Edible Surplus Food to Re-Worked Into Beer

Citizen was started by a group of people that wanted to go about changing the statistics of food-waste. Every Citizen product is made using edible surplus food. This food is rescued and re-worked into delicious food and drink.

The brand's first product is beer made using surplus bread. Every can uses the fermentable starches from one rescued slice of surplus bread. Slice by slice, it adds up. The team then use their brew mash to create high-quality, nutritious, spent-grain flour that is used to bake Citizen breads.

Behind the scenes, the team are preparing more awesome food and drink offerings to launch. It's all part of their mission to help rebuild a broken food system.

Welcome to the world's most delicious revolution!
