Barnstable Brewing (Barnstable)
Cape Cod Beer (Hyannis)
Google Review: “Numerous beer choices here! I tried the IPA and the Dunkel. Both were delicious! Plenty of seating indoors and outside. They provide you a menu for you to place your order and then bring it to your table. Highly recommended and even grabbed some cans to enjoy back at the [rental]!”
Cape Cod Brew Bus (Yarmouth)
This 3.5-hour guided tour brings you to three of the Cape’s best breweries where you will enjoy beer tastings at each location. A fresh locally made sandwich lunch is included in the tour. On this route, you will visit Barnstable Brewing, Naukabout Brewery and Taproom, and Cape Cod Beer.
Cape Cod Foodie Tours (Barnstable)
Cape Cod Foodie Tours is the foremost walking food tour on Cape Cod. We operate seasonally from late spring through early fall. As an insider on the Cape Cod food scene a desire was born to create an attraction supporting and showcasing local culinary businesses. As a result we have answered that age old question, from tourists and locals alike: “where should we eat?”
Hyannis boasts over 50 owner operated restaurants and food related businesses. The main streets and waterfront hold many interesting tales. For instance there were 150 sea captains who called Hyannis home during the 1800’s! And the “wash ashores” contribute to the burgeoning ethnic food scene! Our goal is to have you experience a broad sampling of freshly prepared foods. These tastings, from the varied culinary scene, will be enjoyed while walking the historic and scenic streets of Hyannis.
Cape Cod Winery (East Falmouth)
Less than three miles from the ocean, Cape Cod Winery is located on Oxbow Road in the neighborhood of East Falmouth. Much like the beach, our winery is a place of relaxation and we invite you to join us under our large post & beam tent placed over crushed seashells to come sip and savor the flavors of Cape Cod. With over nine different varieties of wine to choose from there is surely something for everyone, whether it is our beloved Rosé Mermaid Water or a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc. Our wines will bring you that tranquil Cape Cod feeling.
First Crush Winery (Harwich)
The vision and the passion of First Crush Winery is under the proud direction of Frank Puzio, a retired local eye doctor with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry. Aside from a rewarding day job, Dr. Frank has been evolving his enology experiences and skills for more than 30 years. The mission for First Crush Winery is simple; to produce exquisite wines that will turn the heads of the most discriminating, utilizing the finest fruit in the land while sparing no expense on equipment and technology.
Hog Island Beer Co. (Orleans)
Facebook Review: “The whole atmosphere is very inviting! Hog Island has done a great job with socially distanced tables amidst a festive vibe. Entertainment is excellent, especially G. Love. Service and food are perfect. It’s a great spot for music, food, outdoor dining, and drinks. The co-owner Mike circulated often when we were there, always a nice touch!”
TapTastings Brew Tours & Delivery (Mashpee)
Real tour review: “We did a TapTastings tour yesterday with six friends and had a wonderful time. It was beautifully organized by our hosts, Leslie and Karen, and full of laughter and fun, not to mention good beer, from start to finish. We learned lots about beer and its production as we traveled from one venue to another, and had fun with a raffle and quizzes that gave prizes. Guests are provided with a goodie bag full of snacks, water and TapTastings mementos at the start. Prior to arrival at each brewery, we were given a sheet that listed the beer offerings there, with a description of each to help us make a selection of the 3- 5oz pours that are included in the tour. The tour can include any brewery in the area, and they were all about customizing the tour…. e.g. we ended the tour with an early dinner, then were dropped off at our home where the your started. We had a great time, and would definitely recommend TapTastings excursions and hosts Leslie and Karen, if you’re looking for a fun way to spend the day with family/friends!”

We are a winery and distillery and we have tastings, wine by the glass, cocktails and a food truck.
