THIRTY | A Welly Anniversary


THIRTY is a two-day cask beer festival celebrating Wellington Brewery’s 30th Anniversary. The festival will feature 30+ Welly One-Off Cask beers plus a selection of collaborations and guest casks from some of Ontario’s best craft brewers. The weekend will also feature delicious food vendors, live music, DJ’s, and performances. THIRTY happens September 26-27 at Wellington Brewery and will feature 3 sessions: Saturday 11am-4pm, Saturday 5pm-10pm, and Sunday 12pm-5pm.


A portion of the proceeds from THIRTY will go to support the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington.


What about the line-up?

THIRTY: Anniversary Cask Beer Festival will feature over 30 Welly One-Off cask beers as well as a selection of collaboration casks brewed with fellow Ontario Craft Brewers and friends of the brewery. The cask lineup will also feature a well-curated selection of guest casks from some of our fellow Ontario Craft Brewers.

Expect a wide selection of cask-conditioned beers with everything ranging from sour ales to English session ales to imperial stouts and IPA’s. This curated selection of beers will include something for everyone with plenty of exciting beers to sample at each session.

We will be aiming to announce a full cask list 1-2 weeks in advance of the festival.


It’s not just beer.  There will be food vendors and live music.  They’re working with the organizers at Hillside Festival, Guelph Jazz Festival, Riverfest Elora, and the Kazoo! Fest to co-present the live performances.

If you haven’t been to a Wellington Anniversary party, you’re missing out.  I went a couple of years ago and found it to be a fantastic time, enjoying all the one-offs that Wellington had.   I’m looking forward to this event and will be attending the first session on Saturday.  Look for a post elaborating on the event with pictures, line-up, and many many more.
