Toronto, Ontario – On Friday March 3rd, Henderson Brewing Co. will host a release party for their new Belgian Tripel style beer – ‘Rube Goldbeer’. The beer was made to go with the Rube Goldberg machine that Henderson has had up behind their bar since opening. This machine uses an overly complex number of steps to open and pour a beer.
Henderson has paired with a charitable partner, and collects donations when beers are opened in the machine. For $20 the machine is loaded with a bottle of Rube Goldbeer and set off on its 42 second operation, culminating in a glass of beer for the patron at the end. For each run of the machine, $10 is donated to Toronto Playgrounds House-league Baseball with the goal of raising money to install new lights at Christie Pits.
Toronto Playgrounds “TP” House-league Baseball promotes organized baseball in a safe, inclusive and supportive environment. With the goal of fostering goodwill and respect amongst players, umpires, and opponents. TP is a not for profit association serving the community surrounding Christie Pits an offers T-Ball, Rookie Ball, Mosquito, PeeWee and Bantam House-league baseball. In 2016 TP had 998 players registered, an increase from 750 in 2015. We are projecting close to 1200 registered players in 2017. TP provides on-field baseball on over 9 diamonds in the City of Toronto, and as a result of the growth, we require an investment in new lights on Diamond #3 at Chirstie Pits. Our Partnership with Henderson will help with our fundraising efforts for our new lights.
The launch is at 6:00pm, when representatives of Henderson and TP will run the Rube Goldbeer machine and everyone will get a taste of the fruits of their labour.
