What makes a crisp pale ale taste even better? Knowing you’re fighting food waste with every sip.

Toast Ale, a craft beer company founded by author and food waste activist Tristram Stuart, collects fresh surplus bread from bakeries that would otherwise hit the trash and uses it to brew a unique kind of beer. The company has made waves in the UK since 2016, donating profits to Stuart’s organization Feedback.

Now, with a new Indiegogo campaign, it’s finding its way to U.S. shelves this summer. And 100 percent of the proceeds will go to charities fighting food waste.
