COVID PROTOCOLS

Walks will follow public health guidelines as they change according to the Ontario provincial Roadmap to Reopening. To ensure your safety and that of our guides:  

  • Capacity will be limited to allow for physical distancing
  • Mask wearing is recommended where physical distancing is not possible
  • Guides will have voice amplification to assist with distanced hearing
  • Communications will be sent prior to your walk to advise of any protocol updates 
  • Self-assessment checklists will be provided in advance for registrants

*London Brewing is a local, co-operative, and organic craft brewery born in the heart of London's Old East Village in 2014. We do things very differently around here, and believe quality inputs create quality products. That's why we were the first Canadian Craft Malt Certified Brewery, and still brew with an average 38% local craft malts and 60% local organic hops. One of only a handful of Certified Organic craft breweries in Ontario, we strive to create a beer that is better for the people and planet that support it.
