You will find hand forged flavourful local beers crafted to suit the tastes of our customers using a combination of the best malts, hops, and local ingredients. Small batch beers only available on-site that range from the Picadilly Pale Ale to the Honourable Member Red Ale, to our Gose Before Bros. Sussex Ale Works' ten taps offer an array of brewed-on-site selections as well as a rotating selection of favourite craft brews, ciders, and sometimes even kombucha from throughout New Brunswick.
The perfect end to a day of hiking, skiing, or trail riding, the natural place in town to spend some time chatting, and an awesome place to kick off any evening out. This small space punches above it's weight when it comes to character and vibe. You set the tone - grab a deck of card, the community guitar on the wall, or a board game to go with your beer. You will be shocked when you realize you haven't looked at your phone the whole time - and neither has anyone else!
