Goodbye Marvin!

August 31, 2021

marvin-leavingAfter over 18 years with us, Marvin will be moving on to a new adventure at the end of August. With all of our hearts, we’re wishing Marvin and his family all the best in their next journey!
Many of you folks know Marvin, maybe you’ve seen him speaking at an event or beer dinner, perhaps he’s given you a tour of our brewery, or maybe you’ve been lucky enough to work with him over the years. Marvin’s genuine warmth, enthusiasm, and passion for sharing knowledge have made him a well-known figure in the Ontario craft beer scene. And not to mention that beard, I mean who could forget that beard?
Marvin got his start on the packaging line in the early 2000’s and over the years through his hard work, background in microbiology, and passion for knowledge, he worked his way to leading our brewing and quality programs. In recent years, Marvin has helped our brewery take major steps forward in helping promote sustainability and circularity in our brewing operations, improving our quality control programs, and helping support our talented brew team. In so many ways Marvin’s leadership and creativity have helped shape our brewery and bring us to where we are today.
As we move ahead, Marvin will maintain a close relationship with our brewery as he moves onto a new opportunity at a smaller Ontario brewery. Marvin will continue working with us in an advisory role assisting with long-term sustainability projects and climate change initiatives. Our talented and experienced production team will be moving into new roles with our small-batch brewer Jeff Wilson assuming the role of head brewer. While we’re all going to miss Marvin around the brewery, we’re excited for what’s next for our brewery and what’s next for Marvin and his family as they embark on a new journey.
Thanks for everything Marvin, with love from everyone at Wellington, we’re wishing you all the best!
