All or Nothing Brewery in Oshawa Ont. has purchased all and everything of the Oakville-based Trafalgar Ales & Meads as well as its sister companies, the Black Creek Historic Brewery and Trafalgar Artisanal Distillery. Co-owner Jeff Dornan of All or Nothing says the brewery has no immediate plans to leave Oshawa although the Press release states the purchase comes with a bricks and mortar facility in Oakville.
"All or Nothing will continue to exist in Oshawa for the foreseeable future, we just resigned our lease for another 2 years so we are not planning to uproot and move operations anytime soon. The Durham region has been very good to us over the last couple years and we want to continue to work and live in the community," says Dornan when contacted by Slowcity.ca
The purchase gives All or Nothing access to greater production capacity he says and further investments in the new facility will be made, including fermentation tanks and new canning lines.
"We will be expanding the All or Nothing line into additional wheat beers sticking with our company philosophy of being Canada's choice for wheat beer. We are looking at having an additional All or Nothing sku launch into the LCBO for fall of this year," he says.
Many breweries are becoming community hubs, event spaces and restaurants. Dornan says they have plans to use the location in a variety of ways.
"Trafalgar currently has a great bottle shop and intimate event space that we are looking to freshen up and create more regular programming in. We are always excited when brewery fans come to visit and look forward to welcoming them to the Trafalgar location in the days ahead," he says.
Slowcity.ca is always excited to see creative entrepreneurs coming out on the win side of an all or nothing.
