There will be a new microbrewery opening in Bathurst this coming winter. Four Rivers Brewing will be located on Murray Avenue in the former Toyota dealership building in November or December. The beer will be produced and brewed on site in a state of the art brew house and served in a newly built tasting room. The brewery is a family business formed by René Legacy, his two sons, Chris and Stephen, and his brother-in-law René Landry. The brewery and taproom hope to create about a dozen jobs when they open.

Picaroons Traditional Ales is part of  a Canada 150 collaboration project with some other breweries in Canada that they have a very special kinship with. That kinship being that they produce beer using traditional open fermentation and direct fire Peter Austin brewing systems. Along with Granite Brewery in Nova Scotia, Golden Lion Pub & Brewery in Quebec, Granite Brewery in Toronto, Ashton Brewing Company and Clock Tower Breweries in Ottawa, and Four Mile Brewing in BC, they brewed a coast to coast collaboration ale to celebrate Canada 150. The Fathers of Fermentation are calling their brew Sir John’s Special Eh’le.

Trailway Brewing released a fruit bomb this week. Seeing Citra is a 6.7% ABV IPA made exclusively with, you guessed it, Citra hops. Available at the brewery now.
