MORGENROT has secured the UK distribution rights for Canada’s Sleeman Breweries.
The Sleeman beers, which include Honey Brown Lager and India Pale Ale (both 4.8% ABV), are produced to recipes that date back to the 18th century.
The family-owned company has enjoyed a somewhat chequered past, with ties to both piracy and Al Capone. In the 1930s members of the Sleeman family were charged with smuggling beer to Capone during prohibition and handed a 50-year brewing ban. The company in its current form was re-started in the 1980s by current chairman John Sleeman.
Morgenrot national account director Graham Archibald said that Sleeman Breweries has “a real passion for producing great beer”.
