“Everyone’s super nice. Really welcoming. It’s a fun place to work.”

Welcome Andrea!

If there’s ever been anyone in the world who has needed an assistant, it’s Ryan Krill. 

The man has a lot on his plate. From travel arrangements for speaking engagements throughout the country to keeping a schedule that can go horribly awry by 9:05am to sitting in on meetings about expansions and growth and financial matters, there’s a lot that could potentially fall through the cracks.

Late last year, he bit the bullet and hired Andrea Sharp.

“Andrea is really smart, has a great sense of humor and has strong critical thinking skills,” Ryan says. “Her training and experience with finance and accounting is really helpful in keeping all the details of Cape Beverage and Cape May Brewing Company straight. Her title is Administrative Assistant but it’s so much more than that: she’s more like my right-hand woman in making shit happen.” 

Welcome Andrea!

It’s time for a good, ol’ luau at Cape May Brewing Company!

Floral Friday

It’s cold.

It’s not overwhelmingly cold, but you know it’s coming.

It’s so cold that it’s time to start thinking about stocking up on beer. The last thing you want is to get snowed in without your favorite CMBC brews.

It’s so cold that people are going to start saying “think warm thoughts,” as if that helps. You could imagine yourself on a beach in Hawaii, but you’re still going to be cold. 

Well… we’re going to make it a little bit easier to imagine yourself on that beach. It’ll still be cold outside, but you’ll have Cape May Brewing Co. beers to keep you warm at our Floral Friday event on Saturday, January 17th!

"I am a builder at heart and I look forward to getting back into something that feeds my need to design, engineer, and build."

Farewell, Hank….

Everyone’s next chapter remains to be written.

At the State of the Brewery in December, Hank reminded us of that fact, kicking things off with a short and surprising statement: he had decided to leave Cape May Brewing Company.

The announcement was met with universal surprise and quite a few tears, but also with the knowledge that Hank has been absolutely instrumental in getting us to where we are today. Without his wisdom and guidance — and, most importantly, his encyclopedic knowledge of both beer and mechanics — we might never have seen the growth we’ve achieved to this point.

However, while there’s a certain amount of sadness, at Cape May Brewing Company, we know that whatever the next chapter holds for Hank — whether it’s doing HVAC on an island in the Caribbean or a fry cook on Venus — he’ll be a tremendous success, and we wish him nothing but happiness.

Below, you can read what he had to say in his own words.

It was a very good year....

A Look Back at 2019

With each passing year, we’re reminded how lucky we are at Cape May Brewing Company and Cape Beverage.

Back in 2011, when Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man brewed up their first batch of Cape May IPA and sold it to Cabanas, do you think they had any idea that, eight short years later, they’d be owners of one of the largest breweries in New Jersey?

Probably not. In all likelihood, they never anticipated you — the overwhelming generosity of our faithful fans.

So, as we move into yet another year, we’ll take this time to look back on the previous year and all you helped us to achieve.

“I just want to kick ass.”

Meet Cape Bev’s New Operations Manager… Justin Vitti!

He’s more than magic. He’s more than a mustache and a smile.

He’s a guy with a singular past that prepared him to be the new Operations Manager of Cape Beverage, with an accrued business acumen that only a background in sales, homebrewing, bartending, and distribution could possibly create.

That’s Justin Vitti: Pearl Jam fan, walking encyclopedic compilation of Harry Potter spells, and able to shove a nail through his septum.

Straight to the Pint has never formally introduced him to our readers. He’s sort of always existed as this force at Cape May Brewing Co., doing card tricks and ensuring that our beer gets to its final destination: your stomach.

Now, on the precipice of his new job, we wanted to get it down. Get it all down. Sit back, because Justin is known to tell stories. 

And we’re starting at the very beginning.

We’re thoroughly excited about 2020, and we hope you are, too!

2020 Release Calendar

As we barrel into 2020, we’re looking forward to a great year. 2019 was an awesome time, and we’re planning to have an even better year in 2020.

We’re proud to publicize our production schedule for 2020. Each year, we plan for the next; however, for the first time, we’ve got a lovely graphic to keep us on track. 

You might say that Cape May Brewing Company is a seasonal brewery. We’re strong throughout the year, but things really explode in the summer: production skyrockets, visitorship in the Tasting Room is through the roof, and we’re all working our hardest to ensure that our beer is at every bar, every wedding, every barbecue, and every event throughout New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. 

Next year’s release schedule is designed to maximize upon that fact. As such, there will be some changes to what we’ve done in the past. We’re excited about some of the additions; we’ll miss some of the ones we’re retiring, but this is all being done to ensure that we’re at our best when it counts the most.

It should be noted that this is subject to change — we’re definitely going to do our best to keep to this schedule, but we are at the mercy of can suppliers and governmental agencies and little microorganisms that are really the ones who decide when we can release a certain beer.

Check out the changes below!

“The beer I’ve always wanted you to make, haha.”

Your 2020 New Year’s Resolution

Last week, we released our Indulgent Imperial Stout, Last Hurrah, just in time to help you ring in the new year.

However, odds are that you’re going to wake up on January 1st and realize that you had a few too many Last Hurrahs. You might regret the last one or two. Sounds like it’s time for a New Year’s Resolution.

For CMBC, our New Year’s Resolution is to brew a high-flavor, low-impact Brut Pilsner, so we’re pleased to present a 4.2%, highly-sessionable canned offering to help you achieve that new-year-new-you mindset. Moderately hopped with the finest Czech Saaz hops, New Year’s Resolution is dry, crisp, and intensely drinkable.

Available in the Tasting Room on December 26th, this is the second year we’ve made this resolution, so you can read what people had to say about last year’s version below!

“I said at the top that I don’t have much influence over this anymore, and yet, three Dr. Dog songs.”

Spotify Wrapped

The folks on the brewery floor are some serious music lovers, and, like many of you, they’ve been enamored with their Spotify end-of-year report.

It’s pretty telling. It’s interesting to see how the influences in production are reflected in our music selections.

Check it out!

We’re looking forward to 2020 being our best year yet.

State of the Brewery, December 2019

Once again, the Brew Crew gathered in the Tasting Room for our State of the Brewery address. Tired and bleary-eyed they came, damp from the unceasing rain, taking the rare chance to gather together in one room and start the new year on the same page.

And grub on some bangin’ breakfast burritos.

But, in all honesty, we wanted to know how we’d done throughout 2019 and were looking forward to news about what’s in store for 2020.

We know that you’re chomping at the bit as well. Check it out below!

"Warm and comforting, but also eaaaaasy drinking!"

Santa’s Beer

Santa’s got a rough job.

Not only does he have all of those elves to worry about — and elves can be mischievous –, but it’s his job to visit every single house on the planet. In twenty-four hours.

If anyone deserves a beer, it’s Santa.

Now, we don’t endorse sleigh-flying while imbibing, but, luckily, the reindeer are in charge. Rudolph is the one guiding the sleigh, and his eight buddies are the ones driving. Santa’s simply along for the ride, jumping out at each house to tumble down their chimney.

We’d imagine that he’d love to have a beer waiting for him, rather than the traditional milk and cookies. Santa doesn’t need more cookies. He needs a Cape May IPA.

So, this year, we hit up the Brew Crew with a question:

If you were Santa, which Cape May Brewing Company beer would you like to find waiting for you at the bottom of each chimney?

Check out their responses below!
