Looking for locally crafted faire and tasty micro-brews? Look no further than New Brunswick’s growing microbrewery and craft cider scene. We crossed the province travelling from major cities Moncton to Saint John to Fredericton as well as the northern corners of NB tasting local beer (and don’t worry we weren’t driving) to find out who had the best brews.

Want to try all these beers but don’t have enough time to visit them all? If you are in Fredericton check out the Gray Stone Brewery and James Joyce Pub. The James Joyce Pub has an amazing burger (made with all local ingredients) called The Big MacLeod and a huge selection of rotating local beers on tap. Gray Stone Brewery is the go to after work scene featuring a large selection of local beers on tap and a super yummy food cart in the parking lot (yes, you can bring the food inside the brewery) that serves deep fried pickles and portobello mushroom fries. Enough said.
