Craft Beer Delivered: Cape becoming a bona fide craft beer destination
For many years there was just one craft brewery on Cape Cod. Today there are three. And by the end of this summer there will likely be five, making Cape Cod a bona fide craft beer destination, with tasting rooms running the length of the peninsula, from Mashpee to Orleans.
It all started with Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis. And Cape Cod Beer started, way back in 2004, with an out-of-work couple who loved beer and Cape Cod. On their first trip together, somewhere around 1995, Beth Marcus says, her now-husband Todd took her to the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado. Recalling their pursuit of the American dream back then, she said: “We went to college, and we all got these high-paying corporate jobs, and we were miserable. We called it the race to the bottom.” Once the layoffs began, it was time to do something they loved.
In its first year Cape Cod Beer had 12 customers and one employee (Todd); they delivered beer in Beth’s minivan, typically with their two sons strapped into car seats in the backseat. Today the company employs 20 people and occupies 10,000 square feet in Hyannis with a 30-barrel brewhouse and tasting room. It brews four beers year-round — Beach Blonde Ale, Red, IPA, and Porter — in addition to seasonal specialties such as Hot Blonde, infused with hot peppers, and Christmas in July, an oak barrel-aged British-style strong ale bottled in champagne bottles and available only at the brewery from July 25 until it’s gone.
