Labor Day with the Brew Crew

It’s a bittersweet holiday, Labor Day. 

While we have a great time at the Tasting Room, we know that it means that summer is ending, and we have to say goodbye to all of the wonderful people who have visited over the summer season.

On the other hand, we also know that the hustle and the bustle of the summer season will soon be behind us. Cooler days and shorter lines await.

For the rest of us, it’s the perfect time for a day off. So, we decided to check in with the Brew Crew to see how they’d be celebrating the three-day weekend and which of our beers they’d be using to unwind.

Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? A nice, chill weekend — the change of season is in the air. I’ll be getting in some beach time — there are usually decent waves and warm waters this time of year. Probably some grilling and a family get-together. Monday cocktails on the beach, weather permitting.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Oktoberfest and Captain May

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? They’re perfect for people watching.

Director of People Operations Christine Bry

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? Labor Day is the one day of the year I do NOTHING and do it well! No cooking, no cleaning, no volunteering, and seriously, no working. You will find me in my beach chair, hammock, backyard swing, or couch (if raining), listening to a good book or watching a movie and decluttering my mind.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Grapefruit Hard Seltzer

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? Cape May Hard Seltzer is perfect when doing nothing well. I can drink them all day and night, napping in between.

Cape Beverage Operations Manager Justin Vitti

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? Labor Day Weekend is the unofficial kickoff to “Locals’ Summer” — the beaches in this area are at their best for perfect beach days during the month of September. Not too hot, not too cold, perfect humidity, an occasional nor’easter…. I will be celebrating this year’s special 2020 COVID-19 Edition Labor Day by replacing the roof over my kitchen. Taking off three layers of leaking shingles plus all of the sheathing underneath and any other surprises one might discover in a house built in 1902. Thank goodness I can do this myself….

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Tan Limes

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? For me, it will be quite refreshing and thirst-quenching after baking in the hot sun all day, taking down 300 sq ft of roofing!

Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I love Labor Day Weekend because it’s one last chance to see all of our fans who make a trip to the Beer Garden or Brewtanical Garden to enjoy some of their favorite beers! I’ll be at the Tasting Room this weekend ready to serve one more Pour at the Shore.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Cape May White

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? Well, they say you can’t wear white after Labor Day, so I’ll enjoy a Cape May White whilst wearing my white pants one last time.

Sales Manager Tom LoBianco

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I love the fact that Labor Day Weekend signals the end of summer! I know that to most that’s just “crazy” especially because I work for a company located “down the shore” whose peak season is summer and bears the name Cape May which is synonymous with summer vacation.

Here’s where it gets really crazy, I love the fall!! The changing of the seasons, getting dark earlier, cooler weather, HALLOWEEN!! This year is even better because my daughter will be beginning kindergarten so from here on out Labor Day will signal back to school! I will be celebrating in NY for my father-in-law’s birthday.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Oktoberfest

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? We already covered my love for all things fall, but it is also a break from lighter beers, fruit beers, hazy IPAs that I have been drinking all summer. A delicious malty lager to change things up. It’s one of my favorite CMBC brews and it should be one of yours!

Warehouse Supervisor Polly Pollock-Bell

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I love that it is a three-day weekend. The long weekend will be spent doing some DIY and enjoying some downtime from the hectic production schedule.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Tiny Drink Umbrella: Piña Colada

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? It’s the perfect post-work beverage, it’s the perfect post-summer drink, and it’s the perfect beer for the people. Can this be an all year round beer? Asking for a friend. Piña colada is one of my all-time favorite frozen cocktails and this is right on the money. Can we get this on the slushie machine? Also asking for a friend.

Greeter Tom Myers

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? Labor Day signifies the end of the summer schedule, prepping for the fall and enjoying the flavors of the upcoming season. That fall flavor will no doubt include an ice-cold Oktoberfest while watching college football 🏈 and then later enjoying good times around my fire pit.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Oktoberfest

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? The multi malt flavors of this amber-colored lager is the perfect Brew to celebrate the upcoming season.

Content Marketing Coordinator Scott Armato

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I think Labor Day is one of my favorite holidays for the simple reason that the entire rationale behind the holiday is to give us a day off. It’s not a holiday like Christmas when you’re expected to (ugh) spend a crapload of cash beforehand, or Thanksgiving when you’re expected to (ugh) be thankful for what you have, or Valentine’s Day that’s all about (ugh) love, or even New Years where you’re expected to (ugh) socialize and (ugh) stay up past your bedtime. The only thing you’re expected to do on Labor Day is not work. Sign me up!

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Oktoberfest

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? The can says it all: “Perfect for the changing seasons”! It’s a good, autumn lager, but it’s still got that hint of sweetness to remind you of summer. In my opinion, it’s one of the best beers we make, and it goes away entirely too quickly. (Unlike 2020, which is dragging on like a Paul Thomas Anderson film — it’s had more than its fair share of drama and twists, but, at this point, I’m looking at the clock, wondering when it’s gonna be over.)

Sales Manager Scott McIntyre

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? There’s nothing better than a cookout on Labor Day weekend! This weekend, we’ll be firing up the smoker and cooking some ribs!

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Tan Limes

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? Labor Day weather is perfect to crush some Tan Limes! Especially when you’re cooking over a hot grill!

Brand Ambassador Mark Dumsha

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? For us teachers out there, Labor Day means the start of another school year! Summer is behind us! I definitely don’t love it like I love the 4th of July!

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Oktoberfest

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? Labor Day is the unofficial start of fall, and nothing says fall like Oktoberfest!

Executive Assistant Andrea Sharp

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I love having an extra day to spend time with my family. We will spend the entire day on the beach or the boat and the evening grilling.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Grapefruit Hard Seltzer

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? It’s light and so refreshing. Plus it pairs perfectly with food straight off the grill. Hot dogs or hamburgers, anyone?

Brand Ambassador Matt Weber

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? What I love most about Labor Day weekend is NOT WORKING. I’ll be drinking, lounging by or in the pool, listening to music, and trying to keep anything work-related out of my mind for three days.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? The Grove

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner when you don’t have anywhere to go and nothing to do!

Sales Manager Chris Verderame

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I love the long weekend! It’s bittersweet that summer is ending but fall is nice as well. I’ll be celebrating Labor Day weekend with a couple of bushels of crabs and my family.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Oktoberfest

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? It’s an odd connection but Oktoberfest pairs very well with Old Bay and crabs. It’s a great märzen-style lager to sip while sitting at a table covered in newspaper and a mess load of blue claws.

Sales Manager Michael Laferrera

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I will be celebrating Labor Day at the beach with the family and enjoying a nice Tan Limes or two.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Tan Limes

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? It has been my beach beer all summer. Easy drinking and refreshing.

Accounting Lead Katie VanZandt

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I am a firm believer in not rushing the seasons. September and October are my favorite time of year in Cape May: the humidity drops and so do the mid-week crowds. I’ll celebrate Labor Day on the beach before diving back into remote learning with a second- and fifth-grader the following day.

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Tiny Drink Umbrella: Piña Colada

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? It’s still piña colada season. There will be plenty of time for pumpkin spice in November.

Greeter Barbara Bur

What do you love about Labor Day Weekend? How will you be celebrating? I love Labor Day Weekend because it’s my last hurrah and my last day of work as a summer employee at Cape May Brew! I’ll miss everyone, but I’m looking forward to getting back to teaching. Cheers all!

Which Cape May Brew Co beer will you be enjoying? Oktoberfest

Why is this beer perfect for Labor Day Weekend? It’s the end of summer, so I love to start my fall off with the Oktoberfest!
