USE YOUR LOAF,
DRINK THIS BEER

A new range of beers brewed using surplus bread from M&S sarnies is helping fight food waste, one bottle at a time

For a committed carb-eater like me, the fact that 24 million slices of bread are thrown away in Britain each day is a travesty. So this new range of beers made with leftover bread, using the “ends” of our famous sandwiches, had instant appeal. Brewed for M&S by Suffolk’s Adnams brewery, each batch of the Used Our Loaf beers contains 700kg of surplus bread, which is used instead of the traditional malted barley. There are three flavours: a creamy triple English hop pale ale, raspberry fruit beer and delicate Earl Grey pale ale. The process produces fewer carbon emissions, too. Top-quality beer that’s helping fight food waste? It’s a dough brainer.

– ideal ingredients for brewing
a brilliantly bubbly beer”
