“I love it. I really love the pace of it. Particularly my job: I just come in and work. That was another big part of what I enjoyed.”

Welcome Chris!

When you’re looking for a change of pace — and you love beer — there’s no better place to begin a career change than in the packaging department.

“When I interviewed Chris,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves, “I could tell that he was a hard worker. Having come from the hospitality industry — another multifaceted industry where you’re frequently asked to do a million things at once –, I knew he wouldn’t have a problem handling the multitasking we’d be throwing at him. He’s a great guy and really interested in learning about the beer industry.”

Welcome Chris Baruffi!

Spotlight On… Grain on the Rocks!

Just across the Delaware Bay from Cape May, at the sister terminal of our beloved Cape May-Lewes Ferry, you’ll find a new eatery, open for only a few months: Grain on the Rocks. 

Part gastropub, part neighborhood bar, part amazing views, and all heart and soul, Grain on the Rocks isn’t only a respite for the weary traveler, it’s a destination in and of itself.

As we expand our distribution in Delaware and gleefully welcome back our Spotlight On series after a long, COVID-fuelled hiatus, we were delighted to celebrate both of those events with a visit to this soon-to-be favorite of beer lovers everywhere.

"I come here every day hoping to have fun. If we’re all having fun at work, then it’s a good day.”

Welcome Jonathan!

One of the great things about working in the Tasting Room is that, while it’s a great full-time gig, it’s also a fun second job for a lot of people in many different walks of life. From retirees to teachers, it’s a great job if you’re looking for some extra cash in a fun environment at a great company.

Now, we can add full-time firefighters to that list.

“Jon was hired just a few days before we went into quarantine and never actually got to work a shift,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “Since reopening, Jon has been one of the hardest workers in the Tasting Room: he comes in every day ready to complete whatever is asked. Being a firefighter he also brings a strong sense of safety to the team, and his skills are constantly being utilized.”

Welcome Jonathan Edwards!

Two Spectacular Releases!

It’s a double-release week!

We love it when we get to release two beers in one week — there’s a lot of buzz around the Tasting Room, preparing for the influx of fans, and getting excited about a new brew on the menu.

Regardless of our excitement about releasing two beers, these are two beers that you should definitely be excited about. 

The first, an old favorite: Watermelon Wheat! And the second, a new favorite: Strawberry Sunset!

Both release on Friday, only through the Tasting Room!

We’re Hiring!

The hits just keep coming in 2020 — first a global pandemic, then the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Luckily, the brewing industry was considered essential throughout the pandemic, and Cape May Brewing Company and Cape Beverage have been able to weather the storm. 

In fact, we’re hiring for three positions: Tasting Room Manager, CDL Distribution Specialist, and Brewer.

“Oh sure, it's easy to pick holes in a story about a weather system that makes it possible for sharks to fly and take to the streets, but that's the whole point of movies like this: fabulous in-home commentary.”

Shark Week

It’s the most terrifying week of the year — well… aside from literally every other week of 2020 — Shark Week!

One of the most anticipated weeks of the summer, over the past few years, it’s grown from a week of informational programming on the Discovery Channel to a celebratory week regaling the truth and the myth of sharks, shark attacks, and shark lore.

On an episode of 30 Rock, Tracy Jordan compelled us all to “live every week like it’s Shark Week,” and at Cape May Brewing Company, we will heed his advice with an event celebrating everything we love about Shark Week!

“Everyone is so helpful. When you have a problem, they actually care, rather than putting it off to the side.”

Welcome Caitlyn!

As the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we were in the midst of bringing on a few new faces in the Tasting Room. Luckily, as the pandemic has dragged on, several of them have proven themselves to be a fantastic addition to the team. 

Including Caitlyn Crain.

“Working with Cait has been a great experience!” says Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith. “She started as the COVID quarantine started and has brought such a positive attitude to work every single day. She has been a quick study in the Brewtique and always has great suggestions to make us even more efficient. She has a fantastic sense of humor and a super friendly personality which both our customers and staff love! She jumps right in to help whenever she can and has been an awesome addition to our team!” 

Welcome Caitlyn!

Banner Planes

It’s not a day at the Jersey Shore without a few traditions. You’ll need a cone from Kohr Brothers — that’s a given. We could debate all day about who’s got the best pizza, but you know you’re getting a gigantic, oversized slice from somewhere. At some point, a gull will steal some food from a soon-to-be-crying child.

And you will see a banner plane.

Several times throughout the day, a small, single-engine plane will fly overhead, trailing behind it a banner advertising… well… just about everything.

Including Cape May Brewing Company.

If you’ve seen our banners, you already know that they definitely create some conversation. And now, you could win a prize if you post a shot to your Instagram!

Grapefruit Hard Seltzer

At Cape May Brewing Company, we’ve been brewing beer pretty well for nearly a decade. We’ve had our ups and downs, our strikes and gutters, our winners and losers, but, for the most part, we’ve done a pretty good job brewing beer.

But, we also know that we exist in an extraordinarily dynamic industry. Things change. Tastes change. Styles come and go, some with more staying power than others. 

And that’s one of the great things about this industry — while we’d probably be fine sticking to brewing only our core brands of Cape May IPA, Coastal Evacuation, Always Ready, Cape May White, and Devil’s Reach, that doesn’t exactly align with our Core Value of Fostering Creativity. The variety of products that we produce is one of the most important aspects of Cape May Brewing Company.

Yet, every so often, a movement in the broader industry comes along and shakes things up a bit. And, you know, we like shaking things up. 

The surge in popularity of hard seltzers was one of them. So, we’re proud to release our entree into the seltzer ring: our Grapefruit Hard Seltzer releases in cans for the first time on Friday, only available through the Brewtique!

Suspending Home Delivery

When Governor Murphy allowed for home delivery from breweries beginning in March, Cape May Brewing Company immediately pivoted to offer this service to Cape May, Atlantic, and Cumberland counties. With this new program, everyone who suddenly found themselves confined to their homes was able to continue to enjoy our products.

Since the stay-at-home order has been lifted and we’re seeing increased traffic to our Beer Garden and Brewtanical Garden, we’ve made the careful, thoughtful, and intentional decision to suspend our home delivery program, beginning today.

Our fans will continue to have the ability to order our products online for curbside pickup — including preorders of our upcoming Grapefruit Hard Seltzer, beginning Thursday night at 7pm. In addition, we hope that you continue to give your patronage to our statewide network of retailers: you can find one near you at our Beer Finder

We owe a debt of gratitude to the fans who have used this service over the past few months, and we hope to see you again soon at the Tasting Room!
