“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.

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.

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!
