Attraction Details
Owner description: 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.

“Great beer and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We were introduced to this place when we took the Taste Gloucester tour. My wife went back because we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere along with the choices of beer. The fact that the food was great just made it a wonderful experience.

“Part of the Taste Gloucester Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Delicious beer-battered haddock & chips, deep-fried calamari & shrimp, washed down with 2 selections of local beer -- Fishermen's Brew & Sunrise Saison pale ale. Amazing.

“Great beer - terrible food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

The beer is made on spot -that they are really good at. But stay far away from the food - it is by far the worst we got at our 3 weeks US round trip vacation. 5 dots for the beer - zero for the food.

“Good sized portions, great beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Anyone who is a huge fan of craft beer and brewpubs would benefit from checking this place out. There's a good tap list that rotates seasonally, and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful.

We sat outside, and thee was ample seating on their patio. One of the local plants was processing something, so the air had a slightly unpleasant smell to it, but my dining companion and I adjusted quickly. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beer and menu. The food is simple pub fare done very well and the portions are generous. For the person who can't make up their mind, they have a good sampler option.

As a beer fan, I'd like to hit up every brewery in the state. Cape Ann will probably get a few more visits out of me in my quest.
