Five Reasons to Beer Up For Labor Day
There’s a lot to love about Labor Day. It’s the first big holiday since July to help us get through to November, and (sometimes) the weather cooperates, making for the perfect send-off to summer.
For many who visit us down at the shore, it’s one of the last weekends to enjoy the beach and shore homes and all the fun that South Jersey has to offer before heading back up north, or home to another state in the region.
Here’s five reasons why you should make us a part of your Labor Day Weekend plans!
1. The Beer:
You knew this was coming, so why not put it front and center? While we have a lot of great beer out for distribution right now, there’s only one place you can find our new release this week, On the Way to Cape May No. 007: Cotton Candy, as well as our new sessionable sour Bay Daze and separate flavors of Black Cherry and Grapefruit seltzer six-packs: our Cape May Tasting Room! If you’re already down at the shore, you can stop by for a pint in our main Tasting Room, or soak up some rays and chill vibes in the Brewtanical Garden before taking some cans to go from our Brewtique!
2. The Entertainment:
We’ll have music all weekend long, with Ben Stone & Hannah Stone performing in the Brewtanical Garden on Friday from 5-8pm, Matt DiVenti playing in the Brewtanical Garden from 5-8pm on Saturday, and Angela Becker DJing up in our Beer Garden (the covered patio right outside the main bar in the Tasting Room) from 11am-2pm for the early crowd on Sunday.
3. A Sweet Treat:
Ok, ok, we know we said beer already, but hear us out. Our Cotton Candy deserves its own mention, because not only is the beer out this weekend, but we’ll also have ACTUAL pre-packaged cotton candy for everyone to enjoy in the Brewtanical Garden! Yep, that’s right, the real deal. We highly recommend spreading it over the rim to elevate your experience, or even plopping it in the drink itself for an extra-sweet kick!
4. Craft Your Experience:
There’s really no one way to enjoy Cape May Brewery. If you’re by yourself or with a couple friends, hit up the Tasting Room to check out that space and snag a barrel or table inside or outside. If you’ve got a big group who needs some more space, or some little ones that might need some incentive to hang out for a while, our Brewtanical Garden has space for everyone to stretch out and enjoy, as well as some huge sets of Jenga and Connect Four! You’ll definitely spot a pup or two as well, and even better if you bring your own, as it’s our only dog-friendly space! Maybe you just want to try a few of our beers to decide which ones to take home with you. Hop in the flight line and pick four that you’re interested in before browsing our Brewtique to grab your favorites, or pick out some swag to commemorate your time with us!
5. Save the Party:
Even if you can’t come party with us in Cape May this weekend, we won’t hold it against you! If you’re hosting a party, make it the talk of the neighborhood by stocking up on a variety of Cape May beer for your guests. If you’re going to a party, ensure you’ll be invited to every function by showing up with a few six-packs for everyone to enjoy! You can find our brews near you using our Beer Finder, and your favorite bar or restaurant might even have us on draft to enjoy!
