 Cape Ann Brewing Company Opens Brew Pub in Gloucester

 (Gloucester, MA) – Cape Ann Brewing Company, an award-winning, family-owned, micro-brewery and the home of Fisherman’s Brew, in the heart of downtown Gloucester, announced today the opening of its highly anticipated Brewpub.

 The Brewpub, features the brewery’s award-winning craft beers brewed onsite, in a unique community gathering room featuring 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, books, magazines, newspapers and bar 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.

 Cape Ann Brewing Company was founded in 2004. Head brewer and co-founder Jeremy Goldberg began his sojourn into professional brewing as a home-brewer and broker on Wall Street. After September 11, 2001, looking for a change Goldberg embarked upon a 38 brewery 40 day micro-brewery cross-country tour with a some  of friends to film the documentary, American Beer. Upon return, Goldberg knew that the brewing industry was his future and 6 months later, along with his father Michael Goldberg and his brother in law, had begun preparation for the opening of the Cape Ann Brewing Company. In May of 2004 Cape Ann Brewing released it’s Fisherman’s Brew and have grown to distribute it’s beer in 9 states from Maine to Virginia.

 “My family and I are immensely proud of the brews we produce and are delighted to be able to serve our customers on premise,” said Jeremy Goldberg, Head Brewer and co-founder of Cape Ann Brewing Company. “It was my father’s and my dream to start a micro-brewery together. Our Brewpub is family-friendly and not the typical watering hole. We don’t serve liquor at all, and only serve the beer is made right here.”

 The Brewpub will also feature non-alcoholic beverages and pizza from Panorama Pizza in Gloucester. The menu will soon expand to include offerings from several local businesses including Panorama Pizza, Ned’s Groceria, and Sasquatch Smoked Fish, as well as an assortment of bar snacks.

Jacked Rabbit Shows Off The Guns

I gotta admit when I went to my first roller derby I thought that it was going to ge all fake with scripted fights and theatricals like professional wrestling.  The theatricals are there by virtue of the outfits and announcers and all but the athletes that participate are very serious once they get on the track.  The skaters are big time athletes and want to win. They are all giving 110%. This about as real a sport as you can get.
