(SCOTLAND)

A Glasgow beer maker has launched a brew made with leftover morning rolls in a bid to reduce food waste.

Jaw Brew’s collaboration with Aulds bakers was brought about through the ongoing efforts of Zero Waste Scotland and the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce to advance a ‘circular economy’ for Scotland’s largest city.

Named Hardtack, it is a low-alcohol blonde beer with a delicate taste.

“We were delighted to partner with Aulds to produce a sensational beer which is also helpful to the environment and fits well with Jaw Brew’s ethos,” company owner Mark Hazell said. “We have had a lot of interest from specialist beer shops, as well as local golf and rugby clubs that are keen to offer a low alcohol alternative to the current on-sale market.”

The beer is available online.
