6 years ago we set our sights on opening a brewery,
the big question was where? After giving it a tremendous amount of thought, we landed on the place we have all called home at one point or another – Cape Cod. Beer has been in our blood whether it was selling it, marketing it, making it or drinking it. To us, there is no better place to enjoy a cold one than on the shores of the most picturesque place on the planet. After forming the concept, we had one challenge – coming up with a name. It needed to be something that had a direct connection to our town, the lower Cape and the sea. After a paddleboard trip to the uninhabited Hog Island we knew we had found the place. Hog Island, located on Little Pleasant Bay in Orleans overlooks our famed Nauset Beach and the dune shacks that dot her coastline. It’s rumored that Captain Kidd buried treasure on the island, many have attempted to locate it – we feel we found it.
Cheers to liquid treasure!
Hog Island Beer Co. – built by locals, brewed by locals, drunk by locals.
