In honour of the 40th anniversary of Rush's eighth studio album, Moving Pictures, Henderson Brewing and Rush have teamed up once again. This time, for a very special limited edition ale - only 1600 cases are being released.
A Belgian Dark, strong ale with Riesling Must, this ale pours a gorgeous deep, ruby colour with a fine, tan head. The taste is complex, with notes of dark fruit pudding, toffee, dates, cherries, honey, bread crusts and a slight booziness.
Perfect for aging, this 14% limited edition ale makes a great holiday gift.

Back in February, North American syndicated rock radio show and website, InTheStudio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands, celebrated the 40th anniversary of the classic Rush album, Moving Pictures.
Says Host Redbeard: "Moving Pictures, Top Three seller on Billboard‘s album chart, with ditto in the UK... combining for just shy of 5,000,000 copies sold in America alone. Regardless of those admittedly impressive numbers surrounding Rush‘s eighth studio album released February 1981, they don’t begin to convey this album’s importance to the band’s long career, nor to rock music itself. “Music was changing,” Rush lead singer/composer Geddy Lee tells us in this In The Studio classic rock interview, and without Lee, guitarist/composer Alex Lifeson, and drummer/lyricist the late Neil Peart embracing the fresh musical ideas in the crosswinds of the early Eighties with songs 'Tom Sawyer', 'Red Barchetta', 'Limelight', 'Vital Signs', and 'Witch Hunt', it is doubtful that a path to mainstream success would have been cleared for later major bands including Metallica, Queensrÿche, Smashing Pumpkin’s Billy Corgan, Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters, Thom Morello with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, and Dream Theater.
"The combination of highly literate lyrics weaving tales both fantastic as well as personal, performed and arranged peerlessly in timeless fashion, all recorded and produced in a manner devoid of anachronism, allows me to comfortably predict that Moving Pictures will continue to impress and entertain well into the 21st century."
