TORONTO, ON – Henderson Brewing has announced details of 55th release in its monthly Ides Series of limited edition beers, with this month’s instalment paying tribute to a legendary Toronto coffee house and music venue.

Riverboat Coffee Saison (5.6% abv) was brewed in collaboration with Ethica Coffee Roasters, and is described as “a fruity and light saison with notes of earthy and floral coffee beans.”

Its name has the following backstory:

This beer celebrates Toronto’s coffee scene, and one iconic coffee shop in particular – The Riverboat Coffee House in Yorkville (1964-1978). An intimate coffee lounge where on any given night you may catch Canadian music legends debuting new songs, writing, recording albums, or just jamming. We created two versions of the label – one with Joni Mitchell and the other Neil Young, both of whom had legendary performances at The Riverboat.

Riverboat Coffee Saison is available at the Henderson retail store and online shop while supplies last. Purchases of 8 cans or more will receive a free sample bag of the Henderson/Ethica partnership blend coffee.
