"I like it a lot. It’s a perfect balance: not overly sweet, but not really heavy, either.”

Spotlight On… Red Rock Tap and Grill!

In a weird way, Red Bank is a lot like Cape May. They’re missing the beaches, but their downtown is trendy as hell. Many people know it as the home of Kevin Smith — the filmmaker responsible for such classic films as Clerks., Mallrats, Dogma, Chasing Amy, etc., etc., etc. — yet, it’s so much more.

Some 300 shops, numerous art galleries, a historic theatre, trendy bars, and modern restaurants are enveloped by Victorian architecture and enough historical markers to keep any self-proclaimed history buff infotained the whole day through.

Sounds a lot like home.

However, if you’ve had a Vitamin D overload and your tan is the envy of your friends, Red Bank is the perfect destination for browsing through some voguish shops, finding the perfect outfit for a night on the town, and then not having to go far to find that perfect night on the town. And, situated on the southern bank of the Navesink River, you won’t miss Cape May’s beaches for very long.

There, about as close as one can get to the river at 14 Wharf Ave., you’ll find one of the highlights of Red Bank, Red Rock Tap and Grill.

"With us and DC Brau there, it should be a fun night."


You know how sometimes you over-schedule yourself? You’ll have brunch with friends, then a barbecue at your aunt’s, then dinner with your step-mom, and then drinks with an old friend from high school?

That’s kinda how our week in DC is shaping up.

“Anyone I’ve ever talked to loves it here. They seem to look out for their employees and take care of them.”

Welcome Jenna Rae!

We’re expanding relatively quickly around here, and, while opening new territories is awesome, we’ve recognized the fact that we need someone to help maintain the ones we have. While the sales managers out in the field are great at what they do, it’s a good idea to have someone on staff to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Enter Jenna Rae Copson.

“She’s got a great personality,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “She’s tremendously business savvy, a hard worker, and she has a proven track record of positive results in her career. It doesn’t hurt that she’s got a lot of local ties and loves Cape May Brewing Company.”

Welcome Jenna Rae!

American Craft Beer Week 2019

Sometimes, around 9:30pm on a Sunday — usually after too much weekend — you’ll sit back and think, “Maybe… I just never go back to work ever again, ever.”

It’s not an unreasonable thought. Your boss may not agree, but she’s probably had the same thought once or twice, as well.

However, some weeks are easier to anticipate than others. There are some weeks when you sit back on Sunday night and think, “Bring it, life! Wachu got?!?”

Those weeks almost always involve some sort of celebration: a birthday, an anniversary, a holiday of some sort. They’re even better when it’s a weeklong celebration.

Thankfully, the good folks over at the Brewers Association devised the best weeklong celebration we know: American Craft Beer Week!

A nationwide celebration of U.S. small and independent craft brewers, this weeklong salute to everyone’s favorite beverage provides an opportunity for craft brewers to share their creativity and passion for the beverage they love.

So, this Sunday, if you’re dreading the week ahead, keep in mind that CMBC has a week full of great events to celebrate the best week of the year, beginning May 13th!

“Great, easy-drinking beer.”

Follow the Gull reviews

Back in 2017, Cape May County asked us to help them celebrate a milestone. 325 years worth of milestones, in fact.

When your home county asks you to help them celebrate, you step up, particularly when they’re celebrating a birthdate that’s only 70 years after Plymouth.

Cape May County is olllllddd, y’all.

So, we brewed up a killer IPA in Follow the Gull — a juicy and ultra-drinkable hop-bomb bursting with tropical and citrus aromas — and people loved it! They loved it so much that we knew we had to keep bringing it back.

Check out what people had to say below!

You’ll get to spend some QT with mom. What more do you need?

Mother’s Day 2019

If your mom’s anything like ours — and, let’s face it: when it comes to motherhood, all moms are pretty much the same — she thinks she’s got the greatest kid in the world.

Thankfully… mom probably doesn’t have all of the pertinent information to make an informed decision on the matter; nonetheless, as far as mom is concerned, you can do no wrong.

She forgave you that time that you rode the subway for five days to get out of doing your chores. She just shook her head knowingly that time you climbed down a storm drain to get your iPhone. She didn’t even seem to mind that time you put your name and home number on a bathroom wall with “For a good time, call…”.

So, this Mother’s Day, to thank mom for turning a blind eye to all of the dumb stuff you’ve done since you’ve been able to do dumb stuff, bring her down to the brewery.

In fact, we’ve got ten reasons why you should.

“It seemed like an awesome work environment,” he says. “Everybody’s happy. Hopefully, I’ll still be able to continue to evolve and grow in the craft beer universe.”

Welcome Joe

Hey, there, North Jersey!

We’ve slowly been making our way through the northern counties of New Jersey, and we’ve recently hired Joe Zapoitc… Zapoticz… Zapoticzny…

…“Joe Zap”…

…to open up Passaic, Bergen, Essex, and Hudson counties for us!

“Joe’s got a bunch of experience, with over seven years in beer sales,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “More importantly, he really wants to get our name out there. He’s got a real desire to spread Cape May’s beers throughout Northeast New Jersey. When you combine that with a last name that’s as difficult to pronounce as my own, I know Joe’s going to do a great job here.”

Welcome Joe Zap!

“There are a ton of great female brewers in the Philly area, and I’m looking forward to tasting some of the things they’ve done.”

Bold Women & Beer Festival

The Year of the Woman keeps getting better for women in the brewing industry, particularly at CMBC.

They dreamed up a killer beer in collaboration with the Pink Boots Society — a national organization of women in the beer industry — with Maybe She’s Brewed with It — a light and spritzy kettle sour with cherries and mangoes.

They got together and brewed it up on International Women’s Day back in March, with a brew day including Rabbit Hill’s Hillary Barile, Cape May County Chamber of Commerce President Vicki Clark, and Assemblywoman Carol Murphy.

Now, this weekend, some of the women of the brewery will celebrate women in brewing at the very first Bold Women & Beer Festival in Philly!

It’s light and tastes like summer.

Tan Limes Reviews

One of the great things about working at a brewery is that we get to taste test everything that we make before it goes out for release.

Tan Limes is no exception. And everyone has been loving the fresh and zesty lime flavor with a hint of Cape May Sea Salt.

We decided to hit up the Brew Crew to find out what it is that they all love about it.

Check it out!

“It has this malty complexity that’s rich and indulgent, and when paired with the bourbon characteristics that came through from the barrel aging, it has this beautiful velvety texture that pairs amazingly well off of the base beer.”

Bourbon Barrel Aged Concrete Ship

We see you shiver. With antici….


That’s pretty much how barrel aging goes. We’ll start on a project, then shiver with anticipation for about a year until we finally get to reap the fruits of our labors.

It’s the case of this week’s release: we’ve had our fan-favorite Russian Imperial stout, Concrete Ship, aging for ten months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels, and the anticipation is finally over.
