As the producers of Ontario’s first certified organic beer, Mill Street has and continues to lead the way in producing some of Canada’s most environmentally-responsible and award-winning craft beer. Beyond Mill Street Organic, we have a strong environmental story and commitment to tell, including the use of co-generation technology, recyclable and reusable packaging, a full line of natural and preservative-free products, and a commitment to minimize our environmental impact.
As the largest producer of certified organic beer in Canada, Mill Street has switched to North American organic malt from European organic malt for our flagship Original Organic Lager in order to reduce shipping distances.
100% of our certified organic barley malt is Canadian grown & processed. Barley is grown in SK & AB, and malted in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
ENERNOC program. We are currently actively working with the city of Toronto who watch our water usage & alert us to available ideas & programs to help us reduce our water/energy consumption…for instance, during high energy demand days in the summer, we are part of a program where we voluntary turn off the cooling jackets on our fermenters (that are already cooled) during peak energy demand times(4 or 8hr blocks) to save energy for the company & overall power grid.

Every year, we strive to improve our Sustainability Best Practices, and are pleased to announce that 100% of our certified organic barley malt is Canadian grown & processed.
