THE BREWER'S BASH IS BACK!PICAROONS TRADITIONAL ALES presents the second annual "BREWER'S BASH", Saturday July 12 in Officers' Square, in Downtown Fredericton. An all star cast of CRAFT Breweries from all over Canada - from Yukon to Newfoundland - will be available from 11AM to 11PM, along with some great food and great LIVE music. Stay tuned for more details!
"There are different formats for beer festivals, and we are using the "self-regulated consumption" model - we're not intending to mislead anyone. The initial entrance package is priced on the low side and includes admission to the site, a tasting glass, program, and a starter pack of beer tickets. Tickets are exchanged at the tasting booths for samples. Once you finish the first few samples and have checked out the event, you can purchase as many, or as few, tasting coupons as you like. The site is open for 12 hours and you can come and go as you please. I like this format because you can relax and search out all of the neat beer on offer. And there'll be LOTS of beer. We're assembling a fantastic selection of Canadian craft beer for this fest. We've called upon our brewer friends all across the country to send us their best, most interesting beers. This one is all about sampling beers we've never had the opportunity to sample before. It's not an all-you-can-drink-in-three-hours binge fest. Lots of festivals use this format and it's one that, as a brewer, I prefer. Like so much that we've done since day one at Picaroons, we'll need to help folks understand that this is a little different from some of the other local festivals. Being different is what we do. It may be something a little bit different for this area and, maybe it is a little hard to explain - but trust us, you'll get to taste lots of great beer.
