Toronto, Ontario – Henderson Brewing Company, in collaboration with The Martini Club, is thrilled to announce the launch of Canada’s first ever “cocktail beer,” the Old Fashioned Premium Rye Ale. The inaugural pouring takes place Thursday, March 23, at the Dominion Pub and Kitchen.
The Old Fashioned Premium Rye Ale is a carefully crafted ode to the classic Old Fashioned cocktail, paying homage with silky spiced rye, and hints of citrus and bitters, perfectly balanced with warm oaky notes.
“Developing a beer that tastes like such a well-known and iconic cocktail was a huge challenge,” said Mark Benzaquen, brewmaster at Henderson. “It was a six-month process, but we’re really happy with the final result.”
“The Old Fashioned Ale is the must-try beer of 2017,” said Michelle Hunt, co-founder of the Martini Club. “It’s complex and strong, unique, mystical, and utterly satisfying.”
Beginning March 24, Henderson’s Old Fashioned Premium Rye Ale will be available in bottles at LCBOs, bars and restaurants across teh GTA, as well as at Henderson Brewing in the Bottle Shop and on tap.
