Big Tide Brewing Co, Saint John, N.B.

Since August of 2009, Big Tide Brewing Co. has been providing hand-crafted all-natural ales and lagers. It is located on Princess Street in Saint John, New Brunswick, and of course,    I had some nachos one cold night in November of 2018, again for a nice supper in March 2021, again in September 2021, and finally in November 2021.  Big Tide Beef Nachos - November 2021 Bigger Tide Chicken Nachos - September 2021 Bigger Tide Chicken Nachos (beneath the cheese) - September 2021 Bigger Tide Nachos (beef) - March 2021 Bigger Tide Nachos (beef) - March 2021 Big Tide Beef Nachos - November 2018 Big Tide Beef Nachos - November 2018 Distribution of Toppings Big tide seems to fluctuate with distribution of toppings, going from bad to excellent and back to bad.

However, we decided that we finally needed to dedicate a visit to Thandi for nacho research. It would also make sense to go since I mentioned them in the CBC interview (May 2021) but they were not yet posted on the blog! What if they should have been in the top ten all along?
