The Globe & Mail reports that four breweries are expected to place bids to purchase Sleeman Breweries before a Sleeman-imposed deadline of the end of today. Bids are expected to be placed by domestic players Labatt and Molson Coors, as well as overseas brewers Grolsch and Sapporo, both of which currently have distribution deals with Sleeman. Sources say that Sleeman hopes to name the successful buyer by October.
