Sleeman Breweries for Sale

And the prospective buyers are......the usual corporate giants. Too bad.

Oh too bad. Now I had already thought that Labatts had bought them out a few years ago. I guess not. You know, it's not just about the idea of a small microbrewery either. part of waht is depressing is that once these small companies get taken over the ambience of the work place changes. I understand that people want to make a lot of money, and the creators of Sleemans perhpas want to buy a house in antiqua blah blah blah...but when we have smaller companies the idea of less stress int he work place and family oriented support systems, friendships and less corporate backstabbing is a price that is paid for the regular staff. Unless corporations can base themselves on a different set of morals than the profit margins and shareholders benefits...these kinds of mergers take a small business that might be more people oriented into less job satifaction for the workers. i hope I am wrong.
