SHEDIAC, NB – The Atlantic Canada Beer Blog reports a new nano-brewery that pays tribute to the historic transportation of the area is now open in Shediac, New Brunswick.
Flying Boats Brewing is named after the large seaplanes that stopped over in nearby Pointe-du-Chêne during trans-Atlantic flights in the 1930s and 40s.
The first two beers from the brewery are Picnic Train Witbier and Dixie Clipper IPA – the former taking its name from a train service that brought day-trippers from Moncton to Pointe-du-Chene in the early 20th century, and the latter named in honour of one of the seaplanes that flew the early flights from New York to Europe, with stops in Shediac Bay.
Picnic Train is currently on tap at La Coast Restaurant et Bar and Auberge Gabrièle Inn, both in Shediac, and Dixie Clipper is expected to be released soon. Both beers will also be available along with two others at the Tasting NB event taking place in Fredericton this Saturday.

- Greg C. is drinking a Porch Pirate by Big Rock Brewery at Liberty Commons at Big Rock BreweryNot as big & juicy as most NEIPAs, but still sufficiently tropical with good balance. Sometimes a bit of subtlety is appreciated.
- Greg C. is drinking a Monogamy (HBC 522) by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinCitrus notes up front, herbal backnote with odd hint of cherry candy. An interesting hop strain, hope to try more beers brewed with it.
- Greg C. is drinking a Monogamy (Sasquatch) by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinI feel like a bad Canadian beer fan for saying it but I don’t find that Sasquatch hops work well in single hop beers. Too earthy, I think.
- Greg C. is drinking a Double Jutsu by Bellwoods Brewery at King & Dufferin5 day old can & the best this beer has ever been. Big, bright aroma & flavour of orange & apricot & a bit of mango. Long finish. Delish!
- Greg C. is drinking an Epiphany No. 1 by Black Oak Brewing Company at King & Dufferin4.5 years old, aged beautifully. Dark malt, dried cherry, raisin, port, light notes of oak & leather. Barely a hint of booze. Excellent!
