”I love these new IPA releases because they usually signal a change in season, and boy am I ready for spring! I can't wait to welcome some warmer weather with this beer.”

Make Fast

When we come out with a new beer, we could simply brew it up and rush it to production, cutting corners left and right, in pursuit of the Almighty Dollar, but that’s not how we do things at Cape May Brew Co.

Because, much like Meat Loaf, we would do anything for beer, but we won’t do that. 

We take our time, trialing recipes, putting brews through our R.A.D. program, ensuring that each and every aspect of our beers are perfect before they come anywhere near the chance to touch your lips.

So, when you see a beer with a name like Make Fast — the next release in our rotating IPA series, featuring a blend of Sabro and Cashmere hops, brilliant with aromas of sweet fruits, and tasting like you’re drinking freshly-pressed pineapple juice from a recently-harvested coconut –, your best assumption is that the name refers to something that fits our brand — nautical and intensely Cape May.

“The people here are great. They welcomed me in with open arms. That’s what I like about it: it seems like a family environment. I feel like I have a second family. It’s great.”

Welcome Jake!

One of the good things about starting as a packaging technician is that, while there are a lot of skills that are particularly germane to the job, there are a lot of transferable skills that someone may have picked up along the way. 

“Jake is a good guy that was excited to come work for us,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves. “His employment background has a lot of parallels to a production brewery, so hiring him was an easy call.”

Welcome Jake Craley!

April Fools!

Fooled Again!

With all that’s been going on, who among us couldn’t use a little more relaxation in our lives?

A nice, relaxing facial including The Bog? A Sea Chest foot bath? A Devil’s Reach massage? A Tan Limes lager mask? Sounds great to us!

That’s probably why this year’s April Fools joke went over so well: judging from the comments, this is an idea that a lot of people could get behind. Maybe a beer spa can be Ryan’s next big venture!

“It gets more beer into the hands of our customers.”

Cellar Four

Over the past several months, we’ve been undertaking a relatively large expansion to our brewing facility. We had a massive cooler at production that, since we’ve opened Cape Beverage in Egg Harbor Township, we no longer really need.

So, it only makes sense to tear it down and make more space for brewing! And, over the past several months, we’ve been doing exactly that: repurposing that large, empty room as “Cellar 4”.

We caught up with Vice President of Brewing Operations Brandon Greenwood and Brewery Operations Manager James Fox to get the low-down on this upgrade.

“I wish I would have had this beer last Saturday when my husband and I moved a shitload of soil for our garden beds.”

Boat Ramp Champ

We are so excited to release Boat Ramp Champ this weekend!

The beer is all brewed and canned and tasting delicious, and Aaron and Lauren Stasiak from The Qualified Captain are on their way to the Tasting Room at this very moment!

(Okay, at the moment we were writing. By the time you’re reading this, they’re here. Regardless, be sure to stop by and see them at the release event today!)

So, now that all of the Is are dotted and the Ts are crossed, there’s only one thing left to do: drink up! 

We caught up with Production Planning and Special Projects Manager Brian Hink and Lab Manager Lauren Appleman to find out what makes Boat Ramp Champ a helluva good Helles lager for spring.

“This is The Qualified Captain’s first major collaboration, and I don’t think we could have done it with a better company. Cape May Brewing Company is family-oriented and has a strong sense of community: exactly the type of people we could trust and build a relationship with.”

The Qualified Captain

Our collaboration with Instagram influencer and clothing company The Qualified Captain comes out next week, and we couldn’t be more excited.

A Helles lager called Boat Ramp Champ, it’s the ideal brew to crack open after a day on the open sea. Crisp, clean, refreshing, and light, Boat Ramp Champ is the perfect beverage to complement your fresh catch.

We’ve got a great day planned for the release of Boat Ramp Champ on Friday, April 2nd. We’ll be re-opening the Brewtanical Garden at 1pm that day, as well, and Animal House will be rocking the Brewtanical Garden from 2:30-6pm on Friday. 

And Aaron and Lauren Stasiak of The Qualified Captain will be in town to join in the fun! We caught up with them this week to get more information about The Qualified Captain.

"There’s an atmosphere here -- you can put as many words as you want to describe it out in the air, and it just doesn’t do it justice until you actually step through the door and are welcomed as part of the team.”

Welcome Brock

It’s a well-known fact that the Packaging team is where future brewers are born: it’s the doorway to greater things. So, when you find someone with packaging experience who loves what we do, snatching him up means an investment in our future.

“Brock came to us with some experience from the industry,” says Packaging Director Mark Graves. “He has a passion for brewing, a good attitude, and a love for Cape May Brewing Company. That combination is hard to pass up.”

Welcome Brock Harton!

“It's a fun beer that really starts to put you in the mindset of spring- and summertime."

What a Weekend!

It’s going to be a great weekend at Cape May Brewing Company!

We’re all totally stoked that the governor has raised capacity to 50%, and not a moment too soon. Since it’s still pretty chilly in the Beer Garden, this is excellent news for all of our fans!

And, we’re thrilled that it’s just in time to welcome back one of our favorite brews, Cococabana!

Brewed with an abundant amount of Sultana and Cashmere hops, Cococabana is a pale ale perfect for pairing with the oncoming spring weather. House-toasted coconut lends a gentle and complementary silky-smooth mouthfeel, with an enticing aroma showcasing these brilliant hops. 

You won’t want to miss this!

“A Boat Ramp Champ is a person who unsuccessfully tries to back their boat into the water or pull their boat from the water. An audience is always there to cheer the Boat Ramp Champ on, even when everything seems to be going wrong.”

Boat Ramp Champ

It’s the safest bet in the world to believe that we’ve got some boatsmen among our fans. We see the sailors come through the Tasting Room, and our branding rings true for those who love the sea.

And, with the high concentration of boaters amongst us, it’s probably an even safer bet that one or two of you have probably done something incredibly stupid on the water. Maybe you ran aground? Confused drive and reverse as you’re trying to get the boat in the water?

Well… then you’re a Boat Ramp Champ. And we’re collaborating with Instagram influencer and clothing brand The Qualified Captain to brew a Helles lager especially for you.
