The Introduction

Created to celebrate the University of Guelph’s 50th Anniversary, this crisp and refreshing craft-brewed lager is best paired with good times and great friends.

Highlighting iconic landmarks and symbols at the University, the can was designed to celebrate what it means to be a Gryphon – Past, Present, and Future.

Gryphon Gold is brewed locally at Guelph’s own Wellington Brewery using 100% Canadian Barley Malt and traditional Czech style Saaz Hops.  Like the mythical Gryphon with the body of a lion and wings of an eagle, this delicious lager is truly legendary.

Overall |   Go Gryphons! From Wellington Brewery, this is the Gryphon Gold Lager.

This beer was created to celebrate U of G’s 50th Anniversary in Guelph, ON.  Out of the bright yellow tallboy, it pours a hazy yellow with a white head that quickly dissipated.   The aroma is pretty simple for a lager: grains, corn, and subtle notes of citrus.   The flavours are the same as well.   Gryphon Gold Lager is a refreshing, smooth, and dull beer.   Let’s put it this way… It’s a lager, what more can you expect from that style? That said, it is better than Wellington’s Trailhead Vienna Lager. So if you like lager, you won’t be disappointed, but you won’t be impressed either.
