Sleeman Breweries

John H. Sleeman founded this brewery in 1851 and began a dynasty whose descendants are a part of Guelph's history. Today’s modern brewery building not only showcases the brewing process and its sustainable practices, but it also tells the history of the Sleeman family through memorabilia that you will explore in the museum (no brewery tours, but samples available).
