Besichtigung einer Moosehead-Brauerei

DETAILS

  • 2 Stunden

Sample several tasty beers at Moosehead, the country’s last major Canadian-owned brewery, and then watch the extraordinary tidal phenomenon known as the Reversing Rapids. After departing from the pier, you will begin a brief but informative tour of Saint John, Canada’s first incorporated city. Although the Great Fire of 1877 destroyed much of Saint John, the city was beautifully rebuilt with stone and brick following that conflagration.


Along the way, you will see the former site of the Red Ball Brewery. It was owned by the Oland family that started Moosehead, one of the most revered brands of beer in Canada. While touring the modernized Moosehead facility, you will watch the beer being brewed, bottled and shipped. The process is as fascinating as the company’s 150-year history. You will sample several types of beer including one from an aged cask. The tastes reflect the local ingredients and show the diversity of product. Continuing on, you will soon arrive at Wolastoq, a park whose name means “beautiful river” in the language of the Maliseet people that once lived here. The views will be spectacular, especially of the Reversing Rapids, a natural phenomenon created during high tide, when the Bay of Fundy rises 14 feet higher than the Saint John River, reversing its flow. You will also see a wood carving of famed brewer George Oland before returning to the pier.
