Gorgeous sunsets of Hull Gut and Boston, Mass. from the deck, handcrafted beers, and delicious seafood make the Sea Dog Brew Pub one of the hidden gems of Hull, Mass. Located on the end of A Street and so not on the tourist central Nantasket Ave strip, the Sea Dog Brew Pub is a local’s hangout and a boater’s paradise. Boaters can pull up to the Sunset Bay Marina.
This writer frequents the deck on warm spring and summer nights for the sunset and atmosphere. They are not open during the winter. Tonight the wind was picking up, but we stayed out on the deck. The Sea Dog Brew Pub has a variety of handcrafted beers, but we recommend the Sea Dog Blue Paw Blueberry (4.8%). Your friendly server will add blueberries to your pint. This sweet and refreshing nutty wheat ale pairs well with appetizers and seafood, and the blueberries will remind you of Maine. In fact, the original Sea Dog Brewing Company originated in Camden, Maine in 1993 by founder Pete Camplin, Sr.
According to a Boston Globe article, by Joan Wilder, “this restaurant, however, is not owned by the Portland-based microbrewery that owns the Maine outlets, but by four Boston-area partners who have a licensing agreement with the brewery to sell its beer and borrow its menu.”
We had the fish tacos, three lightly fried haddock tacos with coleslaw and a lime aioli sauce that is fresh and tangy. We also sampled their signature burger, the Barney burger, with sweet potato fries. Barney is the Sea Dog’s Great Pyrenees mascot who guards over the brew kettle, figuratively speaking.
The cost of the Sea Dog’s meals is comparable to other pubs in the area, at $10.99 for the fish tacos and $11.99 for the Barney burger with sweet potato fries as of this article’s publication. Both are delightful, and the atmosphere is well worth it. Other menu offerings include the Sea Dog Mac N Cheese, New England Style Fish and Chips, a Fresh Maine Lobster Roll, and the Lobster B.l.t tacos.
Specials during the week include Taco Tuesdays (half priced tacos), Wing Wednesday, $6.00 burgers and flatbread pizzas on Thursdays (customer appreciation), trivia night, and Caribbean brunch on Sunday.
For a million dollar view, fresh seafood, and handcrafted beers, this family friendly pub is worth your dollars.
