NEW BRUNSWICK & QUEBEC – This year sees the 170th anniversary of Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie, an epic poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow set during the expulsion of the Acadians, and to mark the occasion, a number of breweries in the region once known as Acadia – plus one in the area where the Acadians settled – have released special beers to mark the occasion.
Inspiration for the project came from the following lines in the poem:
Then Evangeline lighted the brazen lamp on the table,
Filled, till it overflowed, the pewter tankard with home-brewed
Nut-brown ale, that was famed for its strength in the village of Grand-Pré
Following this lead, breweries in New Brunswick (Acadie-Broue, Brasseux d’la Côte, CAVOK Brewing, Distillerie Fils du Roy, Flying Boats Brewing, Les Brasseurs du Petit-Sault, Savoie’s Brewhouse), Quebec (À l’abri de la Tempête, Microbrasserie le Naufrageur), and Louisiana (Cajun Brewing) have each brewed their version of an Acadian or Cajun Nut-Brown Ale.

- Greg C. is drinking a Mind On My Honey by Siren Craft Brew at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. Honey & smoky chilies in an Imperial stout sounds like a train wreck but this beer pulls it off beautifully.
- Greg C. is drinking a Proto 31: Imp Stout W. Cardamon & Tonka Beans by Brewski at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. A whole helluva a lot of cardamom up in here. That’s ok, I like that. Drinks frighteningly easy for its abv.
- Greg C. is drinking a Peanut Butter Jenkins by Thin Man Brewery at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. Full disclosure: I’m good friends with the brewer. But it’s still a big, tasty, chocolatey, peanuty stout.
- Greg C. is drinking an All Citra Everything by Other Half Brewing Co. at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. Yup, that’s a lotta Citra. Thick & deep & dank. Not something I want everyday but great for the style.
- Greg C. is drinking a Holz Pils by Four Winds Brewing at Collective Arts BrewingAt Liquid Art Fest. A beautiful and well-rounded Pils. The herbal hops are especially lovely. And look at that lacing!
