BREWERIES

picaroons – amazing microbrewery in Fredericton NB. Big supporter of home brewing, many thanks to them. I have yet to make an English Ale like any of theirs, well…ok maybe I have.

big axe brewery –  small craft brewery located in Nackwic NB. It is also a B&B with a great view of the mighty Saint John River. You could just stay there and drink beer, how great is that?

grimross – Grimross is a small craft brewery located in Fredericton, New Brunswick. “When asked what type of beer we craft at Grimross, I usually describe our beer as Belgian. But this is really a gross oversimplification of both our beer and what Belgian beer is.”

trailway brewing co. – craft brewery in Fredericton that specializes in bold flavourful ales brewed in small batches.

propeller brewery – am a big fan of their Extra Special Bitter (ESB), India Pale Ale (IPA) and London Porter. You will usually find some of this in my fridge (and homebrew)…unless I have consumed them all.

pumphouse brewery – great micro brewery in Moncton NB. Their S.O.B. is outstanding.

garrison brewery – nice beer brewed here. I really like the IPA, but don’t drink to many.

allaghash – I was really not a big fan of Belgian beer until a trip to Portland Maine with a visit to the Allagash Brewery. I have been converted!!! All Hail Allagash!!!
