 Upper Canada

 The Bar Towel - Upper Canada Brewing Co.
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.

 Upper Canada - Canadian Confederation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Upper Canada, the precursor of modern-day Ontario, was created by the Constitutional Act of 1791, which divided the former Province of Quebec into two parts: Upper Canada and Lower Canada.
The terms "Upper Canada" and "Lower Canada," in the Canadian historical context, therefore refer to the period between 1791 and 1841.
It was thus not surprising that Upper Canada should welcome the report, while it met with an angry outcry by the French-speaking population, primarily in Lower Canada.

 Rebellion of 1837-39 in Canada (upper Canada)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
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.
The upper half is blue with two white stars, representing the "republics" of Upper and Lower Canada (they were actually colonies, since the rebellions were crushed).
In Upper Canada, at least, it was the Radicals and not the Reformers who were behind the violence in 1837, and they never amounted to more than about a thousand people within a population of about a half-million.
