STAMFORD, Conn., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When Susannah Oland opened the Army and Navy Brewery in 1867, she hoped to create a business that could be passed down to her sons. Six generations later, her legacy – and the company eventually renamed as Moosehead Breweries – lives on. This year, the company is celebrating its 150th anniversary.

 

It hasn't always been an easy path for the brewery, which has endured two fires, Prohibition, the Halifax Explosion and two wars as it expanded across Canada, into the US and eventually, around the world. The brewery shares its anniversary with the country of Canada, which is celebrating its own 150th birthday this year.

 

"It's fitting that we share our anniversary with the country we call home," explains Andrew Oland, President, Moosehead Breweries. "Like Canada, we've faced challenges along our path, but – like Canada - we've risen to the challenge time and time again to not only endure, but thrive. And through it all, we've been able to remain fiercely independent and stay true to our own ideals."

 

To celebrate the anniversary, Moosehead will launch new 150th-themed bottle labels for Moosehead Lager and introduce Moosehead Radler in draft in the US. Several anniversary-themed consumer promotions are also planned.

 

Georgia Homsany, US Brand Director for Moosehead added, "We hear again and again from our customers and fans across the United States, who adore Moosehead for its authenticity, it's independence and, of course, its great beer."

 

Moosehead Lager won a Silver medal in the Lager category at this year's New York International Beer Competition. At last year's competition, Moosehead Radler won a gold medal and "Specialty Beer of the Year." Moosehead and Moosehead Radler are imported by United States Beverage and distributed nationally throughout the US.

Fueled by five years of successive growth, brand looks to reshape the QSR industry

VAUGHAN, ON, April 25, 2017 /CNW/ - Today, Taco Bell Canada announced plans that beginning in June 2017, select retail locations in Canada will offer alcoholic beverage options to legally aged consumers. The move, fueled by five years of consecutive growth in which Taco Bell Canada has outpaced the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry by 28 percent, aims to reinvent the way fans and millennials experience dining in their restaurants.

Taco Bell Canada's flagship store, located at 484 Queen Street West in Toronto, Ontario, is currently expected to be the first location in Canada to introduce alcohol to the menu. Consumers aged 19-plus can expect a selection of beer on the menu, with the potential for more beverages to be added later.

"In the last five years, Taco Bell Canada has experienced tremendous growth, growing at 28 percent, further cementing us as Canada's number one Mexican-inspired restaurant," said Amanda Clark, general manager, Taco Bell Canada. "This announcement highlights how committed we are to further growing our business, and how devoted we are to building deeper relationships with our customers and evolving the way they experience our brand."

In addition to serving beer, Taco Bell Canada also announced their intention to become a 700-restaurant brand in Canada. Currently, Taco Bell Canada operates 170 Canadian restaurants in over seven provinces, and is the leading Mexican-inspired quick service chain in the country.

As part of this growth strategy, the newly opened Taco Bell Canada locations will showcase an overhauled design footprint, featuring updated décor, local artwork, open kitchen layouts, open plating and shareable menus. The new Taco Bell stores provide increased transparency into how food is prepared, while also simplifying and modernizing the restaurant experience.

"At the core of our new design, we stay true to our Californian heritage. We can't wait for our fans to see it," said Clark. "Our initiatives are propelled by what the fans really want, and when it comes to dining experiences, we're not afraid to let millennials take the driver's seat."

Photos of the new store concept can be found here.
