Rube Goldberg was a cartoonist with a dream: to illustrate “deviously complex and impractical”machines that perform simple tasks.

Years later, inventor Jason Vincent dreamt of building his very own Rube Goldberg machine. Meanwhile, Jason’s half-brother Steve also had a dream: to one day open a brewery.

Today, each of their dreams have come true, thanks to the Rube Goldberg beer bottle-opening machine at Henderson Brewery in Toronto. It’ll open your beer bottle, but it sure ain’t simple!

This award-winning Belgian tripel is a lovingly-crafted traditional Belgian ale. It takes a long time to make it right. We hope you’ll agree it’s worth the wait.

This award-winning beer (OBA Silver 2017) was originally brewed to be opened by our in-house Rube Goldberg machine (ask your server for more information!).
