Guinness Open Gate Brewery has announced that it has teamed up with Dublin-based sustainability groups, The Useless Project, and organic, Dublin bakery, Bread 41 to launch a sustainable brew.
The limited-edition beer will be brewed using bread that would have otherwise gone to waste as a key ingredient, Guinness said.
The brewer noted that bread is the most wasted food on our planet, with over 240 million slices being thrown out each year.
Having been supplied leftover Rye and Buckwheat loaves from Bread 41, the Guinness brewers have transformed this otherwise unwanted ingredient into a sustainable beer with fruity aromas, sweet malty notes, and slight spice from the rye, it added.
Taz Kelleher, co-founder of The Useless Project said: “We worked alongside the brewing team in Guinness to create this delicious waste busting brew and we’re so excited to share it with the world."
The UseLess Brew will be available on tap for a limited time only at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery.
