What do you get when you make beer with bread? Toast ale! 

What's this? Another gimmicky craft beer?

If making the world a better place is a gimmick, then yes. Hackney Brewery’s ale is made from old bread donated by local bakeries.

What's so heroic about that?

As a nation we chuck away 24 million slices of bread every day, so this is a small but significant stand against food waste.

Right ho. But how does it taste?

Malty, rather than hoppy. Which makes sense for a beer brewed with bread.

On the subject of bread, how much is it?

Three pounds a bottle, with profits going to a food waste charity.
