Flying Boats was launched in 2015 by Marc Melanson as a 2-barrel nanobrewery based in his garage in Shediac, New Brunswick. The size and location meant that there was no public access to the brewery, and beers were only available on tap at local bars and restaurants.
Now located at 700 Malenfant Blvd. in Dieppe, the new Flying Boats facility features a 15-barrel brewhouse, and a taproom and retail store where visitors are able to try flights and pints on-site, and pick up growlers and cans to go. Two brands – Dixie Clipper IPA and Empress Irish Red Ale – are currently available in 473 ml cans, with several other beers pouring on tap.
Flying Boats Brewing held a soft opening this past weekend, and will be open from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Wednesday to Friday and 11:00 to 5:00 PM on Saturday starting this week. For more details, see the Flying Boats website and Facebook page.
- Greg C. is drinking a Haberdasher Hefeweizen by Muddy York Brewing Co. at Walrus Pub & Beer HallBanana marshmallow candy, lemon creme, clove. Properly pillowy body. A touch sweet, but bang on otherwise.
- Greg C. is drinking a Clutch by Redline Brewhouse at Reds Wine TavernSo good that I forgot to take a picture until I was almost finished.
- Greg C. is drinking a Turf War by Goose Island Brewhouse Toronto at King & Dufferininteresting interplay between the two Cascades - bright & citrusy from PNW, mellow & earthy from Ont. Adds up to a very nice pale ale.
- Greg C. is drinking a Midway IPA by Goose Island Beer Co. at Goose Island Brewhouse TorontoAt Goose Island dinner, paired with deep fried popcorn ice cream. Not a great pairing - beer is wiped by the busy flavours of the dish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Goose IPA by Goose Island Beer Co. at Goose Island Brewhouse TorontoAt Goose Island dinner, paired with lamb & pea gnocchi. Lamb brings out an interesting anise note in the beer. Otherwise, yup, it’s Goose.
