Owner description: Who are we? We are just about the coolest place on planet Earth. Having never personally traveled to other parts of the galaxy, we can't quite say "in all the Milky Way" but we're pretty confident that we would make the top 10. Here on Nantucket we have a Winery, Brewery, and Distillery. Nantucket Vineyard was the first arm of our business opening in the early 1980's as a small project of the Long Family. After a few years, Winery employees ended up falling in love with the wine and each other, and voila! - Cisco Brewers was born on the Hudson's stovetop in 1995. Whispers of a brewery floated on the Nantucket wind, catching the ear of a few people, including a Mr. Harman. Using the previously tested and proven formula of starting a business from another business, Winery and Brewery employees enjoyed a few glasses / pints (respectively) together and hatched the idea for Triple Eight Distillery in 2000. All three businesses are constantly evolving, and we now produce a wide variety of world-class wines, beers, and spirits. Come out and enjoy our Nantucket haven- just prepare yourself in case your mind blows up from all the awesomeness. Open everyday year-round, dog and kid friendly!

Beer, wine, food, and liquor available. All ages welcome. We had a fun afternoon, the six of us, noshing, sampling the beers, and watching people have fun. You can enjoy yourself at a leisurely pace.

Great day to try the local brews and listen to some local music. The day we were there the Pizza oven guy was making fresh to order pizza's...delicious. Then the Lobster truck was cooking up Calamari and other seafood. We stayed about 2 hours. You can eat the food there or bring in a picnic lunch from Bartlett's farm. All is good and all is welcome.

Good place to taste both the beer and distilled spirits, and a variety of food options (food truck/vendor style. Rustic, but something different after spending a few hours on the beach. They have some very good craft beers, and on a good weather day it was nice to sit out and enjoy beer, music and the sun. But if the weather is off, better to find the beers on tap in town. Free samples of beer, wine, and liquor, but if you want more than a sample you pay.

Family oriented, free admission and free shuttle service to and from town! This is a real treat. As soon as you arrive, you will hear live music playing. Choose the wine bar, the vodka bar or the craft beer tent. Order fresh seafood from the row boat filled with ice. Shrimp, oysters, clams and the best guacamole! Lobster rolls and such from the truck. The cocktails were great, the day gorgeous and the music fab. Families everywhere. Enjoyment is what's being served here!
