And so Optimist was born. A beer greater than the sum of it’s parts brewed using left over bread, Optimist is on a mission to reduce bread and food waste in Brighton and Hove and beyond.
With all proceeds being ploughed back into the project we are now on our 5th brew with 2 different styles so far, a hoppy amber ale and a Belgian style wheat beer, a collaboration with the original bread waste crusaders, Toast.
So, where from here? As Bagleman’s bread waste reduces, look out for collaborations with other producers and new and novel ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
The Optimist sees the bagel and the pessimist sees the hole.
If you’re a producer/restaurant or anyone else who has any ideas about collaboration, then please give us a shout – [email protected]
