Upper Canada beers are currently brewed by Sleeman Breweries, but readers of the Bar Towel should know the history and impact of the formerly independent Upper Canada Brewing Company, its principles and what it stood for, before it assumed its present form as a segment of Sleeman's portfolio.
Upper Canada Brewing was founded in 1985 by Frank Heaps, and during its existence in Toronto produced some of the finest beers in the city.
Upper Canada will be remembered as a brewery that made fine beers, gave great tours, pulled plenty of free samples, provided kegs to the public, and did its best to convince Torontonians to taste styles outside of the uninteresting mass-brewed beers they grew up with.

He claims, "The real cause of the revolt, in which Mackenzie and his supporters had given their best, was a rebellion against the constitution by the ruling clique, a course of action in its essence worse than the consequent revolt against the Crown."

Kevin Harrington, president of ACV/CFA, informed me at NAVA 32 that it is a wide-spread mistake that the Upper Canada Reformist flag is all blue, coming from the fact that the flag kept in a museum is ripped and some people wrongly assumed that the lower half of the flag was all blue.

 Secure in Conscious Worth: Susanna Moodie and the Rebellion of 1837
During the period of the Rebellion in Upper Canada in late 1837 and early 1838, Susanna Moodie, writing from her backwoods home in Douro township, entered the conflict on the government side with her poetic calls to loyal men to quell the rebel forces.
Such poems, in Susanna's case, were characterized by apostrophes to abstract ideals which she associated with British history and tradition, such as liberty, freedom, courage, or to emblems of those ideals such as the wreath, the flag, the crown.
The rebellion gives her cause to assert that she possesses no "guilty soul," but is a "child of Britain" still.
