Wellington Brewery is Canada's oldest independently owned microbrewery. Based in Guelph, Ontario, we craft our award-winning beers in small batches using the freshest all-natural ingredients. Since 1985, we've been a pioneer in the craft brewing scene by producing timeless, traditional style ales as well as experimenting with new recipes as part of our Welly One-Off Series.
