Canada’s largest independent craft brewer has partnered with the province to expand into a new facility in Etobicoke — a move that will create 175 new jobs.
More room to brew means Steam Whistle can expand its product line through the launch of a second beer brand, a premium Ale-style beer.
Increased brewing capacity allows Steam Whistle to achieve rapid growth and increase production to meet demand in Canada and begin to distribute its products into the United States.
Steam Whistle will create around 175 new full-time jobs within Ontario, and partner with approximately 30 local contractors, creating several short-term jobs.
