“I’m looking forward to learning a lot of new things. I don’t expect to begin brewing beer, but I’m interested in understanding the science behind the brewing process.”

Welcome Steve!

When the world shut down in March, a number of companies found the need to lay off several of their workers. Luckily for many of the foodservice workers in the area, we found ourselves needing more people, so we hired several. 

“Steve is a newcomer to the craft beer world but comes with plenty of hospitality experience,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “Steve has been a great asset to the Brewtanical Garden this summer and is quickly honing his skills in the Beer Garden and Brewtique, and I’m looking forward to great things from him.”

Welcome our newest Barback and Brewtique Associate, Steve Cifelli!

The House that Beer Built

Cape May County is one of the least-populated counties in New Jersey, yet has one of the highest rates of unemployment in the state. As you might imagine, there is a tremendous need for affordable housing in the county.

Thankfully, the county’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity strives each day to fill that need. Bringing people together to build houses, community, and hope, Cape May’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity seeks to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

And, during this time of economic and social uncertainty, when so much is questionable, their mission is more important than ever.

So, when they reached out to us — as well as Cape May County’s other nine breweries — to brew a beer to support their mission with the funds going to build a house right up the street in Upper Township, the answer was, “Yes, yes, a million times yes.”

Halloween Candy and CMBC Brews

It’s Halloween!

…finally…

For some reason, it feels like we began dreaming about Halloween back in April. Knowing that Summer 2020 was going to be a bust, we turned our eyes to the chocolate-filled, spooky sweetness that is this ancient holiday.

And, at Cape May Brewing Company, we’ve been determined to make this Halloween one for the books. We’ve got a killer weekend planned, and we’ve got some incredible beer releases for you to enjoy.

But, let’s face it, this holiday is about more than parties. It’s about candy. If anyone says otherwise, they’re wrong. (Okay, it gives our friends who thrive on spookiness a day to thrive, but, other than that, it’s about candy.)

So, this week, we hit up the Brew Crew to find out their favorite Halloween candy, and, since we’re a brewery, we asked them to pair it with their favorite Cape May Brewing Company beer.

Double Crushed

Why only crush it once when you can crush it twice?

That seems to be the philosophy espoused by production, at least when it comes to our latest Tasting Room-only release, Double Crushed.

Twice the fruits of Crushin’ It. Quadruple the hops of Crushin’ It. Twice the ABV (minus ½ because 16% would be obnoxious).

Double Crushed releases on Friday, only in the Tasting Room!

"I like the crew. Everybody’s on the same page. Everybody cares about the product."

Welcome Emily!

Let’s face it, without our brewers, we’re basically a bunch of people trying to convince you to buy empty cans and serving you pints of air while you sit outside. That’s why it’s important for us to find someone who not only knows what they’re doing but is also the right fit for Cape May Brewing Company.

Boy, did we find that — and more! — with Emily Siddall.

I am very glad Emily has joined the team here at Cape May Brewing Company,” says Vice President of Operations Brandon Greenwood. “She has hit the ground running, is a great cultural fit, and is already adding value and brewing expertise to the business.

Welcome Emily!

"New Jersey has honestly been my favorite state to live in.”

Welcome Kevin!

While breweries are popping up everywhere around here, it’s uncommon to find applicants with brewery experience. Not so with Kevin Riley.

“Kevin came in for an interview right around when we opened the Brewtanical Garden,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “After sitting down for the interview, we knew that Kevin was the right fit for our team. He had brewery experience, which can be hard to come by, so Kevin brought a wealth of brewery knowledge to our team, having worked in several aspects of the brewing process, from cellaring right up to customer service. Kevin is always looking to help more where he can, with his next goal of getting forklift certified.”

Welcome Kevin!

Hops Selection, COVID Edition

Each year, our crack team of hops selectors travels to the Yakima Valley out in the Pacific Northwest to select our hops for the upcoming year. You see, that’s where hops come from, so going to the source allows them to get the freshest selection.

And, let’s face it, a week in the Yakima Valley in September is a very welcome break from Cape May.

However, this year, COVID put a damper on those plans. We had to select our hops from afar. Instead of visiting our hops suppliers, our crack team of hops selectors submitted their selections in advance and did their rubbings and their smellings and their selectings in the breakroom at HQ.

“It definitely had a different feel this year,” says Production Planning and Special Projects Manager Brian Hink. “I like the immersion of being out there — out there for a very specific reason — and to catch up with our reps and socialize a bit, too, but the main reason being the hops. It’s all business when we’re there. At the brewery, there are obviously a lot of other things going on: the first one was a very focused selection, but the subsequent three all felt like we were just trying to fit them into our otherwise very full schedules. So, it was really nice being able to get back to work right away after the selection, but I did miss having our time specifically dedicated to just simply selecting hops.”

Cape May Coffee Stout

We’ve been brewing coffee stouts for years, practically since we opened our doors. In that time, we’ve learned a lot — about coffee and how to best present it in a beer.

So, the final culmination of all of those efforts come to fruition today: Cape May Coffee Stout releases in 12oz cans!

Five-Bullet Fridays

If you subscribe to our weekly newsletter, The Growler, last week you got a peek into one of our internal emails when we accidentally sent it out to the entire world.

While you were certainly never meant to see it, judging from the many emails Ryan received in response, everyone thought it was pretty cool. 

So, this week, we decided to let you in on this tidbit of our company culture.
