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 Metaxis: Apricot by Folly Brewpub at King & DufferinStarts with some subtle complexity, nice combo of mellow brett & apricot, then BOOM! super-sharp sourness through the middle & finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Dry-Hopped Sour by Side Launch Brewing at King & DufferinA somewhat unexpected style from SL, but a nice example of it. More restrained than Jelly King & others, but clean and refreshing tartness.
- Greg C. is drinking a Lot 9 Traditional Pilsner by Creemore Springs at King & DufferinThe malt is a bit too sweet & the hops don’t pop enough to totally hit the mark. But it’s still a well made and enjoyable lager.
- Greg C. is drinking a Racing the Sunset by Eastbound Brewing Co. at King & DufferinWell-made witbier that hits the right aroma & flavour notes for the style, with perhaps a touch more citrus than usual, but no complaints.
- Greg C. is drinking a Serendipitous Sour by People's Pint Brewing Company at King & DufferinGood kettle sour flavour, nice level of dry hopping, would just prefer more crispness and brightness in the body.
