The result of the collaboration is The Toasted Crumpet, a 4.2% abv session IPA where some malted barley has been replaced by crumpets that would have otherwise been disposed of.
‘We’re thrilled to announce an innovative way of utilising our "wonky" products whilst celebrating the nation’s love of crumpets in a whole new way,’ said Darren Littler, head of product innovation at Warburtons.
The collaboration is in line with Toast Ale's green ethos. The company was launched by British author and sustainability activist Tristram Stuart with the aim to tackle the environmental and social impacts of food production by upcycling waste bread in beer making.
Warburtons said that The Toasted Crumpet is just a limited release, but could become permanent depending on consumer demand.
