BERTRAND, NB – A new nanobrewery run by a trio of friends and homebrewers is now open on a campsite in Bertrand, a small village on New Brunswick’s Acadian Peninsula.
As reported by Maritime Beer Report, Brasserie Retro Brewing has been founded by Yves Godin, Joel Thibodeau, and Maxime Hebert, and is located on the site of Motel and Campground Colibri.
Open since late July, Retro is brewing three flagship brands – Tapisserie Laide (Ugly Wallpaper) Pale Ale (4% abv), Tricycle Rouge (Red Tricycle) Amber Ale (6% abv), and Arcade 2001 IPA (7% abv) – and a variety of one-offs on a 200-litre brewing system.
Retro beers are currently available exclusively in cans and growlers at the brewery, with distribution to local bars and restaurants to follow in the autumn.
Brasserie Retro Brewing is located at 913 Boulevard des Acadiens in Bertrand, and is open from 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM Monday to Saturday and 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM Sunday during camping season. For more details, see the full Maritime Beer Report profile, and the brewery’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
