Jeremy Goldberg, owner of Cape Ann Brewing Co. and his incredible crew have just opened their new canning facility on Whittemore Street in Gloucester…and it is gorgeous. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything so shiny and clean! I don’t claim to know much about the process of brewing beer, but I can say that their new facility and equipment are incredibly impressive.
On Friday evening they welcomed their “Mug Club” members to tour their new digs and I was happy to tag along. To use their own words, “Fisherman’s beer — whose bold flavor and character reflect the spirit and courage of the sailors of the North Atlantic fishing fleet — is a tribute to hard work and a salute to friendships that endure.” Well, it is clear that is true, when in the presence of this group of friends/co-coworkers. They were excited, enthusiastic, and, as they should be, very proud of what they are accomplishing.
Check out their website for more information
Be on the lookout for the news cans…each design proudly showcasing the Fishermen’s Memorial Statue…and don’t forget to stop by the Pub at Cape Ann Brewing for some great eats, entertainment, and a seat on Gloucester’s Harbor before the nice weather is behind us!
Awesome things happening locally! Great work, Cape Ann Brewing Co.!
Hi Joey,I hope this note finds you well. I wanted to bring your attention to an event that might make sense for Good Morning Gloucester’s calendar or Facebook page.
A few weeks ago Voyageur Press published my third book, The Great Northeast Brewery Tour, a title that introduces people to 62 of the best and brightest craft breweries between DC and Maine, including Gloucester’s Cape Ann Brewing Company. Heavily illustrated with color photographs, it also includes beer focused restaurants, local accommodations, and nearby activities.
Thanks for your consideration,

Well it’s not quite October, but beer festivals are already starting up. Tonight Alchemy will host live music with Marina Evans and Dave Brown (normally they don’t have music on Thursdays) to help celebrate North Shore Beer Week featuring homemade brew’s from Cape Ann Brewery. Check out her new EP and maybe you’ll want to request one of those songs.
Then you’ve got a choice of 21 artists Friday and Saturday (see schedule here)
Next Saturday (Oct 6) is the last 2012 Celtic Music Sail aboard the Lannon. If you’ve never experienced truly acoustic music – no mics, no amps, no speakers – on a schooner in full sail, this should be on your bucket list. (Now, I’m not suggesting that you’re not likely to make it until next summer, but why take the chance, right?) You know you’re getting top musicianship when the wind is literally the only thing between you and the sound of voices and instruments.

Take advantage of our thriving music scene during these last few days of September, with over 30 artists performing this weekend (remember, the weekend starts tonight). See the complete schedule of all live music in Gloucester and Cape Ann here.
My sister-in-law and her boyfriend are visiting from Cincinnati, Ohio. Liv is here too, taking a few days off from the hubbub of NYC. I am having so much fun giving the grand tour of our island that I feel as though I am on staycation while they are here vacationing. Our guests arrived late Tuesday night and we had a classic New England dinner waiting for them, with fresh off-the-boat Captain Joe and Sons steamed lobsters (two for each as they are so affordable), red cabbage and carrot coleslaw, potato salad, Alexandra’s olive bread, and blueberry cake with whip cream.
Yesterday after touring the Gloucester Harbor Walk, we stopped at Virgilios for take-out sandwiches to bring to the Dog Bar Breakwater for lunch. Then off to Good Harbor Beach for a swim before dinner.
We had a wonderfully fun dinner at The Pub at Cape Ann Brewing Company. Fried calamari for me, beer-marinated steak tips for Liv, delicious fish cakes for Tom, and Amy and Arnold both had the yummy haddock tortillas. Everyone enjoyed their beer selection from the unique and varied beer menu. Liv’s choice was especially interesting; a refreshing summer ale, their Saison, brewed with strawberries and rhubarb.

Today we’re off to visit Willowdale Estate, whale watch, and then a late night birthday dinner for my husband Tom at the fabulous Duckworth’s!
The people, the sights, the natural beauty that surrounds–wouldn’t you agree that we live in just the most beautiful and the most interesting Staycation Destination anywhere?
