Sleeman Breweries

The Sleeman name has been immersed in beer tradition for five generations. In fact, the Sleeman family wrote the book on it — literally. The Sleeman brewing tradition in Canada extends back to 1834 when John H. Sleeman arrived in Ontario from Cornwall, England. By 1851, he started the first Sleeman brewery to be located in Guelph, Ontario, brewing small 100-barrel batches.
