At 5.5% ABV and a well balanced 30 IBU’s, this smooth lager offers a toasty malt flavor followed by a dry, hoppy finish.

Fisherman’s IPA is an India Pale Ale handcrafted by the docks of America’s oldest seaport, Gloucester, Massachusetts. Made with the finest imported 2-row barley and a healthy helping of Chinook and Sorachi Ace hops, this is a remarkable well-balanced version of this style and should not be missed.
Our winter seasonal, the Fisherman’s Navigator is a German-style doppel-bock of exceptional quality, flavors and body. With a toasty biscuit-like malt backbone, it’s unlike any beer you’ve had while managing to remain strictly within a centuries old style.
Fisherman’s Pumpkin Stout is a dark stout accentuated by flavors of the Autumn season. Using real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, the Cape Ann Brewing Company took a fresh take at the common fall seasonal. This rich dark stout offers an inviting pumpkin spice aroma that gives way to the delicate essence of real pumpkin.
Throughout history, oysters and stouts have been a considered a perfect pairing. Oyster Stout takes this classic combination further with our own version of a style whose history has been lost in time. Using hundreds of crushed oyster shells in our mash, the result was a roasty stout with a rich body and smooth mouth-feel to go with it’s unique flavor and aroma.
The mother of all hoppy beers, the Double-IPA is loved by many and feared by more. Going against our mission to make balanced beers, a healthy portion of Cascade and Citra hops were used to create a smoothly bitter double IPA with big and lingering floral aromas.
Oktoberfest is a Bavarian festival dating from 1810 to honor the marriage of the
Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, to Princess Therese of Bavaria on October 12, 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. Today the festival is held during the sixteen days leading up to the first Sunday in October. Oktoberfest beer is traditionally a Marzen style Lager; here at Cape Ann Brewing we put our own spin on this traditional style. Incorporating a step mash into the mashing process giving this beer a wonderfully smooth mouth feel; as well as using 20lb’s of heather tips and flowers in the boil adding nice herbal and floral notes to our Oktoberfest offering.
