"With the spices from the sausage and in the sauce, you’re going to want something hoppy, but not so hoppy that it strips your palate and you can’t taste anything. That’s Cape May IPA in a nutshell."

Beer and Pizza Day

Friends….

There is an entire day devoted to drinking beer and eating pizza. An entire day. And it’s TODAY! On this glorious October 9th, you have one job: drink beer and eat pizza.

Granted, with this pandemic, for some of us, that’s all we do every day, but today, at least you have an excuse.

And, to help you get in the beer and pizza mood, we asked the Brew Crew for their favorite CMBC beer and pizza combinations.

Marketing Director Alicia Grasso

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! I love a good Margherita pizza any day– with fresh basil, sweet marinara, olive oil, and just the right amount of mozzarella — always a thin crust with just the right amount of crunch! It takes me right back to dining al fresco in Florence.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Always Ready

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? Pairs nicely with the saltiness of the pie and quenches the thirst.

Packaging Manager Mark Graves

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! I love a good Margherita pie with fresh ingredients, but I have a pretty unusual favorite when it comes to pizza toppings: black olives and meatball. Not sure how or why this ever happened, but I love it. Hard to hate many things pizza. I also support pineapple and pepperoni on a pizza together. (If this is my last day working at Cape May Brewing Company because of this information, I accept this decision and look fondly on my time working here, haha.)

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May IPA

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? Normally I would go Tan Limes, but it is hard to turn down a good Cape May IPA when it comes to pizza. I think the balanced, crisp flavor of our favorite crab-donned beer can beer goes well with my ahhhmazing meatball and black olive pizza. Cheers!

Production Planning and Special Projects Manager Brian Hink

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! I’m a grandma’s pie or margherita kinda guy, but any time I’m checking out a new spot I always go for their classic plain cheese. That’s the best way to get an idea about the shop’s fundamentals: How good is the dough? Is it sweeter sauce or more savory? What’s the sauce to cheese ratio? A lot of things need to be considered when choosing to frequent a pizza joint, and how they execute the classic is of utmost importance to me. It’s like a brewery’s flagship IPA or Pilsner: if they can’t execute them correctly, I have no interest in trying whatever kind of wacky spin they take on other styles. Process is key.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Captain May IPA

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? A nice classic Helles or Pilsner is my preference for pizza pairing, but since we don’t have one at the moment, I’ll take the nice, easy-drinking, super-fresh hop-bomb that is Captain May.

Social Media and Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! A cheese and mushroom slice from Sam’s Pizza. IYKYK.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May IPA

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? An OG pizza with an OG brew. You cannot go wrong there. It’s hard to not have your Sam’s pizza with a cold fountain Birch Beer over crushed ice, but if I had to have it with a beer, it would be Cape May IPA.

Sales Manager Scott McIntyre

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! You can’t beat a really good white pizza! I’m partial to Detroit-style pan pizza, with a nice crispy crust. Sometimes on Friday, we’ll do a flatbread (fewer carbs, right?) with some chicken and pesto!

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May IPA

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? Perfect everyday pizza beer, especially on the beach! Cape May IPA has the perfect combo of floral and citrus with a little zest and bitterness. Can’t beat it!

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Always Ready

Brand Ambassador Mary DiLazzaro

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! Coming from an Italian family, I grew up eating black olives. My brother and I would fight over ‘em as snacks because we LOVED them so much. Naturally, whenever I have a choice for pizza toppings, I always choose black olives.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May White

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? The salty and savory flavor of the pizza balances well with the fruity brew. The lighter brew isn’t filling so you can eat an extra slice or two.

Content Marketing Coordinator Scott Armato

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! If you’re ordering pizza, I’ll eat it. I’m a sausage/mushroom/bacon kinda guy, but I will literally eat any pizza you put in front of me. You see, the great thing about pizza is that, if you don’t like a topping, you can simply remove the topping and not have to eat it. Except anchovies. They make everything within a 25-mile radius taste like salt and sadness.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May IPA

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? There really isn’t a better beer/pizza combination in the world. With the spices from the sausage and in the sauce, you’re going to want something hoppy, but not so hoppy that it strips your palate and you can’t taste anything. That’s Cape May IPA in a nutshell.

Executive Assistant Andrea Sharp

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! My go-to pizza is always pepperoni. Sometimes add some spinach to get the greens and make it sorta healthy.

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? They pair perfectly together because of how light and refreshing the seltzer is. It kinda makes the meal somewhat healthy, with the spinach!

Tasting Room Supervisor Rich Schmidt

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May IPA

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? The hoppy taste mixes well with the spicy pepperoni. No better flavor combination than spicy/hoppy.

Sales Manager Chris Verderame

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! Shaved sausage is my all time favorite pizza topping. Crushed meatball is a strong second choice. And you can never go wrong with peppers & onions. Pro tip: put Mike’s Hot Honey on any pizza! You’ll thank me later.

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? I love lagers with Pizza. Oktoberfest complements a sausage pizza like no other!

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? Tan Limes just goes so well with everything, let’s be honest.

AR and Credit Specialist Noelle Smuz

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! My all-time favorite pizza is a brick oven pizza with artichoke hearts and jalapeños from this little place called Ava’s in St Michaels, MD. They have a beer fountain. It’s awesome.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May White

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? All beer is perfect with pizza, so this is a silly question… but I really enjoy Cape May White in general. (Noelle… no question involving beer is silly. No question involving pizza is silly. Ergo, this is the most important question in the universe. — Ed.)

Tasting Room Supervisor Danielle Brasch

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! Pizzaz pizza is my favorite to make. Inspired by the best: Celebres Pizza in South Philly! Layer up American cheese, sliced tomatoes, and banana peppers and BAM! I received a pizza stone as a gift this summer for my birthday and it’s changed my pizza-making life for the better.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Watermelon Hard Seltzer

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? The watermelon seltzer tones down the spice from the peppers! Totally refreshing!

Brand Ambassador Matt Weber

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! I love seafood pizza. The more clams, scallops, shrimp, and mussels, the better! There are some great places in Cape May, but if you know where to look, you can find really good pizza at mom & pop restaurants in most parts of the country. That’s because folks from NY & NJ have moved all over and filled the void that exists in their new towns.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Cape May White

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? I love Cape May White with pizza because it’s clean and refreshing without overpowering the flavors of the pizza itself. It goes with any pie, including seafood pizza!

Greeter Kevin Cassidy

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! I love a pepperoni and sausage stromboli, baked and topped with parmesan cheese until it is crispy on top, and then some good red sauce for dipping!

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Oktoberfest

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? It is just smooth and makes the stromboli taste even better.

Brewtique Associate Christine Marsh

What are your favorite pizza toppings? Or do you have a favorite specialty pizza? Maybe a favorite pizza-like flatbread? Let’s hear about it! Salami or bacon or sausage and garlic. Hmmm… extra cheese too. I always love a taco pizza, a Philly cheesesteak pizza, a vodka sauce and tortellini pizza…. I really enjoy any pizza that doesn’t have veggies or fruit on it.

Which of our beers is the best with a good pizza? Watermelon Hard Seltzer

Why is that beer perfect with your favorite pizza? All those pizza carbs? Better go easy on the beverage. Also, you’ll want something chug-able in case you start choking from not chewing.
