    Wellington County Brewery & Beer Store: finding the elusive Imperial Stout!

    a happy man finds his beer

    Guelph is home to Wellington County Brewery, perhaps the finest in all of Ontario. They specialize in real ales and many of their brews are offered at fine pubs on pull taps much as in the United Kingdom. The brewery has a great tasting room for groups and a good selection of their beers to go too.

    What to buy: One beer I had never been able to get my greedy hands (or lips) on was their wonderful Imperial Stout. It clocks in at 8% alcohol and has a rich deep complex palate with hints of bitter coffee. It is well worth seeking out and here is the place to find it.

    What to pay: Yikes, I cannot remember...besides, at that point, I would have paid anything! lol

    The lady and the gentleman in the pictures are invited by the Visitor Centre to work on their artifacts at the Centre so as as to showcase them or the visitors. However, in order to buy the same artifacts, one must go to a number of gift stores and 1st Nation stores all along the Highway 6 and at Little Tub Harbour.

    What to buy: Artifacts made by local artists. For example, the Passenger Pigeon being chiseled by the gentleman is worth in hundreds of dollars, since he is making it for last 90 days. Passenger Pigeons used to fly over North America in billions, but were hunted to extension by the settlers. The last one of them named Martha died in 1914 at Cincinnati Zoo.

    What to pay: The artifacts range in prices from less than $10 to over $1000.
