Cape Cod Beer History/Timeline

April 2004:
Cape Cod Beer started out in April of 2004, brewing at the old Hyport Brewing Company at the west end of Main Street in Hyannis.  We brewed there for almost 2 years…schlepping kegs across town to wash them in our storage space, and sold homebrew supplies out of our house in those early days…

   

Our first year we had 12 customers and one employee (Todd) and delivered beer in Beth’s mini van.  Our original system (now replaced by our current system) was a 7 bbl direct fired DME copper clad brewhouse with 3 x 15 bbl fermenters (still in use today)

    

Spring 2005:
Cape Cod Beer hired it’s first official employee (aside from Todd & Beth) in spring of 2005 to help Todd keep up with growing demand.

January 2006:
At the beginning of 2006 we moved out of the Hyport for good…
    
and moved into our new space (3,000 sq ft) at 1336 Phinney’s Lane, brewing on our original system, with a total of 3 full time employees. ( Todd, Brian and Blake ( former sales guy))

We got 2 more tanks delivered to help us meet demand.
