Clasen’s European Bakery, Capital Brewery team up to offer new menu items made from spent grain
MIDDLETON, Wis. — Clasen’s European Bakery and Capital Brewery are collaborating to reduce food waste using spent grains.
The Middleton-based bakery announced a new line of sandwich breads and soft pretzels Monday that rely on spent grain from Capital Brewery’s brewing process.
“When I learned that Capital Brewery was looking to commercialize its spent grain with baked goods, I couldn’t think of a better local partnership,” Monica Theis, a senior lecturer in the Department of Food Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison said in a news release.
Local grocery retailers–including Woodman’s Market, Willy Street Co-Op, Metcalfe’s Market, Miller & Sons Supermarket and Brennan’s Cellar–will carry Amber White and Supper Club Wheat breads. The breads feature a nutty flavor and richer texture than traditional white and wheat sandwich breads and are made using a sourdough starter, according to the news release.
