Nestled between the bluffs and lakes on Hwy 61 in Winona, Minnesota is where you will find this unique and local favorite brewpub and bowling alley. The vision became a reality in 1961 when the founder, Paul Wellington Gardner built Westgate Bowl, a 16 lane center which today continues to flourish.

In 1988, the vision continued with Paul’s family opening a Pub and Grill naming the establishment after their founder, Paul Wellington. “Wellington’s Pub and Grill”, which is attached to the bowling alley, quickly became a local favorite with its juicy burgers, smoked ribs, award winning chili, and outstanding menu. You will be sure to find your favorite sporting event on any of the state-of-the-art TVs.

In 1995, another vision became a reality with the addition of Wellington’s “Backwater Brewing Company” which until recently was Located within Wellington’s. Backwater Brewing Company recently expanded, was renamed Wenona Brewing Company, and moved just a few miles away. This is the only brewery in Winona with the next closest brewery 30 miles away in La Crosse, WI.
