This is not so much a bar hop as a bar marathon that runs (get it?) the entire length of Canada. If you have the stamina, so do we.

Here are three pieces of trivia regarding Saint John, New Brunswick that you can use to impress your friends: 1) it is THE first official city in Canada; 2) it is located on the Bay of Fundy, whose tides rise and fall, twice a day, a staggering four-storeys each time; and 3) it is the home of that favorite beer of many a beer-lover: Moosehead.

Directly on this city’s harbor you’ll find the Hilton Saint John with its newly-opened York Bistro Pub. Now, with Saint John being the home of Moosehead Breweries and all that, you can, of course, expect to find Moosehead Beer on the pub's drinks menu. But if you only have a brewskie, you’ll be missing out.

The pub specializes in seasonal ingredients and incorporates on-the-money drink trends in their menu -- elderflower, pomegranate, cucumber, agave syrup and the like. Their house cocktail is, not surprisingly, called “The York” and is made with vodka, Triple Sec, mango, lemon and is topped off with club soda.
