What is your signature product?
Basically all of our beers are our signature; our most popular beer is our rudders blond rock. Also our fish cakes are pretty popular around here and our lobsters in a shell because we have a live tank here.
Where do you hope to see this business in the next couple of years?
This business grows every day. It gets busier and busier every year and it’s great to have the boat back which really helps. Were hoping to grow more during the entire year; were extremely busy in the summer and then we tend to slow down in the winter but we’ve been pretty lucky the past couple winters because more people have been coming out. We try to do different events and were trying to keep a local heritage going around here.
Were hoping the brewery will just keep going, we’re in no hopes to expand it because that’s our little niche; the little microbrewery that started in Yarmouth. We’re one of the top 5 that have started craft beer in the microbrewery industry. We’re quite happy where we are, we’re just trying to bring more entertainment, and we have a lot of entertainment during the winter. We always bring different entertainers every week; we have entertainment 3 times a week. We want to grow but we’re okay and just happy to be able to support the locals and happy the locals support us.
