Netflix and Beer

This is going on FOREVER, isn’t it?

If you’re anything like us, you’ve cooked every possible dish in your repertoire, you’ve cleaned your house from top to bottom and back to the top again, and you’ve had a Zoom party with every person you’ve ever come into contact with in the history of your life. Ever. 

We’re glad to have had the opportunity to provide the beer for those parties.

In all likelihood, at this point, you’re looking for new shows to binge on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc., etc. You’re done with Tiger King — because your friends and family didn’t give you a choice –, but it’s time for something new, and you need suggestions.

So, this week, we hit up the Brew Crew to find out what they’re watching, and we asked them to pair the perfect Cape May Brewing Co. beer with their show.

Check it out!

Justin Vitti — Cape Beverage Operations Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? MacGyver Seasons 1 – 7 (1985 – 1991) on CBS All Access and Amazon Prime

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Double Dry-Hopped White Caps

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? MacGyver: He doesn’t drink alcohol BUT he does opt for a nice cold glass of carrot juice when available. Carrots are typically a very sweet vegetable, which is why they make great cakes. Cakes are very sweet. You need a nice hoppy Double IPA to cut through the sweetness and richness of the carrots (cakes). DDH White Caps is just that perfect beer: hoppy, perfect bitterness, perfectly paired with carrots. DDH White Caps = MacGyver.

Christine Bry — Director of People Operations

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Little Fires Everywhere and Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Coastal Evacuation

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Coastal Evacuation – get the he** out of there! Both shows deal with how to ESCAPE a bad situation. Plus who does not love Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington?? Together, antagonists – I know what’s coming as I read (listened to) the books – but don’t spoil it for me – I am working at the computer or on the phone all day, preparing dinner, fitting in exercise, and Facetime with family and friends – I have very little binge-watching time available! TGIF!

Alicia Grasso — Marketing Director

Which show are you loving during quarantine? His Dark Materials on HBO

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sawyer’s Swap

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? It’s an easy pairing for me, because “the daemon is in the details.” This show is so complex and fantastical that it pairs really well with Bourbon Barrel Aged Sawyer’s Swap: a dark barrel-aged beer aptly named after a complex historical story. Quarantine life has my family obsessed with Lin Manuel Miranda right now so anything that we can watch that includes him performing, is told from the perspective of children, includes magic and mystery and people connected by animals, and somehow makes Dust seem exciting…..  is a win in my watchlist.

Mark Graves — Packaging Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Breaking Bad on Netflix

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? The Purp

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? I mean, c’mon…. The Purp? Breaking Bad? You get it.

Brian Hink — Innovation Director

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Not a show, but I’m certainly watching my beer stock dwindle!

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Double Dry-Hopped White Caps

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Cause it’s delicious 🙂

Tom LoBianco — Sales Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Twin Peaks is on Hulu and was a great rewatch. I am usually watching YouTube though. Plenty of paranormal, UFO and true crime, missing persons channels.

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Double Dry-Hopped White Caps

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? I’ve been working my way through a case of DDH White Caps. So it has paired well with everything I’ve been watching!

Mitchell Freeman — Packaging Operator

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Dave on Hulu

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Double Dry-Hopped White Caps

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? A flavor-packed beer for a humor-packed show.

Jenna Tesauro — Event Staff

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Maybe I’m missing my time with coworkers: I’ve been replaying office-based comedies in the background lately in The Office (Netflix) and Archer (Hulu).

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Tan Limes

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? The shows have plenty of salty humor, and Tan Limes has plenty of salt (paired deliciously with the lime). It’s also just a great beer to take a timeout and chill.

Danielle Tesauro — Event Staff

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Watchmen on HBO

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Double Dry-Hopped White Caps

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Hmm, I’m not so sure that DDH White Caps really pairs with Watchmen other than the fact that they’re both awesome. But then again, what beer does pair with a modern extension on a literary classic (yeah, I called it a classic) that manages to include some timely commentary on America? I’m really a fan of the hops choices in the DDH White Caps this year, particularly the Sabro which brings some alluring tropical notes to an already great beer. I’d have to say that they pair well because I can’t drink just one DDH White Caps or watch just one episode of Watchmen.

Michael Laferrera — Sales Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? The whole family watches all of the Harry Potter Movies and now we started watching the Star Wars movies. We watch the movies on demand

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Tan Limes

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Tan Limes is an easy and refreshing beer to enjoy relaxing with the family.

Barbara Bur — Greeter

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Schitt’s Creek on Netflix

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? She the People

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? It’s refreshing to have a quick-witted, lighthearted series that simply makes me laugh and forget about this whole quarantine craziness. Sipping the light and refreshing She the People makes perfect sense while bingeing Schitt’s Creek.

Courtney Sara Rosenberg — Social Media and Design Alchemist

Which show are you loving during quarantine? That 70s Show on Netflix.

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Double Dry-Hopped White Caps

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Because Hyde, Forman, Kelso, Hot Donna, Jackie, and Fez love the dank, Kitty would like how pretty the can is, and Red wouldn’t touch it because he would think it’s crap. More for the gang!

Mary Braccili — Guest Guru

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Ozark on Netflix

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Double Dry-Hopped White Caps

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? I started my Season 3 binge on the lighter side with a She the People but as the drama developed and the intensity magnified, I found myself oddly comforted with the DDH White Caps! It’s absolutely delicious! Bring on Season 4!

Scott Armato — Content Marketing Coordinator

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Scrubs on Hulu

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Tan Limes

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? The light flavor of sea salt in Tan Limes mingles with the salty tears I shed every four episodes or so. For such a silly show, man!, it’ll kick you right in the gut every so often. And I recently discovered Fake Doctors, Real Friends, the Scrubs rewatch podcast with Zach Braff and Donald Faison. Their “Guy Love” is still very real!

Eric Wormann — Sales Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Just started The Last Dance, the new 10-part ESPN documentary series on the Chicago Bulls of the 1990s.

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Coastal Evacuation

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Just like the 1990’s Chicago Bulls, this is the most reliably great beer that we make. The Centennial hops are obviously the Michael Jordan in this beer, but while the Citra and Simcoe are not necessarily the stars of this beer, much like Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant (or maybe Dennis Rodman, depending on the year), they complement the centennial hops so well that it all comes together as a great team.

Jeff Zagiel — Beertender

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Disjointed on Netflix

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Devil’s Reach

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Nothing like sipping on a nice strong Belgian while cracking up to the outrageous Dank & Dabby. Besides, Devil’s Reach sounds like it could be the “Strain o’ the Day”!

Richie Rallo — Sales Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Outer Banks on Netflix

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Tan Limes

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? I eye-guzzled Outer Banks while mouth-guzzling Tan Limes. 5 stars all around! 

Matthew Weber — Brand Ambassador

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Star Trek Discovery on CBS All Access

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Devil’s Reach

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Devil’s Reach is strong and out there, like the Discovery and her crew!

Scott McIntyre — Sales Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Below Deck and Summer House on Bravo

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Tan Limes

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Below Deck and Summer House two summer shows that are perfect with a summer beer like Tan Limes!

Walt Rogers — Brand Ambassador

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Devil’s Reach

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? As the tension grows between the two lead roles (Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington) and throughout all the other storylines, the bold flavor of a strong Belgian-style brew like Devil’s Reach (not to mention the ABV!) pairs really well with the all the drama!

Jenna Rae Rohana — Sales Assistant

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? She the People

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? I have a few She the People in the fridge that I like to enjoy while watching Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington both play strong, opinionated female roles in Little Fires Everywhere. Although both women have entirely different upbringings that have lead them to have opposite outlooks on life, ultimately creating tension when their worlds collide, I find myself relating to both of them and rooting for a win/win scenario. This show is captivating and kicks butt and I definitely recommend adding it to your quarantine watchlist!

Andrea Sharp — Executive Assistant

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Schitt’s Creek (I know I’m way late to the party) and it’s on Netflix

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? The Bog

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? The Bog goes with everything.

Evan Kostka — Sales Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? The Outsider on HBO and The Tunnel on Amazon

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Honey Porter

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Both shows are dark, mystery-based thrillers.

Tom Myers — Guest Guru

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Ozark on Netflix

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Devil’s Reach

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Ozark is an outstanding series (3 seasons) to binge-watch featured on Netflix. You will fall in love with many of the locals and there are enough evildoers to hate! Many of the characters in Ozark take on the “complexity and the robustness of the Belgian yeast” in Devil’s Reach. And just when you THINK you know the next “turn of events”, a sure SURPRISE will await you in Ozark just as the 8.6% ABV will sneak up on you. So grab a bag of cheese popcorn, pour a cold Devil’s Reach and be prepared to become addicted to the 30 episodes of Ozark!

Gavin McGee — Brand Ambassador

Which show are you loving during quarantine? The Wire on HBO

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sawyer’s Swap

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? The show is dark like the beer and the main character is an alcoholic who drinks bourbon on occasion

Polly Pollock-Bell — CMBC Warehouse Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? Broad City on Hulu

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Corrosion

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? The dream team of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer and their comedy genius is basically exactly what Corrosion is: an IPA and a sour (Yaaassss queen!). Crisp tartness with a hop-bite translates directly to the weird and wonderful world of Abbi and Illana navigating their lives in New York City in their early twenties. The vibrant chemistry between Abbi and Illana is Corrosion in human form.

It needs to be noted that Corrosion has an ABV of 6.5% which will get you on the same page as the free-wheeling, interesting, and chaotic-yet-enlightening brand of comedy that’s jam-packed into this half-hour.

Chris Verderame — Sales Manager

Which show are you loving during quarantine? ZeroZeroZero on Amazon

Which CMBC beer pairs well with your TV show? Tan Limes

Why does your beer choice pair well with this show? Drug trafficking show that takes place in Italy, Mexico, and the USA. Tan Limes is the perfect session beer to binge-watch this show.
