It is my pleasure to announce the creation of Brewers Supply Group (Canada) Limited and the successful acquisition of Gilbertson and Page (G&P). These two actions memorialize further geographic diversification for BSG and allow us to serve the Canadian Craft Brewing market from three existing warehouse locations across Canada. The prior owner of G&P, Ms. Helen Knowles, and several other G&P employees will continue to work for BSG in Canada as we integrate the business into the BSG’s systems and culture.
Over the past ten years everyone at BSG, Rahr and our network of top quality brewing ingredient suppliers have worked so hard to establish BSG’s Craft Brewing market leadership position in the US and this strategy enables the extension of this position across both countries.
Congratulations to the acquisition team and BSG!

Chief Executive Officer
