Toast Ale

I mentioned Toast Ale on my blog before, in a round-up, but today I’m going to talk only about them. If you want to know more, check their website. My readers know that I disclose any collaborations I have, but I feel the need to emphasise that this is not a collaboration. I purchased the Toast Ale with my own money and they will find out that I blogged about them when I’m going to tag them on social media.

Toast Ale

Toast Ale is a British brand who manufactures ale using leftover bread which would have been thrown away. So far they used just shy of 2 million slices of bread instead of raw barley to produce the ale. This not only means less waste, but also that it’s less demand on raw materials. All the profits they make are donated to charity.

On top of that they have collaborations with other beer producing companies, including one in US. I think this is amazing. This is why I bought Toast Ale the first time, the second time, and now I placed a huge order, when… funnily enough, we don’t even drink ale/beer/lager. I prefer red wine, Champagne, or spirits. But now I drink Toast from time to time, maybe with a pizza, or I use it in my cooking, for something like Welsh rarebit (link to my recipe).

Toast Ale is also vegan, as you would expect considering that is made by an environment-friendly company. They inspired other companies to join them and there is a list of other beer manufacturers who are taking a similar approach. I love that they are supporting these companies and promote them too.

delivery

At the moment they offer free delivery, so it’s great to take advantage of that. If you don’t fancy buying as much, you can purchase their ale from Co-op, Waitrose. Of course, enjoy it at one of the pubs or restaurants which stock it. There is a search option on their website if you want to see from where you can get your Toast.

You can buy other cans or bottles, depending on what you prefer. Our order arrived fast.

  1. Ah, this is a great idea! I love companies who save items from waste and using something that is so prevalent as bread wastage is amazing! I wish I liked beer! However, CBC does, so I might buy him some- thank you for suggesting it!

  2. This really is a great idea. I’m not usually fond of pale ales, but I’d sure like to try their lager. I briefly checked their website, but didn’t see who they collaborate with in the US.

    1. I saw it on their social media, on Instagram. The beer is called United Rye Stout (@interboronyc on Instagram), it’s a brewery from NY.

      1. Thanks. I’ll have to see if I can find it anywhere. I don’t drink a lot of dark beers (Turbodog from Abita is one of the few I really enjoy), but I’d be willing to try it.
