Description

The Companion Series is a limited-edition collection of 26 beers from 25 breweries in the UK and Ireland, all brewed with surplus bread to prevent food waste and take less of nature’s resources. Check out the list of beers below.

Perfect as an alternative advent calendar (with a bonus 2 beers on Christmas day)!

With every case purchased, we donate £26 to conserving and restoring nature: £13 will protect 1,300 trees in threatened tropical rainforests with Rainforest Trust UK, and £13 will capture 144kg CO2 by improving the health of soils on UK farms (which then hold more water, improve biodiversity and produce more nutritious food) with Soil Heroes.

The box also includes a limited-edition pint glass and treats from Cheeky Panda, Divine Chocolate, Emily Snacks, Liberation Nuts, Teapigs and Traidcraft*.
Bread not included.

Please note discount codes are not valid on this case due to the large charitable donation.

 

The Beers (all suitable for vegans)

Adnams "Turning Tide" - Raspberry Scotch Ale 330ml, 4.1%
The surplus bread, malted barley and oats give Turning Tide caramelised, sweet, bready characteristics. This is balanced by the contrasting acidity of the raspberries and hints of hedgerow fruit and citrus flavours from the addition of Endeavour and Bramling Cross hops.

A roasty, caramely Hoppy Porter with hints of Blackcurrant, citrus and cedar wood, brewed with our friends at Toast Ale, using a blend of wasted bread to highlight the impact of food waste on the planet.

This IPA is brewed with Norwegian Voss Kveik yeast & hopped with Simcoe, Ekuanot, El Dorado & Comet for a pronounced hit of pithy orange, grapefruit & tropical fruit punch.
