Guest lecturer talks history of Labatt’s Brewing

Author and scholar Matthew Bellamy chats with third-year History student Cody Smith while autographing a copy of his book Thursday, Nov. 21. Bellamy, an Associate Professor of History at Carleton University, was at Brock to talk about the history of Labatt’s Brewing and to launch his latest book, “Brewed in the North: A History of Labatt’s” (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2019). His talk explored how entrepreneurship and bootlegging allowed Labatt’s to survive Prohibition and he answered student questions about the research process. The event was hosted by the Centre for Canadian Studies and co-sponsored by Goodman School of Business. Autographed copies of the book are available in the Campus Store.
