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….

…pation.

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.

"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.
