News bootIt is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Douglas Dawkins on Saturday June 11th unexpectedly at his home in Hamilton. Doug started at the brewery in 1990 on the bottling line and over the years worked his way up to President of Wellington Brewery. His passion, kindness, and generosity have been an inspiration to everyone who has known him. We simply cannot put into words the extreme loss and heartache we all feel. He was a dear Father, Son, Brother, and friend to many. He will be missed.
