BROSSARD, QC – Quebec beer news website Bières et Plaisirs reports that Jonathan Lafortune, co-founder of Microbrasserie Les Trois Mousquetaires (LTM), has left the brewery to pursue other opportunities.
In a statement translated here from the original French, Lafortune says: “The flame is gone. I need to think about my future and I preferred to withdraw from the administration of Les Trois Mousquetaires because I no longer met the challenges of the job.”
Owner Vicky Ouellet is quoted as saying that LTM thanks Lafortune for his past work, and that the brewery will continue to produce beer to the same quality.
The article also notes that Lafortune’s departure comes as LTM is preparing to mark its 10th anniversary next year.
