What better way to wave goodbye to the workweek and sail into your weekend adventure on Cape Cod than unwinding with the region’s best local beer? Let down your hair, put on your Get Nauti gear, and dive right into mermaid mode! Beat the traffic and wander to a place where there’s a vacation in every pint.
Happy hour doesn’t have to start at five pm; it’s summertime! At Cape Cod Beer you can go ahead and get nauti--let yourself off the hook from 3:00-6:00 for “Farmers Market Meets Happy Hour”. To get there, just follow our fins to 1336 Phinneys Lane in Hyannis on a Friday, and enjoy live music while you sip, shop, and snack in style. Whether you only have a cocktail hour to spare, or you’ve got time to chill, here’s a little tool kit to guide you along.
What To Wear: Keep It Casual
I’m a beach bum at heart, so it’s tee-shirts, tank tops, cut-offs, and flip flops for this landlocked mermaid. Though I may be a beach bum, I still like to dress to impress, and Mermaids on Cape Cod has me covered with their entire Get Nauti collection. I’ll rock a tank top over my bathing suit on beach days, wear a cute cami underneath for a family cookout, or just throw on my V-neck tee for a trip to the brewery. When it comes time for those chilly Cape Cod nights, my long-sleeve Get Nauti shirt is a beach-bag must have. And to be totally honest, I don’t usually leave home without my Eliza B. mermaid flip-flops since they’re the most durable pair I’ve owned on my journey as a land person.

First: Satisfy Your Thirst
Whether you’re a Ale gale or you prefer something a lil’ lighter, Cape Cod Beer boasts an impressive selection of brews and other adult beverages. Yes, there are options for the kiddos too. You can grab a drink and chill in the outdoor beer garden, under the beer tent, or wander off and explore. It’s a brewery experience that will earn you bragging rights with the beer lovers in your life (you’ll want to have proof… so take some to go!).
As for my drink of choice? I’m a bit biased when it comes to my favorite beer; I do like to keep it light. I’ll take a Beach Blonde Ale. (The tap is a mermaid- nuff said)
Cape Cod Beer hosts some of the best local bakers, creators, crafters, farmers, florist, cooks, and of course-Official Mermaids on Cape Cod lifestyle gear. You’ll definitely find yourself a take-home treasure. As soon as you make your way through the parking lot local vendors and artisans can be seen proudly displaying their very unique gifts, souvenirs, memorabilia, and fashion items.
Since I’m obsessed and own so much Official Mermaid Gear, (I even became a brand rep #humblebrag) I opted for awesome additions to my summer arm candy; the super cute and colorful Cape Hook Designs bracelet, and a Nautically Northern Cuff bracelet, designed with custom coordinates to help you show off what means the most to you (Bonus: each cuff is hand stamped, which makes each bracelet unique). The perfect gems for a Cape Cod Wandering Mermaid!
Chillax & Mingle
Once your fins are full of goodies, it’s time to wind down, relax, and mingle. If you brought your squad, challenge them to play a game of Cape Cod Corn Hole, or park yourself down in an Adirondack chair with some wicked good Cape Cod Kettle Corn and take it all in. Don’t forget to ask to take a tour of the brewery—it’s truly a sight to sea! You may even find out some fun facts and learn about how your beer was born.
I mostly wanted to meet new peeps and shop local because I have a passion to support small business, and because I truly believe a sustainable community must live in unity. Like many of you Mermaids I’m trying my best to offset my carbon footprint and I support and admire anyone else on that same journey!
