WE HAVE NEVER LOST SIGHT OF OUR ORIGINAL VISION
Since its reopening in 1988, Sleeman Breweries has grown to become the third-largest brewer in Canada. Formed by the merging of Canada’s best craft breweries.
A history of quality brewing
The Sleeman name has been immersed in beer tradition for five generations. In fact, the Sleeman family wrote the book on it — literally. The Sleeman brewing tradition in Canada extends back to 1834 when John H. Sleeman arrived in Ontario from Cornwall, England. By 1851, he started the first Sleeman brewery to be located in Guelph, Ontario, brewing small 100-barrel batches.
Today, Sleeman Breweries is Canada’s third largest national brewer. We may have become a bigger company, but we have never lost sight of our original vision to bring Canadians better beer. We’ve built an incredible portfolio of beer brands in Canada; great Canadian brands such as Sleeman, Okanagan Spring, Unibroue and Wild Rose, combined with world-class beers such as Sapporo, Old Milwaukee and Pabst Blue Ribbon. No matter what you’re looking for in a beer, we’re sure we have something you’ll love.
