Rev-ALE-ution

We’re creating a rev-ALE-ution. Beer is an awesome way to raise awareness of food waste, so we’re going global … but staying local.

We don’t export. All Toast is brewed by local breweries, using local sources of fresh surplus bread.

And we’re supporting local food organisations to end food waste and to fix injustices in the food system.

We launched in the USA in April 2017, brewing with The Chelsea Craft Brewery. We’re hugely proud to have been stocked in Whole Foods in New York from the beginning, and to now be in lots of stockists all over the state.

In October 2017 we launched in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, brewing our Lager with Green Lab brewery. Proceeds will go to Gastromotiva, a not-for-profit that provides food training to empower and inspire those living on the margins of society.

On November 2017 we launched in Cape Town, South Africa. We’re brewing our Pale Ale with Devil’s Peak brewery to benefit Soil For Life, a non-profit organisation that trains unemployed people to grow their own food.

Also in November 2017, we launched in Reykjavik, Iceland. The brewers at Ægisgarður brewery have adapted our Pale Ale recipe to use Icelandic bread. Proceeds will go to Vakandi, a non-profit organisation raising awareness of food waste.

In addition to our core range, brewed in Yorkshire, we also collaborate with breweries all over the UK. Check out the beers we’ve produced together here

But so much bread is wasted that we can’t solve the problem alone. Other brewers are taking up the challenge of saving the planet …
