Back in June we shared the news that global restaurateur HMSHost had partnered with Rush beer producers Henderson Brewing to bring a new Rush-themed specialty bar to Toronto Pearson International airport (aka YYZ) with the promise to open later this year. This morning Toronto Pearson Airport announced via social media that Henderson Brewery at YYZ is now open for business, and also included a short video (watch below) of Ged and Al sipping a couple of cold ones at the bar. From the post:

The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here!

We're excited to announce a one-of-a-kind brewery at Toronto Pearson in collaboration with @HendersonBrewing, @hmshost and the iconic rock band @Rush.

Inspired by 'YYZ', you'll get to savour the true spirit of Toronto before you jet off or when you arrive home.

We welcomed Geddy and Alex to celebrate the ultimate Rush fan's paradise at YYZ, where you can savour the iconic range of Henderson's Rush beers and immerse yourself in exclusive memorabilia and merchandise!

Visit @HendersonBrewing in Terminal 1 Arrivals, pre-security and open daily 9am to 11pm. Please enjoy responsibly.

Back in August of 2021 Rush teamed up with Henderson Brewing Company to release their first Rush-branded beer - Rush Canadian Golden Ale - and followed that up with Moving Pictures Ale later that year, Moving Pitchers beer last March, Signals 40th anniversary Belgian Ale last October, and Xanabrew which launched back in May. They've also teamed up on an entire line of Rush-branded merchandise which you can find in their online Rush store.
