(Fredericton, NB) - Picaroons Traditional Ales have released the 14th iteration of their Pivot series. This time they moved away from the big bang tropical and citrus hops and ventured into a melon territory using only two hops: Ekaunot and Huell Melon. Upfront there is a pleasant mild bitterness from the Ekaunot, followed by some honey dew, berry, and grassy notes before it winds down with a medium dry finish.

(Halifax, NS) - Stillwell Brewing will says to come by the brewery this Saturday, April 14th between 12:00  and 3:00 PM and Sunday between 12:00 and 3:00 PM for the release of GLOU.
Glou is a blend of barrel-aged saison and a sour foeder-aged beer, that were both brewed back in May 2017, to which Stillwell added New York muscat grape skins from Blomidon Estate Winery from near Canning, in Annapolis Valley for re-fermentation in oak. They say "Inspired by skin-contact wines, this beer is hugely aromatic, floral, woodsy & bright, with great acidity and tannic structure, and is, as we aim for all of our beers, complex yet highly drinkable".
Stillwell Brewing is in the red warehouse behind Propeller/Staples/7 Bays on Gottingen St.
