It’s mid-winter (ish) and unseasonably warm temperatures have meant a longer (warmer) hiking and trail-walking season. And to celebrate we’ve been testing the hell out of some hiking boots from Bogs Footwear. Yes, Bogs. The makers of hiking and casual shoes you never knew about.

With access to the Appalachians, a series of major river systems, and coasts to the east and the south, New Brunswick is made for road tripping. The province is only around 28,000 square miles (73,000 square kilometers) so it’s easy to get from one place to the other—even with frequent stops.
On my recent trip on the Fundy Coastal Drive, I found myself signaling right to sample chocolates, lobster, smoked salmon, poutine, blueberry wine, and more. The route, which takes you from Moncton near the east to St. Stephen on the southwestern tip (and close enough to the border with Maine to ping their cell towers), is loaded with things to eat. Here’s a (non-exhaustive) guide to grazing. Continue Reading →
“You can’t choose your family but you can choose your beer,” joked Padraig Fox, Export Manager for Rye River Brewing Company, in conveying the tagline for McGargles Irish Family Brewing. The beers, deftly personified by caricatures of a dysfunctional family, range from the elder matron Granny Mary (Red Ale) to hipster Cousin Rosie (Pale Ale).
