About Big Tide Brewing Company

Our brewers, Wendy Papadopoulos, Thomas Frauley, and Chris Welch are intensely passionate about their personalized approach to the science of brewing. Their dedication is manifested in the taste and flavour consistency of their efforts.

Our team of talented chefs strive to offer a variety of appetizers and entrees that utilize our unique brews during their creation. Our delicious pub staples and samples are the perfect match to our beer.

Big tide strives to celebrate our regional heritage, history, and culture through the names of our brews: Fogbound Hemp Pale, Seaworthy IPA, Benedict Arnold Extra Special Bitter, and Sandpiper Pilsner to name a few. The latter is named for our unofficial mascot - the semipalmated sandpiper. This tiny shorebird is common in the Bay of Fundy area in late July and early August as it stocks up on fuel for its long trip back to South America. The semipalmated sandpiper is unique and distinct - just like us. Wise semipalmated snappers know that the best place to fuel up is the Bay of Fundy, which is, coincidently, where you'll find the Big tide Brewing Company, source of some of the best fuel around.
