Unibroue Chambly de Noire
From Unibroue – This dark ale was created in honor of the brave soldiers of the Carignan-Salières Regiment, with their famous black musketeer hats. In 1665, King Louis XIV sent the regiment to New France to defend against the Iroquois. He had a number of strategic forts, including Fort Chambly, built along the Richelieu River, ensuring peace and prosperity for the colony. Many French Canadians are the direct descendants of these intrepid forebears.
