Although not particularly well known, Canada is a major brewer. Premium beers that are a real treat.
History of Canadian beer
Beer arrived in the North American country from the hands of European settlers in the 17th century. However, shortly thereafter, Canada passed a law prohibiting both the sale and consumption of alcohol. Thus, many of the breweries that had been founded over the years disappeared. The production of beer in Canada did not settle until the 20th century.
In Canada, you can find some of the most renowned breweries in the world. One of the most famous is Molson Coors, founded in 1786 by the Englishman John Molson; it is the second oldest company in Canada and currently, it continues to brew following the traditional recipe.
