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.

“Buying beer at yuppy Picaroons is not for the middle class”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

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.

“Best beer in Fredericton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

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.

“World class beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

This beer should be famous the world over. Try the Best Bitter, it's as good as anything I've had. They should export far and wide.

Mellissa is the location of the brewery....brewtique on queen is where you get growlers. :). Quite a bit of selection. The website shows what is currently available.
