Cape Ann Brewing Company is an award-winning, family-owned, micro-brewery and the home of Fisherman's Brew. 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.

Highly Recommend for a fun local time. We were in town getting beer at a liquor store looking for a local brew and ask a local what he recommended. He said if we really wanted local go to Cape Ann Brewing Co. He told us they have a lot of new original brews on tap however they do not sell... More

Casual pub with outdoor seating available. Good for large groups. I'm not a beer drinker but the adults in our group enjoyed it! There was live music on the Sunday evening we were there! I ordered the fish tacos, beer battered with corn salsa and guac, yummy! This also came with shoestring type fries. A few in our group got... More

We had lunch here. Sitting outside was a great idea (the weather was perfect and the view of the fishing boats coming in and out of the bay was interesting). I had the BBQ chicken sandwich which was loaded down with sauce just poured over a grilled chicken breast - I would pass on that next time. My boyfriend really... More

Nice selection of beers with good food. Fish and chips and wings are excellent. Loved the beer sampling. It's in a very good location.

Ate here one afternoon while visiting the Rockport/Gloucester area. Beers were unexpectedly very good, sandwiches hit the mark. My mom had the clam chowder and absolutely loved it, has been talking about it ever since. We sat out on the outdoor patio, which has a view overlooking a working marina. We had our dog with us, and though the restaurant... More

We've been on lots of brew tours. This place was small, no big deal. Been to small ones. The tour guide was very personable. However, they didn't give any free beer samples. I was disappointed in that, even though I don't drink beer. We didn't stay for a meal, so I cannot comment on their food or prices. My husband... More

Thanks for the review Kathy...I'm not sure why you are under the impression that we don't offer samples of our beer as we certainly do whether you are taking a tour or not. As the tour itself is free we cannot offer free beers as that is illegal in Massachusetts but certainly you are welcome to sample any and all... More

We Enron on a Saturday and got right in at the bar. It was busy but the bartender gave us quick service. We were right by the kitchen and it was nice to see the guy running the kitchen jumping on the servers for letting the food sit. He wanted it out as soon as it hit the window. I... More
