Environmental Sustainability

Sustainability is at the core of our business. Did you know that Whitewater Brewing Co. is effectively powered by whitewater? Our Lakeside Brewery and Brew Pub use renewable energy to brew beer, make meals, and even, turn on the lights through our partnership with Bullfrog Power. Our electricity is 100% offset by low-impact hydro energy, and our natural gas consumption is offset by green natural gas that is sourced from a unique methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s landfill sites. Through innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and injected into the national natural gas pipeline.

In addition to using renewable energy, we have eliminated plastic straws from both of our brew pub locations, we use compostable take-out containers and recyclable beer cases, we’ve implemented sustainable wastewater practices, and as always, use ingredients as local to us as possible. The rugged Canadian landscape is our playground, and it is imperative that we help protect it.

Ethical Sourcing & Social Sustainability

We are committed to supporting our employees and the community at large. Fair wages, a casual work environment, and team-first attitude are some of the benefits of working for Whitewater Brewing Co.

Our community is full of fresh produce, ethically raised meat, and all the ingredients we use in our beer. To help our local community thrive, and limit our impact on the environment, we shop as close to home as possible when possible.

Our goals as an organisation, are to craft high-quality beer and effect positive change in our community, for our environment and employees.
