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.

Great beer and lots of choices from IPAs to specialty/season beers. Located downtown with lots to see and do minutes away. Enjoy a growler or two with friends. Very knowledgeable staff.

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.

I have been drinking Picaroon's products since the early days of the craft brewing fad. These guys have grown the craft and been helpful to other start ups with a passion for this oldest human craft. My favourite product is "Dark and Stormy" the Picaroon's take on a dunkel, but they are best known for their english style ales. They... More

Picaroons is a decent local craft beer, it's cheapness in price makes up for the lack of quality control and consistency in the product. Nothing can make up for the absolutely atrocious customer service. From rude clerks who feel it acceptable to be extraordinarily rude to customers to the absolute idiocy of the new and "better" taps causing line ups... More

I am a lover of rich beers with flavour, not mass-produced watered-down stuff. Picaroons has consistently made great beer for various occasions. Personal favourites are Melonhead, Dark and Stormy, the new "Regiment" ale, and Irish Red. They are a strong supporter of the local arts scene and other local businesses. I have seen their beer in homes in other provinces!

From using local homegrown organic hops to supporting the local music and arts scene, Picaroons always satisfies and goes above and beyond while delivering on their promise of quality tasty beer! From seasonal favourites (Organic Summer Ale and "The 12 Beers of Christmas") to tasty regular offerings, this craft brewing company makes it easy to be a proud supporter of... More
