Steam Whistle Brewing is buying Beau’s Brewing Co. as the company looks to take on Canada’s biggest beer brands and bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.

Beau’s shareholders voted Monday to accept the takeover offer.

The sale was endorsed by Beau’s co-founders Tim and Steve Beauchesne, who launched the company in 2006.

Steam Whistle co-founder and CEO Greg Taylor says the deal will set the business up for success in a post-COVID world.

The agreement comes after the two craft breweries began working together last year with a deal to sell and distribute their pooled portfolios in Ontario.
