Heavy tourism areas usually have their own food or drink that people remember year-round and can't wait to have during the next visit.
Cape Cod Beer, brewed in Hyannis, is such a beverage. The brewery (motto: "A Vacation In Every Pint") opened in March, then found its product so successful it had trouble meeting demand during the summer.
Technology to the rescue: Three new fermentation vessels have been installed, doubling the facility's production capacity. Two tanks came from China and one from the Czech Republic. They were ordered some time ago, but there have been shortages in the stainless steel industry, creating a tight market.
Beer Advocate.com has a thorough report on the Cape Cod operation.
