Really, Upper Canada is brewed here in the Maritimes now? I find that odd considering it's not available here. Wouldn't it make more sense to brew closer to where it's being sold?

The deal is for $36.5 million, all cash, and Sleeman assumes Unibroue's debt of $5.5 million. The majority shareholders, Dion, Charlebois et al, control 71.5% of Unibroue's stock and the deal has their unanimous approval. Can Clear de Chambly be far behind? Truly a sad end for a brewing pioneer in Canada.
