hops, yeast, malted barley or wheat.  Although most German beers are not listed here, a reference to “Reinheitsgebot’ will typically be noted on the label. 

In my new book, Feeding You Lies, I delve deep into the lies that food and beverage companies tell us to get us to keep buying their products.

My hope is that it will change the food industry again, by encouraging them to use more transparent practices and improve their products.

We need all hands on deck, Food Babe Army! Pre-order a copy below to be one of the first to read it and be part of our movement pushing the industry to do better.
