GUELPH, ON – The Guelph Civic Museum has announced details of a new exhibit that explores the history of beer and brewing in the region.
Brewing Changes Guelph is described as an examination of “the social and economic importance of brewing beer in the Royal City and the changes brought about by the rise, fall and resurrection of Guelph breweries. Whether one has worked in the brewing industry or has never tasted beer before, visitors will learn how brewing has benefitted and continues to benefit our city.”
Running from September 15th 2018 to February 24th 2019 – with an official opening reception on Friday September 28th at 6:30 PM – the exhibition also promises to “focus on the impact of changes in production, transportation, marketing, gender and policy in Guelph, positioned within current brewing trends in Ontario, across Canada and around the world.”
In addition to the main exhibit, the museum will also be presenting several related tours and walks, including a Deja Brew Tour on October 10th, a Brewers & Innkeepers Cemetery Walk on October 13th, and a tour of the exhibit led by guest curator Eric Payseur on November 17th.
