Wellington Brewery Takes Home Medals at U.S. Open Beer Championship

Guelph, ON

For the second year in a row, Wellington Brewery picked up medals at the U.S. Open Beer Championship this week in Atlanta, Georgia.

The U.S. Open Beer Championship is an international competition that included over 2,500 beers entered in 68 different categories. This year the competition featured more than 20 international breweries from Belgium, Germany, Mexico, Columbia, Sweden, Finland, England, and more.

Wellington Brewery won a total of 3 medals at this year's competition. Arkell Best Bitter was awarded a Silver Medal in the 'Bitter' category. After winning medals this year at both the Canadian Brewing Awards and Ontario Brewing Awards, Iron Duke took home a Bronze Medal in the 'Old Ale' category. Wellington's flagship brand, SPA won a Bronze Medal in the 'English Pale Ale' category.

Brent Davies, Vice-President of Wellington Brewery says, "We're honoured to have our beers recognized on an international level. These medals are a reflection of our dedication to brewing consistent, high quality craft beer". Every year, Wellington Brewery continues to grow and reach new audiences with their award-winning line-up of beers. So far, 2013 has seen record sales and a rapidly expanding customer base for the Guelph, ON based brewery, founded in 1985.

Arkell Best Bitter and SPA are available year-round at The Beer Store and LCBO locations across Ontario. Iron Duke is exclusively available at The Beer Store.
