The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall delighted locals by immersing themselves in the spirit of Newfoundland and Labrador tradition by sharing a pint and sampling freshly made food at a local brewery.

Charles picked up the book and smiled widely as he exclaimed, “Are there 100 ways to cook a moose?”
Mr. Charles laughed and explained the concept as a celebration of the region’s wild food. The New York Times described Mr. Charles as “a leader in a growing movement to celebrate Northern cuisine.”
Brewery co-owner Justin Fong said: “They were both great athletes.
“They gave us all great memories of their time here. We planned the visit for two months and it went smoothly, so we are very satisfied.”
The Quidi Vidi Brewing Company was founded in 1982 in the village of Quidi Vidi on the island of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
After traveling across the UK, Justin’s father became fascinated with homebrew IPA and more and decided to start the brewery in 1996 on the site of a former fish factory.
Since then it has become a popular tourist destination.
Charles and Camilla arrived in St John’s on Tuesday as part of a tour to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
They landed on the island of Newfoundland, which was the first leg of their 72-hour visit, covering an incredible 9,000 miles.
Schoolchildren waving flags and well-wishers greeted the royal couple as they disembarked to begin their busy schedule with a welcome ceremony at St John’s.
The UK enjoys a warm relationship with Canada, where the Queen is Head of State and whose three-day visit is to celebrate Charles and Camilla’s platinum anniversary.
