Guelph Black Heritage Society Collaboration

February is Black History Month. To honour this, we have paired up with Guelph Black Heritage Society the last 3 years to produce Lantern Ale. A portion of all sales from this product go directly to the society and the initiatives they are pursuing. Guelph Black Heritage Society strives to create a cultural, historical and social community center within Guelph and Wellington County at Heritage Hall.
The 1880 building that Guelph Black Heritage Society has been working out of since 2012 is a former British Methodist Episcopal Church which had ties to the Underground Railroad. At that time, the lantern was a symbol of hope and safety, guiding people to freedom. It is believed that a lantern placed in the window of a home was used as a sign to identify a safe house along the underground railroad. With help from our talented designer, Cai Sepuis, we’ve created a label that tells the story behind the lantern.

Lantern Ale is a 5% ABV, unfiltered blond ale. It is light, refreshing and approachable. This brew has a bit more malt-backbone than a lager, offering a roasted, bready character. It has notes of grassy, herbal hops but the bready malt background balances the slight hop-bitterness. This beer is easy-drinking and has a very prompt finish.   

Lantern Ale will be available in The Ward Room and participating local bars and restaurants during the month of February each year.
