MONCTON, NB – The Atlantic Canada Beer Blog reports that one of top restaurants and craft beer bars in Atlantic Canada has announced the release of the first beers from its new on-site nanobrewery.
Chad Steeves, the co-owner of Moncton’s Tide & Boar Gastropub and a long-time homebrewer, has launched Tide & Boar Brewing on a 120 litre system along with seven 170 litre fermenters, and promises that a constant rotation of house beers will be available at the popular taproom in downtown Moncton
The first beers went on tap last week, and Steeves describes the recent and upcoming offerings as follows:
I’m planning on selling more “series of beers”, with a lot of them being focused on different hops and malt blends. All hazy and unfiltered of course! In the Hoppy IPA vein, we started with the 5.9% ABV Centennial/Simcoe/Citra (that sold out right away), and are currently serving Apollo (which in addition to the eponymous hop, also features Amarillo, Citra, and Pacific Gem) and a Fresh Hop Pale Ale, also 5.9% ABV, featuring local Cascade and Willamette. We also currently offer a kettle sour series we’re calling Sour Otis; this sub-5% ABV beer will be infused with whatever blend of in-season fruit or berries we can get. So far we have done a Wild Raspberry Hibiscus (that’s already sold out), and on now is the Blueberry Basil; up next we have a Field Grape & Lemon Zest, with even more to come.
