The Oatmeal Stout is back and is named!

March 30, 2014

The Oatmeal Stout is back on tap tomorrow!  We are calling it  “McShane’s Oatmeal Stout”

Screen Shot 2014-03-30 at 6.52.03 PMJ. J. McShane came over from Ireland to help build the great embankment which turned out to be a big engineering challenge.  The goal was to build a 70 foot high embankment on top of Irondequoit Creek for the distance of a mile.  Think quicksand.  More can be read on the Perinton Historical Society’s web page.  Nice video at Low Bridge Productions.

Many locals were re-introduced to the Great Embankment when it flooded into Bushnell’s Basin and destroyed many homes in 1974 as DPW crews attempted to tunnel a sewer under the canal.

McShane’s oatmeal stout, like the canal, is neither one dimensional nor overwhelming so come on in and try it. Let us know what you think!
