Chill Out

On the way out of town, I follow the winding Sugarloaf Path along the water to Quidi Vidi historic fishing village, where I'm told the holy grail of microbrews exists. Here, shining in the sun, is the hunter green building that houses Quidi Vidi Brewing Company Limited, the largest microbrewery in St. John's and home to Iceberg beer, a light brew made with 25,000-year-old iceberg water.

The tasting room overlooks blue and red fishing boats gliding through the water. Giant silver vats process the award-winning drafts. I buy a six-pack of Iceberg for later, and wave goodbye to some fishermen on a sky blue vessel.
