SundayBrew spotlights Cape Cod Beer, which came from humble beginnings in the spring of 2004. The original location was the old facilities of the Hyport Brewing Company at the west end of Main Street in Hyannis. Cape Cod Beer was brewed there for a little less than 2 years. Their original system was a 7 bbl direct fired DME copper clad brewhouse with 3 x 15 bbl fermenters. At the beginning of 2006 the brewery moved to 1336 Phinney’s Lane, Hyannis. Today they offer guided tours of the brewery as well as fresh growler refills if you happen to be lucky enough to make it out there.
Cape Cod Beer offers 9 distinct and delicious ales. Their year round brews consist of their own Cape Cod versions of a North American Amber Ale (Cape Cod Red), an India Pale Ale (Cape Cod IPA), and an American Golden Ale (Cape Cod Beach Blonde Ale). Cape Cod also have a number of seasonal selections which include their Hefe-Weizen (Cape Cod Summer), German Ale (Cape Cod Harvest), Brown Porter (Cape Cod Porter), Dunkel-Weizen (Cape Cod Dunkel), Amber Ale with Cranberry, Clove and Orange (Berry Merry Holiday Ale), Old Ale aka Strong Ale (Old Man Winter).
