What does Carbon Negative beer mean?

Simply put, Gipsy Hill’s carbon-negative beers, made without using offsets, means that every pint of beer served has absorbed more CO2e than it has emitted in its whole lifecycle. From grain to glass, it has a negative carbon footprint

How did Trail come about?

When designing the recipes for our carbon-negative range, we knew we wanted two easy-drinking, sessionable beers. Trail is our pale ale and fits that bill perfectly at 4%. Inspired by the great outdoors, it’s perfect for that post-walk pint

We’ve got an exclusive?

You sure do. Young’s are up there with some of the best when it comes to looking after cask beer. When we wanted to launch a seasonal special variation of Trail, we couldn’t think of anyone better!

What’s next?

Next, we’re focusing on converting the brewery to also be carbon-negative… again without using offsets. This takes time and investment, with meaningful changes to our infrastructure, such as new electric vehicles, introducing renewable energy sources and capturing and reusing more of our by-products such as co2.
