Cape Ann Brewing Company is an award-winning, family-owned, micro-brewery and the home of Fisherman's Brew. It’s Brewpub features the brewery’s award-winning craft beers brewed on-site, with 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 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.

Our first experience of clam chowder! Super friendly staff and if we hadn't been driving to our destination would have loved to stay sample the local beers, especially coming from Belgium! Original and creative restaurant and nice friendly atmosphere.

There were 8 of us who went in for a mid afternoon lunch and we all had great pub food and really, really good fresh-brewed beers. Although there was not a table big enough for us to all sit together when we first got there,...More

I really enjoyed my time at Cape Ann Brewpub. Cape Ann is near the Gloucester Center, walking distance to many attractions. Parking is an issue, there are not many lots nearby, and street parking is available for a fee. The pub it's self is awesome,...More

Awesome central location in Gloucester. The food we had was quite good. Tried the pretzel and had the tuna salad. Parking available on the street outside. The beer is quite good also.

The establishment makes its own craft beer. It also serves a wide variety of pub food. The clam chowder was huge and the fried shrimp were fresh. Worth the try in lively Gloucester

sorry, no...Unless it's a service pet Gloucester has not gotten on board with being pet friendly in restaurants. You can tie up your dog right next to the deck however.
