Moosehead Breweries


Moosehead Breweries is the last major brewery in

Canada still owned by Canadians.

Moosehead has a long and storied history. Since 1867 it survived two fires, expanded their line of beers and began distributing Worldwide. Six generations ago, the Oland family, led by matriarch Susannah Oland, began brewing and selling October brown ale on the family farm, located on the Dartmouth shore of the Halifax Harbour. What started as a small one-woman craft brewery, grew with grit throughout time as the commitment to brewing quality beer passed on from generation to generation. Today they are Moosehead Breweries Limited. Led by Susannah’s great-great-great grandson, Andrew Oland.

Located in Saint John, New Brunswick, Moosehead Breweries is the last major brewery in Canada owned by Canadians. The Oland family’s passion for beer has helped them steer Moosehead through devastating fires, Prohibition, the Great Depression, two world wars, obstructive trade barriers and bruising competition from breweries 100 times its size. Through it all, this passion for serving Canadians never wavered, and it is this commitment to consumers and staying true to authenticity that has pushed them to outlast their competitors.

This was the first beer to be branded Moosehead. ‘Moose Red’, as it is referred to in the Maritimes, has a recipe dating back to 1931 and has a loyal following. A true top-fermented al, Moosehead Pale Ale is medium bodied and fermented at warmer temperatures to impart its floral aromatics.
