Blueberry Lemon Crushin’ It: A Big, Bold Release This Year!

You might remember that when we released Blueberry Lemon Crushin’ It for the first time last year, our website could not handle the volume of requests for the brew. 

As in, Blueberry Lemon Crushin’ It broke the internet. (Well, at least, our little corner of it.)

The demand was so high, in fact, that we sold out of cans the first weekend we released it. We re-released another batch, but it was still limited. 

We knew right away that this was one we wanted to bring back on a larger scale for everyone to enjoy, and this week it’s back, bigger and better than ever!

Starting today in the Tasting Room, you’ll be able to stock up on this brew, try it on draft, or grab your own six-pack for the first time! As an added bonus for this year’s release, Blueberry Lemon Crushin’ It  will be available throughout liquor stores and on draft in New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware later this month.

Check out what folks had to say about this brew!

Spotlight On Wheelhouse!

Our friends right across the bay at Wheelhouse in Lewes, Delaware have been on our list to visit for some time now, and we were so thrilled to get the chance to take a midweek ferry ride over to join them for lunch.

Wheelhouse is part of the Zogg’s Raw Bar ‘n’ Grill Restaurant Group, which also operates Zogg’s and Bushels, two fellow local Delaware restaurants, each with their own beachy, southern vibe. 

Mike Dangerfield, the Director of Operations for the restaurant group, set us up with General Manager Keely Weber, who’s the GM for both Wheelhouse and Bushels. Sales Manager Scott McIntyre and Social Media & Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg joined us for the adventure. We rode the ferry over with Courtney, and Scott drove out from Philly to meet us.

We checked out a few of the dishes they have to offer, as well as what you can expect when you visit. I mean, just LOOK at these photos!

“Brett is one of those fun yeasts where you can do the same thing and it can come out differently each time.”

Crusty Barnacle Makes Its Return This Week!

Crusty Barnacle has been a staple for the last several years, and it’s a favorite of many of our Brew Crew members and regulars.

Guest Guru Mary Braccili is a fan, and Operations Manager at Cape Beverage Craig Tropp also enjoys the funk of this brew. 

The brew has grown substantially from its humble roots as a Tasting Room team brew, and we’ve covered it at length on the blog before.

This year, we caught up again with Mark Graves. When we spoke with him in 2018 about this brew, Mark was a brewer, and he’s since worked his way up to become our Packaging Manager! 

He spoke with us about why this brew is so special, and what it offers that’s distinctly different from many of our usual brews.

“It’s a more technical beer to brew and cellar and filter. It’s such a good, clean taste. It’s perfect.”

New Pilsner Alert! Meet Cin Cin

For the last couple of years, we’ve been loving our new canning line, a CFT Microbrew from Italy, which increased our efficiency and ability to pump out about 100 cans-per-minute. 

Thanks to this bad boy, we’ve been able to offer a lot more Tasting Room-exclusive releases, including our latest this week, Italian-style Pilsner Cin Cin (as in chin chin, or how you’d pronounce ‘Cheers!’ in Italian). 

Lager superfan and Brewer Brad Young jumped at the chance to spread the gospel on this brew, and why you should check it out even if you’re not normally a beer-flavored beer drinker.

“After I graduated from high school, I went to Ireland for a month. I went by myself."

Welcome Jack!

Jack comes across as a quiet, easy-going guy, and he’s incredibly well-spoken with some incredible experiences for his age so far. He’s traveled to Ireland alone for a month, and he’s been working and hustling since he was 11 years old. 

We caught up with Jack at the Tasting Room this week, who started with us a couple months ago ahead of our busy summer season.

Meet Barback Jack Sandman!

“I think that’s what a lot of people have here, an appreciation for life."

Welcome Mike!

Mike is an introspective guy who seems reserved at first, but he has an infectious positive attitude and love for life that makes him great to be around. 

(And don’t just take our word for it! Most of those who have spent some time around Mike would say the same!)

“Mike has what seems to be an endless pool of knowledge which has been super helpful as we develop the warehouse department,” Warehouse Manager Polly Pollock-Bell shares. “He understands the ‘ins and outs’ of inventorying and has already made suggestions that we’ve now implemented to make those daily inventory counts so much easier. I am so stoked to have Mike as part of our Brew Crew! He is a top notch gent with a fantastic outlook on life, which makes working with him so wonderful!” 

Meet Warehouse Associate Mike Lauff!

“It’s a hoppier, higher ABV version of Cococabana. A tropical, summery, good time.”

This Flavor is Anything But Fake: Introducing Fake Palm Tree!

Fake Palm Tree is new to the family this year, but fans of our fellow tropical IPAs will have something new to obsess over this week.

(Here’s looking at you, Follow the Gull, Make Fast, Captain May, and Swinging the Lamp!)

Fake Palm Tree also follows the route of darling draft favorite this year, Cococabana, by featuring prominent coconut notes.

There’s a lot of tough work that goes into this brew to get it just right, and this week, we sat down with Brewer Emily Siddall to get her perspective!

WE’RE BACK! And Just in Time for Memorial Day Weekend!

Memorial Day Weekend officially starts…now! (Or, if you’re reading this at 7am before you start work for the day, then there’s still a few more hours left until the celebrations begin). We have some awesome things planned for you, so make sure you swing by the Tasting Room this weekend! 

We were already planning a great party and release weekend, but we’re also happy to announce that in accordance with new state guidelines, we’ll be back to operating as usual, with bar service and vaccinated guests welcome to explore our space sans-masks. We trust our guests to make the right decision to mask up (or not) based on their status and personal preference. Now, for the fun stuff!

If you’re looking for live music, Salty Dog will be playing beach rock in the Brewtanical Garden from 3pm – 6pm today, Friday May 28th, and the Brewtanical Garden will be decked out in beach fare for the occasion! The celebration will continue all week long in the Tasting Room with the return of Bog slushies (gasp!) and two new sweet treat brews to enjoy: On the Way to Cape May No #001 Ice Cream Twist and On the Way to Cape May No #002 Watermelon Salt Water Taffy!

…You didn’t think that was all, did you? You might have noticed our Brewtique has looked a bit bare lately, and that’s because we were making way for our first round of summer fare! We caught up with Kaitlyn for the details on these new items. Read on for more information!
