“We respect Night Shift and what they’re doing.”

Brewberry

Last week, the guys from Night Shift were in Cape May, helping us put the finishing touches on Brewberry, our collaboration Imperial stout with coffee and blueberries.

Coffee. And blueberries. In an Imperial stout. Yes, you read all of that correctly.

It’s unconventional. It’s different. It’s a little weird. But it totally works.

“We’ll make you more interesting.”

Spotlight On… White Horse Wine and Spirits!

You might think your life is interesting. 

You work an interesting job. You have interesting friends. You go on interesting vacations. You have interesting hobbies. You read interesting books and listen to interesting music. 

Your life exceeds Thoreau’s quiet desperation, knocking on the door of a life worth living.

And that’s a good thing. In fact, that’s an awesome thing. Few of us get that far.

However, unless you’ve visited White Horse Wine and Spirits, you have no idea how interesting life can be.

I feel like I’m working with really smart people. Really smart people.

Welcome Katie!

As we grow, our accounting department grows with us. It’s been a challenge for us to find someone to lead it — there’s a lot to learn, and we definitely need the right person. We found that with Katie VanZandt.

“She’s a total pro,” says Ryan. “She’s got experience throughout the area, in hotels and businesses that we really respect. Her accounting experience was just what we were looking for to head our department as we grow.”

Welcome Katie!

“Sweet does work really well in stouts. It’s not always chocolate and roast all the time: getting those nice, sweet, dark fruit flavors a lot of time works really well in those beers.”

Brewing on the Night Shift

There are some really awesome things about working in this industry, but even better than the great beer are the friendships we make along the way.

It makes sense. Beer brings people together. It stands to reason that it brings together the people who make it, as well.

Throughout the years, we’ve been lucky enough to have a great relationship with the folks at Night Shift Brewing up in Everett, Massachusetts. Back in 2018, they were extraordinarily gracious when the Pats lost in the Big Game to our beloved Eagles, making good on our bet. Their co-founder Mike O’Mara was behind our bar slinging our brews, taking in stride the good-natured ribbing that Philadelphia fans are known for. In addition, they lent a hand during Extreme Beer Fest last year, getting us to Boston through their distribution arm.

It only makes sense that the two of us join forces for a collaboration. And, since Night Shift expanded into coffee roasting in the past year, it made even more sense that we brew a beer together that incorporated that burgeoning side of their business.

Brewberry, an Imperial Stout with blueberry and coffee, releases next week. Earlier this week, we welcomed Daniel Griffith and Issac Boucher to lend a hand brewing it up.

It’s an incredibly balanced beer: perfect alcohol content and a hop flavor that keeps you wanting more.

Why We Love Coastal Evacuation

If it wasn’t your first Cape May brew, it was probably your second. It’s meant for sharing with friends, enjoying on a cold night by the fire, or perhaps on a warm day on the beach.

It’s a Double IPA that’s as big and bold as hurricane season itself. It’s time to evacuate. Are you prepared?

You’re not prepared if you haven’t stocked up on Coastal Evacuation.

We caught up with the Brew Crew to find out what they love about this perennial favorite.

"...with the extension of CBMTRA, we expect to save over $100,000 next year."

CBMTRA Extended!

Our fight for full adoption of CBMTRA is still going strong, and we have seen a recent step closer to victory!

“I’m looking forward to people seeing what Reading has to offer.”

Fire & Ice Reading

Ordinarily, we only write about events that we host at Cape May Brewing Co, but there’s seriously nothing ordinary about the Reading Fire & Ice Festival. 

It’s even rarer that we use the phrase “cool as hell”, but, y’all… this is cool as hell.

We’re talking live ice carving demonstrations, fire swallowing, music, a chili cook-off, a killer party, and a craft beer festival.

And it’s kicking off Friday in the 500 block of Penn Street at 5:30pm.

Honestly, I've never met a CMBC beer I haven't liked!

Meet More Brand Ambassadors!

Sometime last year, we introduced you to our Sampling Program. We hired a bunch of Brand Ambassadors — smart, friendly folks who descend upon your local bottle shop or liquor store, set up a brightly-colored table and display, and entreat upon you to try our beers.

Yeah. It’s a good gig.

In fact, things have been going so well that we’ve had to add a few more Brand Ambassadors. We’ve opened up the Reading/Lehigh Valley, and we’ve needed a few on hand to help us pick up the slack in our existing territories.

“I am so fortunate to have been able to add these four to our slew of Brand Ambassadors recently, totaling 11 team members,” says Sales Assistant Jenna Rae Rohana, who heads the program. “They all have a serious passion for craft beer and extensive knowledge of the industry. Mary D, Michelle, Casie, and Walt are all extremely reliable and great team players, which aligns very well with our CMBC family vibes here. I have received nothing short of positive feedback on their performances at samplings from fellow CMBC sales managers, store owners, and managers, as well as happy beer drinkers. I am thrilled to have these four on my team. Keep up the good work!”

Meet your new Brand Ambassadors!

“Fruity, fruity, fruity!”

Sea Chest

It’s only mid-January, but we’re all wishing that it was quite a bit warmer. Thankfully, like most things, we’ve got a beer for that!

Enter Sea Chest: a New England IPA set apart in the sea of NEIPAs.

(Sea what we did there?)

With one sip of Sea Chest, you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to sunny days and beach weather, with your feet in the sand and the sun glinting off the Atlantic.

Man, that sounds really nice about now….

"I know 'hop bomb' gets thrown around a lot around these blogs, but I think this is the hoppiest of hop bombs, and I love the beer for it."

The Brew Crew on Snag & Drop

It’s one of our favorite beers at the brewery, chock full of nearly all of the hops you could conceivably fit in a beer.

That’s Snag & Drop, our 10% ABV Triple IPA.

Dank and resinous, with hints of pine and orange citrus in the background, this alluring Triple IPA is packed to the gills with some of our stickiest and most pungent hops. 

We hit up the Brew Crew to find out what they love about this perennial favorite.
