Jazz and Brews

EZJFBeer and music go hand-in-hand. Gone are the days of rushing to Tower Records on Tuesdays for the latest release from your favorite band, yet the experience of dancing along at one of their concerts — cold (and overpriced) beer in hand — is one that’s not likely to fall by the wayside anytime soon.


At Cape May Brewing Co., we’re going to do what we can to keep that experience alive. For the sixth year in a row, we’re the official beer sponsor of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival.

“The Exit Zero Jazz Festival is one of Cape May’s most important cultural events,” Ryan says. “Not only does the festival bring some of the finest names in jazz to Cape May, but also allows Cape May Brewing Co. to live out one of our Core Values: Be a Good Neighbor.”

We’re proud to sponsor the Cape May Brewing Company Stage at Cabanas. This year, you’ll see such killer acts as Terrance Simien Zydeco Experience, Ranky Tanky, Spuyten Duyvil, or Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution.

Get yourself a CMBC Hops Pass — for $55, you’ll get access to all of the club venues of the festival. It’s first-come-first-served, but each act plays multiple shows at each venue, so you’ll be sure to get a chance to catch them all.

IMG_7238The best thing about this festival — aside from world-class names in jazz — is that we get to brew one of our favorite beers, King Porter Stomp. A porter with an assertive chocolate presence balanced by five different malts, King Porter Stomp will be flowing at all of the club venues of the festival: Carney’s, Iron Pier, Sea Salt, Aleathea’s, the Rusty Nail, and the Cape May Brewing Company Stage at Cabanas.

“The flamboyant and supremely talented Jelly Roll Morton — gambler, story-teller, raconteur, hustler, piano genius, and noted creator of jazz — penned ‘King Porter Stomp’ in 1905, while employed in the clubs and brothels of Storyville, the legal red-light district in his native New Orleans,” said event organizer Michael Kline. “All of New Orleans’ cultural influences are there — African, Mediterranean, Caribbean, and American, simmerings of blues, ragtime, classical — a truly intoxicating mix! Cape May Brewing Company’s exquisite King Porter Stomp is an enlightened nod and a wink to the spirit of Jelly Roll.”

And, for the first time, we’ve got King Porter Stomp available in 12-ounce cans! These beauts hit shelves at the Brewtique on Thursday, and will be out for distribution Monday.

“We love that our Festival audience now has the opportunity to pop the top at home while reliving the mix of music at the Fest,” Michael says. “Yo bro’, I’ll take mine to go.”

This is sure to be a festival for the ages. For more information, including tickets, see www.exit0jazzfest.com.

See you there!
