MONCTON, N.B. — A new brewpub is opening its doors on the University of Moncton campus this week, according to the CBC.
Le Coude, which opens March 17, is a partnership between Acadie-Broue and the university’s student union.
Patrice Godin, who started Acadie-Broue nanobrewery in 2010 with a line-up of 10 beers named after Acadian culture, first proposed a campus microbrewery in 2008 but nothing came of it. This time, a member the university’s student union approached him to make the idea a reality. “I will try to get the faculties involved, so I would like them to come up with beer names and beer styles that will be familiar with their own field of studies,” says Gordin.
Pascal Hache, president of the student union, says although the bar is primarily for students, the whole community is welcome as well [cbc.ca].
