I visited Cisco this past week on a Tuesday. My girlfriend and I took the one hour ferry ride from Hyannis to Nantucket, hopped on a Moped, and zoomed on over to the farm for a few drinks.
Cisco is basically a Brewery, Winery, and Distillery all in one. There are three huts selling the various products, that open up in-between with tons of seating and a really relaxing/chill setting. I stuck mainly to the brewery.
It looked like there were 20 or so beers on tap, but when I went to order, many of the offerings were not available. I still managed to try three brews, and loved just hanging out in the open space. It has a hippie/gypsy/eccentric/artsy type feel, without being pretentious.The beers were decent overall, but not anything incredible. They had merch for purchase and a bunch of their bottled and canned beer available as well.
We got there at around 2:00, so there wasn't any live music and the raw bar was just starting to set up.I'd recommend visiting if you have plans to spend some time on Nantucket, but I don't know if it's really worth going to on its own. We had a good time, but it is quite a trek.

Oh boy, did I have a good time at this place. I was staying on the mainland, so I took the ferry over to the island. From there, I took a cab up to the brewery. Before I decided to make this trip to Cisco, I checked out the website and learned that the brewery was also accompanied by a winery and distillery. Make sure you get some food in your system before you venture out, if you are attempting to visit all three sites. In the brewery, you can sample all of the beers available for $10, and you keep the glass. All beers available in pint form, as well as most being available to go in bottle form or growler. They have a rotating set of taps alongside their flagship brews to provide the locals that visit frequently a better shot at getting their hands on some of the more special offerings. Snacks are available in the brewery, and there are also some food trucks that are parked there on scheduled rotations. The place has live music regularly, and the outdoor area gives you a great look at all the farmland that produces the harvest to create all the beer and other goodies. The outdoor area is also great for kids and dogs, if you happen to have either with you. The bartenders were very informative at each place, and very friendly. Tours are available for $20 at 4pm daily, but that was too late for my return ferry ride so I passed on that one. Great time on our visit all around, and I am already looking forward to getting back to the island to visit once again.
