Guelph Alumni Weekend

This is a purely selfish, narcissistic, self-indulgent post. I know this. I'm okay with this. 
You've been warned.

The other weekend my alma mater had a reunion weekend for its Alumni. There were special events planned for the whole weekend, what interested me most was taking part in the Guelph Race and Craft Beer Tasting.

I found out this weekend that it's been 10 years since I graduated from my undergrad here and just as long since I had last had a proper visit of the campus. #foreveragryphon.

We ran around campus completing a scavenger hunt and checking out what had changed and what had comfortingly stayed the same.

The day ended with a nice dinner from a restaurant downtown which cooked pizza in wood burning ovens and served them on white linen clad tables. You know, a place we could never have afforded back in uni days.

I certainly had fun at this event. Please enjoy a few photos I took on the day exploring my old home away from home.

It was called The Keg in my day, not because the name has changed but rather because of a cartoon of a man wearing a keg at the entrance.


  1. yay Guelph! That looks like such a fun day. Is that Gryphon lager any good? I am loving all the craft beer around here!

  2. It was okay. I'm not a huge fan of beer in general and it was very beer like. I did enjoy some of the lighter craft beers on offer at the tasting and then I found the cider guy and I was done for the night. Strangely enough, I can't remember what it was called.


Let's discuss!
