Humber River beer launching in Toronto

Junction Craft Brewing is set to release a new beer this weekend in honour of the mighty Humber River in Toronto.

Humber River Pilsner, as its called, will be unveiled during a launch party on Saturday, July 7 at JCB's headquarters in the old Symes Road Destructor, which used to incinerate the city's garbage.

The brewery describes it as "a crisp 4.5%ABV 28 IBU - perfect for hot summer days" and notes on Instagram that it's being produced in collaboration with Lake Ontario Waterkeeper — a Canadian charity working to ensure that our water is clean enough for swimming, drinking and fishing.

A label on the can, designed by Matt James, shows a beautiful natural scene with reeds, trees, a bridge, a subway and, of course, some of the big beautiful fish Humber River is known for hosting every fall.
