Alpine was created in the early thirties by P.W. Oland at Moosehead in Saint John.

 

I don't drink beer, but I know a bit about the Olands!

I asked Matt Phillips at a beer event today. He said they're in the top 10.

 

Anheuser-Busch InBev produces Budweiser, Labatt, Beck’s, Stella Artois, Alexander Keith’s, Bass, Lakeport, Lucky, and Oland.

 

Molson Coors Brewing Company produces Molson Canadian, Coors, Rickard’s, Carling, Granville Island, Keystone, and Pilsner.

 

Sapporo Brewing produces Sapporo, Sleeman, Okanagan Springs, and Unibroue.

 

The above three accounted for 90% of sales in 2012, but that has probably fallen slightly. The biggest wholly Canadian brewery is Moosehead, at 3.8% market share across Canada in 2016.

 

The rest of the Top 10 is probably rounded out with big regional breweries, such as Philips, Big Rock, Steamworks, Steam Whistle, Beau's, and McAuslan Brewing. Each one would have less than 4% market share.

^And that barely skims the surface of the entire web of brands. If you order an Apantinsko in a tiny bar in Serbia or a Kaminitza in Bulgaria or a Cobra in New Delhi you're buying a Molson Coors product.

Interesting!

Yah, I only included the ones I know are sold in Canada  :)

 

Glad to be living in BC where there is such a strong craft scene, especially since so many of the brewers collaborate and support each other. Keeps things interesting!

Good to know. I like beer so I avoid M-C products.

M-C products are great if you're at a bachelor party and need to shotgun some beers or are playing washers or beersbie or beer pong.

Beer Pong is very dangerous.

I'm surprised the opposition critics for health and safety aren't proposing new legislation.

 

I always advocate playing on a smooth, ground level surface.

You know what would've been great for the tasting room they're doing? Having a patio on the roof.

^Nothing better than drunks on a roof.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.
