Well organised visit part of a birthday surprise weekend. Experinced a tasting of all the beers available under the craft lable. Recommend the Wellington Dark as the most flavourfull. Only disappointment was the lack of my size in the tee shirts for sale.

I visited the brewery just to sample and buy some of the small-batch supPORTER. I've been a big fan of the County Dark Ale for a couple years now, and picked up some of those too. I packed the supPORTER and the County Dark's in my luggage as part of my relocation back to Vancouver; the beer is that good.... More

What's lively brewery! Lovely selection, informative staff, great value. Saturday's between 1-4 you take a lovely tour. As part of this, you get to enjoy 6 samples of the fantastic craft brew and you get to choose one pint of your favourite! For $5 this is a steal!

Just passing by an stopped for the tour - Saturdays from 1-4 It's good value for $5 pp and includes 6 tastings of all their beers (1/4 glass) and one full pint of your choice. And a tour.

Wellington brewery were the ones to crack the Brewer's Retail monopoly 20 years or more ago and have kept up the good work with both excellent bottled and draught beer and, their specialty, Real Ales. The Brewery is small and holds events and tours but the piece-de-resistance is the Arkell Best Bitter real ale. It is an english style pumped... More

If you happen to be in Guelph, Wellington Brewery is a must. I live here, and my husband and I regularly go for fun events (tastings of new beers, tours, customer appreciation days). We highly recommend this place - the staff are great and the tours are informative. The beer is awesome. Even if you can't take a tour, stop... More

Show up Saturday between 1 and 4 and join the informal tour. You pay $5, which allows you to try all of their taps. You also get a plastic Welly mug to enjoy your favorite brew, not to mention the tour.

Wellington Brewery is known for its interpretations of traditional English ales. They are one of the few Ontario breweries to offer "real ales", that is, cask conditioned ales. My favourites are Arkell Bitter and County Dark, but all of their beers are worth drinking. They even do a very good lager, Trailhead lager. The best time to visit is for... More

We stopped off at the brewery as the road sign mentioned tours on Saturdays. They gladly welcomed us in with a younger child and offered our son gingerale as we sampled many beers they produce. The tour guides were very hospitable and knowlageable of the beers brewed on site. Many people came in with young children and it was a... More
