As the seasons change, so too does our lineup of food and drink tours in Saint John. During October, we still try to match our schedule to visiting cruise ships, but come November we'll be heading into our winter routine. If you visit the TOURS page, you'll see that all your favourite Uncorked Tours continue to be offered through even the coldest months.
November 2018 - April 2019
Uncork Saint John is available on Fridays and Saturdays
Our Saint John Brew Pubs tour is offered Thursdays and Sundays
Fundy Seafood City is offered Thursday through Saturday
Beer-unch is available every Sunday at noon
This time of year there is one brew in particular that we look forward to at Uncorked Tours. The cooling of the season has many breweries turning to darker, spicier flavours in their seasonal offerings so I hope it's not a surprise that the beer I always look forward to is Big Tide Brewing's Pumpkin Ale. An annual treat, only available from Thanksgiving to Hallowe'en, the amber ale takes on a slightly orange-y hue, and the glasses, rimmed with pumpkin pie spice, offer the best complementary aroma.
Receive a special thank you gift and a beer voucher for a complimentary pint of Pumpkin Ale when your batch is ready!
