This sucks. Sleeman brewries, the third largest in Canada, is looking for a buyer. I don’t drink Sleeman’s regularly (and hence, I am the problem), but this is one more independent brewry down the tubes. You just know Molsen or Sapporo will buy them out and pirate the company for their lucrative distributorships; (Guinness, Sam Adams, and (surprise) Sapporo).
Just goes to show, buy local, buy often. It’s hard out there for the small guy. I raise a glass of Red’s Rye to the independant brewer. (Note to Founder’s.. call me. We need to fix your website.)
