In April 2019, Denver Food Rescue and our partners at Metro Caring, Izzio Bakery, and The Post Brewery launched Penny Loafer Pale Ale —
a beer collaboration that brings together common concerns and passions in our community.
This collaborative came together to address two problems: Food waste and food insecurity. It also focused on something we love: great beer.
How It Works
- We take otherwise wasted bread from Izzio Bakery to our friends at The Post.
- The Post “up-cycles” the bread, utilizing the grains and natural sugars to make a delicious beer.
- Restaurants, bars, and community partners buy the kegs, and share it with customers.
- For every pint sold, $1 comes back to support Denver Food Rescue and Metro Caring, which work to build an equitable food system in our community.
