Tristram Stuart, an international award-winning author, speaker, campaigner, and expert on the environmental and social impacts of food production. He created Toast Ale in 2015. All profits go to Feedback, the charity Tristram founded, which aims to put a stop to food waste.
Tristram was inspired by the Brussels Beer Project, who created Babylone with bread that would otherwise be wasted based on an ancient Babylonian recipe – making beer out of bread is an “innovation” that may be as old as bread itself!
We first worked with Hackney Brewery to adapt the recipe and optimise the amount of bread used. We are currently brewing with Hambleton Ales in Ripon, Yorkshire.
