We're proud to be a TOAST Companion
2nd November 2021
We're excited to announce that we have brewed a bespoke beer in collaboration with planet-saving beer brand, TOAST Ale to raise awareness of climate issues.
Our ‘Barm’ beer is one of 26 ales that has been brewed using surplus bread for the limited-edition Companion Series that will raise a minimum of £65,000 for conservation and regenerative agriculture projects.
The beers have been boxed, along with snacks, treats and a branded glass, cost £89.95 and are available online from https://www.toastale.com/item/75/toastale/Companion-Series.html. £26 from the sale of each box will go to conserving and restoring nature via Rainforest Trust UK and Soil Heroes.
"As one of Toast’s early brewing partners, we were proud to be invited to collaborate on this initiative. As a brewery that prioritises sustainability and the environment, working alongside Toast and other like-minded brewers to raise awareness of climate issues is really important and we hope this project captures the imagination and attention of those attending COP26,” said our Director, Alex Balchin.
Barm, 4.4% vol, is a dry-hopped lager with notes of apricots, honey and spices. It is brewed using 100% British ingredients, including barley grown on our farm, as well as surplus bread. The 330ml bottles cost £1.80 and are available to buy online.
The breweries have also signed an open letter calling on world leaders to work together to combat the climate and nature emergency.
