“Each year, I've shifted hops from the hot side over to the dry hop,” Brian explains, “and each year it's been in an attempt to stay a step ahead of Coastal.”

The Evolution of Snag & Drop

Triple IPAs are a fickle thing. The industry kind of keeps moving the goalpost on them, setting it just slightly farther out. Consumer’s tastes are constantly evolving, and CMBC is resolved to stay at the forefront.

Thankfully, Snag & Drop falls into that category.

How to Taste Beer

We all know how to drink beer. It’s pretty simple: you open the can and pour it into your waiting gullet. We all do it on a regular basis, and it brings us a certain amount of joy.

Okay. It brings us a lot of joy.

But there’s a little more to tasting beer than simply downing a can of Coastal Evacuation. How do the pros do it?

We sat down with two mega-pros — Brewers Mark Graves and Andrew Ewing — and a couple of freshly-canned tall boys of Snag & Drop — to find out what they do differently than the rest of us.

A beer like that sticks with you and takes you to a place and time that one yearns to go....

Press for The Topsail

It’s nice to get noticed.

You know, you’re walking down the street, and you see heads turn. Your YouTube video breaks a million views. Your boss gives you a hearty congratulations during the Monday meeting. Someone at Wednesday night karaoke says, “Hey. You have a lovely voice.”

Everyone enjoys getting noticed. And — hoo-ah! — the mainstream press has certainly taken notice of The Topsail, and we really couldn’t be more gratified.

...there’s a difference between getting a beer with “my colleagues, Batman and Robin” and getting a beer with “my colleagues, Batman, and Robin,” though either would be awesome....

Meet Jenna!

Our Events Team is one of the best in the business, but the very nature of their job means that we don’t get to see them very often. They’re out in the field, ensuring that revelers at our off-site events have as great a time as they possibly can while learning everything possible about our brews.

Case in point: Jenna Tesauro.

Jenna rocks. There’s really no other way to put it. She’s hilarious, she knows her beer, and she really knows how to get a Philly bar excited about a Tap Takeover.

When she’s not bringing all of her friends to some random bar in South Philly, she works in Academic Affairs at the Wharton School at UPenn. Swanky-swank. However, marshaling the future business leaders of America can make anyone need a cold beer after a long day.

Yet, her full-time jobby-job means that we get to see her far less frequently than we’d like. Thankfully, Jenna makes it down to the brewery for some of our major on-site events, but even that isn’t often enough.

And, frankly, we wouldn’t be terribly surprised to find out that she sometimes sends her twin sister, Danielle, because, aside from their hair length, they’re freaking identical.

At any rate, meet Jenna!

When I initially approached Cape May Brewing Company, I was only hoping for a possible donation.  However, when Randi reached back out to me and presented the idea of a Pint Night, I was floored!  

Pint Night for Police Unity Tour

January is Police Appreciation Month, and we can’t think of a better way to support our men and women in blue than with a night of beer in their honor.  

Well. Money, too. Money is nice, particularly when they’re trying to raise funds in memoriam of their fallen brothers and sisters.

So, we combine the two: on January 18th, from 5-8pm, we’re throwing a Pint Night for Chapter II of the Police Unity Tour!

“Pucker up!”

People are Talking About Tower 23

There’s so much history around Cape May it can sometimes be a little overwhelming. But… that’s how we like it. It gives us a wealth of possible names for brews.

Case in point: Tower 23.

Part of Fort Miles, the system of harbor defenses of the Delaware Bay, it was one of 15 towers stretching from North Wildwood to Bethany Beach, DE, used to aim coastal batteries at German ships and submarines.

That sounds like a great name for a soured Berliner Weisse!

CMBC’s Tower 23 is a little more approachable than its namesake. Generally considered a “gateway sour,” it’s the perfect beer to quaff if you’re not yet sold on sours, even though you’ve been hearing so much about them lately. Like a cold and fizzy glass of lemonade, Tower 23 is tart and sour, marrying a lemony-citric sharpness with little hop bitterness.

Many of the reviews we culled from Untappd say that it’s perfect for summer. And it is. So, swing down to the brewery, give one a try, and dream about a life that doesn’t so closely resemble a frozen hellscape.

“New Jersey's Cape May Brewery has unquestionably demonstrated its place as one of the country's top brewers. The brewery consistently delivers exceptional beers, and with this year's Top Rated Beer of 2017 -- The Topsail -- it has proven it can brew with the world's best.”

The Topsail Named Beer Connoisseur’s Best Beer of 2017

Well… that’s good news.

They say that no news is good news, but nah. No news is mundanity. Good news is good news.

And we started this year with some pretty good news.

There are a multitude of review sites out there and there are a ton of reviews. Some sites are more respected than others, and The Beer Connoisseur is right up at the top.

This week, they announced their highest-rated beers and brewers of the year, and some familiar names were among those honored.

Best Beer of 2017: The Topsail

The people, the beer, the attitude. I like every day that I come to work.

Meet Kathy!

If you’ve been to the Tasting Room at any point over the summer, odds are that you’ve gotten the chance to meet Kathy Forler. And, if you’ve gotten the chance to meet Kathy, you’d not soon forget it.

She’s fiery. She’s gritty, she’s scrappy, and she’s brash. She tells it like it is, and we love her all the more for it. Kathy’s got one of the biggest hearts we’ve ever met.

Most importantly, however, Kathy knows her beer. She’s one of the best female homebrewers we have on staff at the moment, and she brews up some wicked stuff.

In addition, she may be the biggest Eagles fan on staff, which is saying quite a lot.

The summers in Cape May are better simply because she’s here. And, honestly, right now we wish she’d bring some of that Florida sunshine a little farther north. Soon.

So, without further ado, meet Kathy Forler.

FULL FLAVOR!!!!

People are Talking about Concrete Ship

Concrete Ship is one of our most well-received beers. We first brewed it in the summer of 2015, but soon realized that this is a brew best sipped while chasing away the winter blues.

Named for the sunken SS Atlantus, a retired WWI concrete ship visible from Cape May’s Sunset Beach, our Concrete Ship is perfect for chasing away this frigidly cold winter weather. At a respectable 10.5% ABV, this Russian Imperial Stout will keep you warm no matter how low the temperatures plunge outside.

A fantastic stout, but don’t take our word for it — read what people have been saying about this stellar stout.

“I love working with CMBC,” Matt says. “It is humbling to know they want to be a part of such a special cause to me. Their support for the second year in a row is greatly appreciated, and I am grateful for them helping me spread the word and awareness for my cause.”

Szcz the Day Pint Night

Sometimes partnerships get you a little more than you bargained for. John Lennon and Paul McCartney teamed up and changed the face of Western music forever. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins teamed up and got humans to the moon. Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man got together and made some killer beer.

Last year, we partnered with Villanova to make Demisemi for the University’s 175th anniversary, and out of that came a stellar friendship with Cape May native, Padres outfielder Matt Szczur.

We debuted Demisemi at our first Pint Night of 2017, supporting the Andy Talley Foundation and Be the Match. It was such a rousing success that we’ve decided to repeat the magic. On January 12th, $1 from each pint and flight served between 5 and 8pm will be donated to Matt’s newly-founded Matthew Szczur Foundation.
