Our founder, Tristram Stuart, was inspired to launch Toast after meeting the Brussels Beer Project. They produce a beer called Babylone, so called because it’s based on a 7,000 year old custom of fermenting bread to create a “divine drink”. Fermentation is an age-old method of preserving food, and what better way to preserve bread than by brewing beer. Tristram launched Toast in the UK in January 2016 as the start of a global movement tackling food waste and we launched in the US, for July 4, 2017.

We contract brew with Captain Lawrence Brewing Company, based in Elmsford, NY (about a 45-minute drive from NYC). Since launching in 2005, they have gone on to win dozens of awards for their beers which are available around the North East and at the Westchester beer hall.
