“This is our way of doing something good for the planet, and we’re really proud to have H-E-B as our first big wholesale account,” said Yoni Medhin, co-founder of Grain4Grain. “This H-E-B Spent Grain Beer Bread is the premier bread made with our spent grain flour launched under the H-E-B brand. We’re also working with a number of other companies to create healthier, more sustainable, food options made with our sustainable grain and flour, including dog treats.”
The H-E-B Spent Grain Beer Bread and other baked goods made with Grain4Grain’s flour have a natural beer flavor from the microbrew partnership, Medhin added. Currently, Grain4Grain is sourcing their spent grain from San Antonio-based Freetail Brewing Co. and is working on expanding sourcing from other local micro-breweries such as Real Ale Brewery in Blanco, Texas.
