Wed, 2017-04-19 12:24

New Deal Brewing Co. co-owner Daleyne Guay (EMBA’2016) says that, over the past five years, microbews have risen to 8.9% of the Quebec market, while the majors have lost 1% per year and imports have taken up the space in-between.

New Deal has positioned itself as the province’s only 100% organic brewery, which also maximises sustainability throughout its production process.
