"Tan Limes is the perfect beer for the beach because it's made with locally-sourced sea salt -- great for a salty walk near the ocean!"


The weather this week has been nothing short of gorgeous. We’re thinking that Punxatawney Phil is a lying, stinking rodent who lies about when spring will begin with his lying and his shadow and his lies. Six weeks of winter, pshaw! Spring is here!

Okay. We know we shouldn’t tempt the weather gods, particularly in South Jersey. But there are daffodils beginning to peek out of the leaves that we never raked last autumn.

And with the release of The Bog and Tan Limes this weekend, we’re getting very excited for the return of spring, and so is the rest of the Brew Crew! 

So, this week, we caught up with them to find out which springtime activities they’re most looking forward to getting back to, and which of our two springtime releases they want along for the ride. (Hint: Tan Limes won by a landslide!)

Celebrate International Women’s Day with Beer of the Woman!

This week, to celebrate International Women’s Day, we have a guest blogger: Marketing Associate Casey McBride!

Have you heard?! March 8th is International Women’s Day! In its honor, the women of Cape May Brewing Company have brewed yet another beer to celebrate women’s extraordinary accomplishments in brewing and beyond: Beer of the Woman!

Brewed with peaches, apricots, and the tropical, citrusy Pink Boots Society Hop Blend, there’s no better way to celebrate the Year of the Woman than with this easy-drinking Belgian-style Blonde Ale, available Friday, only in the Tasting Room.

And we’ll be kicking off Beer of the Woman this weekend with a fundraiser this Friday, where we’ll be donating $1 from each pint sold to the Pink Boots Society. You won’t want to miss it!

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend

Can you believe that it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day?!?

That means that it’s been a year since the first COVID lockdown. We’ve been through a lot over the past twelve months, but making it this far deserves a celebration. 

So, we’ve got a great weekend planned, filled with contests, prizes, and, of course, great beer. We’re kicking things off at noon on Friday, March 12th, and letting the good times roll until we close our doors at 7pm on Sunday.

"They’re refreshing, they’re crisp, they’re snappy, they have character. Cape May Hard Seltzer is such a different product from anything else out on the market.”

At Last: Cape May Hard Seltzer!

Have you ever had a day that’s been circled on your calendar months ahead of time, and, every so often, you’d flip your calendar pages ahead, simply to gaze longingly at that day in anticipation of all of the wonderful things to come?

Well, folks…


We’ve been amping up, getting ready to release Cape May Hard Seltzers into the world, and now, in the Tasting Room and Brewtique, you can find six-packs of each flavor, as well as mixed, 24-can cases of our grapefruit, mango, black cherry, and watermelon seltzers beginning Friday, February 26th, with 12-can variety packs hitting shelves throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware on Monday, March 1st!

“Sea Chest hits all the right notes.”

Sea Chest is getting Scaled Up for Distro!

Last winter, we released a Tasting Room-Only beer that ended up exceeding all expectations. A little New England IPA called Sea Chest, it quickly became a favorite of staff and visitors alike.

Brewed with Golden Promise, honey malt, flaked rye, flaked oats, and flaked wheat, Sea Chest is copiously dry-hopped with Cashmere, Motueka, and Sultana. Notes of pineapple, lime, coconut, and orange sherbet are wrapped in a blanket of juicy hops.

It was such a hit that we brought back Sea Chest for round two sometime in midsummer last year, and it’s back for round three — this time scaled up for release throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware!

"If people don’t feel comfortable coming inside the Brewtique to pick up their beer-to-go or merch, this is a great option for them to get their beer in a safe and responsible way."

Introducing… Curbside Pickup!

It’s been slightly over eleven months — almost an entire year — that we’ve been living through this pandemic, and, throughout that time, Cape May Brewing Company has made a number of improvements to how we serve our customers and visitors.

We upgraded the Beer Garden. We found new and interesting places to add tables in the Tasting Room. We added the Brewtanical Garden. We’re cleaning and handwashing and mask-wearing as if our lives depend on it — because they do.

As the pandemic has ebbed and flowed over the past eleven months, we’ve closed, re-opened, expanded, contracted, and pivoted, all as the governor and the CDC have mandated.

At this point, the Brewtanical Garden is closed for the season, the Beer Garden is open if you’re willing to brave the elements, we have sixteen tables in the Tasting Room, and we’re allowing up to ten people at a time to shop inside the Brewtique.

Yet, we’re still searching for ways to improve our customer experience safely. So, this week, we’re excited to announce a new service: Curbside Pickup!

We caught up with Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith to get the lowdown.

"It’s brilliant! It’s tart, lively, and very refreshing."

Get the lowdown on Key Lime Corrosion!

This week, we got together over Zoom with Production Planning and Specialty Brewing Manager Brian Hink to get the lowdown on Key Lime Corrosion.

For Key Lime Corrosion, we took our revered sour IPA, Corrosion, already bursting with Citra and Centennial, and we turned it up a notch with a hefty dose of key lime juice and Motueka hops. Corrosion’s bright and citrusy notes of orange and lemon are ramped up with intense lime aromas, intensifying the tangy and vibrant finish, with puckering tartness and vibrant hops hanging in the balance.

Key Lime Corrosion hits shelves throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware this coming Monday. Don’t miss it!

Beertender Appreciation Day!

World Bartender Day is February 24th, so we figured that this was the perfect time to express our appreciation for those folks behind the bar, slinging pints all day: our Beertenders.

While the typical bartender needs to know how to make every drink known to man off the top of their heads, our Beertenders have an even more herculean task: they need to know every single variety of hop, how each of them acts when in combination with every single other variety of hop, an endless list of malts, how they act with each other, how they act with the hops, how those flavors change based upon which yeast is used, how most of that information is completely upended in a sour beer, as well as every single beer ever created by Cape May Brewing Company or any other brewery on the planet so that when one of our visitors come through the door and says, “You know, I really liked this beer I had at this tiny brewery on Tierra del Fuego back in 1973. I don’t remember its name or what style it was or anything else at all about it, but do you have anything like that?” they can say, “Yes, you should try our 2020 Boughs of Barley, specifically the sherry variant, but you’re going to want to let it sit a minute and warm up a bit before you dive in because that’s going to release the flavors and aromas that most closely resemble that Tierra del Fuegian beer you had in 1973.”

And they do exactly that. Every. Single. Day.

Because they’re freakin’ rock stars.

So, to celebrate World Bartender Day, we caught up with eight current and former Beertenders to find out what they love about working at Cape May Brew Co.
