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 Strawberry & Basil Sour by Big Rock Brewery at King & DufferinA restrained sour with subtle notes of strawberry and basil. It’s tasty and pleasant, would just like a bit more of everything.
- Greg C. is drinking a Dysphoria by Goose Island Brewhouse Toronto at Goose Island Brewhouse TorontoBig, rich & complex - coffee, cocoa, roasted almond, sourdough rye, cola - but still clean & refreshing. The Baltic paradox.
- Greg C. is drinking a To Helles With It by Stone City Ales at Goose Island Brewhouse TorontoPretty much bang-on style. Maybe a touch too fruity? But very clean and balanced with neither malt nor hops dominating.
- Greg C. is drinking a Between the Pipes by Goose Island Brewhouse Toronto at Goose Island Brewhouse TorontoBetter than the growler I had a few months back. Quite German in style I’d say - lean body, strong herbal character, clean finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Nonbe by Godspeed Brewery at Goose Island Brewhouse TorontoElegant malt backbone, hint of blackcurrant, quickly arriving & lingering herbal hops to dry the end out. Good golly, this is lovely!
