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.

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

THis brewing company makes the best beer I have tasted anywhere. They have a wide variety of flavours, have one awards, and have a great little beer boutique where you can buy bottles, fill your growler or by Picaroons gift items in downtown Fredericton that is worth a visit. Picaroons is truly a gem in Fredericton.
