What’s Happening at Cisco Brewers this Summer?

This is probably a question on a lot of people’s minds this summer. The brewery is a crowd favorite all summer long and is one of the first places visitors head to no matter what day of the week it is or even what time of day it is. With its regular live music schedule, fun events, food trucks, raw bar, and extensive beer, wine, and spirit options, it’s not surprising that it’s packed every single day. Chances are, you already know all of that, but are wondering how to get your brewery fix this summer. 

Luckily, the creative folks at Cisco Brewers have come up with several solutions to social distancing. Their Instagram page is the best place to keep up with regular updates as phase two of the state’s pandemic response unfolds throughout the summer. 


Curbside Pickup

Not only did the team create a curbside pickup system, they created an entirely new website to make getting the Cisco experience as easy as possible. On the new site, they’re selling curated “Survival Kits,” beer, wine, spirits, merchandise, and even their own hand sanitizer. You can pick these up Monday-Saturday between 11 am and 7 pm and Sundays from noon to 6 pm.

As of the start of July, the brewery is open for walk-ins only. They have done away with table reservations in order to “keep it fair and fun.” As you might expect, masks and social distancing are required when not at your table, so it’s important to come prepared. While the pace of the brewery might be a little slower this summer, it will still have the unique vibe that made it so special in the first place. Expect to see the same friendly faces (behind masks), cute doggos on-leash, delicious food trucks, and positive vibes we all know and love.

Shop Cisco!

The clever folks at Cisco have moved the bulk of their retail store outside to the front entrance, so even if there is a line to get in, you can still make a purchase for your new favorite hat, t-shirt or belt. You name it, this shop probably has it.

From dog toys to Christmas ornaments, frisbees to bowties, we are loving the selection of Cisco-themed gear on display in the parking lot at 5 Bartlett Farm Road.

Bring the Brewery Home

If you’re looking for a mix of the first two options, this one is perfect for you. Cisco to Go can set a bar up in your very own backyard, so you can have the Cisco experience wherever you are on the island. Chances are, if you follow some of the advice in our post about How to Make the Most of Your Backyard, you won’t even know the difference. This program might change as the real brewery opens up, so check the Cisco to Go page or email to check availability. 

No matter how you Cisco this summer, one thing remains true: this summer is all about community. We’re all in this together and want to make the summer as fun, safe, and healthy as possible for everybody.
