Wow! Every year in the Netherlands, 120 million kilograms of bread – or 150 million loaves – are thrown away. That’s quite the bread mountain. Toost beer is brewed using unsold fresh bread.
Toost is developed by BeeBlue and the Amsterdam Brewery Branie Bier. During the brewing process, up to 30% of the malt is replaced by toasted bread that brings sweet hints to the beer. Toost is a sunny pal ale craft beer. The hops give the beer a light bitterness and a fruity, citrusy aroma. The word “Toost” is a cross between the Dutch word for “Cheers!” (making a toast) and the English word for toasted bread. Toast a TOOST to our future!
