Three Plows 2017

Last year, we brought you the first modern beer made with all-New Jersey ingredients: Three Plows IPA. It was truly a labor of love for us here at CMBC, and we couldn’t have been more proud with how it turned out.

So, we’ve decided to do it again this year… with a twist. The ingredients are still 100% Jersey, it’s still an IPA, but it’s a completely new beer. Three Plows has a fruity and peppery yeast presence, an earthy-malty sweetness, and a pleasant, hoppy aroma flirting with a firm bitterness, yielding an IPA that is uniquely New Jersey.

CMBC Core Values Shine from City to Shore

At Cape May Brewing Co., we’ve recently codified our Core Values: what we stand for, why we’re here, what we hope to achieve in our business, other than brewing great beer.

Over the past few months, we’ve realized that each of our Core Values apply to our involvement with BikeMS: City to Shore or an attribute our riders will need to complete the ride. So, we’ve decided to sit down and explain exactly how each of our Core Values speaks to BikeMS.

50 States with Brian Hink

Beer tourism is quickly becoming an appreciable sector of the tourism industry. Last year, Nielsen found that the average American visits about two breweries during an average vacation. That’s pretty awesome.

And we’re thankful for it. Travelocity recently began ranking metropolitan areas by their beer-worthiness, and Cape May County (represented as Ocean City) was ranked #15 in the small metro area group.

That’s pretty huge for us. Beer tourism, in general, is pretty huge for us. We love our out-of-towners. (Hey, y’all… You know we’re still here in the off-season, right?!?)

In general, New Jersey’s craft beer scene is still in its infancy. Since the change in New Jersey’s legal structure in 2012 that allowed for tasting rooms, we’ve seen a veritable explosion in breweries throughout the Garden State.

With the easy access to delicious, fresh produce, it’s only a matter of time before New Jersey takes its place among the truly well-respected beer destinations. In the meantime, we’re still in the bottom five states in breweries per capita.

But Cape May County is seeing an upswing. Since we opened, four new breweries have followed in our footsteps, and three more are in planning stages. Add that to the handful of breweries in Cumberland and Atlantic counties, and we’re seeing Deep South New Jersey becoming a beer destination set to rival just about any across the country.

“A crowd draws a crowd,” says Head Brewer Brian Hink, “and as long as the other breweries around us are making standout beers, the more the merrier!”

And Brian knows a thing or two about beer tourism. He’s recently achieved something that very few people this side of retirement achieve: Brian’s visited all fifty states, sampling delicious brews along the way.

Without our guests and without their loyalty, we couldn’t be Lucky Bones.

Spotlight On… Lucky Bones

The craft beer scene in Cape May County has taken off over the past few years, with a few of our local bars at the forefront, leading the charge. Lucky Bones, just off the actual Devil’s Reach on Cape May Harbor, is one of them.

We sat down last week with Erik Delinski, who’s been the Craft Beverage Program Manager at Lucky Bones in Cape May for about three years.

PHL17 love!

PHL17 was down last week to film their final installment of Lee by the Sea, Jason Lee’s segment on the PHL17 Morning News highlighting all of the great things at the Jersey Shore. He caught our guys canning some Coastal, got a lesson in brewing from Ryan, and sampled a flight of The Bog, Mop Water, Cape May IPA, and City to Shore.

Our Hundred-Milers

We really couldn’t be more proud of the guys in the brewhouse. Across the board, we’ve got some great people back there: not only are they dedicated to producing the best beer possible, but truly, hand-to-God good people.

When they all signed up to ride BikeMS: City to Shore, we weren’t terribly surprised. Grateful and delighted, certainly, but not surprised.

A few weeks ago, we got together with four of our guys — Eddie Siciliano, Mike McGrath, Kevin Kately, and our BikeMS: City to Shore ringleader, Andrew Ewing — to check in on their progress.

And, again: these are great guys. We love them. They’ve got hearts as big as the great outdoors. But. Well… when you get these guys together, crassness transpires.

As a brewery, we sponsor a team to raise money, but a lot of the riders do it to have a good time. And these guys know how to have a good time.

And this interview was definitely a good time.

Consider yourself warned.

“I actually feel special. I feel like someone.”

Welcome, Trevor!

Some people just can’t resist the call of the open road. Can you blame them? There’s something romantic about having nothing before you except an endless stretch of asphalt, a stop or two, and possibilities as far as the eye can see.

Our new driver, Trevor Rivera, is one of them.

“New Jersey and its coastal communities are no strangers to natural disasters,” Hank says. “That’s why when something like Harvey or Irma happens anywhere throughout the country, we feel the need to step up and do our part.”

30 Items in 30 Days

Mother Nature is a force to be reckoned with. She seems to have her own agenda and doesn’t really seem to care if she leaves destruction in her wake. The rest of us have no other choice but to sit back and wonder, “What can I do to help?”

That’s why Cape May Brewing Company has joined forces with over 50 local businesses in Cape May County to bring you the 30 Items in 30 Days Challenge.

City to Shore

BikeMS: City to Shore is inherently exciting. Thousands of bike riders make the trek from Cherry Hill, riding on a wave of enthusiasm and goodwill, entering Ocean City to meet the cheering throngs awaiting their arrival.

The least we could do is get them a beer.

And this time around they’ll be able to stash 4-packs of 16-ounce cans along the way.
