Hog Island Beer Company
The Massachusetts’ Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission lists Orleans’ Hog Island Beer Company as the oldest operating pub brewery on Cape Cod. The Lower Cape brewery opened in the summer of 2016. Hog Island has an extensive menu comprised of buffalo wings, lobster rolls and more to complement its beers. With a European atmosphere and West Coast infusions Hog Island has something for everyone. Games and abundant picnic tables populate the adjacent outdoor space, while the inside offers a stage for musical performances. Hog Island was founded by two friends who held a contest to find a third brewer. The Orleans’ brewery looked south and added a Chatham resident. The brewery bills itself as the ‘outermost brewery’ on Cape Cod. Soon, the brewery hopes to begin offering tours of its facility.
Hog Island’s Outermost IPA is the brewery’s flagship brew. The bicoastal drink brings together the flavors of the East and West coasts. Hopped with Citra Hops, the beer provides a refreshing and tropical taste.
Hog Island hosts the yearly Roots & Blues Festival. The mid-September celebration brings some of the genre’s biggest names to Orleans. The festival raises money for Friends of Nauset Beach, a non-profit that works to preserve the beach.
