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 Ryevalry Roggenbier by Mill Street Brewery at King & DufferinFruity esters and sweet malt dominate, with earthy/peppery rye providing a nice backnote. Hint of banana bread as well. Nicely done.
- Greg C. is drinking a Chocolate Cheesecake Milkshake Stout by Rochester Mills Beer Co. at King & DufferinThe flavour delivers what the name promises. And like most cheesecake it’s too sweet for me personally. But I can still see the attraction.
- Greg C. is drinking an Union Pearson Ale by Henderson Brewing Co at King & DufferinRecently reformulated & better for it. Strong citrus character, bit of pine, malt backnote. Reminds me of classic US IPAs & that’s good.
- Greg C. is drinking a Route 26 by Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen at King & DufferinVery nice roasty character, notes of cocoa and hazelnut, good hit of hops to balance. Glad a friend from the area passed this along to me.
- Greg C. is drinking a Bianca Mango Lassi Gose (6%) by Omnipollo at King & DufferinOn paper, this seems like a gimmick beer I should hate. In reality, it’s a delicious explosion of milky & slightly salty mango that I love.
