Hyannis MA, April 10, 2017: For the first time Cape Cod Beer is releasing their popular Summer Ale in 16 ounce cans. The brewery will package and label the beer right in its Hyannis facility. The labels feature a photo of hydrangea flowers and the boardwalk at Long Beach in Centerville. The seasonal favorite will be available in hundreds of restaurants and package stores on Cape Cod and beyond.

Cape Cod Beer has been steadily expanding its can offerings to include seasonal brews and limited edition specialties, with Summer Ale as the newest edition to the former. The label features Cape Cod’s signature flower in honor of the 10-day Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival, held in July, which raises money for more than a dozen Cape-based non-profits. Cape Cod Beer is the exclusive sponsor of the Hydrangea Festival Cocktail Trail which features hydrangea-inspired cocktail creations at restaurants and venues across Cape Cod.
“When we were approached about the Cape Cod Hydrangea Fest we were excited to be part of an event that celebrates the beauty of Cape Cod while also helping non-profits that improve the quality of life in our community. We wanted to help get the word out and using thousands of our cans distributed all over Cape Cod was a way we could do that. The Cocktail Trail adds another element of fun to the event and gives our restaurants and bars a way to participate too.”
~ Beth Marcus, Business Manager.
Last year at the Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival, the 84 participating gardens drew in more than $52,000 for 18 non-profit organizations.
