For the third year in a row, Wellington Brewery picked up medals at the U.S. Open Beer Championship this past weekend in Atlanta, Georgia.  

The U.S. Open Beer Championship is an international competition that included over 3,000 beers entered in 81 different categories. This year the competition featured more than 20 international breweries from Iceland, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Mexico, Brazil, Sweden, and England.

Wellington Brewery won two Silver Medals at this year's competition. County Dark Ale was awarded a Silver Medal in the 'Brown Ale' category and Iron Duke took home a Silver Medal in the 'Old Ale' category. 

Wellington brewmaster Marvin Dyck says, "it's incredible to have our beer recognized on an international level". 

Every year, Wellington Brewery continues to grow and reach new audiences with their award-winning line-up of beers. So far, 2014 has seen record sales and a rapidly expanding customer base for the Guelph, ON based brewery, founded in 1985. As Canada's Oldest Independently owned Craft Brewery, Wellington Brewery will mark 30 years of brewing in 2015.

County Dark Ale is available year-round at The Beer Store and LCBO locations across Ontario. Iron Duke is exclusively available at The Beer Store.
