John Labatt


John Labatt

John Labatt (11 December 1838 – 27 April 1915) was an Irish-Canadian businessman and brewer.

Labatt was born in Westminster Township, near London, Ontario, Upper Canada, and was the third son of John Kinder Labatt who came from Ireland and was the founder of the Labatt Brewing Company.

When the elder Labatt died in 1866, John assumed control of the company. Under his supervision, it grew to be the largest brewery in Canada. Following his death, the company was controlled by a trust operated by his nine children, although his sons John Sackville Labatt and Hugh Francis Labatt assumed managerial control.

Labatt died in 1915.
