Could a beer save the planet and feed the world? Every year, 1.3 billion tonnes of food produced for human consumption is lost and wasted. A staggering quaintly of food that could easily feed the 840 million people who are hungry. The UN designated September 29th as International Awareness Day of Food Loss and Waste to grow awareness and inspire action. Toast Ale and Interboro Ales & Spirits have joined together to release ‘United Rye Stout,’ a seasonable craft stout brewed with surplus nordic organic rye bread from Bread Alone Bakery. Upcycling surplus bread reduces food waste, and the land, water and energy requirements to produce and grow malt. On this episode of Tech Bites, host Jennifer Leuzzi talks with Toast Ale founder Tristram Stuart and Interboro Ales & Spirits Founder and Brewmaster Jesse Ferguson about their collaboration.
