Cheers to new brewing exhibition at Guelph Civic Museum

Much anticipated exhibition, Brewing Changes Guelph opens at Guelph Civic Museum Saturday, September 15.

Guest curated by Eric Payseur, Brewing Changes Guelph examines 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.

This exhibition focuses 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. Brewing Changes Guelph is as much about the present and future of brewing in Guelph as it is about its illustrious past.

An opening reception will be held Friday, September 28 at 6:30 p.m., featuring JUNO Award nominee Don Amero.  Amero returns to the Civic Museum as part of the Fourth Friday concert series. From Winnipeg, Manitoba, he is a powerful stylist with silky vocals, a lovable stage presence, and a soulful sound. Admission to the Civic Museum on Fourth Fridays is free after 5 p.m.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street.
