Cape Cod Craft Beer Brewery Guide

Cape Cod Brewery

Welcome to Your Cape Cod Brewery Guide!

Visiting a Cape Cod Brewery is a must whether you are living on the Cape and Islands or just here on vacation.

While beer is available at liquor stores throughout the region, the Cape & Islands also are home to a number of fine local breweries, each with their own story.

Cape Cod Beer

A beer and ale staple in the region, Cape Cod Beer uses their own original recipes. Cape Cod Beer’s philosophy is to brew the best beer possible on Cape for the people who love the Cape and distributes its beer and ales within a 50 mile radius of the brewery, from Plymouth to Provincetown. With a maximum annual capacity of 13,000 barrels housed in their brew house, Cape Cod Beer brews about 16 times a week during the busy season.

If you’re curious how this local beer and ale is brewed, Cape Cod Beer hosts tours of the brewery once a day at 11 a.m. Monday – Saturday. Here is a video of what you can expect on a tour!

Cisco Brewers features numerous island-themed brews like the Whale’s Tale Pale Ale, an English style pale ale that is named in honor of Nantucket’s rich whaling history, the Grey Lady, which is named for the fog that often encompasses the island and Sankaty Light Lager, named after the lighthouse on the bluff on the southeastern side of the island.

Several years of consulting and obtaining permits later and Devil’s Purse opened in 2015. Tastings are available Tuesday – Saturday 12pm – 6pm.
