Meet Lauren!

Our Events Team rocks — we really wish we got to see them more often! They’re always out and about — CMBC is essentially a second job for most of them.

Lauren Frech is no exception.

Her full-time gig is corporate fundraising for her family’s business that keeps her running everywhere from Ohio to Maryland (and everywhere in-between). She has an eleven-year-old “purebred mutt” named Lucy that she forever-homed while in North Carolina.

“She kayaks, hikes, travels, and basically does everything I do and goes everywhere I go,” Lauren tells us.

Chief Celebrations Officer Randi Friel (Lauren’s boss) says, “She’s a really hard worker, always has a smile on her face and an upbeat attitude. And if you have a question about our beer, she’ll know the answer.”

So, without further ado… meet Lauren!

I really couldn't ask for a more perfect beer.

Always Ready is Ready!

While the Coast Guard may be Always Ready, the story is a little different when it comes to brewing beer. We have tons of experience and know-how, we have years of schooling and practical experience, but we’re no longer homebrewers, brewing beer for us and a close group of friends.

We’re brewing it for you: a wide-ranging group of friends. And in order to stay ahead of the game, in order to remain innovative and original, we value your feedback.

That’s where our R.A.D. series comes in: it gives us a chance to take a step back and hear what our fans think.

So, it’s slightly ironic that the first beer to come out of this process is called “Always Ready.” Because it wasn’t.

They definitely deserve a beer. And we’re proud to give it to them.

Cape May Brewing Co. Salutes the Coast Guard with Always Ready

There are lots of reasons people come to Cape May: the beaches, the restaurants, the arts and culture, the nightlife. But 4,000 of our visitors each year make Cape May their home for eight weeks — adopting our town as their own as they endure their basic training period at the Coast Guard Training Center.

Since 1982, Cape May has been home to the Coast Guard’s only Training Center. Each and every active-duty Coast Guardsman who toils to keep our shores safe has spent time in our shore town.  

We’re the Coast Guard’s Hometown, and we wear that title proudly. It’s only fitting that, on  February 8th, Cape May Brewing Co. honors that status the best way we know how: with a beer brewed in their honor.

Hey @nightshiftbeer, we’re so confident the Eagles are going home with a W on Sunday that we want to place a little bet with you.

A Safe Bet

Don’t know if you’ve heard, but the Eagles are in the Super Bowl.


The entire area from Pottsville to Cape May has been bouncing around the room for the past few weeks, with the prospect of our beloved Birds heading to the Big Game. It’s the type of thing that only happens once in a blue moon, and, since we had one of those this past Tuesday night, it only makes sense that the Birds have a shot at the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

We thought we’d get in on the fun with a little wager.

And presents are always nice.

Bae + Beers

Some people love Valentine’s Day and start planning it sometime in the previous year. They go crazy buying chocolates and roses and frilly, pink things with lace and flowers and cupids and hearts.

Some people hate Valentine’s Day and don’t want anything to do with it. They sit at home, eating chips and yelling at the cat.

Nonetheless, both of those people love beer. So, on February 10th, we’ll celebrate both of those people with Bae + Beers!

It's intimate and personal to share a meal with people.

Meet Mary!

If you’ve ever had the lucky occasion to be greeted by Mary Braccili, you’d not soon forget. She’s friendly, she’s smart, and she knows her beer.

And… she may have tried to make you eat Brussels sprouts.

Regardless, Mary’s cheerful attitude and inquisitive nature — particularly when it comes to beer — has made her the perfect fit at CMBC. Be sure to say hello the next time you’re down!

During the design phase, Justin was constantly looking for ways to live up to Core Value #6: “Make it Better.”

New Tap handles!

As you’re likely aware, last year we went through a rather major brand redesign. Everything got a new look: from our website to our packaging, the new Cape May Brewing Co. brand is out there, ready to take the world by storm.

There was just one final piece of the puzzle that was waiting to be put into place: new tap handles.

First Firkin Fridays

FirstFirkinFirst Fridays have been popping up all over the country, revitalizing beleaguered downtowns and breathing new life into cities near and far.

They’re a great time: restaurants and bars run specials, art galleries have openings, and theaters run shows. It’s a time to see and be seen.

So, we figured, why not get in on the fun?

“Being a fan first and now working here is pretty cool.”

Welcome Amanda!

When you’re a fan of something, the ultimate dream is to make it your life. Kinda like George Costanza and the Yankees, when you finally get that dream job, you rush into your best friend’s apartment and yell, “The New! York! YANKEES!”

Just about everyone working here has had that moment, too. After visiting the brewery on multiple occasions, building up a love for our beer, seeing that we’re hiring in your field, applying, and going through multiple interviews, when you finally get the call that you’ve gotten the job, you’re beating down your friends’ doors, shouting the news at the top of your lungs.

And the best part? You never even realized that it was your dream job.

That’s definitely true of our new Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable Specialist, Amanda Beaton.

Spotlight On… American Sardine Bar


We’ve had a lot of fun over the past few months as we reach more of our fans in Philadelphia. And, with the entire city at a fever pitch this week, anticipating the Iggles’ first Super Bowl win, we figured it was as good a time as any to feature one of Point Breeze’s quirkiest spots: the American Sardine Bar at 1800 Federal Street in Philadelphia.

We caught up with Adam Garbinski, the Beer Director at American Sardine Bar, to get the lowdown on this neighborhood hangout.
