• BBQ Pairings HEADER EN

Nothing is better than warm days, cool nights, and even cooler products. Summer is definitely here, but New Brunswickers know it’s never here to stay (we don’t dare say the “W” word). As much as a year-round Summer sounds nice, there’s something special about rushing out to savour every sunny weekend.

Our favourite summer products have finally hit shelves, and we think the best way to enjoy them is outdoors alongside classic BBQ meals and summer treats. The ANBL Team at your local store would LOVE to discuss any of your flavor ideas. So explore some of the products below and EAT THIS, DRINK THAT!
