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 191 Mӓrzen - Across the Nation by Red Racer at King & DufferinProperly malty with notes of breadcrust and caramel, herbal hops to balance. About 9 months from canning but it held up surprisingly well.
- Greg C. is drinking a Three Ring Circus by Block Three Brewing Co. at King & Dufferin3+ years old & showing its age so forgoing a rating to be fair. Seems like there’s probably a good beer behind the oxidization, though.
- Greg C. is drinking an Imagination Experiment Root Beer Stout by Dominion City Brewing Co. at Bar Hop BrewcoAroma & flavour are all about the root beer. Which is just fine for a root beer fanatic like me. Might be a bit much for others.
- Greg C. is drinking a Leave No Trace Pale Ale by Dominion City Brewing Co. at Bar Hop BrewcoHazy straw yellow. Light bodied, grainy character with top notes of citrus peel & green hop. “Crushable” I suppose but not much beyond that.
- Greg C. is drinking a Pineapple Tangerine Grapefruit Jelly King by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinBase beer is great as always, and the flavours promised on the label all come through, especially tangerine. The King never disappoints.
