SHEDIAC, NB – The Atlantic Canada Beer Blog reports a new nano-brewery that pays tribute to the historic transportation of the area is now open in Shediac, New Brunswick.
Flying Boats Brewing is named after the large seaplanes that stopped over in nearby Pointe-du-Chêne during trans-Atlantic flights in the 1930s and 40s.
The first two beers from the brewery are Picnic Train Witbier and Dixie Clipper IPA – the former taking its name from a train service that brought day-trippers from Moncton to Pointe-du-Chene in the early 20th century, and the latter named in honour of one of the seaplanes that flew the early flights from New York to Europe, with stops in Shediac Bay.
Picnic Train is currently on tap at La Coast Restaurant et Bar and Auberge Gabrièle Inn, both in Shediac, and Dixie Clipper is expected to be released soon. Both beers will also be available along with two others at the Tasting NB event taking place in Fredericton this Saturday.

- Greg C. is drinking a Mystery Beer B by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & DufferinStarts with sweet grapefruit, progresses through apricot, key lime, and creamsicle as the glass empties. Pleasantly soft on the palate.
- Greg C. is drinking a Mystery Beer A by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & DufferinRespectable pub stout with notes of roast malt, cocoa powder, subtle coffee, woody hops. Medium bodied with a dry finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Duchesse de Bourgogne by Brouwerij Verhaeghe at King & DufferinBeen a while since I’ve had one & I recall it having more prominent acidity. Still nice, with notes of port, cherry, wood, leather, plum.
