Steelback Beer Is Back

TORONTO, May 22 /CNW/ - Today in Toronto, the new Steelback management team announced their business plans for success after a six-month restructuring process that saw Jonathon Sherman become the new owner and CEO.
"These are exciting times for the new Steelback," says Sherman. "The future success of Steelback is rooted in three things - good people who make up the Steelback team; good roots - our renewed commitment to our local
heritage in Tiverton, Ontario; and good beer - where we continue to be recognized by the industry and beer drinkers alike, winning medal after medal for our great tasting, premium crafted beer.
On May 6, 2008 the sale of Steelback to Jonathon Sherman was official.
Steelback Brewery is also focused on filling a gap in the beer market place by offering premium quality craft beer at mainstream domestic prices. To date this category has been non-existent, and is set to offer beer drinkers a
high quality premium beer at an everyday price.

We will offer this great brew throughout Ontario with the main focus on our local community of Bruce County. We're all about the beer and we hope that consumers will try Steelback and enjoy the award-winning taste."
