Wellington Brewery is one of Canada’s original craft breweries known for producing award-winning beers with a focus on quality, sustainability, and creativity. Founded in 1985 in Guelph, we are creatively transforming Ontario’s brewing culture to stand for people and planet. Join us and Try A Welly On!
Wellington Brewery honours First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people in our community with the terms they wish to be identified. As a brewery, our acknowledgement of the land is our responsibility to value and respect the land that many of our ingredients are grown upon as well as the water, plants, animals, and ancestors. We acknowledge the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabek Peoples, on whose ancestral and treaty lands we conduct business, teach, learn, and live. Wellington Brewery recognizes and supports the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, as we work to apply these recommendations to our work in the craft beer industry.
Since 1985, we’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of a thriving craft beer community in Ontario. At the heart of our success has been our commitment to the values that helped build our brewery and have helped us thrive:
Diversity & Inclusivity - We lead by example in helping build and promote a more inclusive and equitable craft beer industry that welcomes everyone.
Independence - We’re proud to be an independently owned brewery and we’re deeply connected to the community of beer lovers who’ve been with us over the years.
Sustainability & Climate - We stand for our planet through our approach to circular brewing, our sustainability initiatives, and climate projects.
Quality - As one of Canada’s original craft breweries, we know what goes into brewing consistent, high-quality beers made from the best ingredients possible.
Community - We’re committed to giving back and supporting charities and local community organizations that work to make our world a better place.
Creativity - Creativity is a driving force in everything we do, from beer recipes, to can artwork, to marketing materials, events, and everything in-between.
Beer Education - We’re beer people, and we want to share our love of craft beer and our knowledge through samplings and beer education.
