New Basin Stout

Building the New Basin Canal was a back-breaker. Between torrential downpours and rampant yellow fever, just surviving a day's work was license to hoist a pint or two. So to honor the tough-as-nails Irish immigrants who made it happen, 40 Arpent Brewing set out to brew a beer they might have enjoyed, dark as night with a touch of satisfying sweetness. That's the New Basin Stout, dedicated to what these men accomplished and the fat frog who watched it all go down.
