You can't get certain beers or most wines either; and you're getting really bored with the usual Heineken - so what's left? 

When in doubt, check Barnivore - an online database with over 30,000 alcoholic beverages that will aid you in the quest to find vegan booze.

Amstel's entire range of lagers and radlers are vegan-friendly, with no animal-based process aids used in the brewing process.
