McAuslan Brewery launched its first beer in February 1989, St-Ambroise Pale Ale which was an immediate success with its distinctive hoppy-ness and clear reddish hue that set it apart and gained it an instant following. Since that time McAuslan has steadily expanded both its brewing capacity and its place in the market introducing other beers like St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout; the Griffon brands, Griffon Extra Pale Ale and Griffon Brown Ale, Frontenac and a family of seasonal beers : Apricot Wheat Ale, Raspberry Ale, Spiced Pumpkin Ale and Strong Ale.

Today Philippe Jaar, vice-president and director general is the face of McAuslan Brewery. With the help of his team, he has found ways to integrate a modern urban approach to McAuslan adding still new flavors, new packaging and new products to the line, like McAdam Urban Cider or McAuslan Honey Ale which are the result of the brewery’s new onsite orchard and beehives. He is proud to meet new challenges while faithfully protecting what has been McAuslan’s strength for so many years — the outstanding quality of its beers.
