Happy Guelph Pride 2021!
June 1, 2021
We're thrilled to be partnering up with Guelph Pride for our fourth year of support and collaboration, and happy to announce the release of the annual Guelph Pride Brew! Sunshine Raspberry Hibiscus Blonde Ale drops today, and this juicy ale is a refreshing summer brew, perfect for celebrating! It pours a delightful rosé colour, with hints of raspberry and lemon on the nose. Your first sip is a rainbow of sweet berries, gentle tart hibiscus with a subtly balanced hop finish. This bubbly brew is available for a limited time only, and with 50 cents from each can donated to Guelph Pride, you are supporting their efforts to provide programming, literature and resources for LGBTQ+ in our community.
On top of this fantastic beer release, Welly is offering two virtual events on the Pride 2021 schedule. Join in on Thursday, June 10 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. for Guelph Pride Beer 101! Learn from Welly's incredible beer folks, Brewer Robyn Weeks (She/Her), Poet and Beer Expert Truth Is... (She, They, He/Her, Them, Him) and Beer Educator Wilma Zondag (She/Her) as they lead you through an entertaining evening including how to properly taste a beer, fun beer facts, a history of beer styles and a virtual brew house tour. This event pack includes four fresh Welly brews, samples of malts and hops, sampling card and zoom link.
To add more excitement to the list of fun events, we are offering Pride Pairings; Beer, Cheese and Nuts, a tasty experience Pride-Goers and Supporters won't want to miss! Join Welly's own Cheese Queen, Jen Whyte (She/Her) and Beer Boss, Wilma Zondag (She/Her) on Saturday, June 12 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. to learn how to create the perfect palate-pleasing pairings with artisan cheeses and locally sourced roasted nuts.
