Ravinder Minhas leaving beer biz for cannabis

The brother and sister duo behind the Minhas Brewery business are breaking up, with brother Ravinder Minhas selling his entire stake in the company to get into cannabis.

The split was announced in a release Wednesday morning.

“With the legalization of cannabis, Ravinder Minhas has decided to focus on new ventures in the cannabis industry and celebrity space,” it states. “These ventures will mainly be in Atlantic Canada and USA… Ravinder believes this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate and hopefully thrive in a new emerging multi-billion dollar industry.”

After selling all of his interest in Minhas Micro Brewery & Distillery to sister, Manjit (a star of CBC’s Dragon’s Den) is now the sole owner.
