Year-round ales include the Wandering Haze, a juicy and delicious IPA that will brighten your taste buds with notes of citrus and mango, and the Grey Lady, a wheat ale named after the often-foggy New England island of Nantucket where it was first brewers with lemon peel, chamomile, and coriander.
Check out the Shark Tracker, a golden, crisp, and light-bodied lager developed in partnership with OCEARCH, a leading non-profit that monitors white sharks in the Atlantic Ocean. Proceeds from every can of Shark Tracker go to fund OCEARCH’s stewardship of the seas around Nantucket and beyond.
It’s not all about beer at Cisco Brewers. Cocktail lovers will enjoy a line of unique spirits from Triple Eight Distillery, located at Cisco Brewers. A line of fruit-infused vodkas includes the Blueberry Vodka, featuring a heavy dose of Nantucket blueberries for a sweet flavor and a smooth finish.
For the perfect beach day, the line of canned Nantucket Craft Cocktails is just what you need. Two of their classic flavors, Nantucket Cran and Nantucket Blue, are currently available. Stay tuned for Nantucket Tequila & Lime and Nantucket Grapefruit in 2021.
The distillery also offers a Nor’Easter Bourbon, Hurricane Rum, and Gale Force Gin, as well as Notch single-malt whiskey.
Cisco Brewers began as the Nantucket Vineyard. In the beginning, the grapes were grown right here on Nantucket. Due to the unpredictable seasons, the winery now sources grapes from Sonoma and Washington state, ages them in French Oak barrels, and serves them here on Nantucket.
