In 2019, Jackalope became the first brewery in Tennessee to use CiCiTM, a C02 recapture system developed by Earthly Labs that captures carbon-dioxide from the brewing process to be used later in the canning and kegging processes. This means some of the C02 in Jackalope beer is made by a trusty source – our beer!
As yeast breaks down sugars to create alcohol, C02 is created, a byproduct of fermentation. Instead of releasing this C02 into the atmosphere, Jackalope uses CiCi to recapture, purify, and store the C02 to be used later in the canning and kegging processes. As we continue to align all Jackalope fermenters with CiCi, this will prevent over 100,000 lbs. of C02 from entering the atmosphere each year.
