FAQ & ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Is Wellington Brewery open for a sampling on Sunday if we are not a part of the Ale Trail? 

Yes we are open between 12pm and 5pm for anyone to stop by for a sampling. If you are not part of the Father's Day Ale Trail, the cost of the sampling is $5/person. We are also open for guided samplings as per normal on Saturday June 15th between 1pm and 4pm.

Can the whole family attend the event?

Yes! Anyone under 19 years of age does not have to pay admission. At Wellington Brewery on Sunday afternoon we will be offering complimentary soft drinks to anyone who isn't of age, or isn't drinking (or is the designated driver).

How does the bus work?

Buses will be leaving the Woolwich Arrow every 45 minutes. They will be dropping off patrons and immediately heading to the next location. The bus will loop around and return to your location 45 minutes later in order to take you to the next location. You can choose to catch the next bus if you would like to stay longer. The last bus will depart the Woolwich Arrow at 4pm, which will still ensure that you have enough time to tour both breweries.
