“No real tour but hey they offer free tastings!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is place a cute small brewery. The tour takes you into one room that has all the ingredients and tanks holding the beer. They do however tell you all about the types of beer they make and give you a good pours on the tastings. The guys running the tastings are there to answer any and all questions that you may have. You can tell they love their jobs! If you have 30 minutes and you want to try some pretty good local beers check this place out!

“Drink it!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great to have a fresh local beer on tap in many bars on Cape. This is a very small operation and as yet can not be found 'off-Cape'.

“Informative fun tour not to mention great beer.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We checked for the day when the brewery was having a tour and it just so happened to be overcast and a great way to spend some time.

Our first day of this visit to the Cape was highlighted by a taste of Cape Cod Blonde. It was refreshing , crisp and just the right level of hops. It made us want to visit the brewery and learn more.

The place is not easy to find, as there are no signs or notices except to the entrance of the parking lot. We got there early to be sure to have a spot as there is only one tour.

The place is staffed by young, bright enthusiastic people. The person conducting the tour was extremely knowledgeable about the beer making process as well as the differences between the brews as well as distribution. During the talk, we were able to sample three of their current production. Obviously, they were very fresh and distinctive. The guide as well was proud to state that he was very proud to work there as well as consume the product.

Fun visit.

“Mmmm beer”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

The beer is excellent. The best one they had this time of year is the Cape Cod Blonde. They staff is friendly and give a generous tasting. Our server seemed to enjoy sharing his knowledge of brewing with us. You can buy a large beer bottle which is refillable at a discount. We took advantage of this and were pleased with our decision. I wish their brews were available off of the Cape, but apparently they are not.

“From Heaven to Your Growler”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

One of the best local breweries in Massachusetts. Unavailable past Plymouth, their beer is truly Cape Cod beer. Not too many varieties-they stick with what they are good at. The Red Ale is honestly one of the best micro brewery beers I have ever tasted. The IPA is also stellar, hoppy and strong. Hard to believe it, but also one of the best IPAs I have encountered. The other offerings vary in quality, but these two are their workhorses. It is the only beer I drink while on the Cape. Visit the brewery for a growler, but make sure you check their hours. Saturdays they close early. And ask for a taste of everything on tap. If not too busy, they will happily oblige. Go now.
