I'm not sure how many people outside of Ontario have heard of Lakeport beer. It's brewed right here in Hamilton and basically their success was built on the 24 for $24 sales police they had. It was quite successful and it was sold to Labbatt's a few years ago. My husband and I were suspecting Labbatt's bought them so that they could eliminate the competition and get rid of the buck for a beer concept that had done so well for this little brewery. This just appeared on our local paper's website: http://thespec.com/News/BreakingNews/article/744966 I know it's "only" 143 people but for the greater community that is 143 families who will be affected and it's bad news for everyone. Hopefully these employees will be able to have jobs in Labbatt's other breweries but I bet the odds of that are pretty slim.
