is a partnership focused on nurturing and growing Guelph’s exceptional beer culture by furthering beer education, promoting collaboration, and building Guelph’s reputation as a world-class brewing centre and beer destination.


The Guelph.Beer Bus is back this fall on Saturday October 19th and Saturday November 16th. On these special Saturday dates, we’ll be providing free bus transportation to each of Guelph’s brewers, giving guests the opportunity to responsibly explore Guelph’s vibrant local beer culture.

For the fall dates we’ve made some changes by adding another bus, increasing the frequency of the runs, and adding a few new stops including Fixed Gear’s new location on Elmira Road. Bus transportation will be provided by Guelph Transit charter buses which will provide event attendees with a safe and convenient ride. We’ll be accepting donations on the October Guelph.Beer Bus to support ARCH Guelph. Hope to see you on the bus!

The Guelph.Beer Bus is free but please consider making a charitable donation into the fare box when you get on the bus.

There is no need to try to visit every brewery in one day! There will be other Guelph.Beer Bus days and each brewery is open regularly.

It may be cold out, please dress accordingly.


is a unique association open to all commercial brewers in Guelph and current members include: Wellington Brewery, Fixed Gear Brewing, Sleeman Brewing, Brothers Brewing, and Royal City Brewing Co. Together we are committed to working together to celebrate and promote Guelph’s unique beer culture.

Our Community – We truly believe that Guelph is a special place to live. We are committed to enhancing and supporting our local community through engagement, dialogue, and by being active supporters of local community groups, initiatives, and charitable causes.

Cooperation – We will identify ways in which our breweries can work to together for the benefit of all members, the association, the industry, and the city of Guelph.

Inclusivity – Everyone has the right to enjoy the beer of their choice and neither people nor beer should be excluded from our community on the basis of their race, sexuality, gender, or beer style preference.

Responsibility – We believe that beer is best consumed in moderation, and in a responsible manner. With comprehensive public transit options in Guelph there should never be a need to drink and drive.

Conservation – As brewers we recognize that water is at the heart of what we do. We are committed to using water responsibly and finding new ways to promote water conservation and sustainability.

Beer – We love beer. We all make great beer, we all love drinking beer, and we want to work to foster that appreciation and enjoyment in others.
