At Uncorked Tours we love our Beer, and so do all of our friends. But what do you do when you have six different people who all like something different? Hoppy beers, balanced beers, drinkable beers, extra special bitter beers, domestic beer and craft beer are just some of the descriptors we use now. It can be hard in this big beer world we live in for a group of people to agree on what they should drink.
The solution is simple, do the Big Flight, at the Saint John Ale House. The Big Flight is exactly what it sounds like. One giant paddle with every single beer the Saint John Ale House has on tap. That's 30 beers! Everything from Moosehead to Loyalist City Pale Ale! Of course, the beer they have on tap is always changing, so chances are you'll never have the exact same flight twice.
The best part is that Thursday is flight night at the Saint John Ale House, where all flights, including the Big Flight, is discounted. So grab your best friends, or 5 of them, and head to the Ale House. Regardless of their preferences in the beer, they will be sure to have something to satisfy their palate.

Highlights: Lobster poutine, Fossil Hunting, Waterside Winery
Duration: 2-3 hours
Pairing: Waterside Winery - Sparkling Rhubarb
Anyone who has been on a tour with me knows that I am nuts about rocks, minerals and fossils. My tours regularly include a discussion on deep-time, the moon and the tides, and famous fossils from Saint John. Not to mention the geology of the stones used to build Uptown SJ after the 1877 fire. So imagine my surprise when I "discovered" that Cape Enrage, New Brunswick is home to a FOSSIL BEACH. This was an extra shock since I had grew up visiting Cape Enrage, and I've made several trips to Joggins, NS across the Bay of Fundy, well-known for its fossilized tree trunks and coal seams.
Over the past few years I've introduced a few people to my rockhounding hobby, my husband being one, so we decided to go on a fossil hunting trip to Cape Enrage. On our way we stopped at Waterside Winery, a fruit winery located just a few minutes from Cape Enrage. You can either stop in on your way, or if you have lunch at Cape Enrage, like we did, you can order Waterside Winery wine by the glass.
On the day we visited Cape Enrage was earning its moniker. The wind blew so strongly that the zipline and rappelling has to be closed. Down on the beach it was a bit more calm and set about on our hunt. It takes a few minutes to adjust your gaze to see across the surface of the rock and "through" time, but it didn't take long before the fossils jumped out at us.
Mostly, we found Calamites, a distant relative to the modern horsetail fern, and the fossils of small bivalves. There was plenty of indication of ancient trackways and ripples from ancient waves preserved in the stone. The most exciting find for me was a circular fossil that reminded me of an echinoid like a sea urchin.
Cape Enrage is home to one of New Brunswick's oldest light stations. The original light was built in 1830, with the current light station being constructed in 1870. You many not see many boats on the Bay today, however, a kilometer reef extending South from Cape Enrage caused many shipwrecks in the 19th centuries when this area was heavily trafficked.
The wind was so strong at the lighthouse that we could barely walk out to it. As we walked along the path, holding the rope railing, we could see the wind whipping up the waves and sediment in the Bay. It's easy to imagine how important these light stations were to mariners in the 19th century, and how scary some of their trips must have been. The Bay provided the main access to the farming communities and the developing community of The Bend (Moncton).
Next time you visit the Upper Bay of Fundy, make sure to schedule enough time for a quick fossil hunt, however, please remember to take only pictures as fossils continue to be protected and should never be removed from the beaches.

We've received a few emails lately from people wondering what this whole "Brunch & Brew" thing is all about, so read ahead to find out what you can expect when you join us for Batch 03 on July 29th.
What is Brunch & Brew?
As craft beer continues to grow in popularity, along with home brewing, we started to wonder if beer drinkers would be interested in finding out how a small, working brewery creates their beer. So we asked, and you said "Yes!"
Brunch & Brew allows us to bring small groups into Big Tide Brewing to learn about the brewing process from Brewmaster Wendy Papadopoulos while enjoying a delicious 2-course brunch and LOTS of beer.
Do I have to get up early?
Good beer takes time, and effort, and time. In order to give you the best experience, we start the brew early and have you to join us at 10:00 am. We'll give you lots of water and coffee (and beer if you want it) and a continental start of fresh fruit and baked goods to kick-start your day. The food and beer will come out pretty steadily for the next 3.5 hours.
What do we do?
Brunch & Brew is the opportunity for you to ask all the brewing questions you've been wondering about. When you arrive, the grain will already be added to the mash tun and there will be an opportunity to learn about the brewing equipment and help with getting the mash fully infused. There will be various 15-minute workshops featuring the 4 main ingredients of beer. As well as brew housework including sterilizing equipment, harvesting yeast, transferring wort, and cleaning. For our last activity, the group will choose the beer style for the next Brunch & Brew.
Upon arrival, there is a continental breakfast with tea and coffee ready for you. You'll enjoy a 2-course brunch featuring mini pancakes and eggs Benedict. You will receive 20 oz of beer as a flight throughout the day, along with a ticket for a pint of your choice that can be filled whenever you're feeling a little parched. In addition, you'll receive an invitation to your beer's launch party that includes a pint of the beer YOU helped brew.
How big is the group?
Big Tide's brew house is fairly small, so group size is limited to a maximum of 12 participants. Make sure to book early!
Will I get dirty? What should I wear?
Brewing is less glamorous than you might think, but it's a ton of fun! That being said, you should wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Closed-toe shoes (anti-slip are best) are required for doing any work in the brew house.
