Cape Cod Beer Tours and Events


You come to Cape Cod for different reasons but, one things remains unchanged. . .seafood and beer go great together!  The Cape is lucky to have several great local breweries to keep us covered in suds.  Some of our favorites; Cape Cod Beer, Devil’s Purse Brewery, and Cisco Brewers (on Nantucket).  With so many different options there is a lot of brew to be sampled and plenty of tours and events to plan around.  Below we summarize some of this Inn’s favorites and invite you to join us for a tour of the many faces of Cape Cod beer.

Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis may be one of the best known beer makers from the Cape, currently with seven different delicious brews on tap.  Guided Tours are offered Saturday at 11:00 am.  Tour the brewery and sample your favorites or chill in the Beer Garden and play a relaxing game of corn hole.  If you catch them from Memorial Day through Labor Day there are mobile food trucks for one of our favorite scenes….beer and great food, possibly some great local music!  If not, bring your own food and have a good time seeing how beer is made.

Devil’s Purse Brewery in Dennis has tastings (no tours) Thursday – Sunday from 12:00-6:00 pm.  With six brews being crafted you will certainly find one of your own, our favorite…Handline Kolsch.  The Devil’s purse brewery is just off the Cape Cod Rail Trail so, enjoy cooling off and don’t forget to stop tasting when the single line becomes two.Wooden table with glasses of beer in different shades of amber.

Cisco Brewers on Nantucket has a load of beers to chose from, we count twenty one!   Open Tuesday-Friday 2:00 – 7:00 p.m., Saturday 12:00 – 7:00 p.m, and Sunday 12:00 – 6:00 p.m. Tours fill up quickly, so check their online schedule and plan accordingly.  If you just want to sample, then sample.  They will pour until it gets too crowded to pour any more!  There are events (food trucks!) almost daily but be sure to check their website first for a complete schedule.
