Carling is a brand of beer, as of 2013 owned by the Molson Coors Brewing Company. In South Africa it is distributed by SABMiller. The history of Carling dates back to 1818, when Thomas Carling, a farmer from the British county of Yorkshire, and his family settled in eastern Canada, at what is now the city of London, Ontario. He brewed an ale which became popular, and eventually took up brewing full-time. The first Carling brewery had two kettles, a horse to turn the grinding mill and six men to work on the mash tubs,and Carling sold his beer on the streets of London, Ontario from a wheelbarrow.
