TORONTO, ON – Ben Johnson at BlogTO reports that after a year of being the only locally owned and brewed craft beer available at Toronto Blue Jays games, Steam Whistle Brewing has been told by Aramark Canada, foodservices company for the Rogers Centre, that their contract will not be renewed for the 2014 season.
This move means that the only beer available at Blue Jays games will be those from Labatt Breweries and partner brands in the AB InBev family, making the Rogers Centre the only stadium in Major League Baseball to not offer local craft beer to game attendees.
The BlogTO article notes that Steam Whistle has been gracious in their response to the move, thanking fans for their support last year and encouraging pre- and post-game visits to the brewery, which is located just across the street from Rogers Centre. They will also be holding Season Opener celebrations at the brewery on Friday April 4th to Sunday April 6th, as detailed on the Steam Whistle website.
