Made a day trip up north to Gloucester this afternoon. Walked around the area and did some shopping and decided to go to Cape Ann Brewing for lunch.
The atmosphere is casual with a good sized bar with TV's and a bunch of picnic tables. Not sure how I feel about the communal picnic table set up. I think it can be hit or miss. Things were pretty busy during this Saturday afternoon. It's a fun bar to hang out. They have board games and darts too.
You can get a seat by the window. You'll notice a couple hundred lobster traps obstructing what would otherwise be a nice view.
Food was really good. Started off with Gloucester Stuffed Clams and had the Fish and Chips for lunch.
Beer draft selections included about 11 options. Beers offered were IPA, Fresh Hopped IPA, Honey Pilsner, Coffee Pumpkin Stout (awesome), Greenhorn Double, Tea Party, Rock Porter, Navigator, Bavarian Wheat and Fisherman's Brew. The beers I had were fresh and tasty.
Check this place out if you are in the area.

My Ladies and I swung by here today for lunch, after a not-so-successful whale watch.
The Pub was easily found on the waterfront, a short walk from our whale watch boat. Gorgeous day that it was (and is!), we scored seats outside on the patio, under the canopy. Inside, past the hostess station, was a long bar running to the rear along the left. Many picnic tables were set about, of the big, solid, polished variety. Place had lots of light, solid wood, and it was fairly bright. A very convivial setting. The patio had more big-ass picnic tables, almost all in the shade. The view out over the harbor is superb! On tap were about 10 biers, from barleywine to amber, koelsch to pilsner, milk stout to DIPA. The two I quaffed (DIPA and barleywine) were very solid.
Our server, and the whole staff, were exceedingly friendly and accomodating, from the basics of getting our food and drinks, to taking some pictures and chatting about the area. Food was solid pub food (had 2 steak subs, a burger, and chicken tenders, plus nachos). Tasty, though a tad pricy, but consider the setting. All in all, a very pleasant experience! Zum Wohl!
