Surviving Rush members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson have teamed up with Toronto's award-winning Henderson Brewery for the new “Rush Canadian Golden Ale.” Back in 2016, the craft brewing company issued a “Put Your Scarf On Geddy” limited edition Canadian Imperial Stout, and was the natural choice for the band. The new line officially launches on August 30th.
According to the official announcement:
It started during Rush's 2015 R40 tour when, after a gig, someone handed frontman Geddy Lee a bottle of Robinson's 'Iron Maiden-Trooper' beer. Geddy took one look at it and jokingly asked where the Rush beer was. That quip stayed in the mind of the band, and recognizing the growing craft beer movement, particularly in their hometown of Toronto, the band decided to look into it seriously.
