About Toast Ale
Toast Ale is on a mission to prove that the alternative to food waste is delicious & pint sized. They brew award- winning beer with fresh surplus bread to replace 1/3 of the malted barley. They source bread from bakeries and sandwich makers and brew with Wold Top Brewery in Yorkshire, one of the UK’s most sustainable breweries. All profits go to their partner charity Feedback to end food waste, making Toast the best thing since, well, you know …
In the UK, bread is top of the list of our most wasted household food items. We waste almost 900,000 tonnes of bread every year – around 24 million slices every day. In terms of calories, that’s enough to lift over 26 million people out of hunger.
World Top Brewery use traditional methods and recipes to brew ales with character. The character reflects the fact that the pure, chalk filtered water travels only metres from a borehole to the brewery, that the barley is exclusively Wolds grown and malted by family maltsters and that selected British grown hops impart a distinctive flavour. Crops are surrounded with two metre margins to maintain wildlife biodiversity and maintain 35 acres of species rich chalk grassland that is home to varied flora and fauna. Two wind turbines power the brewery and the farm, hops are recycled as garden mulch, spent grains are collected by a local farmer to feed his cows and reed beds filter waste water.
