One third of all food production does not even make it until our plates. To rescue more food than we already did, we started to experiment again with with food surplus. Together with an Amsterdam based brewery we developed a unique food waste beer: Pieper Bier, made from rescued potatoes! And right now, we are proud to present our newest craftbeer made from bread: Bammetjes Bier!
The Dutch have always been crazy about potatoes, and yet we are letting 340 million kilos go to waste each year. The reasons are of various natures: overproduction, excessively high quality standards and aesthetic demands all cause the potato to end up in the garbage bin. That’s why we make potato beer from rescued potatoes!
Pieper Bier’s taste
Pieper Bier has got a unique taste. The neutral taste of the potatoes cause the hop to stand out more, which translates into a floral bitter taste that is reminiscent of a Pale Ale.
About the potatoes
A part of it comes from the Dutch supermarket Albert Heijn, but we’re also supplied by a potato packaging company.
“DELICIOUS UNTIL AT LEAST…”
The way in which we label our beer includes a playful nod towards the common shelf life. Manufacturers are obligated to incorporate a “best before” date on the label of their product. The expiration date often leads to confusion, because consumers wrongfully believe that they have to throw away the products that have passed this date. Taking into consideration that 42 percent of the food waste occurs in households, we think that the current legislation could use an update. Interested? Check our our food waste page!
