Brewing Changes Guelph Exhibition – Guelph Civic Museum – Opening Mid-September 2018

Calling All Collectors of
Guelph & Area Brewery Artifacts!
I am the Guest Curator for the upcoming “Brewing Changes Guelph” Exhibition at the Guelph Civic Museum opening in mid-September 2018.
I am looking for objects from Thomas Holliday’s brewery (except bottles and labels); items from any of the short-lived breweries in Guelph; a few more (Wellington-Waterloo Counties) Ale Trail items; any original British CAMRA items from the 1970s, and any memorabilia from the 1995 Canadian Brewerianist convention in Guelph, Ontario.
Please contact the email address below if you have any items that you may be interested in loaning for the exhibition.
Thank you in advance for your support.

  1. Hello Eric. I think you have hit the jackpot. I am the owner of the date stone for the former T. Holliday Brewery in Guelph. My late husband, Robert Johnston, purchased the stone from the contractor who demolished the brewery, I believe.
    My husband was working on the conversion of the old shell of the former Inglis building on Arthur St.into townhouses at the time. It has been stored inside part of our wood-working shop here in Paisley ever since. Bob and I both grew up in Guelph and moved to Paisley in 1976. I will send you a photo of the stone tomorrow. It just so happens that I am looking for a new home for the stone and would love for it to go where it will be appreciated. Awaiting your response.
