“Can’t go wrong with a good coffee stout, and Cape May does it right.”

Wakey Wakey!

Our coffee stout has had a few names over the past few years — Avalon Coffee Stout, Fresh Brewed Coffee Stout, now Wakey Wakey Coffee Stout — but, thankfully, the recipe has not changed in the slightest.

It’s the same coffee stout you’ve come to know and love, simply with a new name.

Conditioned on locally-roasted coffee from our caffeine suppliers up at Avalon Coffee, Wakey Wakey has a complex grain bill of pilsner, carafa, caramunich, roasted barley, and oats. With the soft nutty and cocoa notes of Avalon’s Latin American-leaning house blend, this brew is the perfect brew to put a little spring in your step.

Whatever the name, our fans love — like, LOVE — this beer. Check out what they have to say!

This will, in all likelihood, be the very last time anyone will have the chance to drink The Topsail....

Rhinegeist Rare Beer Fest

It’s nice when our reputation precedes us.

Rhinegeist’s Rare Beer Fest is invite-only, so, when Events Coordinator Randi Friel got wind of the festival, she shot them an email to find out more.

“Once I shot them the email,” she says, “another person at Rhinegeist got back to me immediately, saying that they’d heard of us and would love for us to come.”

So, this weekend, Sales Manager Mike Laferrera and Distribution Manager Justin Vitti are packing up some Coastal Evacuation with Brett and BeerConnoisseur’s Best Beer of 2017, The Topsail, and heading to Cincinnati!

"With fall in the air, I love sitting back with a malty Oktoberfest."

Movies and Brews

When summer sleeps and cooler air prevails, there’s nothing better than curling up under a blanket, watching a movie with a good beer.

And, toward the end of October, when everything gets spooOOooOOoooky, that movie should be as scary as humanly possible, and the beer should be Cape May.

With that in mind, we asked the Brew Crew for their favorite scary movies and which beer they’d most like to curl up with while watching them.

"I love when I get off at four,” he says, “and hopping across the street, having a beer with the guys you work with, talking with the Tasting Room folks."

Welcome Brad!

Cellarman Brad Young is no stranger to the industry. He’d been working up the street a spell at Ludlam Island for a few years before coming to Cape May.

“When I met Brad, after about 2 minutes it was obvious that he would fit in here like a glove,” says Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm. “Couple that with his previous experience working with a great brewery like Ludlam Island and it was an obvious choice to snag him up and bring him on board with us. It’s apparent that it was a good decision, too; he’s been a fantastic addition to our team here.”

Welcome Brad!

“There's always a lot going on at our Halloween Bash, and this year is no different,” Randi says.

Halloween Bash

Halloween is a favorite around the brewery. The Brew Crew goes all out when it comes to costumes, and our fans love dressing up in CMBC-themed costumes.

We’ve got a spooOOoooOOoooky bash planned for 5-9pm on the 26th. Check it out!

Things happen in Lebowski that are simply beyond the realm of possibility, yet it’s a story told so earnestly and acted so well that you end up rooting for the biggest loser of all time and his moron friends.

Why We Love Lebowski

With the release of our white cream stout Ties the Room Together, you’ve been hearing quite a bit about The Big Lebowski. And for good reason — it’s definitely one of those movies that stays with you. It celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and has remained eminently quotable since its release in 1998.

However, we get that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea… or rocks glass of white Russians, as it were. If you’ve never been able to catch the movie — even in its find-a-stranger-in-the-Alps, sanitized version on TNT — we’ll have it playing during the release party for Ties the Room Together on Friday from 5-8pm.

But… the sound will be off so that you’ll be able to hear Will Knapp play all of the Creedence known to man (and you won’t be able to hear the 260 uses of the f-word…). Fans of the film will undoubtedly show up to the party in costume as their favorite character — as The Dude, Walter, Donny, Maude, Jackie Treehorn, or one of the nihilists — and get the chance to win a CMBC and Left Hand Swag Bag. We’ll have collectible glassware and inflatable bowling, and a great time will be had.

But why? We caught up with the Brew Crew and a couple of folks from over at Left Hand to find out what they love about The Big Lebowski.

If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll love our fan favorites below. If not, swing by the party on Friday, anyway.

I like going to different areas and seeing what’s around.

Welcome Darius!

Sometimes, you simply need a change.

Such was the case with our newest driver, Darius Clark. After years in retail, he couldn’t resist the call of the open road, and wanted to become a driver.

“In his interview, I liked him immediately,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “He came highly recommended from one of our current drivers, Brandon Jones, who is turning out to be a great asset to the brewery. Darius had characteristics that spoke to our Core Values, so it wasn’t a difficult decision.”

Welcome Darius!

All in all, the collaboration was really smooth.

The big news around the brewery is our collaboration with Left Hand, our cream stout, Ties the Room Together.

Well… the wait is over! Ties the Room Together hits the Tasting Room on Friday.

Definitely a hop I'll bring in to play around with on a future batch.

Hops Selection 2018

Each year, the major hops producers in the Pacific Northwest extend an invitation to some of the more prominent breweries to select their source of hops for the next production year. It’s an honor to be asked, and those of us who venture out west get their choice of crops, while others gets the commercial blends that they end up producing.

Last week, Ryan and Head Brewer Brian Hink visited three of the largest producers of hops in the world.

“It was a really good year this year,” Ryan says. “Everything we saw this year was really nice. The Azacca was really nice this year, and the Centennial was great. All of it. It was a good week. It’s such a great experience being out there. We’re really fortunate to be invited.”

We got together with Brian for a little Q&A. While they were there, we sent along photographer Conner Allen who got some seriously killer pics. Check ‘em out!
