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.

I had a beer mixed with bloody Mary mix which I luved, but the portions of seafood (considering they are feet from the boats) was much to expensive. I ordered a fish fry paid $4 more than I would inland at home and got half as much. Other meals in our party were about the same.

The food is always great, the service is excellent and there are always a number of beer choices available. The seafood is reliably fresh. In the summer you can sit at a picnic table outside on the deck. Year round you can sit at picnic tables inside or at the bar.

Went for dinner and their beer. I like IPA's and they had 3. The food was just ok and i enjoyed the beer until I tried the last IPA (my wife and I split the other 2 IPAs). The description let you know it was a knock your socks off kind of extra hoppy IPA. It was too out there... More

All kinds of Condiments are your table. Even outdoor seating with a plastic see through curtain wall to keep rainy weather out under an awning. Fries were totally awesome the... More

Get a beer flight and sit on the patio and enjoy. Don't bother with the food. Also, they don't serve wine and the iced tea is terrible. But get a beer!

Great fish and chips, perfect sea side setting out on the porch, and a tasty Pilsner. Perfect lunch after a fun local dive.

This was your average pub type place with bar food, sandwiches, and some plates. I ordered the clam chowder because I figured MA would have good chowder, and the steak bomb sandwich. I thought the chowder was average, it was very thick and came out warm. The steak bomb was ground up beef on a wedge with peppers, onions, and... More

Cape Ann Brewing in Gloucester is a good, solid pub with a good variety of craft beers and good food. One of the best things about Cape Ann is the location and its good size parking lot. Parking can sometimes be an issue in downtown Gloucester. Parking there, having a beer, walking the marina trail or just walking the streets... More
