How to find exact ingredients in beer.?!

Question: How to find exact ingredients in beer!.!?
I have severe life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts, is there any way i could find out what ingredients are used in beer, since the companies don't put the ingredients on the labels or on the websites!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I would contact the companies directly if you are concerned - there should be links to customer service emails and such on their websites!.

It is very unusual for nuts of any sort to be included in beer recipes!. Beer is made of water, grains, hops (a type of flower), sugar, yeast, and some flavouring ingredients that will vary depending of the brewmaster's recipe!. Certainly the major brands are free of nuts - Molson, Coors, Miller, etc!.!.!. And the most common flavouring ingredients will include fruits, spices, maple syrup, honey - generally things that add sugar for the yeast to consume and add a pleasing flavour for the drinker!. Nuts would add nothing to the brew for fermentation's sake, and I have never heard of a brewer using nuts!. If they did, it would almost certainly be listed as an ingredient due to laws, or in the title as a selling point!.

Do contact the beer companies directly if you are concered (they should happily disclose whether or not they use nuts seeing as it is a health issue), but I can guarantee that major brands that make simple ales and lagers will not use any nuts whatsoever in their recipes because it is not necessary or useful in any way to the beer making process!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Free has the right idea (above)!.

In addition, stay away from any beers that have "nutty" flavours, or are listed as nut brown beers!. If you're really wanting to shy away, don't go near brown beers in general (honey brown for example)!. Some of these nutty tasting beers have nuts and nut byproducts in them!. I had a friend of mine who is also allergic to nuts have a really bad reaction after having a bottle of a nut brown beer!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Write them a letter!. You are assured that a reply will not go into a spam folder!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You could drink German beers!. They're ONLY allowed to use water, hops and malt!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
