It’s Brewpub features the brewery’s award-winning craft beers brewed on-site, with a bar shaped like the port side of a ship. Long, German-style wooden tables and a sitting area with several rocking chairs create a mellow, laid-back atmosphere unlike anything else in the Cape Ann community. Classic board games are available for leisurely enjoyment. Local artist renderings adorn the wood-paneled walls and the large picture windows look out onto St. Peter’s Square where the famed St. Peter’s Fiesta is held each June. « less

I was the only one not drinking the beer. There were 9 of us& 8 of them got a flight of beer, so they were able to taste all of the beers offered. They were a hit. The food was delish. Blue crab sandwich was good. I had fish taco, very good. Fish and chips were good. I would suggest... More

Great pub, but does look more interesting and promissing from the outside. Not really cosy, but good enough for a night out. Nice beer assortiment. Would go there again.

I've been on a ton of whale watches with my family and every single time I have to go to Cape Ann Brewing Company and get a table sitting outside overlooking the harbor. Life is good! I love their food and my daughters Maya and Paige love it too! I've got some really great pictures of them with the Marina... More

This is a nice place to have lunch and their beers are really good! I was only able to have two and try a third, but they were all wonderful. That imperial pumpkin stout is great. Wish I had a growler of that!

Cape Ann Brewing is located right in the center of the coastal city of Gloucester and has both a restaurant and bar all in one. The seating is both inside and outside and they brew all kinds of different beers of various styles and offer some pretty decent food as well. Parking was easy to find as they are adjacent... More

Service and food were terrible! Read great reviews on this place and was highly disappointed. We ordered the nachos, these were were the most disgusting nachos I have ever tasted, hardly any cheese and tasted freezer burnt. We sent them back, the waitress never said sorry. Our entrees were ok. I got the pulled pork, hubby got the fish and... More

I'm very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal at The Pub. I do want to clarify that there is nothing on our nachos that is ever frozen. Our chips and salsa are made in house and none of the optional additions such as chicken, steak or pulled pork ever gets frozen either before or after it gets to... More

Needed a quick drink and this place is perfect. Micro brewery and their staff is knowledgeable on its history. Everything is brewed on site and they do free tours..

We stumbled upon this place while walking around Gloucester and had planned to go in for one beer and move on. However when we sat down, in what we thought was a really fun beer hall we couldn't bring ourselves to leave until we had tried several of the excellent microbrews. They have a beer sampler set which gives you... More

Glad you guys brought your "Sexy Minds" in for trivia night and had a good time(I'm not being creepy folks, that was their team name...sheesh). Glad we'll be one of the good things you can talk about when you get home to Denmark. Cheers! More

Ok so it's picinic style dining. You are sitting with other strangers...and basically in each other's conversations. The beers were GOOD, but that's where it ends. The butternut apple squash soup tasted like a campfire!! The pulled pork sandwich came out after I took one sip of my soup...how bout spacing out my meal a bit?? THAT was REALLY annoying!... More

First let me express my apologies that you didn't enjoy your experience at The Pub. As far as the beer hall style seating, it's not a secret to the patron as when you walk in the tables are all right in front of you. If your preference is not to eat at one of the long tables then there are... More

We sat outside and watched the fishing boats unload. We ordered a Fish Sandwich and Chicken Quesadilla. Both were good. My husband had a few beers but they do not have a liquor license so no cocktails. Service was very friendly and prompt. Would go again
