Moosehead (Moosehead Breweries Limited) is Canada's oldest independent brewery, located in Saint John, New Brunswick. The brewery was founded in 1867 by Susannah Oland and is still operated by the Oland family, now in the sixth generation of ownership under Derek Oland. As Canada's three largest brewers (Labatt, Molson, and Sleeman) are now foreign-owned, Moosehead is now Canada's largest 100% Canadian brewery.

The Moosehead roster of beer consists of Moosehead Lager, Moosehead Light, Cracked Canoe, Alpine Lager, Alpine Light, Alpine Summit, Alpine Max, Moosehead Pale Ale, Clancy's Amber Ale, Moosehead Premium Dry Moosehead Dry Ice, and Moosehead Ginger Beer Cold Filtered Light by Moosehead. In 2003, Moosehead Lager won a Gold award at the World Beer Cup, and earned another at the prestigious Monde Selection.

Moosehead also produces under contract a number of international brands on behalf of four of the world's largest brewers. All brands of Moosehead have "Union Made" displayed on their labels, and in some cases, directly on the bottle.
