Crack open a delicious can of Crushin' It -- or three --, grab a chair in the backyard, and social distance yourself while you fantasize about a life that once again contains your favorite live music.

The Brew Crew Playlist

This week, we asked the Brew Crew to contribute to a playlist for your listening pleasure, and they didn’t disappoint!

We received suggestions as wildly varied as Frank Sinatra and Pink Floyd, from old-school Dave Matthews Band to a decidedly new-school South African artist named Bongeziwe Mabandla — the suggestions were as widely varied as the Brew Crew itself.

And only one repeated artist! The War on Drugs, suggested by both Innovation Director Brian Hink and Sales Manager Chris Verderame, who now have to run off together and be best friends forever. Or, at the very least, go see The War on Drugs together when we’re allowed to be around humans again. 

We’re hoping that moment is soon. Whether you love seeing big names in huge arenas, paying through the nose for a watered-down Big Brew or you prefer checking out local bands at the dive bar around the corner, paying reasonable prices for a Cape May brew, we can all agree that this shutdown has hit the music industry particularly hard.

Luckily, many artists are working hard, livestreaming full shows, live sets, and new music. Hopefully, you’ll find your new favorite artist among those below. Enjoy!

American Craft Beer Week 2020

American Craft Beer Week kicks off on Monday!

It’s one of our favorite weeks in the industry, and, while we usually plan events and initiatives and beer releases around it, this year, with COVID rearing its ugly head throughout the world, a lot of those events and initiatives need to take a year off.

Luckily, the Brewers Association — the national association of brewers who host American Craft Beer Week — have found some ways to still make 2020 a success!

"To see what Cape May Brewing Company has done for the growth of the Cape May Airport, it’s been amazing.

Get to Know Courtney Rosenberg!

We’ve been here, proudly brewing our beers, since 2011. In the beginning, it was Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man working things on their own, brewing beer, tending bar, and delivering our brews to the few accounts we had.

It didn’t take long for them to realize that they couldn’t do it all on their own, and they began bringing on more staff, several of whom are still here.

One of them is our Graphic Design and Social Media Alchemist, Courtney Rosenberg.

“Courtney brings an inspiring amount of creative passion and enthusiasm for the brewery to the marketing team,” says Marketing Director Alicia Grasso. “She works tirelessly to Make It Better each and every day through an endless stream of innovative, focused ideas and inventive solutions to further the brewery’s goals. Her deep love for Cape May Brewing Company keeps everyone’s eyes on the prize, and her innate understanding of the craft beer world ripples throughout the company.”

And, while she may occasionally interrupt our blog writing to send unsolicited TikTok videos or pictures of her beloved dogs, Dock, Mickey, and Max, she’s always been Cape May Brewing Co.’s biggest cheerleader and consistently puts the brewery first, always caring for our brand and passionate about keeping our fans up to speed.

You’ve undoubtedly seen Courtney in the Tasting Room, during events, on rainy Tuesdays, and everything in between, snapping pictures, taking video, and ensuring that everything looks as great as possible for your visit.

Now, it’s time to learn a bit more about her. Meet Courtney!

Mom deserves a treat from her favorite brewery.

Mother’s Day Gifts

This year — more than ever — mom deserves a beer.

Maybe it’s your mom. She’s supported you through thick and thin. She’s lifted you up through life’s most difficult battles. She’s set you up and sent you on your way.

Maybe it’s someone else’s mom. She’s the mother of a friend who listened and advised when the news was a little too delicate for your own mom. She’s the aunt who fed you as often as she fed your cousins. She’s the mother of your own mother who stepped in when no one else could.

Maybe it’s the mother of your children. She’s juggling working from home and educating the little ones. She’s putting on a brave face during this difficult time. She’s appearing to hold it together when everything is on the verge of falling apart.

Or, maybe it’s you. You’re all of those women combined, and you deserve to treat yourself.

No matter the mother is in your life right now, next Sunday, May 7th, is her day. Make it special with some swag or some brews from Cape May Brewing Company.

We’re Still Crushin’ It

Over the two-and-a-half years we’ve been brewing Crushin’ It, one thing is certain: our fans absolutely love this beer.

And for good reason! Who would have thought that an IPA with orange juice could be so delicious and so refreshing and so completely hit the spot in every imaginable way? 

From a beer that began as the winner in one of our internal homebrewing competitions to scaling it up this month and completely selling out of it within a few weeks, we’re extraordinarily gratified that our fans have embraced this beer so thoroughly.

In fact, earlier this week, we released yet another small batch of Crushin’ It in the Brewtique, and the response was exactly what we expected: our fans went crazy for it.

While our fans love this beer, our experience with Crushin’ It this year has been a wild ride — for us, for our fans, and for a brand we have all come to know and love.

“First one to review the 2020 batch. Best beer ever, basically unreal.”

Folks are Loving The Grove!

At long last, The Grove is here!

If you missed it last autumn, The Grove is our unbelievable citrus shandy with a reasonable 4.5% ABV, and you’re definitely not going to want to miss it this time around.

This snappy, super bright, ridiculously refreshing summer shandy drinks like you picked the fruit this morning, squeezed it into a glass, and turned it into the most intensely crushable beer you’ve ever seen. Sweet and tart, the brilliant aromas of The Grove will whisk you away, making you imagine that you’re walking through a citrus grove at harvest.

It’s available now through our retail partners in New Jersey and will be available in eastern Pennsylvania beginning on Monday. We’ll have it in Delaware by mid-May and in the Tasting Room by the end of the month.

While we’ve got an intense roster of fruit beers this summer with The Bog, Crushin’ It, and Tan Limes, The Grove is batting cleanup for a reason: this beer completely knocks it out of the park.

Read what our fans are saying about this phenomenally delicious brew!

Cinco de Mayo, The Home Edition

Next Tuesday is Cinco de Mayo! 

Even though 2020 is dragging like a brewer showing up for a 7:30 shift on a Monday, it’s kind of amazing that we’ve made it to May. You deserve a celebration!

So, while this particular Cinco de Mayo is going to be a bit different than those in the past — you’re definitely not going to be closing your favorite bar this year — you can still honor the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 in style.

And, let’s face it: if you’re looking to celebrate a Mexican holiday, there’s no better way than with a delicious Mexican-style lager with lime and sea salt. Luckily, for your drinking pleasure, we’ve got Tan Limes — and three great ways to celebrate this Cinco de Mayo at home.

“With a light ABV of 4.5%, The Grove is significantly more balanced than some of our other fruit beers, yet also has a brilliant orangey, grapefruity, tangeriney finish.”

Scaling Up The Grove

Last year, we brewed up an unbelievably delicious citrus shandy for the Tasting Room and called it The Grove

While it was released at the tail end of the summer season, our fans in Cape May couldn’t get enough of it! Fans who were lucky enough to try this limited release were overwhelmingly positive in their reviews.

It only makes sense that, this summer, we brewed up a ton of it, canned it up, and are releasing it for distribution throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware!

Netflix and Beer

This is going on FOREVER, isn’t it?

If you’re anything like us, you’ve cooked every possible dish in your repertoire, you’ve cleaned your house from top to bottom and back to the top again, and you’ve had a Zoom party with every person you’ve ever come into contact with in the history of your life. Ever. 

We’re glad to have had the opportunity to provide the beer for those parties.

In all likelihood, at this point, you’re looking for new shows to binge on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc., etc. You’re done with Tiger King — because your friends and family didn’t give you a choice –, but it’s time for something new, and you need suggestions.

So, this week, we hit up the Brew Crew to find out what they’re watching, and we asked them to pair the perfect Cape May Brewing Co. beer with their show.

Check it out!

Some of Those Tasting Room Feelings….

Remember the good ol’ days — back in early March — when you could come down to the Tasting Room, have a few beers, and hang out with friends? 

Good times, they were. Good times.

We know we’re missing the awesome times spent in the Tasting Room, and we’re guessing that you are, too. Grabbing some of our brews online for curbside pickup or delivery helps, but we know that it’s a far — though thoroughly appreciated — cry from how things were.

It would be terrific if you could recreate the feeling of our Tasting Room in your very own home. Luckily, we’ve got a few ways for you to feel a little bit closer to one of your favorite places while maintaining your social distancing practices.

Check out these fun ways to attempt to recreate that Tasting Room feeling at home!
