Our journey to become Canada’s first Carbon Negative Brewery.

The Karbon story started with a simple idea, create beverages that taste great and help our planet. Our mission is to create better beer for a better world. We are seeking real-world change.

Beers & Beverages

We focus on harnessing green technology through the brewing process and cleaning up our supply chain.

We source our ingredients locally - Wolfe Island Hopyard + Clear Valley Hops.

High quality, locally sourced ingredients make for exceptional beverages.

Our beverages are available in select stores, bars and restaurants throughout Ontario.

Reversing our Carbon Footprint.

OUR PLANS FOR A CARBON NEGATIVE FUTURE

CARBON NEGATIVE - The reduction of an entity’s carbon footprint to less than neutral, so that the entity has a net effect of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere rather than adding it.

Our goal is to be Canada's first carbon negative brewery and we aim to achieve this by 2024.

By tapping into a worldwide network of environmental researchers, we are working to innovate, create and apply sustainable solutions to the brewing process.

We track every part of our carbon footprint, analyze our upstream production and downstream sources, we reduce our waste and always choose the most sustainable option we can in every situation.

As a company who seeks a better future, we aim to be transparent and are proud to share our knowledge with our industry to create a "green beer revolution".

A few years ago, the term “green beer” almost invariably referred to artificially emerald drinks for celebrating and sloshing on St. Patrick’s Day. But today, green beer doesn’t merely mean an incoming hangover: It also describes a more ecoconscious approach to brewing, poised to change the industry.

Not to dampen happy hour, but beer is largely unsustainable. “It’s an inherently wasteful process that requires a lot of agricultural input, utilities and waste,” explains Stephen Tyson, founder of Karbon Brewing Co., which launched in 2020 in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood.
