See what’s brewing at these local breweries!
Well-known on Nantucket, the island’s Cisco Brewers is a mandatory stop for any beer enthusiast. Founded in 1995, the brewery has since founded Nantucket Vineyard and Triple Eight Distillery to offer a wide variety of alcoholic beverages to every consumer. In 2018, the brewery was purchased by the much larger and publicly traded craft brewing company, Craft Brew Alliance. Despite the new corporate ownership, Cisco’s five partners continue to run the brand. Cisco has grown to be able to distribute beer across a dozen states but now has a nation-wide reach with CBA’s backing.
The rhyming, English style Whale’s Tale Pale Ale is Cisco’s flagship creation. The name is a nod to the island’s storied whaling history. The amber-colored drink has a frothy head with a slight floral hops and a hint of malt taste present.
In August 2019, Cisco Brewers held a pop-up event in Boston’s Seaport District (where their new pop-up location can also be found) which benefited Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Memorial Fund, honoring Massachusetts service members lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.
