5 Bartlett Farm Rd
Nantucket, MA 02584 United States
Thirty miles off the coast of Cape Cod is the small island of Nantucket that is the home to Nantucket Vineyard, Cisco Brewers and Triple Eight Distillery.
Nantucket Vineyard was established in 1981 by Dean and Melissa Long. Nantucket Vineyard began out of a love for both farming and drinking wine on the far away island. The vineyard started with 10 acres of assorted grape varieties which reached maturity in 1986 when the first vintages were produced.
In 1992, Dean and Melissa, met Randy and Wendy Hudson—who moved into the loft over their winery and began lending a hand to the Long’s wine endeavors. Wendy had a history of homebrewing beer, and she turned Randy onto it, which led to the birth of Cisco Brewers. The brewery was outside in the Longs’ backyard—which made it, officially, America’s only outdoor (commercial) brewery. Due to increasing demand for their beer, in 1995 a structure was built that became Cisco Brewers which serves as its home to this day. In 1997, a copper still was acquired to produce spirit for Nantucket Vineyard's fortified wine program, which marked the birth of Triple Eight Distillery.

For its second quarter-century, Cisco Brewers is debuting a new look and two new beers. The Nantucket, Massachusetts-based brand, which was acquired by Craft Brew Alliance (CBA) in 2018, has refreshed its branding and packaging with the launch of a new summer seasonal offering, Summer Rays golden ale, and a new year-round New England-style IPA,… Read more »
In honor of its 25th anniversary, Cisco Brewers is unveiling an updated logo and new packaging design for its full lineup of seasonal and year-round beers.
Cisco Brewers is celebrating New England’s strong water culture with its brand new spring seasonal Pint Break Double IPA. The big, hoppy, and fruit-forward India Pale Ale clocks in at 8.7% ABV and 60 IBU. Pint Break Double IPA will be available in 4-packs of 16-ounce cans and on draft across the Northeast.
Cisco Brewers is excited to share two new IPAs with more fans across the Northeast, offering Getaway IPA and Crantucket Brut Rosé IPA in 12 oz. can 12-packs and 6-pack bottles.
Craft Brew Alliance hopes its marketing efforts in the first part of the year built a “strong foundation” for continued growth throughout the rest of 2019, CEO Andy Thomas said during Thursday’s first quarter earnings call with investors and analysts.
Cisco Brewers is back by popular demand with a second season of its “Island Vibes” pop-up featuring more award-winning craft beer and wines, more live music and even more food trucks. The larger Cisco pop-up space lands in Seaport this spring; beer lovers, families, and fur-babies can enjoy “Island Time” six days a week with live music daily.
Industry headwinds, brewery acquisitions, the emerging cannabis sector, and the seemingly never ending battle between big and small beer makers were the focus of Brewbound’s most-read stories of 2018.
Craft Brew Alliance’s nearly four-year-long strategy of partnering with smaller brands has officially culminated with three separate purchase agreements that, combined, will cost the company less than $45 million. CBA, a publicly traded craft brewery group headquartered in Portland, Ore., today announced that it would wholly acquire Massachusetts’ Cisco Brewers, North Carolina’s Appalachian Mountain Brewery and Miami’s Wynwood Brewing.
Cisco Brewers is bringing a slice of Nantucket to Boston and keeping summer going with a new pop-up beer garden in Seaport this fall that will feature its award-winning craft beer and wine, paired with raw bar and tacos from Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar.
Cisco Brewers is bringing Gripah IPA, a citrusy IPA bursting with ruby red grapefruit, to beer drinkers across the Northeast in six-pack bottles and 12-pack cans. The beer was first brewed in 2015 to celebrate Cisco’s 20th anniversary and was a big hit on N
Cisco Brewers is bringing its Madaquet Double IPA, a piney, citrusy New England style Double IPA full of character and flavor, to the mainland for the first time ever.
Amid increasing competition from thousands of fast-growing startup breweries, Oregon’s Craft Brew Alliance — which makes and markets the Kona, Widmer, Redhook, Omission and Square Mile Cider brands — is fine-tuning its go-to market strategy. Despite a somewhat lethargic 2015 where net sales increased just two percent, CEO Andy Thomas and other CBA executives who spoke to investors during last week’s earnings call, remained optimistic about the company’s position as it approaches the end of this year’s first quarter.
A first-time collaboration beer between three pioneering American craft breweries that are part of Craft Brew Alliance (“CBA”) (NASDAQ: BREW) will be tapped at the 21st Annual Kona Brewers Festival on March 12, 2016. New England cranberries, North Carolina honey and Hawaiian cacao come together in Konambisco Amber Ale, which was inspired when the craft brewers behind Kona Brewing Co. of Kailua-Kona, HI, Appalachian Mountain Brewery of Boone, NC, and Cisco Brewers of Nantucket, MA. came up with the idea to collaborate on a beer that celebrates the extraordinary places each brewery calls home.
