You know how you wander into a random new place, thinking about “Well, it can’t be all bad, eh?” and you realize that it’s actually pretty awesome? That’s the Cape Ann Brewing Co. in Gloucester. I ambled in with a compatriot, looking for lunch. I figured, being Gloucester, I’d get some fish and chips. Alas, there was no fish to be had. Irony? Perhaps. So I got a hamburger instead, which was delicious, but was amazingly not as impressive as the potato chips that came with it. They were freshly fried there at the brewery, with a delicious crunch and flavor that I hadn’t experienced in store chips. Thick, wavy, crunchy, and an excellent potato flavor.
They were, perhaps, better than the hamburger.
Oh, and they’ve got beer too, I suppose. I hear that’s good.
