AN award-winning baking school has teamed up with a Latchford brewer to make an ale loaf for the 2020 World Bread Awards.

Room Forty issued a plea to Warrington brewers through the Warrington Guardian to create a unique product for the competition.

Bread making and beer brewing have much in common as both use yeast and fermenting in the process. The plea was answered by 4Ts Brewery, based in Manor Industrial Estate.

Head brewer Jordan Millington said: “We are as passionate about beer as Room Forty is about bread.

“And we are both proud of our Warrington home. We jumped at the chance to try and create the unique Warrington Ale Bread.

“It would be great to win particularly as we celebrate our 10th year of trading this year.”

Jen Perry, owner and founder of Room Forty, wants to create a signature loaf that will become synonymous with Warrington.

She added: “It was fabulous to hear from Jordan just the day after the article appeared. Thank you Warrington Guardian.

“4Ts produce a vast range of beautiful craft ales and we are already experimenting with different brews to create different flavours before deciding on ‘the one’.

“We are also exploring the prospect of using their yeast which has been used in the brewing process to make the bread. These are exciting times.”

Room Forty won silver in the 2017 World Bread Awards with its White Delight loaf and is going for gold this time.

4T’s Brewery was founded in 2010 by John Wilkinson with Jordan Millington taking up the reins as Head Brewer in 2013.

The World Bread Awards take place in London in September.
