EDMUNDSTON, NB – Les Brasseurs du Petit-Sault, a new brewery in the small francophone city of Edmundston in north-western New Brunswick, has announced details of its first two beers that are expected to be released later this month.
Bob LeBoeuf Blonde Ale and Tante Blanche White Beer are both Belgian-inspired ales named after local legendary characters, as explained in a recent blog post on the brewery website:
Bob LeBoeuf was a bit of an excentric and a legendary prospector in Edmundston, who spent his life digging for precious metals in the mountains surrounding Edmundston. Tante (Aunt) Blanche saved her colony from a famine at the end of the 18th century by ordering that the rich should share with the poor in such desperate times and even delivered food to the poor in snowshoes.
Both beers will be available by the end of June in stubby bottles at select ANBL locations at the Petit-Sault brewtique, with growlers also planned to be available at the latter.
