Our Green Commitment
Earth is humankind’s haven, and at Haven Brewing Co., we are committed to keeping it that way. Our dedication to sustainability goes beyond just brewing great beer – it’s about safeguarding our planet for future generations. We understand that every action, no matter how small, contributes to the greater well-being of our environment.
From day one, we’ve strived to create a positive environmental footprint. We’ve implemented multiple procedures and processes that reduce our impact on the Earth. We believe that it’s our responsibility to preserve the natural beauty and resources that inspire our craft. Through our sustainability initiatives, we aim to lead by example and inspire positive change within our community.

Together, we can continue to enjoy the beauty and bounty of our planet, all while savoring the delicious brews that reflect our commitment to a greener, cleaner Earth.
At Haven Brewing Co, we’re dedicated to reducing our environmental impact, starting with the simplest changes that can make a significant difference. One of the first steps we took was transitioning our brewery’s lighting to energy-efficient LED systems. These not only save on energy consumption but also contribute to a more sustainable future. But we didn’t stop there; we’ve implemented timers and sensors to ensure that lighting is used only when and where it’s needed. It’s all part of our commitment to making Earth a Haven.
We recognize the importance of water conservation in preserving one of our planet’s most valuable resources. Our brewing methods have been fine-tuned to minimize water waste, and we’ve embraced low-flow technologies to ensure that every drop counts. Our dedication to water sustainability is yet another way we aim to keep Earth a Haven for generations to come.
Supporting local communities is at the heart of our philosophy. We believe that sourcing our ingredients locally not only ensures the freshest, highest-quality products but also significantly reduces our carbon footprint. By choosing local, we’re making a positive impact on both the environment and the communities that surround us.
Our commitment to sustainability extends to every aspect of our operations, including packaging. We’ve invested in eco-friendly materials, opting for recyclable options whenever possible including our 6 pack rings. We’re also exploring innovative alternatives, such as biodegradable options, to minimize the environmental impact of our products.
Reducing waste is a shared responsibility, and we take it seriously. Our brewery is designed to minimize waste sent to landfills. We’ve found creative solutions, such as repurposing spent grain as animal feed for a local farmer. Additionally, we employ forward-thinking technologies like laser etching and 3D printing, which allow us to recycle materials and create unique items like tap handles, coasters, and signage. These initiatives help us make Earth a Haven, one sustainable choice at a time.
Our dedication to reducing our environmental footprint extends to our brewing process. We’re excited to introduce a state-of-the-art nitrogen generation system, which will significantly reduce our use of CO2. We’ve piloted this technology for the last few years and are excited to show how much of an impact this can have at reducing CO2 use and carbon outputs. By choosing more sustainable methods, we’re not only producing great beer but also contributing to a greener, more environmentally friendly brewing industry.
When it comes to our beer, we’re proud to embrace the natural European tradition of bottle conditioning. This method not only enhances the flavor and shelf life of our brews but also greatly reduces our CO2 usage. It’s an environmentally friendly choice that aligns with our mission to create a better, more sustainable future for Earth.
While bottle conditioning serves as a timeless method to create exceptional beer, it’s also a sustainable choice with a positive environmental impact. By relying on natural fermentation to carbonate our brews instead of force carbonation with processed CO2, we greatly reduce our use of carbon dioxide typically required for forced carbonation. The CO2 savings achieved through bottle conditioning represent a substantial contribution to our overall mission of minimizing our environmental footprint.
