Visiting the Brewery

There have been a number of changes at Cape May Brewing Company, from changes due to COVID-19 to opening new spaces and creating new experiences.

We want our visitors to have all of the information they need in one place, so we’ve compiled it below. If you have any unanswered questions, please see our FAQ page.

Beer Can Appreciation Day!

Beer Can Appreciation Day is this Sunday, January 24th, commemorating the first time beer was available in cans. 

On a cold day in 1935, the Krueger Brewing Company canned up over 80 cases of Krueger’s Finest Beer and Krueger’s Cream Ale and served them up to beer drinkers in Richmond, Virginia, and they were a hit! According to records, 91% of the very first canned beer drinkers approved of the new aluminum vessel, and Krueger ended up making it its preferred container.

And thank goodness! Cans are lighter than bottles, making them easier to produce and transport, they’re more easily recycled, taking less energy to do so. And, let’s face it: it’s kinda hard to drink beer without a can — you’d have to cup your hands together or hold your head under a tap or something.

But, most importantly, our cans are a blank canvas for some incredibly awesome designs. The Tan Limes lime? The mermaid on The Bog? How about that awesome octopus on our Devil’s Reach cans?

On this most august of days, we need to send a big shout-out to our design team, Canales & Co. of Austin, TX. These folks are the ones tasked with creating our awesome designs, and, at Cape May Brewing Company, we know that much of our success is due to their talents.

So, to celebrate, we hit up the Brew Crew to find out which of our can designs are their favorites.

“If we had dropped the ABV a smidge this would be an all-day drinking beer, but I could still put down a few without getting tired of it or blowing out my palate.”

Wait! We didn’t mean right now. We meant after you read this blog about our Valentine’s Day release.

This year: Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Milkshake IPA, which… well… tastes exactly how you might expect it to taste.

Baltic Porter Day!

Beer holidays are the best!

Luckily, this Saturday, January 16th, we have a perfect storm: it’s Baltic Porter Day and we have our Baltic Porter on tap! 

So, we’ve got ten reasons you should stop down and give our Baltic Porter a try this weekend.

“I never expected a marketing role to open at Cape May Brewing Company, so when I saw it, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. It’s kind of crazy how things worked out.”

Welcome Casey!

We always say that the biggest fans make the best employees, but it’s incredibly gratifying to know that, in addition to our beers, we have fans of our marketing.

“We had a number of great candidates for the position of Marketing Associate,” says Marketing Director Alicia Grasso, “but Casey was the obvious choice. Not only has she been a fan of our beer for several years, but she’s also been a fan of our marketing for at least as long. An avid reader of our blog and a longtime follower on social media, she comes to us with a great deal of existing knowledge about our brands and marketing initiatives. With her positive attitude and strong work ethic, I’m looking forward to the talents she’ll bring to our department.”

Welcome Casey McBride!

“It was cool to talk about a beer with people outside of our team and get some ideas.”

Two Versions of Me

There are few things better than a good collaboration, and our most recent collaboration is a good one.

This time, we’ve partnered with a brewery which, in all likelihood, you’re probably pretty familiar with. A well-respected South Jersey brewery, they’ve been killing it lately, with a meteoric rise that mirrors our own.

We’re talking about Tonewood Brewing Company in Oaklyn, of course. Only a short drive from Cape May, we’re all pretty excited about this collaboration.

A West Coast-style IPA called Two Versions of Me, it will be available in our Tasting Room on Friday, January 22nd, with distribution throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania beginning the following Monday, January 25th.

“It's a fun beer! High ABV, supremely drinkable, crisp, zesty, refreshing, bright, unique."

Golden Mule

Who doesn’t love a Moscow Mule?

Zesty, sweet, bubbly, tart, spicy, aromatic — all in a gleaming copper mug — they’re terribly refreshing, thirst-quenching, and all-around fantastic.

Who wouldn’t want that in a beer?!?

Luckily, we’ve been doing exactly that for quite some time, usually as one-offs — kegs or firkins of an established brand to which we add new and exciting flavorings –, but now you can get it in 16-ounce cans!

Don’t miss Golden Mule!
