Cape Ann Brewing Co. is Bringing on the Cans

Jeremy Goldberg, owner of Cape Ann Brewing Co. and his incredible crew have just opened their new canning facility on Whittemore Street in Gloucester…and it is gorgeous.  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything so shiny and clean!  I don’t claim to know much about the process of brewing beer, but I can say that their new facility and equipment are incredibly impressive.

On Friday evening they welcomed their “Mug Club” members to tour their new digs and I was happy to tag along.  To use their own words, “Fisherman’s beer — whose bold flavor and character reflect the spirit and courage of the sailors of the North Atlantic fishing fleet — is a tribute to hard work and a salute to friendships that endure.”  Well, it is clear that is true, when in the presence of this group of friends/co-coworkers.  They were excited, enthusiastic, and, as they should be, very proud of what they are accomplishing.

Check out their website for more information

Be on the lookout for the news cans…each design proudly showcasing the Fishermen’s Memorial Statue…and don’t forget to stop by the Pub at Cape Ann Brewing for some great eats, entertainment, and a seat on Gloucester’s Harbor before the nice weather is behind us!

Awesome things happening locally!  Great work, Cape Ann Brewing Co.!

Do you Love Great Bird Paintings and Birding?

Trident gallery opening_winter meditations

Then definitely go check out the Winter Meditations exhibit at Trident Gallery, 189 Main Street.  The Opening last night was great and the work is exceptional and very exciting to be able to see right here on Main Street.  The space is wonderful and I’m just sorry it took me so long to check it out.  A fabulous addition to Gloucester’s art scene.

From Friday, January 24th, through Sunday, March 2d, Trident Gallery is proud to host a loan from the Massachusetts Audubon Museum of American Bird Art of more than 30 prints, paintings, and miniature sculptures by the renowned and important artists John James Audubon, Milton Avery, Andy Warhol, Allen James King, Robert Verity Clem, Lars Jonsson, and others. All the works of art depict bird species present on Cape Ann in winter, and their exhibition constitutes a new extension to the Cape Ann Winter Birding Weekend (Friday–Sunday, 31 January – 2 February) a festival which celebrates the winter bird life of Cape Ann, especially those Arctic species rarely encountered farther south. Sponsored by Mass Audubon and the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, the event draws several hundred participants to hear expert presentations and embark on bus tours and a boat trip to see the birds. A birding guide for the event in past years, Director Swift has this year orchestrated the festival’s new art component at Trident Gallery.

Throughout Winter Meditations, the public is invited to respond with commentary and with contributions of their own winter meditations at TridentGallery.com/WinterMeditations (not yet live). Director Swift will share selected Meditations submitted by the public within the gallery.

Works of art by Gabrielle Barzaghi, Winston Swift Boyer, Charlie Carroll, Susan Erony, Dennis Flavin, Eileen Mueller, Joe Poirier, and Lynn Swigart will be on display during the entirety of Winter Meditations. In the final phase, Persephone’s Return, additional works of art by these and other Trident Gallery artists will take the place of the departing Mass Audubon winter bird art.

Gran Prix of Gloucester Video from Day 1 – Look out Joey, lots of bikes around town

If you missed today’s psycho-cross excitement, this video will give you a feel for what you can expect tomorrow.  You really can’t miss this international sporting spectacle, complete with beer, food and plenty of fun for kids.  So bring the family up to Stage Fort Park tomorrow.  You’ll be glad you did.

Joey, you might want to listen to what Christy from PeopleforBikes.org has to say about putting more people on more bicycles more often — especially in Gloucester!

I ran into Thom Falzarano who shot more race footage.  Look for that coming soon.

After a day of cyclocross you may want to warm up a bit.  (Can you believe it? John and I were surfing last week!).  Plenty of good options for catching great live music (in warm, dry venues) from Beethoven to Ska to 80s to Zappa to Funk, Jazz & good ol’ Rock n Roll!  See tonight’s full lineup of live music in Gloucester and Cape Ann here.
