My husband and I drove here...it is a back road with an old factory building which may or may not still be used for something to do with the Brewery. The actual address... More

Can't wait to visit the newshop/facility. It will be funny to see people with growlers on the walking bridge!

Great little brewery in Fredericton. Went there to grab a growler fill of the Melon Head, and it was a really nice beer! I've had a few others by them as well, and I've never been let down. They're all delicious. Now stop reading this and go get some beer, mang.

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.
