Northern Breweries

Ontario : Sault Ste. Marie
Location #1507

Location Owner:diesel79
Creation Date: 5/3/2010
Last Updated: 1/4/2014

This "sister brewery" to the one in Sudbury, closed down in 2006, and has been abandoned ever since.

Taken from Wikipedia: "The company was established in Sudbury in 1907 as Sudbury Brewing and Malting Co. by J. J. Doran, a hotelier. It began to expand in 1911, with the purchase of the Soo Falls Brewing Co. in Sault Ste. Marie [...] In June, 2006, William Sharpe appeared before Sault Ste. Marie city council and cited poor sales and lack of investor interest as reasons for the downturn in the company's fortunes."

The site is marked as private, since although there is graffiti there, there isn't that much and it'd be nice to keep it that way. We walked around the site and took some pictures, so enjoy!

Collapsed winter 2019

I don't have permission to edit, but this place is now destroyed. The remaining building collapsed under the snow a month or two ago, and they took down the stack at the same time.

Recent Update is that a 17yr old female is charged with a count of "arson" associated with the blaze on Thursday Feb 7th. No body was hurt thank God, the office building was not fully out until 2-3:30am this morning on Friday. And the fire chief stated that there was a large stack of beer boxes and wooden pallets on the upper floor which made it hard for the fire crew to put out the blaze and flam
