Heineken to close Canadian brewery

Heineken NV announced plans to close its Amstel Brewery in Hamilton, Ontario, on September 20 because the brewery's production results have failed to meet expectations.

"The economic recession in Canada and the stagnating beer market do not offer a prospect of improvement," a company spokesperson reported.

The brewery's approximately 94 employees will be laid off as a result of the plant's shut-down.

Amstel and Amstel Light beers that are being brewed at the Canadian facility will now be exported to Ontario from the company's Netherlands brewery.
