Co-Founder, Steam Whistle Brewery
Steam Whistle Brewing Co. Founders

Since establishing Steam Whistle Brewing in 1999, Greg and Cam have given priority to the environment across their operations. Whether in buying capital equipment, developing policies, choosing employees and suppliers, investing in natural ingredients, insisting on sustainable packaging or finding alternative energy sources for production, their commitment to innovation has earned Steam Whistle their reputation as Canada’s greenest brewery. With significant capital investments, Steam Whistle has continued to reduce waste (a 94.2% diversion rate in 2011), conserve water (4,500,000 litres a year) and energy (through the use of biofuel, green electricity and deep lake cooling) and delivers a clear message of stewardship to a dedicated team. The result is an engaged workforce that now expects and drives both social and environmental responsibility at Steam Whistle Brewing – as well as brewing great beer!
