Not long ago, Beer Me BC reported on the story of veteran brewhouse constructor Newlands Systems and its transition to a brand in the portfolio of a large Dutch manufacturing firm. The old Abbotsford plant’s assets were auctioned off and it seemed as though there was no role for British Columbia in the future of what was an iconic North American brewery fabrication brand.
However, an announcement was made recently that promises to restore some of the metallic shine of former glory days. Newlands’ founder Brad McQuhae is back in business, along with parter Balbir Sidhu, at the helm of startup König Brewing Systems. Their press release follows.
