Junction Craft Brewing has been operating out of Guelph’s Wellington Brewery for just over a year, but last Thursday the brewery finally brought its, ahem, craft to the Junction, opening a tap room and retail store and firing up its three-hectolitre micro-brewing operation. Retail hours are still limited—it’s only open from 4 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and from 1 to 9 p.m. on Saturdays—but president Tom Paterson told us that should change once they staff up. There are six brews on tap to sample (their licence allows them to serve 12-ounce  pours until 9 p.m.), and the whole 11-strong line is available to take home in two-litre growlers, with 500 ml bottles available in January.

Three new beers, English Brown Ale, Extra Pale Ale and the cold weather-appropriate Station Master Stout, were released at the opening, and will continue to be brewed on site; Junction’s flagship Conductor’s Ale will continue to be brewed at both Wellington and the new digs to meet demand. Next up: barrel fermentation and a small snack menu paired with the beers, both of which Junction hopes to have ready in January. With Indie Ale House and now Junction Craft Brewing up and running, memories of the area’s dry past are becoming ever more distant.
