Since its reopening in 1988, Sleeman Breweries has grown to become the third-largest brewer in Canada. Formed by merging three of Canada's best craft breweries and acquired in 2006 by Sapporo Breweries, 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.
After all, we believe Canadians deserve better beer.
