Labatt Brewery Tours directions
Labatt has been shaped by more than 160 years of brewing excellence. Since 1847, the company has never lost sight of the fact that it?s in business to serve its customers and consumers. By continually finding innovative ways to enhance the consumer experience with its brands, we evolved from a single small brewery in London, Ontario to become an internationally renowned brewer.

With a portfolio of 60 quality beers and breweries from coast to coast, Labatt today employs 3,000 Canadians across five major markets: Western, Prairies, Ontario, Québec, and Atlantic.

Since 1995, Labatt been part of Belgium-based InBev S.A., the world?s leading brewer, which produces more than 200 fine beers in 130 countries around the globe.

Labatt has deep roots in Canada stemming from its founder John Kinder Labatt. In 1847, a little more than a decade after arriving in London, Ont. from Ireland, John Labatt revealed in a letter what was to be his life-long calling: ?I have been considering this brewing affair for some time,? he wrote to his wife, ?and think it would suit me better than anything else...?

That same year, he purchased London?s Simcoe Street brewery in partnership with Samuel Eccles and by 1855 had become the brewery?s sole proprietor. The brewery was later renamed John Labatt?s Brewery, marking the beginning of one of Canada?s largest and most successful companies.

Along with a passion to brew beer, John Labatt also knew a thing or two about business. He realized the Great Western Railway, completed in the late 1850s, was the company?s ticket to expansion outside London. No longer limiting beer sales to London and environs, the railway opened new markets for Labatt in Toronto, Montréal and the Maritimes and formed the foundation for future aggressive marketing strategies.
