Founded in 1943 as the Dominion Brewers Association, today’s Beer Canada continues to evolve to promote, preserve and enhance Canada’s great brewing heritage in a modern diverse Canada.
Our members are brewers who collectively produce 90% of all beer consumed in Canada, from locally grown barley and other cereal grains.
Beer Canada champions the nurturing of a strong domestic brewing industry and a balanced regulatory operating environment. We provide value-added services to, support and advocate on behalf of, our members and the broader hospitality and agri-food industry.

We are inspired by beer lovers and Canada’s brewers of all sizes and regions, and we want you to be equally inspired. By working together with a common purpose, we can make a real difference and ensure a strong Canadian brewing sector for generations to come.
