On Tuesday, October 30th, Cape Cod Beer was named one of 59 Manufacturers of the Year by the House Manufacturing Caucus in a ceremony held on the steps of the Massachusetts Statehouse. Rep. Julian Cyr nominated Cape Cod Beer for the honor.

“Cape Cod is often known for its hospitality and service sectors. So for us, it was meaningful to be recognized as a manufacturer from Cape Cod. We’re proud to be contributing to that sector of our economy.”  –Todd Marcus, Cape Cod Beer Brewmaster & Co-Founder

In a signal that brewing is becoming an increasing force in manufacturing, Cape Cod Beer was one of three breweries to receive the award. Medusa Brewing of Hudson and Slumbrew of Somerville were also among the award recipients.

“More than 10% of the state’s GDP comes from the manufacturing sector. And more than 250,000 people are employed by people who are ‘making it’ in Massachusetts. We’re delighted to say that the Brew Crew at Cape Cod Beer is part of that accomplishment.”

– Beth Marcus, Cape Cod Beer Business Manager & Co-Founder
