Henderson Brewing Co.

Henderson Brewing company is an award winning, independent, neighbourhood brewery in downtown Toronto. Founded in 2014, Henderson is all about celebrating the stories and culture of our city through the beers we brew.

At Henderson, brewing is a graceful fusion of innovation, creativity and cultivated technique. We strive to create balanced and thoughtful beers that honour the traditional ways of the past but are not restricted to them. We want our beers to spark ideas, tell stories and most of all, be immensely refreshing and enjoyable.

Our flagship beer, Henderson's Best, is a modern interpretation of the beers first brewed in Toronto at the beginning of the 19th century. Our monthly 'Ides' series uses creative recipes to bring the history, characters and locations throughout the city to life.

Henderson Brewing was founded by three partners sharing a lifelong love of beer and brewing and over 70 years of combined experience in the busines

Henderson
Henderson's Best
Henderson's flagship, Henderson's Best, is a modern take on classic ESB - a refreshing ale with a mild floral nose and an ABV of 5.5%. To create this beer we tried to imagine the beer first brewed in Toronto at the beginning of the 19th century and how it would have changed and matured over the 215 years between then and now. That recipe, tweaked throughout 2015 became Henderson's Best and won an award at the 2016 Ontario Brewing Awards
Put Your Scarf On Geddy - Ides of November 2016
Put Your Scarf On Geddy - Ides of November 2016
We think of this story every time we put the summer clothes away and pull the scarves and hats out of storage ... Back in high school, there was a girl who claimed she was Geddy's cousin. According to her, Geddy's mother's thick Polish accent rounded off the corners of his more pedestrian 'real' name, Gary. The girl said she could remember hearing his mom call out "Put your scarf on, Geddy, or you'll catch cold!" Whether or not her story is true, his mom's advice is wisdom for the ages. This decidedly winter beer, like a big cozy scarf for your tummy, is a toast to Geddy's mom's good sense, and the desire we all share to not catch cold. This beer is brewed with rye which makes it dryer than typical beers of this style (and why we call it a Canadian imperial stout). The dry-hopping adds grass notes to the up-front chocolate and coffee taste. This beer is perfect for ageing.
Union Pearson Ale
Union Pearson Ale
Every six and a half minutes a train rumbles by the brewery on the Toronto West Railpath. The pleasant and soothing clickity-clack has been an ongoing theme since we starting building the brewery in the spring of 2015. While there are GO trains serving the GTA and VIA trains serving the whole country, it's the train that runs between Union Station and Pearson Airport that we see most often. Our UPA is a riff on the classic IPA with an ABV to match the time between trains. On tap and in cans at the brewery and around town.
