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.

“Cool place but”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I did not like the way the tables were set up picnic style & the bands that played are always too loud and we asked them 3 times to lower it so we could ave a conversation at lunch with friends & we are not old curmudgeons we are all in our 30's.

This is a must for anyone who enjoys tasting different types of beer. You can try a variety of beer that is made at the brewery. The food is also excellent.

“Very good beer and food, great ambiance and view”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Don't miss going here. The beer and the food were very good. We both had the fish and chips and they were delicious. Lots of fish in a light batter. Try the Pumpkin Stout even if you think you don't like stouts. This is not heavy and it was very tasty. It's a very casual place with great views from the deck. Even on a cool evening it was nice sitting outdoors. Service was very good.

“Great beer and food”
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!”
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.
