CANADA’S OLDEST INDEPENDENT BREWERY
Moosehead has a long and storied history. Since 1867 we’ve survived two fires, expanded our line of beers and began distributing worldwide. But, believe it or not, we had very humble beginnings.
There’s something inside Canadians that truly defines us. The freedom to think independently. And to fight for what we believe in and love. It’s something – deep down – that we never want to lose sight of, because it’s what makes us who we are.
Moosehead Breweries Limited, is the last independent and truly Canadian brewery in Canada. Six generations ago, the Oland family – led by matriarch Susannah Oland – began brewing and selling October brown ale on the family farm, located on the Dartmouth shore of the Halifax Harbour. What started as a small one-woman craft brewery, grew with grit throughout time as the commitment to brewing quality beer passed on from generation to generation. Today we are Moosehead Breweries Limited. Led by Susannah’s great-great-great grandson, Andrew Oland.
