Food Drive Fund Drive

Our food drive is still going strong, and we’ll be collecting non-perishable food items until December 18th. However, with the number of families in need in our area, we realized that there were more ways we could help.

“We wanted to get more involved,” says our Chief Celebrations Officer Randi Friel. “We didn’t want to simply cut them a check — we wanted to get our fans involved in the process.”

That’s why, on Thursday, December 14th, we’re throwing a Food Drive Fund Drive to support the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

What People Are Saying About Boughs of Barley

This year’s Holiday release of Boughs of Barley has been flying off the shelves — er, out of Hans, our growler filler!

A Belgian-style Dark Ale with dark candi syrup and orange peel, we laid this down for several months in second-use Bourbon and Cognac barrels, each imparting the flavors of the spirit the barrels previously carried.

If you haven’t had the chance to make it to the Brewtique to pick up your commemorative Holiday growler, get here soon. A growler filled with Hans should last about three weeks, so that’ll put you to the week after Christmas.

(Yes. That means that it’s two weeks till Christmas.)

Nonetheless, this is the perfect time to get that growler filled!

Last year, you asked to fill your growlers with Boughs of Barley, and we get it — you get more delectable brew in a 32-ounce growler than you got in a 750ml bottle. So, this year, we’ve got a beautiful commemorative Holiday growler for your Holiday brew. You can’t get Boughs of Barley without the growler, but you can get the growler without Boughs of Barley — fill this good-looking beast with any of the 20-some beers we have on tap and be the envy of your office Holiday party.

In the meantime, read some of the wonderful things people have had to say about this year’s Holiday offering.

“I know how important the Philly market is,” she says. “I’m just excited to be a part of that huge chunk of growth.”

Welcome Erin!

As Robin Williams said in Mrs. Doubtfire, “Help is on the way, Philly!”

Okay, we may not have gotten that quote quite right.

Nonetheless, Philly, we’re coming for you. We’ve got your back. You’re one of the most awesome, abrasive, and underrated cities on the planet, and we love you for it. You’ve been clamoring to have more CMBC, and with our new not-so-secret weapon, we’ve got you covered.

“What’s that secret weapon?” you ask.

Well, Philly. That’s our new Philly Sales Manager, Erin Gale.

“We can experiment with new ingredients or processes,” explains Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm.

These beers are R.A.D.!

rad (adj.): An abbreviation of ‘radical’ — a term made popular by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Still primarily used by people on the West Coast who find words like ‘cool’, ‘awesome’, and ‘tight’ to be tired and overused; ‘rad’ is generally considered to be a much higher praise than the aforementioned superlatives. Also used as a general expression of awe.

R.A.D. (n): Cape May Brewing Co.’s new Research And Development program, which is rad.

Signature Flights

We’ve got a full board in the Tasting Room — with twenty-some taps and a different beer (and two sodas!) on each tap, it can be a little confusing when you peruse our overflowing menu. We have IPAs and stouts and porters and lagers and wheats galore, and, particularly for the uninitiated craft beer drinker, this can be disconcerting.

That’s the last thing we want. We don’t want beer to be work. Beer is what you do after work. Except for the guys in the brewhouse because beer is their work.

“For a lot of first-time visitors, having a full board is super intimidating,” says Retail General Manager Kaitlyn Smith. “So we wanted to customize our favorite beers into specific flights and take all the hard work out of it.”

So, Kaitlyn and the folks in the Tasting Room — in consultation with some of the guys in production — have devised four Signature Flights to take the guesswork out of ordering beers. We’ve been throwing around this idea for the past few months, and the Holidays seem like the perfect time to try them out.

“Pineapples come in a golden-colored ring. We got really creative with some of these,” Randi admits.

Twelve Casks of Christmas

For the purposes of this blog, CMBC is your true love. (But you’ve always known that.) And, for Christmas — at least according to that song synonymous with rushing through the holidays — your true love gives you stuff.

A lot of stuff.

But what the hell are you supposed to do with twelve drummers? Where exactly is one supposed to find a lord in modern-day America, regardless of their leaping ability? And all those birds. Six geese a-laying is enough of a problem, but if your true love is repeating all of those gifts as the song suggests, you’re going to end up with 184 birds.

No one wants 184 birds. Instead, we’ll just get you beer.

Enter the Twelve Casks of Christmas!

“I just like driving,” he explains. “Being on the road. I don’t have to deal with bosses all day and I get some time to myself.”

Welcome, Anthony!

When you’ve got a dog named Hooch and you’ve always dreamed of making moonshine, where’s your career going to take you next?

Delivering beer for Cape May Brewing Co., of course!

Well, at least, that’s how it worked for Wildwood native Anthony Hindsley.

“Behind the curtain, it’s really about strategy,” he said. “Thinking about who we are, who we are not, and where we want to go.”

Ryan in LA

Ryan’s been out in la-la-land all week — that’s Los Angeles, if you didn’t know — to attend the Winter Brewbound Session.

Brewbound Sessions are essentially a chance for the nation’s brewers to get together and shoot the shit. It’s low-key when compared to other conferences with a couple of seminars, and less intense than your typical trade show, with only a handful of suppliers on site.

Basically, it’s a chance for people to let ideas flow as plentifully as the beer. Partnerships are made, collaborations are floated, and everyone gets the chance to pick everyone else’s brain.

Oh, to be a fly on that wall.

Ryan at Stockton

On Monday, Ryan sped up the Parkway to exit 41 — Stockton University was holding a Beverage Tourism Distinguished Guest Panel, and Ryan was excited to be a part of it.

Ryan was joined by Devon Perry of, Larry Sharrott, Jr., of Sharrott Winery, Jon Henderson of Good Time Tricycle Productions (the folks responsible for the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival, among other things), Mark Ganter of Little Water Distillery, Kenny Ward of Ship Bottom Brewery, and our good friend Vicky Clark of the Cape May County Chamber of Commerce.
