TORONTO, ON – Henderson Brewing has announced details of the latest release in its Ides Series of monthly limited edition beers.
For the Ides of January, the brewery is offering The End of Honesty, a 5% abv “add-junk lager” named for the recently closed icon in Toronto’s retail history, Honest Ed’s, and the man who founded it:
The Ides of January is our tribute to the one and only Ed Mirvish. A man who built a landmark, rekindled Toronto’s theatre scene and gave away turkeys every year. The End of Honesty is meant to be a cheap and cheerful, basic beer. One that Ed himself may have stocked on his shelves. We called it an “add-junk” lager, because we used sugar, bought from Honest Ed’s, as an adjunct to the normal brewing ingredients. So every sip you take has a little bit of Honest Ed’s in it.
The End of Honesty was released last Friday January 20th at an event for monthly Ides series subscribers. It is now available in 4-packs of cans exclusively at the Henderson retail store while supplies last.
NOTE: An earlier version of this article stated that the beer is available on tap at Henderson and other select locations, but this is not the case – it is only available in cans. CBN apologizes for the mistake.
