Everything we’ve done has been to be more efficient and serve our fans in the best way possible.

Our New Look!

As we head into summer, our needs in the Tasting Room change drastically.

Compare the attendance on a rainy Saturday afternoon in March to the attendance on a rainy Saturday afternoon in July — to say the least, there are many, many more bodies ambling about the Tasting Room in July, vying to taste our wares.

That’s simply one of the many benefits of running a tourist destination in a shore town. We love our seasonal visitors, and we want to accommodate as many as we possibly can.

So, over the past few weeks, General Retail Manager Kaitlyn Smith and her motley crew of merry men (and women!) have been working to bring the Tasting Room up to par as the days are getting longer and the temperature is climbing higher.

This summer is gearing up to be awesome.

It’s Eventful!

As we get closer to summer, our events calendar really starts to fill up. American Craft Beer Week — happening now — kicks off a summer season filled with festivals, tap takeovers, pop-up beer gardens, and every kind of event to tickle your fancy and get our beers into some unusual places.

In fact, this coming weekend is one of our busiest, with six events on Saturday alone, spread all throughout the area.

We caught up with our Chief Celebrations Officer Randi Friel to get the lowdown on what to expect this summer.

Yeah, this guy got his hop cone and he’s keeping it.

Follow That Gull!

In 2017, we were honored to be asked to brew a handful of commemorative brews. Villanova University asked us to brew Demisemiseptcentennial Pale Ale for their 175th anniversary (and we thought we were through with having to type “Demisemiseptcentennial”), and the County of Cape May asked us to help them ring in their 325th year with a commemorative brew, Follow the Gull.

Both turned out excellently; however, one of them turned out so well that it’s truly become a favorite for everyone at the brewery.

Because of that, this week, we’re pleased to offer Follow the Gull in 16-ounce tall boys!

I'm very happy, now.

Welcome Caitlyn!

One of the well-tested axioms of life at the brewery is that our fans make the best employees. Time and again, as we look to hire a phalanx of new folks on the floor, in the Brewtique, and in the office, we’ve learned that the ability to do the job is equally as important as an existing love for CMBC.

We can teach anyone to clean a keg. We can’t teach you to love Coastal Evacuation.

When Caitlyn Pohlig interviewed for a position on the Brewtique Crew, we’d seen her around here often enough that her cheerful disposition and downright sweet-as-Foreshore attitude was just icing on the cake.

Welcome Caitlyn!

We’ve been truly lucky this year.

Three Great Awards!

Over the past week, we’ve been extraordinarily gratified to receive three very special awards.

The United States Coast Guard Community Foundation bestowed on us the Hometown Hero award, the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities gave us a Community Partners Award, and the Garden State Culinary Arts Awards gave us the Beer Professional Award.

It was certainly a week to remember.

We’re all there to enjoy craft beer. Let’s do it together.

American Craft Beer Week 2018

ACBW18_redThere are plenty of week-long observances out there.

Some are good ones: we just observed Teacher Appreciation Week. Did you thank a teacher? They deserve it.

Some are practical: Healthy and Safe Swimming Week is the week before Memorial Day. These are good things to think about as we head into season.

Some are a little ridiculous: we’re currently in the midst of National Raisin Week. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But there’s one that we can all get behind, and it’s coming up the week of May 14th: American Craft Beer Week!

Be a good kid and bring her down to the brewery this weekend.

Celebrate Mom!

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, which means it’s time to honor all that the mothers in our lives have done for us over the years.

She ran you from tuba practice to soccer practice to tutoring and somehow managed to figure out a way to not let you starve in the meantime. She cleaned your room when the only people allowed in there should have been wearing hazmat suits. Through all of your faults and missteps, she kept a winning smile on her face, clinging to the unerring belief in your inherent goodness.

Now, the mom in your life keeps your kids fed between running them to dance class and baseball practice and Scouts. Your friends publicly comment on what a beautiful home she keeps and privately comment that you’re a lucky man. She magically juggles a family and a rewarding career, and you thank your lucky stars that she came into your life.

And don’t forget all of those “honorary moms”: your grandma who’s been to every tuba recital. The sainted aunt who stepped in while mom was sick and out of commission for a week. Your high school friend’s mom who still answers to “mom” when you run into her at the mall.

For all that she does, mom — in all her forms — deserves a beer.

I’m very lucky. Life is good.

Welcome Paul!

We used to say that no one enjoys retirement more than Mop Man.

That is… until we met Paul Greer.

We’ve recently brought him on as a Greeter and Brand Ambassador, and Paul’s been loving every minute of his time here. With his innate love for beer and deep history with the brewery, his tours are some of the most informative and entertaining in Cape May, and he loves being able to meet every person as they come through the door.

So, here’s Paul!

There’s nothing more fun than whacking a papier-mâché donkey with a stick....

Cinco de Mayo y Cerveza

You know the date — it’s practically synonymous with the word party. May 5th. Cinco de Mayo. It’s a date that we all get to have a good time, drink some brews, and celebrate Mexican culture.

Let’s say that, this year, you’ve decided to throw a party. Hell, why not? It’s on a Saturday, so you might as well. It’s guaranteed to be a good time.

We’ve got all your party info right here. We kept things easy and cheap.

“It was really cool to see the differences between my five-gallon batch and a batch here,” he says.

Catch the Drift

Regulars to the Tasting Room probably know Assistant Tasting Room Manager Dan Petela. He’s our longest-serving Beertender, a fixture behind the bar and, for many, nearly synonymous with CMBC.

He’s also the biggest beer geek we have in the Tasting Room. By leaps and bounds. His knowledge of beer is almost supernatural. His first words probably were, “This isn’t bad, but they should have upped the Simcoe in the dry hop a bit.”

Now, we pride ourselves on hiring some of the brightest beer minds in the area to work behind the bar and help you select the next beer you’re going to love. Everyone behind the bar is top-notch.

But Dan definitely wins in the geekery department.
