What a great weekend! Even though I was under the weather, I managed to attend two really fun events.
On Saturday, Adam and I went to the 2nd Saint John Beer Fest held at Market Square. It was a great setup. Small enough to be intimate, but enough vendors to get a real taste of the craft beer being produced nearby. I saw my friends from Picaroons (who won gold for their Oak Casked Winter Warmer) and from Big Tide (who won silver for their Sandpiper Pilsner). Along with many other beer, I tried the new Beach Chair Lager from Gahan in PEI. It's quite refreshing. I'll be doing a public tasting of Gahan beer at the Lansdowne liquor store this Friday from 4-8.
After so much fun Saturday night, it was hard to get reved up to work on Sunday. Thank goodness it was a breeze. The It's A Girl Thing show at the Saint John Art Centre was a pleasure to be a part of. Hundreds of women, and a few men, spent the afternoon browsing among the vendors. Thank you to everyone who entered my draw for a half-day winery tour and thank you to everyone who signed up for my mailing list. The next email will be coming out in the next few weeks.
I can't believe that April is already half over. Soon May will be upon us and summer isn't too long after that. Reservations are starting to come in for winery tours, which begin next week. May is a great time to visit the vineyard. The vines are just starting to grow again, and it's easy to imagine what they will look like in the fall, laden with fruit.
At Uncorked Tours we're all about sharing the fabulous wine, beer and spirits being produced in the Province of New Brunswick.
It is my pleasure to share with you the great food and drink being produced here in NB, as well as the awesome experiences you can have while living here or visiting the province.
May you always have good wine in your glass and friends to share it with.
