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 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.
