A new way to explore Guelph’s Beer scene | Guelph.Beer Bus

The Guelph.Beer Bus made its inaugural run this past Saturday May 11th. This city bus takes you across the city of Guelph to responsibly taste and learn all about Guelph’s craft beer scene with six stops, including five breweries and a pub. This FREE hop on hop off shuttle is a collaboration between Guelph Transit and Guelph.Beer, which is a unique association open to all commercial brewers in Guelph committed to working together to celebrate and promote Guelph’s unique culture.

With the addition of this bus your brewery adventures this summer just got a whole lot easier.

Guelph is home to some of Ontario’s oldest breweries and the craft beer boom has lead to more great additions. Each stop on the route offers a unique experience alongside the same cool vibe Guelph offers as a city.

The first shuttle loads up at Brothers Brewing at 12pm and heads to Fixed Gear. Since it’s a hop on hop off style shuttle you can choose where to start, finish and who you want to visit along the way and for how long. Breweries involved are Brothers Brewing, Fixed Gear Brewing Co, Wellington Brewery, Sleeman Brewery, Royal City Brewing Co and Fat Duck Pub for food. You can see the bus schedule and dates offered HERE and pretty much count on a bus coming by every half hour for you to choose when to move to the next destination.

You are welcomed by the Bus Monitor as you climb aboard, just like in grade school but these ones know ALL about beer and are happy to chat beer, quiz you for prizes and answer any questions. Be sure to get a handy schedule from them to follow along as the days goes by.
