James Cox, one of the founders of Bakers Pale Ale

Nottingham students are using their business skills to create a bread-based beer which sold out in 2 hours at a local pub. 

The beer launched at the Crafty Crow, Friars Lane on 29 November and sold out within two hours. 

James Cox, Andrei Smirnov and Hamish Barguss-Smith study at University of Nottingham and are using their passion for environmental sustainability to make beer called ‘Bakers Pale Ale’ which helps tackle food wastage.

They use surplus bread from Nottingham supermarkets as the base for their brew. 

A percentage of all funds goes to child poverty charity, this includes funding children breakfast clubs across the city.

They are collaborating with the Magpie Brewery.
