Great location and nice space, both indoors and outdoors. Their beer is good, not great. Food is nice for brewery/pub food. I’ve been there twice now. This year our server was nice but not impressive. Waited a loooong time to even be greeted. The rest of the experience was the same. Still enjoyed the visit overall.

Visited over the 4th of July weekend. Place was extremely busy, but our wait was less then the super friendly hostess had told us.
menu had a little bit of everything associated with a pub,
pretty fair beer selection besides what was brewed there.
food was really good and our waitress was exceptional, wait for food was a bit long but they were really busy.
Nice setting and there is a tavern called Jailhouse Tavern attached to the brewery. we will defiantly go back.

I picked up a Day Sail Session IPA to go with an old friend. The atmosphere was festive and we ran into old friends. It has a hometown vibe. The service was excellent.

Visited on the Sunday after Thanksgiving with Tracey and Bob. Not a bad place with plenty of games and helpful service. Practically empty. Had a 6 beer flight including 2 beers we had tried previously. Did not make any other buys. The fact that it is local is a plus.

Do yourself a favor, go to Hog Island Brewery if you're on the Cape, it's great place, great vibe, nice set of beers albeit limited selection. The Pale Ale was great, picked up a 32 oz can, love this place!

Went to Hog Island last during our beer tour while on vacation because of their food. However, we arrived around 3:50 in the afternoon and they told us that the kitchen was closed because the night cook never showed up. Otherwise, the beer was average the service was ok. Need to revisit because I was a little disappointed at the fact that the kitchen was closed so early.

This place is pleasantly large for a start up. It is an extension of an existing restaurant but there is no interior connection between the two. There are many long picnic tables in the center of the room while the perimeter has many free games to play (ping ping, foos ball, etc.). They also have a beautiful grassy outdoor area to hang out. This leads to a diverse crowd of families, young couples, and curious beer aficionados like me.

Alas, the brewery (only eight weeks when I visited) only had three original beers on tap. Note: There were several other beers available from the other bar in the room. They were good but not exceptional. The service was limited to going to a bar and ordering the beer. This fit the atmosphere of the place. While I didn't try the food, I was told there were typical bar type munchies.

Located behind the Jailhouse Tavern with plenty of parking. The brewery has 2 bars; one serves their beer and the other serves guest beers, wine and liquor. Their beer is available in either 4oz pours ($2) or 18oz pints ($7). Pints were served in plastic cups. Food is limited to appetizers, which were pretty good. The outdoor seating area is nicely adorned with lawn chairs and corn hole game setups. The indoor seating area is spacious, containing communal style seating, a few couches and ping pong tables, shuffleboard, a stick hockey table and a ring hook toss.
Overall, a great place to visit. I was there in the afternoon and observed a considerable amount of an après beach crowd and families "kid friendly". I was told by the bartender that they got good sized crowds in the evenings.
I definitely plan on visiting again when I'm in the area.
