Beer Description

Victory in 1783 brought great joy throughout the colonies, but there were also dark times ahead. Tired & angry Officers of the Continental Army grew restless as they awaited their hard-earned wages from our new Congress. A planned revolt was quashed by General George Washington, right here in Newburgh. This event became known as “The Newburgh Conspiracy”. That dark moment in Newburgh history inspired the naming of our Russian Imperial Stout. “The Newburgh Conspiracy” is as dark as the hearts of those erstwhile conspirators. Made from only the first runnings of 2 separate brews, it is extremely rich, high ABV, yet smooth and drinkable. Hints of licorice and dried fruits are evident from the enormous amount of roasted malts. The high alcohol is warming without overpowering, making this a tasty treat for the cold winter ahead. And at 11% abv, a pint or two of this would’ve surely put those angry officers at ease.
