TORONTO, ON – Henderson Brewing has announced details of the latest in its Ides Series of monthly limited edition beers, with this month’s release paying tribute to short-lived Toronto sports team from the 1970s.
Toro Pilsner is a “simple Czech Pilsner” that takes its name from the Toronto Toros, a franchise in the World Hockey Association that played three seasons in Toronto, and featured several superstars of the game including Frank Mahovolich and Paul Henderson.
Toro Pilsner will be launched at Henderson on Friday January 19th at 6:00 PM, with samples of the beer to be offered to all in attendance, along with house-made caramel corn. Henderson co-owner Steve Himel will talk about the beer, and the brewery is “hopeful that we will be joined by a member of the team (or at least one of their kids).”
