Weddings at Steam Whistle

Weddings at Steam Whistle

Wedding Guests took home custom coasters, (pictured right) designed by the Bride and Groom: Sydnia & Mark celebrated their vows in Steam Whistle's event space last year and provided their guests with a unique, and appropriate, memento of the occasion. The coaster featured on one side a picture of the couple in 1997 when they met and on the other side a current photo. The Coasters were mailed out with thank you notes. To book your event in our space, visit our Events Info page.

"Hi there - I just had to let you know that since trying your beer at the Green Living show last year, I have become a regular Steam Whistle drinker and I am an extremely picky beer drinker. I am also impressed by how green the company is!! I have recently registered for the Ride To Conquer Cancer and I was soooo happy to see you are one of the sponsors!!! Keep up the great work!!!"
A devoted Steam Whistle fan, Rhonda B.

"My wife and I have been to your brewery a couple of times in the past. Steam Whistle was my choice beer even before it was cool :) I do believe in supporting the local little guy. Anyways we took a couple of newbies to Steam Whistle yesterday. Josh was our guide, and we had a blast. Our two friends could not believe how much fun and how hospitable Josh was during our visit. It was -25 and it was worth the walk (not from Guelph...from the parking lot)!! Thanks again and props to Josh to converting two more into drinking Steam Whistle."
Steve F, Guelph

Referring to our new webpage Steam Whistle Around the World, Pete Donegan from Liverpool, England writes, "may not have a photo of a bottle of Steam Whistle to send you, but your whistle recording is now my ring tone (drives my wife mad). Keep on brewing your excellent product."
