Multiple Award Winner


GUELPH – A blind taste test in Canada’s most competitive beer market has voted three of Wellington Breweries beers as medal winners at the 5th annual Ontario Brewing Awards. The three awards are a GOLD Medal in the Bitter category for the Arkell Best Bitter (4%), a SILVER Medal in the Specialty category for the Iron Duke Strong Ale (6.5%), and a PEOPLE’S CHOICE award in the Pale Ale category for the Special Pale or S.P.A. as Guelphites like to call it.

The event is a lead-up to the Toronto Festival of Beer and included 57 brands of Ontario brewed beer in 15 different styles. “We are extremely proud to receive these three awards” says Wellington President and Head Brewer Michael Stirrup. “The timing of these awards could not be better as we head into a busy beer selling season”.

Wellington Brewery is Canada’s oldest independently owned micro brewery, celebrating twenty four years of brewing quality fresh local ales & lagers. Located in Guelph, Ontario, Wellington brews six brands including County Ale, Special Pale Ale, Trailhead Lager, Arkell Best Bitter, Iron Duke, and Imperial Stout. Wellington Beers can be found in over 650 pubs and restaurants, Beer Stores and LCBO outlets across Ontario.
