Labatt to close Lakeport Brewery in Hamilton, laying off 143 workers

TORONTO, Ont. – Labatt Breweries is closing its Lakeport Brewery facilities in Hamilton and laying off 143 workers.

A spokesman for the company said that all production of Lakeport beer will be shifted to Labatt’s operations in London, Ont., effective April 30.

The move comes as demand for the Lakeport product slides, Labatt spokesman Jeff Ryan said.

He said the closure will not affect the availability of Lakeport products in stores.
