Histoire

A New Brunswick twist on a German tradition. Using imported German Pilsner malt and a helping of local two-row barley, we’ve created a beer of golden colour and subtle malt character with slight grassy notes that is dry and crisp with a clean finish.  IT’S JUST BEER. Now available in 341ml bottle 6 packs for the first time in Picaroons’ history. EAST KÖLSCH LIFESTYLE

Histoire

First brewed in March 1996 for the Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews. The recipe was developed with the help of the Algonquin’s chef and was originally referred to as “The Algonquin Red,” but we had to change it because some other Algonquin beer existed. We then called it “Finian Irish Red,” but our Irish friends didn’t like it, so it finally became Picaroons Irish Red.

This was first brewed in 2006 as a winter organic beer to complement our Organic Dooryard Summer Ale. It is a recipe that was partially designed with the Weyerman Brewery in Bramburg. It was so popular that it made it into the full-time lineup. This beer is not based on the rum cocktail, but rather a line from Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s 1830 novel Paul Clifford. For literary beer fans out there, check out the The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. *Label Drawing by Tom Giberson

Histoire

En 1859, le ministre des postes, Charles Connell, un loyaliste du comté de Carleton, a commandé de nouveaux timbres pour le Nouveau-Brunswick. Un tumulte s’est ensuivi en 1860 lorsque les timbres de 5 cents, où figurait son propre visage, sont apparus. Cette erreur a vite mené à la démission de Charles Connell. La plupart des spécimens ont été détruits et 115 ans plus tard, le rarissime et très valable timbre Connell est prisé et recherché des collectionneurs autour du monde. Pour connaître le reste de l’histoire, consultez le site de la Carleton County Historical Society Cette bière est brassée pour appuyer la société historique du comté de Carleton et la maison historique Connell à Woodstock au Nouveau-Brunswick. (La Historical Brown est la deuxième d’une série de bières qui appuient des institutions d’importance historique au Nouveau-Brunswick. La première de cette série était la 104th Regiment, en appui du Fredericton Region Museum.
