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.
