Every day bakers across the globe make fresh bread for hungry consumers, but sadly, around 44% of that ends up getting thrown away. Toast Pale Ale is the beginning of an attempt to end that waste, so if drinking beer for a good cause is your thing, you might be interested. Brewed by Hambleton Ales in Yorkshire, UK the beer gives new life to discarded bread by adding it to a simple recipe that also includes malted barley, hops, and yeast. In the UK, you can buy between 6 and 24 bottles for the same price, and all profits go directly to an environmental charity dedicated to ending food waste.
Some people drink IPAs year round. But for others, it’s more of a seasonal choice to be enjoyed as the temperature rises outside. For both groups comes Speed Merchant IPA from Platform Beer Company in Cleveland, Ohio. It’s easy to support our home state, and even easier when the beer is good, and that’s the case with Speed Merchant. It’s a white IPA brewed with wheat that packs plenty of tropical fruit and citrus into the mix and should be a constant in your cooler this summer.
