Since its founding in 1867 by the Oland family the Moosehead Breweries have survied fire, takeover bids, prohibition, the Depression, two world wars and absolute destruction in an explosion. The same Oland family still operaters the brewery.
The Moosehead saga began in 1867, when Susannah Oland first brewed a solitary batch of brown October ale in her backyard in Nova Scotia. Encouraged by the welcome reception her beer received from friends and family members, Susannah and her husband, John James Dunn Oland, began to market the beer and the Oland family brewery was named the “Army & Navy Brewery,” and thrived for several years. Susannah was the only woman to run a mjor company in North America at this time. Susannah eventually retired to Virginia and her son took over the brewery renaming it “S. Oland Sons & Co.”.
Moosehead Breweries has occupied its current building in Saint John, New Brunswick, since it bought Ready’s Brewery in 1928. This building was coincidentally built in 1867, the same year Susannah Oland began brewing beer. Moosehead Breweries brews, packages and kegs all of its products from this building, that also serves as the head office for administrative staff and production.
