"With fall in the air, I love sitting back with a malty Oktoberfest."

Movies and Brews

When summer sleeps and cooler air prevails, there’s nothing better than curling up under a blanket, watching a movie with a good beer.

And, toward the end of October, when everything gets spooOOooOOoooky, that movie should be as scary as humanly possible, and the beer should be Cape May.

With that in mind, we asked the Brew Crew for their favorite scary movies and which beer they’d most like to curl up with while watching them.

"I love when I get off at four,” he says, “and hopping across the street, having a beer with the guys you work with, talking with the Tasting Room folks."

Welcome Brad!

Cellarman Brad Young is no stranger to the industry. He’d been working up the street a spell at Ludlam Island for a few years before coming to Cape May.

“When I met Brad, after about 2 minutes it was obvious that he would fit in here like a glove,” says Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm. “Couple that with his previous experience working with a great brewery like Ludlam Island and it was an obvious choice to snag him up and bring him on board with us. It’s apparent that it was a good decision, too; he’s been a fantastic addition to our team here.”

Welcome Brad!

“There's always a lot going on at our Halloween Bash, and this year is no different,” Randi says.

Halloween Bash

Halloween is a favorite around the brewery. The Brew Crew goes all out when it comes to costumes, and our fans love dressing up in CMBC-themed costumes.

We’ve got a spooOOoooOOoooky bash planned for 5-9pm on the 26th. Check it out!

Things happen in Lebowski that are simply beyond the realm of possibility, yet it’s a story told so earnestly and acted so well that you end up rooting for the biggest loser of all time and his moron friends.

Why We Love Lebowski

With the release of our white cream stout Ties the Room Together, you’ve been hearing quite a bit about The Big Lebowski. And for good reason — it’s definitely one of those movies that stays with you. It celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and has remained eminently quotable since its release in 1998.

However, we get that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea… or rocks glass of white Russians, as it were. If you’ve never been able to catch the movie — even in its find-a-stranger-in-the-Alps, sanitized version on TNT — we’ll have it playing during the release party for Ties the Room Together on Friday from 5-8pm.

But… the sound will be off so that you’ll be able to hear Will Knapp play all of the Creedence known to man (and you won’t be able to hear the 260 uses of the f-word…). Fans of the film will undoubtedly show up to the party in costume as their favorite character — as The Dude, Walter, Donny, Maude, Jackie Treehorn, or one of the nihilists — and get the chance to win a CMBC and Left Hand Swag Bag. We’ll have collectible glassware and inflatable bowling, and a great time will be had.

But why? We caught up with the Brew Crew and a couple of folks from over at Left Hand to find out what they love about The Big Lebowski.

If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll love our fan favorites below. If not, swing by the party on Friday, anyway.

I like going to different areas and seeing what’s around.

Welcome Darius!

Sometimes, you simply need a change.

Such was the case with our newest driver, Darius Clark. After years in retail, he couldn’t resist the call of the open road, and wanted to become a driver.

“In his interview, I liked him immediately,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “He came highly recommended from one of our current drivers, Brandon Jones, who is turning out to be a great asset to the brewery. Darius had characteristics that spoke to our Core Values, so it wasn’t a difficult decision.”

Welcome Darius!

All in all, the collaboration was really smooth.

This Beer Really Ties the Room Together

The big news around the brewery is our collaboration with Left Hand, our cream stout, Ties the Room Together.

Well… the wait is over! Ties the Room Together hits the Tasting Room on Friday.

Definitely a hop I'll bring in to play around with on a future batch.

Hops Selection 2018

Each year, the major hops producers in the Pacific Northwest extend an invitation to some of the more prominent breweries to select their source of hops for the next production year. It’s an honor to be asked, and those of us who venture out west get their choice of crops, while others gets the commercial blends that they end up producing.

Last week, Ryan and Head Brewer Brian Hink visited three of the largest producers of hops in the world.

“It was a really good year this year,” Ryan says. “Everything we saw this year was really nice. The Azacca was really nice this year, and the Centennial was great. All of it. It was a good week. It’s such a great experience being out there. We’re really fortunate to be invited.”

We got together with Brian for a little Q&A. While they were there, we sent along photographer Conner Allen who got some seriously killer pics. Check ‘em out!

Their brews are completely unique and inventive, utterly delicious, and really just spoke to everything I love about craft beer.

Great Notion

As far as CMBC is concerned, 2018 will go down as the Year of the Collaboration.

So far this year, we’ve had Referend, DC Brau, Carton, Left Hand, and, believe it or not, we’ve got a few more up our sleeve before the year is out.

While they were traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest, faithfully choosing the crops of hops we’ll be using over the next year, they had the chance to stop by Great Notion in Portland, Oregon, to devise yet another collaboration beer to add to our quickly-growing portfolio.

Always Ready was designed specifically for heavy dry-hopping of tropical and fruity hop varieties.

Extra Ready

A lot of the time around here, we’ll brew a beer and absolutely love it but think in the back of our heads, “This could still be better if we….”

And that’s the fun thing about this business. We always get a second chance. While we strive for perfection in everything we do, with almost everything, hindsight is 20/20 and almost always involves more hops.

Take Always Ready, for example. By all accounts, Always Ready is an unbelievably good beer. It’s well-balanced, juicy, floral, and has an ABV that isn’t going to have you dancing on the table after two pints. (Unless you really want to dance on the table. In which case, live your best life. We won’t judge.)

Either way, our philosophy around here is that anything can be made better. In fact, it’s one of our Core Values: Make It Better.

So, when the occasion arose to pump up the aforementioned awesomeness that is Always Ready, we took it by the horns and dialed it up to 11. What was once Always Ready has become that much readier.

Extra Ready, if you will.
