Meet Toast Ale

Meet Toast Ale

Did you know almost half of all bread produced ends up being wasted? It makes sense when you think about it: grain is one of the most plentiful, inexpensive, and easily accessible resources we have. But that doesn't mean it should be taken for granted!

At Eataly, we're big believers in combating food waste, so we're excited to start a new partnership with Toast Ale, the sustainable company that brews beer from bread.

Over the last few months, our brewers and the folks at Toast Ale teamed up to craft a special collaborative beer: Salute! Brewed on our rooftop, just steps away from SABBIA, this IPA is made with our own leftover housemade rustica bread from our bakery. This gave our beer a nice "bready" body balanced out by a generous dosing of Columbus and Mosaic hops, which make for a bouquet of tangerine and bubble gum.

Taste this beer for yourself starting Friday, September 8, at SABBIA! When the last sip is gone, we'll donate 10 percent of all revenue to Toast Ale.

Then, get to know the Toast Ale crew at a special "Meet the Brewery" event on Thursday, September 21. Join us at SABBIA from 6-8 p.m. as we toast to good friends, good beer, and great causes. No need to register for this event; seating at the bar is first come, first served.

Founded in London in 2016 by Tristram Stuart and brought to the U.S. by Madi Holtzman later that year, Toast Ale sources fresh, surplus bread that would otherwise be wasted. Their signature pale ale is brewed locally in the Bronx with surplus loaves from Bread Alone Bakery, and what's more, 100 percent of their profits are poured into the charity, Feedback Global.


We'll toast to that. Salute!
