TORONTO, ON – Henderson Brewing has announced details of the latest in its Ides Series of monthly limited edition beers, which this month also serves as the second in its annual series of homebrewer collaborations.
The Henderson Cup is a yearly homebrewing competition sponsored by the brewery, with the winner receiving $1000 and the chance to brew a commercial beer with the Henderson team.
The winner of the latest competition was Mike Vandervoort, who designed a New England IPA described as follows:
This New England IPA is bursting with Citra, Mosaic, and Amarillo hop flavour & aroma, including notes of orange, grapefruit and tropical fruit. The beer has a nice malty body to support all that flavour, with plenty of oats for a creamy overall taste.
The Ides of February: The Henderson Cup 2018 will be released this Friday February 16th at the brewery, with a launch party starting featuring free beer samples and pulled pork sandwiches, a homebrew pop-up market, a home brewing demonstration, and more.
