WHAT IT IS?
No, it is not a joke. A small-scale Finnish brewery ‘Ant Brew’ produces beer with goose poop. The beer is brewed using wild herbs, local food waste such as bread, berries, fruit and the most uniquely unbelievable: goose poop. It is a beer with a clear message about the circular economy.
WHY IT’S COOL?
Goose poop is collected in local parks. This ensures that the parks remain clean. Equally important of course is counteracting food waste on broader dimension. Ant Brew does. Their product is a perfect example using residual food streams — with goose poop as the most surprising. “The new beer series is a way to initiate important discussions about food waste, urban agriculture and the potential of local, wild food,” says Kari Puttonen, the owner of Ant Brew.
WHY IT HAS FUTURE GROWTH POTENTIAL?
The use of goose droppings is a good step in the right direction. Don’t worry, Kari Puttonen from Ant Brew says “it doesn’t taste like goose droppings”. The dung is used to roast the malt and gives the beer a smoky taste. Sales of specialty beer are increasing. People are always looking for new flavors. They are also looking for honest food production. This beer can’t disappoint!
