“It’s really a great summery DIPA,” Jimmy says, “perfect for these warmer days.”

Double Dry-Hopped Coastal Evacuation

Variations on a theme.

This is a concept that’s as old, at least, as music itself. Handel, Rachmaninoff, Copland, and just about everyone else has done it. Mozart wrote twelve variations on “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” They take a melody — “Twinkle, Twinkle” is 48, relatively repetitive bars — and they play around with it. The basic thematic material is still there, but really only recognizable if you know what you’re looking for.

We do the same thing in brewing. We’ll take a well-known beer, add some stuff to it, and it’ll be new and interesting and much more exciting than the original brew.

And, since Coastal Evacuation is music to our ears, for our next limited can release, we’re double dry-hopping it with Galaxy and Mosaic, releasing from the Brewtique on Saturday at 11am.

Thousands of people will be going there all summer long, and we’ll get exposure to visitors from around the world.

Reinventing The Wheel

The Wheel.

It’s one of the oldest inventions known to man, having been around about as long as beer itself. The Neolithics had them. The Mesopotamians had them. Pat Sajak’s been standing over one for-ev-er.

Now, the third-largest observation wheel in the country is open in Atlantic City.

And Cape May brews are there.

It’s gotten us to change our outlook on everything.

Art on Beer

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but in the beer world, that’s exactly what we attempt to do on a regular basis.

When you’re walking down the beer aisle or perusing the coolers in your local shop, we know that an interesting label design is what’s going to pique your interest. If it catches your eye, you’re more likely to pick it up and give it a read.

That’s why graphic design is so important to breweries.

This week, as part of Philly Beer Week, our very own Social Media & Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg sat on a panel at U-Bahn, just a stone’s throw from City Hall, discussing Art on Beer.

Our tri-athletes!

Escape the Cape weekend is a big one in Cape May. Several thousand competitors descend upon our fair town, biking, running, and swimming in some of the most beautiful terrain you’ll find in competitive triathlons.

We’re thrilled to be part of it each year, brewing a special beer — Escape the Cape — to mark the occasion.

This year will be truly something special — three members of the Brew Crew have agreed to run a relay team for us! We got together with Paul Greer, Lauren Frech, and Caitlin Gard to get their thoughts on swimming/running/biking their leg of this award-winning triathlon.

I don’t know why I didn’t do this a long time ago.

Welcome Dave!

You’d probably be surprised at how many teachers we have working here, either over the summer or as a second job.

Our latest Beertender is no different. Dave Morrison teaches third- and fourth-grade music at Maud Abrams Elementary School in North Cape May.

And now, he’s the latest member of the Brew Crew!

Welcome Dave!

Did DC

This past weekend was a whirlwind in our nation’s capital!

We debuted Rosé du Gose and L’Attitude in DC this weekend, and we poured Coastal Evacuation and Phantom Crew at SAVOR.

The crowd at SAVOR was really diggin’ Phantom Crew. A fellow brewery owner mentioned that it was the best Flanders-style Red that he’s ever tasted and he kept sending people to our booth to check it out.

We had a blast at Bar Deco, and we ran into a number of our fans at Boundary Stone. It was great — and just a little surreal — to see so many people in DC wearing our swag.

You can tell we had a great time. Check out the pictures below!

We were hoping that we could find someone at the brewery to take the plunge and run the full triathlon, but we couldn’t find anyone that determined.

Escape the Cape

So, you’ve decided that you want to jump off a Cape May-Lewes ferry. Maybe you’re an adventure-seeker, maybe you’re a flotation device tester, maybe you’re just a little bit loopy on bus fumes. For whatever reason, you’ve decided that a 12-foot plunge into 65° water is in the cards for you.

We don’t judge.

However, if it’s something you’ve been wanting to do with 1,750 of your now-closest friends, followed by a five-mile run along the North Cape May beaches, then a ride on your trustiest bike for 23 miles, you should probably do so as part of one of the best triathlons in the nation: Escape the Cape.

Because, if you’re a competitor, you get to attend a killer after-party and sample one of the most refreshing beers you’re likely to find: Escape the Cape.

“I left fish for beer,” he jokes, “so I can’t really complain.”

Welcome Matt

All of the new hires around here haven’t been strictly limited to production and retail — we’ve needed to add another person in our lab, as well. With production going on 24 hours a day, we can’t work poor Lauren to death.

So, we’ve promoted her to Lab Supervisor and hired her an extra set of hands.

Welcome Matt Allen!

“We have the best staff,” Chris says. “Everyone’s very personable and friendly -- they really make you feel at home as soon as you walk in.”

Spotlight On… Old Glory Kitchen + Spirits!

“What if we turned the American flag into a restaurant?”

We’re pretty sure that’s not a question anyone’s ever asked themselves, but at Old Glory Kitchen + Spirits in Keyport, Monmouth County, you might think that was their starting point.

With their brick oven pizzas, killer beer selection, and friendly staff, it’s an establishment that would make America proud.

“The approach to the recipe formulation was definitely experimental,” says Production Manager Brian Hink.

A Brew with L’Attitude

An Experimental IPA.

It sounds like our brewers have been squirreled in some dank basement somewhere, beards imbued with electrical currents, swirling beakers of colored liquids while cackling with glee.

And while that may be true — we really can’t account for their whereabouts on the weekends — we’re not going overboard with this brew. It’s still malt, hops, yeast, and water.

It’s our second collaboration with the good folks over at DC Brau — L’Attitude.
