Scottish brewery and pub chain, BrewDog is focusing on inclusivity as it relaunches its food menu across its UK network of bars. And with this in mind, BrewDog is collaborating with plant-based food company, TiNDLE as it launches for the first time in the UK.
Founded in 2020, TiNDLE makes alt-protein food products for restaurants and kitchens around the world. Joining forces with BrewDog, it wants to show how amazing plant-based chicken substitutes can really be.
Reducing meat consumption
And excitingly, this partnership with TiNDLE means that more than half of the dishes on offer in every BrewDog bar will be plant-based! AND served alongside a collection of beers that are 95% vegan.
As we are aware, consumers in the UK are showing a growing interest in reducing the amount of meat they eat. And looking positively at the stats, the UK market for meat substitutes is already worth over €500m, making it the largest in Europe.
Chad Crooks, BrewDog’s Director of Food, said: “At BrewDog, we believe in the alternative way of doing things. That is why our new menu is so exciting; it is the culmination of months of looking at every aspect of our food offering. TiNDLE focus on quality, flavour and sustainability every bit as much as BrewDog.
“Having more than half of our options suitable for vegetarian and meat eaters who choose to eat plant-based is incredibly important to us. Our new UK menu has something for everyone. It just doesn’t get any better than that.”
On the menu at BrewDog we will see “Clucky This Time” vegan chicken burger which will now feature Tindle crispy chicken patties. In addition, there will be the Carolina Chicken Burger which consists of a TiNDLE chicken patty, heritage tomato, red onion and Carolina mustard BBQ sauce. Alongside burgers, BrewDog is introducing a selection of healthier sides for those who prefer to switch out fries for a salad.
The menu is going to have a focus on bowl food with new salads such as the Heritage tomato and baby mozzarella. Or the new Protein Power bowl which can include a plant-based chicken alternative.
As we detailed a few days ago, there has been an influx of new plant-based chicken substitutes to the market. Sundial Foods has launched its Sundial Wings to the US market and we think they look amazing! And of course, Quorn veganised several of its products including its ever popular Crunchy Nuggets.
