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 Venskab by Beau's All Natural Brewing Company at King & DufferinClose to 7 years old but still in great condition. Well carbonated, notes of pineapple and oaked white wine, dry & peppery finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Wiseman’s Weizenbock by Mill Street Brewery at King & DufferinUpfront malty sweetness, notes of banana bread & raisin & cocoa & dried cherry, medium bodied, hint of booze. Well made & right on style.
- Greg C. is drinking a Heir Apparent by Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery at King & DufferinPepper beers aren’t usually my thing but this is an exception. Great balance to all the flavours and abv is not obvious at all. Impressive!
- Greg C. is drinking a Tripel Thread by Kensington Brewing Company at King & Dufferin11 months old. I tend to prefer my Tripels on the drier side, but this is still a pretty good one. Tart gooseberry notes cut the sweetness.
- Greg C. is drinking a Monogamy (Callista) by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinNot very familiar with Callista hops but they work well here, bringing notes of apricot, gooseberry, blueberry & a slight floral edge.
