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.

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.

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!
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.
