A Father’s Day event at Railway City Brewing Co. featured a taste of today’s finest brews, a tour of the brewery and a trip back in time to learn about beer history in St. Thomas.

Many of the photos were courtesy of the Elgin County Archives extensive collection.
The talk and tour event was a fundraiser for Architectural Conservancy Ontario St. Thomas Elgin Branch.
