RISE UP SERIES
CHOCOLATE STOUT (6.2%)
Rise up for Forests
Food production is the biggest cause of deforestation, as trees are cleared to graze animals and grow crops. But one-third of food is wasted.
We can change this by reducing food waste, eating less meat and dairy, and avoiding palm oil. And by better managing forest resources, eliminating clear cutting and planting new trees, we can we can mitigate climate change and protect biodiversity.
About The Series
Toast Ale has launched Rise Up, a campaign to raise awareness of our broken food system, and galvanise action to fix it for people and the planet.
For Rise Up, Toast will release a series of limited-edition beers brewed in collaboration with fellow B Corp brands Divine Chocolate, teapigs, Hobbs House Bakery, Oddbox, Rebel Kitchen, Rubies in the Rubble and Cafe Direct. The beers will be released sequentially as a countdown to COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference of Parties being held in Glasgow in November 2021. Each beer will highlight different elements of the ecological crisis , and the systemic change needed to the food system to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss. Read more here.
Toast brews planet-saving beer using surplus fresh bread. This prevents food waste, and reduces the demand for malted barley, and thereby the demand for land, water and energy. Toast open sources a recipe for home brewers and collaborates with breweries all over the world to scale its impact. All its profits go to charities fixing the food system. Toast is a social enterprise and the first UK brewery to become a B Corp.
