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.

A first-of-its-kind research collaboration in North America will see Trent University and Karbon Brewing Co. come together to research and develop green brewing technologies for a carbon-negative future, while also collaborating on curriculum development and offering students hands-on, experiential learning opportunities.
“Create better beer for a better world.” That’s the philosophy that Karbon Brewing Co. CEO Stephen Tyson and COO Yves St. Amand subscribe to. With an overarching goal of initiating impactful change and helping the planet, they’re successfully doing this with beer. In the thick of a devastating global pandemic, the duo were guided by their passion for hospitality, beer, and sustainability and founded Karbon Brewing Co. with sustainability at the heart of every initiative. These passionate principles are also emphasized in every facet of the business, including championing diversity, ensuring equal pay, vetting for an ethical supply chain, and supporting LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities.

The Toronto-based brewery is the quarantine passion project the co-founders decided to tackle when they found themselves with a lot of extra time on their hands and a desire to make a change in the world. But Karbon isn’t making beer like everyone else—it’s on a mission to be the first carbon-negative brewery in Canada by 2024.
Karbon Brewing Co. wants to become Canada's first carbon-negative brewery by 2024. The process of brewing beer is notoriously resource-intensive, using large amounts of water, energy, and heat, while generating significant quantities of packaging waste. Toronto-based Karbon hopes to solve these industry problems by tackling them more methodically than any other Canadian brewery to date.

From the lab to the marketplace, we see a range of interdisciplinary collaborative opportunities with Karbon. Their approach to green and clean research and development is an excellent match with the expertise and spirit of Trent University.”

You know the saying: Save the Earth; it’s the only planet with beer! However, from the amount of water used in the brewing process to the packaging, to transporting ingredients and product, unfortunately brewing is not the most sustainable industry. But there are some creative ways breweries are working around or offsetting these issues. In honour of Earth Day, we checked in with a few Ontario breweries doing their part to make craft beer a little more green. Big thanks to Jenn at Beau’s, Stephen and Teddy at Karbon Brewing, Kyle and Kristen at Half Hours on Earth and Lori, Max, Micheline, Lindsay and Buffy at Avling for chatting with us!

Toronto’s Karbon Brewing Company started with an ambitious goal; to become Canada’s first carbon negative brewery by 2024. Putting sustainability as a business priority is a lofty ambition at the best of times, as is starting a brewery during a pandemic and Karbon has endeavoured to do both. Rather than relying solely on carbon offsets, Karbon aims to use innovative technological solutions to reverse the carbon footprint of the brewing process. Environmental sustainability seems to be top of mind with every aspect of their business model, from brewing to packaging, to ingredients, and even to their merchandise which is made from recycled plastics. They’re using locally sourced ingredients including hops sourced from Ontario’s Wolfe Island Hopyard and Clear Valley Hops. They have also signed on as members of 1% for the Planet, supporting environmental non-profits.

Have you ever really thought about how your beer was made? How much raw material, power, water and fossil fuel it takes to enjoy that crisp crack of a cold one? Over the last decade, we have seen an explosion in craft beer around Ontario. Lagers, IPAs, sours, saisons -- the list goes on. With seemingly endless choices in front of you as you gaze into the craft section of the LCBO or The Beer Store, one brewery is set to stand out from the rest. Karbon Brewing is not offering a new style or flavour of beer but a new way of brewing it, which begs the question. When was the last time you drank a beer that positively impacted the environment? The answer is never!
