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.

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.

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.

The tasting room has all the new windows installed and work continues inside. Development tracker still shows application as under review by the city.

Victoria-approves-Phillips-Brewery's-plans-for-134-patron-tasting-bar.jpg

An artist's rendering of Phillips Brewing & Malting Co.'s concept for a tasting bar and retail space on Government Street at Discovery Street. The art deco-themed building will feature an iconic, neon lit sign depicting a Phoenix rising above the brewery's name.

 

Victoria approves Phillips Brewery's plans for 134-patron tasting bar

https://victoria.cit...on-tasting-bar/

 

12 months after initiating a rezoning application to build a 3,500 square foot tasting bar and 'experiential' space, Vancouver Island's largest independent brewer and liquor distiller is ever closer to making the facility a reality.

 

Victoria-based Phillips Brewing & Malting Co. set to work in early 2017 to transform a single-storey retail building at 2000 Government Street – adjacent to Phillips’ existing liquor off-sales and reception office near the intersection of Government and Discovery streets – into a 134-patron liquor primary space and retail outlet.

 

Changes introduced since the initial proposal surfaced include plans to install a striking art deco-themed, three-dimensional neon sign featuring a Phoenix rising above the brewery name, an homage to Phillips' Phoenix Lager that elevated the start-up brewer to local fame nearly two decades ago.

Phillips' founder Matt Phillips described the sign in a written statement to Victoria councillors as a design inspired by "cinemas, diners and theatres" of the era during which the building itself was constructed. [Full article]

Looks great. The only thing that seems like a real missed opportunity here is any outdoor interaction - rooftop or street level patio, or even windows that open would have been a great addition for the busiest summer months.

I suspect they wanted to be super gentle in terms of noise as there’s a residence right next to the brewery and sensitivity towards future residential expansion remains top of mind for council.

The tasting bar will open between noon and 10PM.
