The 2SLGBTQI+ community should be recognized all year long, but June is a particularly special month to celebrate and acknowledge the strides and struggles that have come before now. It's also a time to look ahead with hope to creating a more safe and inclusive future for all. Insert RAINBOW SPARKLE CUPCAKES made with Welly's annual Pride brew; Sunshine Blonde Ale with Raspberry and Hibiscus! Now, let the celebration begin!

We asked our friend Megan Ferraro of Cellar Bakery to create a simple, fun, and tasty recipe using this highly anticipated beer, and the results were absolutely gorgeous.  The sweet and tart combination of this light ale adds another level of flavour to the vanilla cupcake batter. Make these flashy cakes for your Pride celebrations! These lil' darlings will be on sale at our Sunshine Pride beer release party happening on May 18th, 2023 in the Welly taproom.
