(Fredericton, NB) - Picaroons Traditional Ales introduced Flood, Sweat and Tears IPA. This limited edition beer celebrates NB's resilience during the great flood of 2018. Picaroons says "Ringing in at 7% ABV, this one-off is a tad citrus-y from some orange peel additions as well as little fruity from their signature Ringwood yeast. It's a little hazy and is all wrapped up with a nice crisp and bitter finish". It's on sale now at The Picaroons Roundhouse and The Brewtique in Downtown Fredericton, and will be flowing out to the Picaroons General Store in Uptown Saint John, The 5 Kings Restaurant & Picaroons Brewhouse, and to ANBL locations throughout the rest of the province.
