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 Hickson Porter Baltique by Brasserie Les 2 Frères at King & Dufferin2016 bottle. A bit oxidized but it works with the strong & malty beer. Dark caramel, coffee, burnt hazelnut, warm finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a 100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager by Mill Street Brewery at King & DufferinI agree with my assessment of the pre-organic version in Nov - it’s not as flavourful as in its early days. Perhaps even less so now.
- Greg C. is drinking a Bumo (Version IV) by Burdock at King & DufferinNotes of red wine, cherry wood, fruit gums, elegant funk. Pretty special stuff.
- Greg C. is drinking a Peach Uber by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & DufferinMy lack of enthusiasm for peach beverages makes this my least favourite Uber. But that said, it’s still a very good sour. Just not my thing.
- Greg C. is drinking a Shirley Street Sorbet Sour by Lot 30 Brewers at King & DufferinUsually not a fan of the strawberry-kiwi combo, but it works very well here. Vanilla also gives a nice balance to the lemony sourness.
