Supplementing the Wagyu with alcohol. Truth or myth?

True (ish). While the old folk law of allowing your Wagyu to drink ale to aid good results might be an old wives tale? We have introduced brewers grain to supplement their diet.

I searched high and low and contacted many breweries to see if we could get any. Emails, websites and private messages on Instagram and only one person responded to say no, all of the (local) (very local) companies ignored me. That was until a friend who knew owners of a brewery stepped in to help. Thank you Danielle!

Huge shoutout to The Cotswold Brewery who will be providing these grains to us.

We recently met with         to see how their brewery operates and too understand a little more of the grains and processes involved.


Brewer's grain is a byproduct of the brewing process, specifically the production of beer. It is comprised of the residual grains, hops, and yeast left over after the wort has been fermented.

The benefits of feeding cattle brewers grain include:

  1. Nutritional value: Brewer's grain is a rich source of protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals, making it an ideal supplement for cattle diets. 

  2. Palatability: Cattle often find brewer's grain palatable, which can help increase feed intake and improve weight gain.

  3. Reduced waste: By utilizing a byproduct of the brewing process, farmers can help reduce waste and contribute to a more sustainable agriculture system.

  4. Improved gut health: The yeast in brewer's grain can help improve gut health and function in cattle, leading to better digestion and overall health.

I will update on our cattle's progress soon 🤞🏻
