How far back does the tradition of making beer out of bread go?

文字稿

Stale bread. Every year it's estimated that Austria throws away enough bread to feed over a million people. But the leftover bread at this shop isn't destined for the bin. It's being made into beer - part of efforts to prevent food waste.

不新鲜的面包。据估计,奥地利人每年扔掉的面包够养活一百多万人。但这家店卖剩下的面包不会被丢到垃圾箱,而是被用来酿造啤酒,这正是酿酒者为防止食物浪费所做的努力。

Tobias Judmaier, food activist
In our little shop that we have in Vienna, we have each day a couple of buns left over which, as such is not a problem. But if you look at it - throughout the month, you'll realise it accumulates and what else could you do with this leftover bread? So we started getting creative and thought of beer.

托比亚斯·荣德麦尔 倡导节约食物人士
“在我们维也纳的小店里,每天会剩下几个小圆面包,这并不成问题。但如果按每月的剩余量来看,你就会发现积少成多,那么就会想还能如何利用这些剩面包呢?所以我们开始发挥创意,想到用它来制造啤酒。”

Making beer out of bread is an old tradition which dates back to Ancient Egypt.

用面包制造啤酒是一个传统手艺,其历史可追溯到古埃及。

This is a niche product. It can't compete with the huge breweries. But its producers say it's about raising awareness of the problem of food waste.

这是一个小众产品,不能和大型酿酒厂的啤酒相提并论。但它的生产者们说,这样做是为了增强人们对食物浪费问题的认识

So every time they crack open a bottle of bread beer these Austrians know they're taking a small step towards fighting food waste.

所以每打开一瓶“面包啤酒”,这些奥地利人就知道他们在打击食品浪费方面迈出了一小步。
