Beer was introduced into Canada in around 17th century by the British settlers. Refrigeration facilities were then not more developed as they are today and thus Canadian climate favored beer brewing as compared to other parts of the world. Brew industry in Canada has grown largely due to investments from local and foreign investors. Canadian brew industry also boasts of the numerous brew varieties they are able to manufacture among them the Weissbier which is low in after test due to use of wheat in brewing and special Bavarian yeast, Nutcracker Porter is made from dark cinnamons, Figgie pudding, and little sugars, Holy Smoke Scotch Ale with smoky flavor as a result of using malted barley dried in open flame (About.me). Notable top brew companies include the central city brewing located in Surrey, British Columbia, Denison’s brewing company in Toronto, Ontario black oak brewery in Etobicoke, Ontario, Applewood breweries a Stouffville as well as Steamworks group in Gastown among many more others.
