Maybe we have too much time on our hands at the moment, but it does make you wonder where all those slices of bread must go.
Most likely they get made into something like tasty croutons or breadcrumbs, but there has to be something more exciting they can be used for.
We decided to do a bit of research and asked our sandwich supplier what they did with them, and the great news is they sent them off to be turned into beer!
The ends of loaves are donated from our sandwich supplier Adelie to Toast ale who then use them to supplement the malted barley in their grain bill and then the carbohydrates are broken down by enzymes to turn them into simple sugars before adding hops and yeast to turn it into beer!
Once we found out all of this we knew it was a product that would be right at home in our bars and hospitality events, and besides being great for sustainability it tastes pretty amazing too!
And as if Toast beer wasn’t doing enough for already they are a certified B-corp company that donates 100% of their profits to charity rather than to their stakeholders.
