Skip the milk and cookies — for 2020, Santa wants a beer.
And Santa’s not picky. He’ll drink any Cape May Brewing Company brew.
So, this week, we caught up with the Brew Crew to find out what they’re stocking up on this holiday season.
Over the past year or so, we’ve been focusing on bringing together a lot of the functions of our accounting department. And, to do so, we needed to find someone with a broad background.
“A lot of what Liz will be doing day-to-day had previously been outsourced,” says CFO Frank Stempin, “but we wanted to bring all of those functions in-house, and Liz was the final piece of the puzzle. She brings extensive experience in multi-company consolidation and financial accounting, so now we’ll be fully independent in all aspects of our finances.”
Welcome Accounting Manager Liz Feyas!
Over the past few years, our Boughs of Barley has become a holiday tradition, and this year is no exception.
We took our exceptional Belgian-style quadrupel ale and laid half of it to rest in used Grand Marnier barrels and racked the other half in Portuguese sherry puncheons. The time spent in the Grand Marnier barrels yielded a well-rounded body with strong notes of orange peel and toasted marshmallows, and the Portuguese sherry variant created a beautiful brew with a well-rounded body with strong notes of chocolate and cherries. With a carefully layered grain bill and our favorite fruity Belgian yeast, we’ve created a robust brew for your holiday season.
And we’ve got the top ten reasons to deck your halls with Boughs of Barley this holiday season.
Now that the Thanksgiving holiday is behind us, we’re all dreaming of a white Christmas.
A Cape May White Christmas, that is! (See what we did there?!?)
Our stellar Belgian-style wheat ale, Cape May White is brewed with orange and lemon peels, coriander, grains of paradise, and our favorite Belgian Witbier yeast. Fruity esters up-front with an easy-drinking finish yields a traditional Belgian-Style Wheat Ale brewed in the heart of the East Coast.
So, we’ve got the top ten reasons to stock your fridge this holiday season (and a few reasons to visit Cape May before Santa heads back to the North Pole)!

At Cape May Brewing Company, we know that a knowledgeable, informed, and well-trained staff in the Tasting Room is as important to your experience as the beer itself.
That’s why our staff goes through two very important training programs: TIPS and Cicerone.
We got together this week with Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello and Tasting Room Manager Jake Hauser to find out more about these two essential programs and how they affect your experience.
We always like to say that the biggest fans make the best employees, and that’s certainly true of our newest Brewtique Associate, Kara Kowalski.
“Kara is a quick study,” says Brewtique Associate Kaitlyn Smith. “She’s super motivated and eager to jump right in. Everyone in the Brewtique knows I love to mix stuff up and move things around, and on her first day, Kara helped me repaint one of the walls. She is super friendly, a huge fan of Cape May Brewing Company, and I think she is a perfect new addition to our crew.”
Throughout the country, 2020 has seen the cancellation (or drastic reimagining) of some of our favorite events. From GABF to festivals to tap takeovers, our events calendar has dwindled to naught this year.
That’s why it’s great to see a new event make its debut in our town. The Exit Zero Festive Station will run Black Friday through Christmas Eve, and we’re glad to be involved!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: it’s time to deck the halls with Boughs of Barley!
Our annual holiday offering, this year we’ve taken our insanely delectable Belgian quad and laid it to rest in some gigantic Portuguese sherry puncheons and a few incredible Grand Marnier barrels, each lending its own character to the base beer, adding layers and layers of complexity.
Releasing in the Brewtique on Black Friday and seeing extremely limited distribution throughout New Jersey next month, you won’t want to miss these brews!
