Wasted Potential Imperial Stout by Ant Brew is an unconventional beer that gets its distinctive characteristics from goose droppings. Alongside additions like wild herbs and food waste, the beer uses goose droppings to kick-start discussions about using ingredients in unconventional ways to offer novel products and clean up the environment in the process.
According to Ant Brew, "The poop is used in a food-safe way to smoke malt to create a unique stout beer. The goose droppings are gathered from local parks, where geese are causing a messy problem. Now, the local parks get cleaner and the special edition summer beverages are perfect for a picnic in the park-a true two birds with one stone type of solution." This beer comes from a series of Wasted Potential beer products that highlight the city of Lahti's green initiatives.
