Toronto brewer names beer in honour of Tragically Hip

After playing three sold out shows in Toronto, the Tragically Hip's cross-Canada Man Machine Poem tour will end in Kingston, Ontario this Saturday, August 20. Numerous bars and music venues will be live-streaming the concert, including Folly Brewpub at 928 College Street.

But along with broadcasting the show, Folly - which focuses on Belgian-style beer - just introduced a new, limited edition brew called Courage, named after a song from the Hip's 1992 album Fully Completely. According to a Folly Brewpub news release, Courage is a Saison made with rose hips. It isn't available in bottles so you'll need to pull up a seat at the brewpub to get a taste of it on tap.

Instead of selling tickets to Saturday night's screening, the brewpub will be accepting donations with all proceeds going to the Sunnybrook Foundation's Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research.

If you can't get into Folly, or one of the other bars showing the Kingston concert, you can see the whole thing at the CNE's Bandshell stage.
