When life hands you lemons, make…beer! Well, you make beer if life really handed you bruised peaches. There’s a wonderful program that takes unsellable, bruised fruit that was going to be thrown away and helps it be used. As part of the Plate of the Union campaign, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has an initiative to bring attention to food waste, estimated to be 40% of the U.S. food industry. In a move to focus attention on an often overlooked issue, EWG partnered with a craft brewery to add “rescue” bruised stone fruit during the beer fermentation process to give it a fruity flavor. Bringing the issue of food waste to the public eye, EWG is hoping to inspire more participation in food-waste reduction activities. Here’s a toast to Ugly and Stoned beer. May it make its way in the world to inspire far-reaching change to feed the planet!
