UNIBROUE: THE QUÉBEC REFERENCE OF
THE NORTH AMERICAN BREWERY SCENE

Unibroue had been the first traditional brewery in North America to use an ancestral brewing method from the Belgian and European brewing traditions. Since, the small company has become one of the most famous in the world.

Faithful to its origins, Unibroue is fully part of the new trend of drinking and enjoying microbrewery tasting beers.

UNIBROUE IN A FEW DATES

Thanks to the global success of Unibroue beers, cumulating praise and medals, the brewery decides to come back on international markets: including Europe with a new distribution partnership: Kanata Entreprises!
On the rise, Unibroue will be bought in 2004 by an Ontario company: Sleeman Brewery.
Aware of the rise of craft breweries, the partners created the Unibroue company and collaborated with the Belgian brewer Gino Vantieghem and the singer Robert Charlebois to launch the first refermented white beer in North America: Blanche de Chambly.
However, in 2010 it will be ``La Fin du Monde`` (The End of the World) for European consummers, since the brewery decides to stop its exports to Europe to refocus on its domestic market.
Quickly, the craft brewery develops and markets other Belgian inspired beers.
In 1994, Unibroue exported its first bottles to the United States and France.
The Unibroue adventure began in 1990 with the purchase of the Lennoxville Brewery Masswippi, by two Quebec businessmen: André Dion and Serge Racine.
