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.

Reversing our Carbon Footprint.


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.

Applying the latest renewable energy technology, solar, wind and bio-fuel we aim to reduce our fossil fuel & water consumption. Tapping into a worldwide network of environmental researchers, we are innovating, creating and applying solutions to the brewing process. Analyzing our upstream, production, and downstream sources, we reduce our waste and choose the most sustainable option we can in every situation. We track every part of our Carbon footprint, and aim to be Carbon Negative by 2024. We are proud to share this information 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.
