Grannan's Seafood is hosting a 6 course meal with Picaroons. Chef Johnny High will be serving up some great food complimented with Picaroons beer on May 24th. Make your reservations today by calling 506-634-1555.

Railcar Brewing has reached the litre production threshold that will allow them to offer growler fills from other breweries and their cans and bottles to go. They will have 6 in-house taps and 18 guest taps when they reopen in their new spot.

Savoie's Brewhouse will now be open on Saturdays to start from 1 PM to 6 PM at 6 Herons Nest Street, River Charlo. This week Sugarloaf Mountain Maple Amber, Herons Island Orange Wheat, Bon Ami Strawberry Wheat and Bullers Blueberry wheat are available as quantities last with the core brands available also.

Tide and Boar Gastropub obtained an Utopia, one of the most sought after beers in the world. they are going to sell off the bottle to 18 lucky customers. So here is how they are going to distribute it. On June 10th at 10:45 AM they will be passing out 18 tickets and at 11 AM the pub will open. Each customer can only have one ticket, each ticket is numbered and in order of who lined up first. That means if you want to guarantee yourself a spot line up nice an early. They will have an area for people to line up in front of the restaurant. The ticket gets you a 1 ounce pour of the Utopia for $11. Once the bottle is empty everyone who was able to get a ticket will be entered in a chance to win the empty bottle as a souvenir.

Trail Way Brewing continues to release beer at a feverish pace. El Generico is their new packaged kettle soured ale. This beer will constantly be changing so keep a look out for our most recent batch details. This first batch was heavily hopped with German super-hop Hallertau blanc and is a crushable 3.8% ABV. Sour, crisp, unique hop profile. Cans of this one are in the brewery now. 

A couple of events on the horizon in the Moncton area.
AMBER EFFECT, Mer et Soleil Fine Spirits and the Moncton Beer League are having a second Flights ‘n Bites: Whisky and Beer edition on Thursday, May 25th at Bistro 33, 1155 Shediac Road in Moncton. They will unlock a hidden realm of taste by skillfully pairing whisky, bourbon and scotch with carefully chosen craft beer. And if that wasn’t enough, each combination will also be accompanied by a delicious culinary concoction prepared by Chef Marc Surette. Beer will be served in a Belgian-style glass that you get to keep.
Amber Effect Events and the Moncton Beer League are also doing the next Urban Beer Hike on Saturday, June 17th hitting five beer bars downtown Moncton where you will sample craft beer and food along at each stop. Tickets are 49.00 plus fees.
