Funky little place in the heart of Saint John. Good food. Nice ambiance. Selection featured about 5 or 6 choices. We had the "wood", a selection of four brews. Included the bitter, IPa, hefe and ESB. I ended up with a 20 oz glass of the double IPA. Very good. Not sure how value compares to other places. Very good and decent overall.

Visited Aug-2011. Great location! Ate some bruschetta, which was pretty decent. Place has a huge sunny ceiling and fun laminated cartoons on all the tables. Beers were in good shape, tried a couple that were fine but not going to knock any socks off. Staff was friendly (if a little slow at the end getting our bill). Would recommend if already in the area.

Nice place to stop in downtown St. John. Good little beer selection of their own stuff from light to dark ales. Decent food and good prices. Always received great service here too, would recommend to anyone and will be back when Iím in the area.

Drove 10 hours from NJ for 8 days in the Maritimes and Saint John was our first stop...so as a craftbeer lover...Big Tide was my first stop in Saint John. Although the craftbeer pickings in NB are slim...this establishment is actually not bad at all...and certainly a great find after our lengthy travels. I found the people very welcoming and helpful and the food (just had appetizers) quite good. Although none of the beers were stongly hoppy as I prefer...I was not expecting those styles to be common in the eastern provinces. Nonetheless, the beer was very decent and one of their ales quite close to my preferred style even if a bit mild. I would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling through Saint John or on their way to/from the Bay of Fundy sites.

This one was a solid little brewpub. Nothing special, but worth a stop in Saint John, especially if you are looking for craft beer as there are not really any destination places in town.

Nice little brew pub. has three or four of their beers on tap while I was there. Decent prices for the area...12 oz glass for $5 and 20 oz and 20oz for $7. Has a nice view of brewing area near the entrance and bar. Playful atmosphere..each table has an old cartoon on it. The beers are lightly filtered and easy drinking style but still worth the visit while in the area.

2011-08-01. Came in for lunch and sat in a booth in the bar area. I quite like the posters laminated on the tables - ours was Scooby Doo- Atmosphere was pubby, a bit dark and sparse, and overly warm today.We later discovered that there is a second dining area, with a huge window open onto the street, and was much nicer. Food was decent. I quite enjoyed my fish burger, though it needed a bit more sauce (I thought 50 cents for a side of mayo was a bit cheeky, but didnít bother to protest). Server was friendly but a bit slow when it came time to get our bills. House beers were hit and miss, but generally decent. I would come back if I was in town but probably wouldnít go too far out of my way if I wasnít already going to Saint John.
