“I hope they buy both! The orange and the grapefruit complement each other well, so there’s no reason not to.”

Scaling Up Crushin’ It

Last year, we released a number of extensions to our Crushin’ It line. Grapefruit, Mango, and Blueberry Lemon were all Tasting Room-only releases last year, and, to put it mildly, they were incredibly successful.

The releases were so successful that you crashed this website trying to order them. Remember that?!? Yeah… that was just a little stressful for us in the marketing department, but, in a weird way, it was also kind of amazing.

So… obviously… there was a demand for these beers. Our Tasting Room-only releases are kind of a test balloon: if they do well in the Tasting Room, there’s a good chance we’ll scale them up for a wide release.

That’s why we’re releasing Grapefruit Crushin’ It today!

“The weather is warmer, so set your clock to island time and come enjoy our new margarita seltzer!"

Floral Fiesta Friday

Are you feeling like summer yet? At Cape May Brewing Company, the summer never ends — particularly when we’re throwing a Floral Friday!

So, on Friday, April 30th, from noon to 7pm, break your favorite Hawaiian shirt out of the mothballs and join us!

We make every day Earth Day!

Earth Day!

We hope not to offend Mars or Jupiter — or, sadly, Pluto (pour one out for our homie…) — but next Thursday is Earth Day.

And we should celebrate! We only get one planet — it’s up to us to steward this blue marble, rocketing alone through the infinite vastness of space. It’s our home for a cosmically short amount of time: we’re here and gone in the blink of an eye, but Mother Earth is eternal. (We hope.)

Leave things better than we found them, that’s our mission on this planet. There is much work to be done: the world only spins forward. All we can do at this point is make an attempt to clean up the messes of previous generations while ensuring that future generations can enjoy themselves here as we have.

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

So, in honor of this singular day, we have ten reasons you should make Cape May Brewing Company a part of your celebrations.

“More like That Cherry Lime Great Great!”

That Cherry Lime Good Good is Back!

It’s back by popular demand — That Cherry Lime Good Good!

A tart and zesty wheat ale sweetened to perfection, this is an Imperial version of Foreshore Shandy, a much loved, retired brew. The cherry lime shandy you know and love, just a whole lot bigger.

Releasing at noon on Friday, you’ll only be able to find this one in our Tasting Room and Brewtique.

Read what folks are saying!

We’re Hiring!

Each spring, we come out with two things:

  1. Our awesome summer beers like Crushin’ It, Tan Limes, The Bog, and The Grove, and
  2. A laundry list of jobs that need to be filled as we head into our busy season.

And these jobs run the gamut! If you’re looking for something part-time to fill out your summer hours, we have plenty of those; however, if you’re looking for a career change to a rewarding, fast-paced job with excellent pay and benefits, working at a growing company, look no further!

“Cape May Brewing Company and Cape Beverage are workplaces where people matter,” says Director of People Operations Christine Bry. “Your ideas are valued, you are encouraged to ask questions, and you are celebrated for your hard work. The work may be physically tiring and mentally challenging, yet the benefits of sharing in the rewards with a team who cares about you are worth all you put in.”

Check out our open positions below!

“We really thought to make it as enjoyable of an experience, but also make sure that the process is as streamlined as it can be."

Ch-ch-ch-changes… in the Tasting Room

If the past year has taught us anything at all, it’s that just about everything you’ve ever known is subject to change. Sometimes they’re good changes, sometimes not-so-much, but, either way, this pandemic has certainly kept everyone on their toes.

Take the experience of visiting the brewery: as more information regarding the pandemic has come to light and as the outlook has grown more optimistic, we’ve changed and modified the experience multiple times, from being closed completely to creating a take-out window to allowing for outdoor dining to expanding the Brewtique to opening the Brewtanical Garden, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

We’ve been rolling with the punches, and you guys have been right there, along for the ride. So, we wanted to clue you in to a number of changes that you may encounter on your next visit. We got together with Tasting Room Manager Jake Hauser and Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith to get all the deets.

”I love these new IPA releases because they usually signal a change in season, and boy am I ready for spring! I can't wait to welcome some warmer weather with this beer.”

Make Fast

When we come out with a new beer, we could simply brew it up and rush it to production, cutting corners left and right, in pursuit of the Almighty Dollar, but that’s not how we do things at Cape May Brew Co.

Because, much like Meat Loaf, we would do anything for beer, but we won’t do that. 

We take our time, trialing recipes, putting brews through our R.A.D. program, ensuring that each and every aspect of our beers are perfect before they come anywhere near the chance to touch your lips.

So, when you see a beer with a name like Make Fast — the next release in our rotating IPA series, featuring a blend of Sabro and Cashmere hops, brilliant with aromas of sweet fruits, and tasting like you’re drinking freshly-pressed pineapple juice from a recently-harvested coconut –, your best assumption is that the name refers to something that fits our brand — nautical and intensely Cape May.

“The people here are great. They welcomed me in with open arms. That’s what I like about it: it seems like a family environment. I feel like I have a second family. It’s great.”

Welcome Jake!

One of the good things about starting as a packaging technician is that, while there are a lot of skills that are particularly germane to the job, there are a lot of transferable skills that someone may have picked up along the way. 

“Jake is a good guy that was excited to come work for us,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves. “His employment background has a lot of parallels to a production brewery, so hiring him was an easy call.”

Welcome Jake Craley!

April Fools!

Fooled Again!

With all that’s been going on, who among us couldn’t use a little more relaxation in our lives?

A nice, relaxing facial including The Bog? A Sea Chest foot bath? A Devil’s Reach massage? A Tan Limes lager mask? Sounds great to us!

That’s probably why this year’s April Fools joke went over so well: judging from the comments, this is an idea that a lot of people could get behind. Maybe a beer spa can be Ryan’s next big venture!

“It gets more beer into the hands of our customers.”

Cellar Four

Over the past several months, we’ve been undertaking a relatively large expansion to our brewing facility. We had a massive cooler at production that, since we’ve opened Cape Beverage in Egg Harbor Township, we no longer really need.

So, it only makes sense to tear it down and make more space for brewing! And, over the past several months, we’ve been doing exactly that: repurposing that large, empty room as “Cellar 4”.

We caught up with Vice President of Brewing Operations Brandon Greenwood and Brewery Operations Manager James Fox to get the low-down on this upgrade.
