Wellington Brewery Takes Home 4 Medals at 2016 Ontario Brewing Awards

April 29, 2016

Ontario Brewing AwardsIt's been another big year for Wellington Brewery at the 2016 Ontario Brewing Awards. Wellington took home 4 medals across a variety of categories including one Gold Medal, one Silver Medal, and two Bronze Medals.

The 2016 Ontario Brewing Awards highlighted beer from over 112 breweries competing in 45 categories that were evaluated by a team of BJCP certified beer judges. Wellington won all 4 medals for unique small-batch beers from the Welly One-Off and Welly Re-Booted Series. 

The popular summertime favourite, Rhubarb Saison took home a Gold Medal in the Vegetable Beer category. The celebrated and much loved Terrestrial India Brown Ale took home a Bronze Medal in the Dark IPA category. Our notorious winter warmer, Yuletide Barley Wine won a Silver Medal in the Barley Wine category. And the all-new Welly One-Off Against the Currant took home a Bronze Medal in the Fruit Beer category. 

All of these small batch beers will be available at the brewery in the coming year. Terrestrial IBA is available now in tall cans at the brewery while supplies last. Rhubarb Saison will be available this summer at the brewery and on tap at select locations. Against The Currant - Blackcurrant Kettle Sour will be available in the LCBO in July, and a 2016 Vintage of Yuletide Barley Wine will be available later this year at the brewery. So keep an eye out for these award-winning beers!

Congratulations to our fellow Ontario Craft Brewer who also picked up awards this year. It’s incredible to live in a province with so many great breweries producing world glass beer. So let’s raise a glass and support your local Ontario craft brewers!
