Picaroons has a great selection beers, from the originals like Irish Red and Best Bitters to the seasonals like Melon Head and the special occasion beers they often introduce. Friendly and knowledgeable staff at the brewery and the store front. Keep up the good work!

This is a little Pub you need to visit while in town. They are a Micro Brewery and sell their own creations. Some of those creations are just excellent and are often featured at local Liquor stores where you can but a "Growler" (about 1.7 Qts.Imp or 2 US Qts. or 1.89 L. for around $10-$12 Can.

Picaroon's is a local brewery that makes some of the best beer you will ever taste. The Brewtique sells bottles, or you can fill a Growler for $10 ($20 if you're buying a Growler too). They have several varieties-IPA, stouts, pilsners, seasonal etc. You can't sit at the Brewtique, but it is a must to stop by and pick up... More

Excellent Beer, with very friendly staff. $10 for 64 ounces is a bargain, unless you drink swill. If you can't make up your mind try tasting a couple. You won't be disappointed.

The best bet, by far, for a good beer, at a decent price, in the Maritimes. Excellent selection, very friendly staff, and at $10, tax included to fill a growler, a great choice. Cheers from your Gritty growler customer

We visited this location on Friday July 11. The young lady on staff was very helpful in giving us some information about their brews so we could decide. I tried the Yippee IPA - it was very strong, but I liked the hoppiness! My husband tried the Irish Red and Best Bitter - he said both were good. I believe... More

Besides there is almost always more than 5 local crafted beer to choose from the staff is always friendly. They are willing to chat and share stories. This is byfar the cheapest place to get beer and bonus, its also the best.
