"As a rugby club, we are a family -- I often address my teammates as ‘brother’. It makes perfect sense to join our families to promote both the sport of rugby and the beers of CMBC.”

Cape May Brew Cup

Okay. Let’s recognize a universal truth.

Generally speaking — and this certainly doesn’t cover the entire population –, but, generally speaking…

…and we hope we’re not rocking your world, here, but…

Rugby players like beer.

There are probably a few players out there who don’t, and this may be the case of the squeaky wheel getting the grease — or, in this case, the Cape May Lager — but, as stereotypical as it may be, in our limited experience, it’s true.

Rugby players like beer.

We don’t blame them.

You may be thinking, “How many rugby players could there possibly be in South Jersey?” and that’s a good question.

The answer: not many. In fact, there are only two adult men’s teams playing in the southern eight counties: the South Jersey Devils based in Cherry Hill and the Jersey Shore Sharks based in Galloway.

These guys like beer enough to approach us about sponsoring their annual championship match, and, needless to say, we said yes.

Introducing the Cape May Brew Cup!

“There isn't too much going on with this beer and that’s not a bad thing.”

Tan Limes

There’s something to be said for simplicity. (Obviously, though, not a lot.) And when the weather turns warmer, the last thing you want in life is complexity.

Particularly in the humid bogs of South Jersey.

Keep it clean. Keep it simple. Keep it ridiculously drinkable.

Cheers to Fifty Years!

Wild Wooder

Have you been to Morey’s Piers in Wildwood? We’ll get sued if we call it the Happiest Place on Earth, so we’ll call it the Happiest Place Within Walking Distance of Cape May Brewing Company.

Because it is.

Three piers of amusement park rides, two water parks, hotels, dining establishments, and all of the fun you can possibly have in Wildwood.

And their April Fool’s prank this year was on point.

So, when the subject was broached of a collaboration to celebrate Morey’s fifty years in Wildwood, we wasted no time in banging out the details.

They like fun. We like fun.

This is a collaboration made in heaven.

Twin Fin “Beach” Cleanup

Sometimes, it rains on your parade.

Such is the nature of parades, being outside and all. Unfortunately for parades, they’re large and require a street with spectators, otherwise it’s just a bunch of marching bands, floats, and beloved character balloons creating a cacophony in some school gym somewhere.

Sometimes, it rains on your beach cleanup.

Such is the nature of beach cleanups, being outside and all. Fortunately, if you’ve got a small group of committed citizens, you can make a beach cleanup happen anywhere — beach not included.

Maybe this blog should be a reminder for everyone to clean their air conditioners.

Sustainability at CMBC

A year and a half ago, Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man sat down and determined our Core Values. These are a set of principles — a code of conduct — things that we’d been doing, but it was smart of them to sit down and type them up in a Powerpoint presentation.

While everything from Be a Pro to Have Fun is important, we truly love to Be a Good Neighbor.

And that doesn’t simply mean that we should grab a burrito at the Taco Shop or carry candles from A Place on Earth in our Brewtique. We do, but we’re also charged with engaging our community near and far.

On Earth Day — and every day –, that includes being a steward to our planet. We’ve only got one, and we should leave it as we found it.

After all, it’s the only one with beer.

Summer Catch and The Bog are Back!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

No, not Christmas. There are still 249 shopping days until Christmas.

It’s not back-to-school time. You’ve got 138 days until the kiddies go back, and they’re not even off for Summer Break, yet. Slow your roll.

It’s time for the return of Summer Catch and The Bog!

It really just jumps out of the glass and is totally refreshing.

Twin Fin

With our Iron Hill collaboration, Twin Fin, it’s easy to focus our attention on all the great things: a collaboration with a regional chain of brewpubs that have been killing it in the brewing department with a portion of the proceeds going to support Surfrider Foundation South Jersey, an activist organization dedicated to the preservation of the world’s ocean.

With all of this awesome stuff, it’s easy to forget the most awesome part of this collaboration.

Y’all…

It’s a kettle-soured, session, New England IPA.

Talk about a sugar rush! Hope to find some of The Bog on my Easter egg hunt!

Easter Pairings

It’s a holiday weekend, and that means the beginning of spring break and the Easter Bunny will soon be here, filling your basket with all the chocolate you can eat. You’ll be gorging yourself on candy. We need more candy-centric holidays.

This holiday, we polled the Brew Crew for their favorite Easter candy and to pair it with one of our brews. They didn’t disappoint!

“This beer isn't really like anything else we brew.”

Sophisticated Lady, the Redux

Girl loses boy.
Girl is still dancing in the same restaurant.

Sounds like the plot of Copacabana that we told you about when we released Cococabana, right? Duke Ellington’s classic, Sophisticated Lady, is essentially the same story.

This weird collision in music notwithstanding, there’s nothing similar about the two beers. Cococabana is a delicious Pale Ale. Sophisticated Lady, on the other hand, is a delicious Table Saison brewed with exclusively locally-sourced Rabbit Hill malts.

And it’s just in time to celebrate our exclusive beer sponsorship of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival!

That first sip might make you pucker, but that fades quickly and leaves you wanting to go back for more.

Maybe She’s Brewed with It

…maybe it’s Cape Maybelline.

When you’re a woman working in a highly male-dominated field, you deserve a beer. When that field is brewing, you really get your choice as to what beer that is.

That’s why the women of the brewery bound together to conceptualize, devise, and brew Maybe She’s Brewed with It in connection with the Pink Boots Society Collaboration Brew Day and International Women’s Day.

We’re proud to release it this Saturday, April 12, at noon.
