“I wouldn’t still be here if I didn’t love it,” he says.

Welcome Chris!

As we told you a few weeks ago, we’re expanding our operations to keep up with demand. We’ve brought in a bunch of new tanks, and we’re expanding production to 24 hours a day, five days a week.

With that added production level comes a need for a slew of new faces on the brewery floor. Jimmy’s hired eight new people heading into the summer, and we’re in the process of bringing them to you one by one.

Chris Volpe is one of them. One of our newest additions to the packaging crew, Chris is a homebrewer and musician — a perfect addition to the crew.

So, let’s meet Chris!

“Our craft beer selection, focusing on New Jersey brews, is sort of untouchable around here,” Callum says.

Spotlight On… The Local!

“Let’s pop down the local.”

Now… that’s not a thing you hear. At least, it’s not a thing you hear around here. But to Swindon, England native Callum Satchell, that’s a thing he heard people say all the time.

“In any town in England, if someone says, ‘Oh, where are you going tonight?’ ‘Just poppin’ down the local,’” he explains. “That’s the local pub in the town. We wanted to instill that in Mount Holly. What we really wanted to do was create something sourcing local products and goods, but we wanted to give it the warmth of what a local pub in England would be.”

And, with partner Derek Little, they’ve truly captured that. The Local in up-and-coming Mount Holly is warm and cozy, with the honey-colored bar taking up half of the width of the downstairs — with multiple local whiskeys, vodkas, and gins lining up the back wall and a “New Jersey Tap Takeover” happening every night of the week.

“The folks at DC Brau are great. They’ve got similar values to us and make some great beer, so there are a lot of similarities between us.”

Cape May Brewing Co. and DC Brau Collaborate on Rosé du Gose

Remember what life was like when you were seven? (No? Was it that long ago? We’ll help….)

All of your friends were seven, too. Eight-year-olds seemed like they were old enough to run for governor and six-year-olds were entirely too juvenile to hang out with. You rolled your eyes at five-year-olds and nine-year-olds…? No. Zero commonalities.

But other seven-year-olds were right up your alley. They were mature enough to understand your seven-year-old hopes and dreams, such as they were, but not so mature as to make you feel like a baby.

That’s kind of how it is in the brewing world. Cape May Brewing Co. is about to hit our seventh year in July, and along the way, we’ve been lucky enough to forge some serious friendships with other breweries from the Class of 2011.

DC Brau — the District’s first modern packaging brewery — is one of those serious friendships.

Meet Andrew!

If you’ve been to the Tasting Room over the past few weeks, you may have noticed a few new faces. As we get closer to the summer season, we’ve got a slew of new people starting — on the retail side, in production, and in distribution.

Andrew Fischer is one of those new faces. A tall and lanky guy, Cape May is born and bred into him. He’s got an effortless, laid-back style that fits in perfectly with our nautical lifestyle at the brewery. Nevertheless, it’s his love for beer that makes him a perfect fit for us.

So, without further ado, meet Andrew!

“I think it’s the variety and the small-batch appeal. You know, if someone likes Coastal Evacuation, they might want to try this beer that they’ve had every day in some new variant. And they’re flavors that you don’t necessarily see in beer.” -- Social Media and Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg

One-Off Wednesday

As a fan of CMBC, you’re undoubtedly aware of One-Off Wednesdays.

Each week, we come out with a different and unique brew — something based on one of our existing beers with some sort of additive involved. They run the gamut from simple and straightforward to off-the-wall and weird with stops along the way at inventive, innovative, and ingenious.

After three years of the program, it’s become the most anticipated and loved program on our calendar, with a diehard core of fans, all of whom congregate in the Tasting Room on Wednesdays, imbibing and discussing the merits of our latest creation.

“This year’s going to be extra fun because it falls on a First Firkin Friday, so instead of having our usual one-off sixtels, we’ll have two casks.” -- Chief Celebrations Officer Randi Friel

May the Fourth Be With You!

The choices one makes on the fourth day of May truly separate the men from the boys — or, at the very least, it separates Star Wars fans from mere mortals.

This year will be no different.

May the Fourth be with you!

Summer Sale!

Although the weather doesn’t seem to be cooperating, summer is actually right around the corner.

Seriously. It is. It’s difficult to tell, but it is.

And summer at CMBC means one thing: the arrival of Summer Catch.

This year, to kick off the season of Summer Catch, we’ve got a full weekend of fun and deals planned at our Tasting Room the weekend of April 27th.

“I’m learning more everyday,” he says. “I can’t wait to see where the road takes me.”

Welcome Sean!

Our Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm is fond of saying that he can teach anyone to work on our crew and brew beer, but a love for craft beer can’t be taught.

Every so often, though, we’re lucky to come across someone who has both: previous education and a love for beer. And Jimmy’s smart enough to snatch that person up when he’s given the chance.

And that guy happened to be in the right place at the right time: Sean McGuirl.

“It's got a great fluidity to it. It really grooves right along, so it's perfect for getting down on some smooth jazz and funk.” -- Head Brewer Brian Hink

Rhythm and Harmony

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been the exclusive beer sponsor for the Exit Zero Jazz Festival for seven years.

Jazz Fest is technically two separate festivals — one in the spring and one in the autumn. For each of those festivals, we’ve brewed a special beer — Sophisticated Lady in the spring, and King Porter Stomp in the autumn.

As far as this year’s Jazz Fest is concerned, it’s time for Sophisticated Lady to take her exit cue.

There’s a new tune making her debut in this festival: Harmonic Rhythm.
