From a press release:
“Typically, local farmers use the spent grain soaked during the brewing process from DC Brau to feed their livestock. But each year during the holidays, the brewery teams up with Pizzeria Paradiso to do something a little more special with that grain.
For the 4th year in a row, the brewery and the pizzeria have baked more than 200 loaves of Brewer’s Grain bread to donate to Bread for the City (www.breadforthecity.org) to feed the less fortunate among us during the Thanksgiving holiday. DC Brau’s Brandon Skall and Jennifer Jackson made the first of two deliveries of this year’s donation earlier today (pictures attached).
Also, from this Friday through Christmas, the public will be able to buy a special Brewer’s grain pizza at any of the 3 local Pizzeria Paradiso locations that use DC Brau’s spent grain in the crust. $2 from each pie will go to benefit Bread for the City.”
