In April 2019, Metro Caring and our partners at Denver Food Rescue, 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 Metro Caring and Denver Food Rescue, which work to build an equitable food system in our community.
