New Brunswick’s North Shore was practically made for road trips, a chance to explore New Brunswick’s French Acadian culture. Scenic drives, gorgeous views, friendly communities, perfect weather and top-notch craft beer – that’s the recipe for great memories with your family and friends.
Here’s a made-for-craft-beer-lovers road trip guaranteed to show you a great time.
Miramichi is home to a pretty amazing river – acknowledged as one of the world’s best for salmon fishing or better yet, in the summer months, go tubing! Whatever floats your boat, you’ll want to check out Miramichi’s two great microbreweries and consider side-trips to a couple of craft distilleries: Carroll’s Distillery, which is co-located in a Carroll’s Bakery and Three Dog Distilling, brand new on the scene, having just opened in fall 2020.
Waiting further North is a great adventure for anyone looking to make the most of the season. Attraction-wise, Aquarium NB in Shippagan is a must-see.
Eating and drinking well is easy in Caraquet. When you’re done hiking through history at the Village Historique Acadien in nearby Bertrand (and checking into the hotel within the village), you can recharge with a great meal and refreshing brews at any of Caraquet’s restaurants. You can’t go wrong with Le Nouvo Caveau at 1087 Rue du Parc in Paquetville for fine bistro dining, or a beer or cocktail by the bay at La Brokerie in Caraquet during the summer.
