Owner description: Picaroons award-winning traditional ales are made with the finest quality malted barley imported from England and Germany. Whole hops are imported from England, New Zealand and the west coast of North America. Plus they use a signature Ringwood Yeast and New Brunswick's deep well water. Picaroons is New Brunswick's first new generation micro-brewer. As part of the Atlantic ÉCONOMUSÉE Network, visitors can tour the 6000 sq. ft. brewery and talk with the brew master.

I found this by accident after asking for something local in the hotel. Walked out with 2 cases to take home with me.

Picaroons brewtique offer great beer at great prices. A 64oz Growler for $10 or 15.6 cents per ounce versus about 14.5 cents per ounce for the over marketed stuff the large breweries sell us. Call me a yuppy for 1 cent per ounce.

This brew is expensive at Picaroons and for yuppy budgets. The problem with local craft beer companies is that they think that they can charge what the market can stand. Buying craft beer in Canada, one would think that they are buying gold in a bottle or a rare commodity. I prefer going to the States to buy my craft beer at a reasonable price.

Simeon Jones amber ale = yummy!!! The blond beer is very good as well. Good brewpub choices. Try to go on a night when they are tapping a keg. Quite the experience as I learned a lot.
