White Caps and Sports

Hey, sports fans!

It’s truly the sports lover’s favorite time of year. While baseball is only just in the past, hockey and basketball are just getting warmed up, but football seems to dominate every conversation everywhere.

No matter what team you root for, whatever sport you’re watching, White Caps is a great brew for cheering along. Brewed with hefty portions of wheat and oats, White Caps has a soft mouthfeel, a pillowy head, and a robust body. Featuring Mosaic and Citra hops, this effervescent Double IPA explodes with notes of papaya, mango, stone fruits, and citrus. 

We caught up with the Brew Crew to find out what sports they love to watch with a cold White Caps in hand.

Nitro Fest with Randi

We’re gearing up for what’s become one of our favorite far-flung events: Left Hand’s Nitro Fest! Running this weekend, our good friends at Left Hand Brewing Co. bring together some of the biggest names in nitro beer throughout the world for this festival and throw a pretty killer costume party in the process.

This week, we got together with Events Coordinator Randi Friel for a little Q&A to find out what’s so awesome about this festival!

King Porter Stomp Reviews

King Porter Stomp.

The simple fact that it’s coming back is a beautiful thing. Robust, medium-bodied, and so deliciously chocolatey, with five different malts, King Porter Stomp is a tremendously complex porter.

Not only does the return of King Porter Stomp herald the return of autumn, but it means that the Exit Zero Jazz Festival is back in town, with Cape May Brewing Company beer flowing at all the bar venues. There’ll be music all throughout town this weekend! It’s the best time of the year!

"Everybody’s very, very friendly. And everybody seems to love working here.”

Welcome Noelle!

Our newest Brewtique Associate, Noelle Smuz, has been dying to work here forever, and, now that she does, she’s been doing a great job.

“After hearing of Noelle’s persistence at wanting to be a part of CMBC,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello, “I knew we would be able to find a fit in the Brewtique. I can’t wait to see what the future here holds for her.”

Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith loves having her here, as well.

“She comes in every day with a positive attitude and immediately asks what she can help with,” she says. “She is very friendly with the customers and her teammates which makes her really fun to work with!”

Welcome Noelle!

Friends Giving 2019

Be a Good Neighbor.

As one of our Core Values, it’s probably the one that we hear about most often. But there’s a good reason for that: when you want to help others, it becomes second nature.

And, luckily, we want to help others. And it’s not just us: on the whole, the brewing community is all about looking out for the least among us. 

But, we can chalk that up to beer itself — it brings people together. And, when we bring people together over a beer, we get the chance to discuss the things that unite us as well as the things that divide us.

Food insecurity is dividing us: there are the haves and the have-nots. You’re either food secure or food insecure. You either know where your next meal is coming from or you don’t.

Last year, Double Nickel in Pennsauken reached out to us, Tonewood in Oaklyn, and Urban Village in Philly to get together and brew a beer to do what we could to make a dent in food insecurity in our area.

We called it Friends Giving, and it raised an unbelievable $75,000.

So, considering the fact that we were able to help so many people by doing something that we do anyway, it only made sense to do it again this year.

“We’re looking for Lacto and Pedio.”

More Toys!

We’ve definitely got some fun toys at the brewery.

That new canning line is awesome — it makes canning beer so much faster. Our centrifuge is pretty cool, too — it gets the beer cleaned up, looking pretty, and tasting fantastic. Innovation Director Brian Hink gets to have a lot of fun with our pilot system, developing tasty new beers for you fine folks, and our beer engine opened up a whole world of new beers to try in our Tasting Room. Even Craig and Polly probably have a lot of fun on our forklifts.

(Okay, that last one’s a lie. Work safe, work smart.)

Yet, we’ve got a tiny, little room off to the side of the brewery floor that you might not notice if someone doesn’t point it out to you, and the most fun — and expensive — toys in the brewery are in there.

That’s our lab. And Lab Manager Lauren Appleman spends her days cooped up in there, playing with those awesome toys.

And she got a shiny, new toy over the past few months — okay, it’s not shiny — but her new Gene-Up from bioMérieux is making it easier for her to ensure that each can that leaves our warehouse is of the highest quality.

"They’re the best. We really do work well together, we’re a good team, and we have a lot of fun."

Our Events Team

Odds are, you’ve met these women. You’ve seen them out at our Tap Takeovers or at beer dinners or at any number of beer festivals throughout the region.

They’re our intrepid Events Team: Jenna Tesauro and Lauren Frech have been with us for a little over three years, and, since we’ve added a new member of the team — not coincidentally Jenna’s twin sister Danielle –, we figured it was time to introduce our fans to these wonderful ladies.

“I’d be lost without them,” says Events Coordinator Randi Friel. “They’re incredibly hard workers. They’re out in the field, rain or shine, running awesome tap takeovers and beer festivals, answering questions from new fans — all while getting our beer to flow through our sometimes-temperamental jockey boxes. They are perfect.”

And Randi’s not just trying to make them sound good — they really are amazing. However, if you’ve been to an event that features our beer, you probably already know that.

Meet your Events Team!

"Over the years, Cape May Brewing Company has proven to be a great friend to the festival, sponsoring our stage at Cabanas and brewing up a chocolate stout that even Jelly Roll Morton would love."

Jazz Fest is Back!

Twice each year, the sounds of jazz fill the streets of Cape May. 

And the sounds of funk. And zydeco. And R&B. And samba. And reggae. And soul. And swing. And… and… and….

Essentially, every genre of music that gets you on your feet and dancing is represented twice each year at the Exit Zero Jazz Festival, kicking off next weekend at venues throughout Cape May. 

And you’ll be able to find Cape May brews — in particular our stellar King Porter Stomp — at venues throughout the festival!

"From this moment forward, we will only be serving New Jersey-brewed beers." -- First Lady Tammy Murphy

Drumthwacket

When the Governor of New Jersey says, “Hey, stop by the house for a beer,” you show up.

That’s essentially what happened last week when the Governor hosted several of New Jersey’s craft brewers at his house in Princeton, better known as the Governor’s Mansion, Drumthwacket.

Ryan and Mop Man were in attendance and Brand Ambassador Mark Dumsha was pouring. The Governor gave us a proclamation in honor of our recent GABF win for Honey Porter, and declared that, henceforth, only New Jersey beer would be poured at Drumthwacket.

Pretty cool!

It was an honor to be invited and an honor to be proclaimed. Check out the pictures and video below!

“There are all these different uniquenesses to these farms, so the hops are going to have slightly different characteristics.”

Hop Selection for the Brew Crew

Each year, we’re invited out to the Yakima Valley to select our lot of hops for the upcoming year. It’s an incredible honor to be invited, so Ryan flies out with Innovation Director Brian Hink, allowing us to ensure that the hops we use for, say Cape May IPA, are the Cape May IPA-iest hops we can get. We’re looking for consistency, so that when you crack a can brewed in January, it’ll taste the same as a can brewed in September.

So, in keeping with a few of our Core Values — like Be a Pro, Make it Better, and, of course, Have Fun — Hank and Innovation Director Brian Hink set up our very own Hops Selection for the Brew Crew, tucked into a corner of our loading dock, where we got down and dirty and tested our schnozzes alongside the best snouts at CMBC.
