Canada: Ontarios Brick Brewing officially changes corporate name to Waterloo Brewing Ltd.
Waterloo Brewing Ltd., formerly Brick Brewing Co. Limited, on June 12 announced it has formally amended its corporate name to Waterloo Brewing Ltd. to align with the Waterloo brand names under which it has been brewing and marketing craft beers for the last 35 years.
Originally established in 1984 as Brick Brewing Co. Limited, the company was the first craft brewer in Ontario and has paved the way for over 270 craft brewers now operating in the province.
This is an extraordinary company, with a truly remarkable history, declared George Croft, President and CEO, Waterloo Brewing. We are a company of pioneers, led in the critical early years by our founder Jim Brickman. It is incredible to think that in the early 80s there were only ten licensed brewers in all of Canada and no such thing as a craft brewer.
We are truly indebted to those original brewers and brewery workers, continued Croft. They created the craft beer movement here in Ontario, starting with the renowned Waterloo Dark. The time was right, however, to begin a new chapter in this companys history. We wanted to cement our commitment to our hometown and the Region of Waterloo by adopting their name as our own; to become part of that regional family, legally and officially. Were truly grateful for the strong, deep roots as Ontarios first craft brewer and humbly hope to live up to the standard set by the brewing pioneers who went before us.
The name change was approved by shareholders at the Annual and Special Meeting of the company held on June 5, 2019 and has been approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The companys common shares, which until now traded on the TSX, under the symbol BRB, commenced trading under the new ticker symbol WBR upon opening of the market on Wednesday June 12, 2019. The CUSIP number assigned to the Companys shares following the name change is 94155W105 (ISIN:CA94155W1059).
