Book Description

Oct. 1 2001

Winner of the 2002 North American Guild of Beer Writers' Quill & Tankard Annual Writing Award

The Canadian brewing industry predates Confederation by two hundred years; Canada boasts the oldest, continuously operating brewery in North America. Canadian brewers have survived the persecution of the Temperance Movement and Prohibition, the Great Depression, two World Wars and the challenge of Free Trade. Today, brewing in Canada is a 10 billion dollar business whose one constant is change.

From its colonial past to the microbrewery renaissance, Brewed in Canada is a passionate narrative of individual power, colourful characters, family rivalries and foreign ownership. Individual stories tell of personal success and failure, bankruptcies, takeovers, consolidation and rationalization. As men of influence, these brewers made significant contributions to their local communities and the country. Beyond the day-to-day operation of their brewing business, some would make their mark in politics, while others built churches, hospitals and helped establish universities. A commitment to community service - and to brewing excellence - continues today.

A book that will appeal to history and beer buffs alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you are already interested May 10 2013
By GA Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book will appeal to those who are interested in either the brewing industry or Canadian history. It gives a thorough account of the openings and closings of many Canadian breweries over the centuries; but until the age of the craft brewery arrives in 1980, the author fails to discuss which beers (if any) were any good.

There are not many interesting stories or characters in the book, which may be the fault of history rather than the author. If you have no pre-existing interest in Canada or beer, this book will not entertain you.
