After mastering the skill of brewing in England in the late 1970s, Charles MacLean brought his expertise to Ontario and helped forge the path for the Ontario Craft Beer scene. During that time, Charles had his hands in the start-up of several Ontario breweries, consulting and developing both their breweries and brews still enjoyed today. More recently, after committing many hours learning the trade from Charles at his small home brewery, Michael D’Agnillo and Curtis Schmalz convinced him to delay retirement, and follow their shared passion for beer. Using Charles’ legacy, the guys came together to expand and create the new MacLean’s Ales. Brewing began last June 2014 in Hanover (2 hours north of Toronto).
