Instead of letting any excess bagels end up in a garbage graveyard, Rise and Modist began collecting the bagels in an effort to do what any responsible people would do: turn them into beer. Over the course of about a month, Rise and Modist were able to collect 150+ lbs of bagels that were then ground into a flour that formed the malt bill of No Bagel Wasted.
The beer, brewed from Rise Bagels along with some White Clover honey, is a toasty, easy-drinking lager that will go on tap at Modist on January 26th. 10% of all proceeds from the beer will be donated to Twin Cities Food Justice – a 100% volunteer organization that works tirelessly to help reduce food waste and hunger.
We’ll all be at Modist celebrating the release from 1-3 PM on Saturday. Come bye say hi.
