The First Brewery

The first brewery in Canada was La Brasseries de La Francheville, established in 1650 in Trois-Rivières, Quebec. It was founded by Jesuit priests who brewed beer for their community and for trade with the local population. This brewery represents the early beginnings of the Canadian brewing industry, reflecting the adaptation of European brewing traditions to the new world. This early establishment set the stage for the development of a vibrant and diverse beer culture in Canada
