“That’s a total win,” Ryan says.

We’ve told you about CBMTRA before: the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act would reduce the excise tax for brewers producing under 60,000 barrels a year — that’s 98% of the industry — from $7/barrel to $3.50/barrel, cutting our tax liability in half. The BA expects that doing so would create an additional $320M that we could put back into the economy in terms of new jobs, new equipment, and better beer.

Jazz and Brews

EZJFBeer and music go hand-in-hand. Gone are the days of rushing to Tower Records on Tuesdays for the latest release from your favorite band, yet the experience of dancing along at one of their concerts — cold (and overpriced) beer in hand — is one that’s not likely to fall by the wayside anytime soon.


At Cape May Brewing Co., we’re going to do what we can to keep that experience alive. For the sixth year in a row, we’re the official beer sponsor of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival.

Food Drive

Logo_taglineWhile you’re probably still raiding your kids’ Halloween candy, before you know it, the holidays will be upon us. And at CMBC, we like to plan ahead — particularly when we’re trying to help our neighbors.

For many of us, the holidays mean family around a roaring fire, some delicious CMBC brews, and a huge meal that mom spent the better part of a week preparing. Yet, for many families in the Cape May area, the prospect of a huge meal is just a bit out of reach.

That’s where the Community FoodBank of NJ comes in.

“I’m very proud of them.” -- Fr. Peter Donohue, President of Villanova University, on Ryan and Hank

Demisemi Day at Cape May

When Villanova University is involved, great things happen. And such was the case last week when the Villanova Alumni Association hosted a private event, Demisemi Day at Cape May Brewing Company.

“I can’t really stay in one space for a prolonged amount of time,” he says. “I like to move around and be hands-on.”

Welcome Charlie!

Over the past few months, we’ve brought in quite a few new drivers. With our sales team out there opening up new markets and signing on new accounts like nobody’s business, we’ve needed a phalanx of drivers to get all that beer out there into the world.

Linwood native Charlie Kleva is one of them.

Apple Pie Reviews

Each year, on Thanksgiving Eve, the boys in the brewhouse would concoct the most-anticipated Wednesday One-Off of the year: Apple Pie. Essentially our fan-favorite Apple Bomb infused with nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and cinnamon, the single keg of this brew would kick nearly immediately, leaving latecomers clamoring for a taste.

Last year, the dictum came down from on high — or, more accurately, from Hank — that we should do a full batch of Apple Pie.

And there was joy in Cape May.

Now, there’d be thirty full barrels of apple pie goodness to sip from the Tasting Room, from late October through the crisp, fall months.

Many of you had good things to say. And those who didn’t are clearly un-American, for what could be more American than good, old Cape May Apple Pie?

We’ve compiled some of the wonderful things people have been saying on Untappd. Check them out!

Candy and Brews

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays down at the brewery: no big meals to cook, no gathering the family around a well-appointed table, no gifts to buy… just a day to dress up and ask people for candy.

What more could you possibly want out of life?

The obvious answer to that question: beer.

So, we asked some of your favorite Brew Crew members to pair a few CMBC brews with their favorite Halloween candy. Check out these pairings over the holiday and let us know what you think!

Like an autumnal version of The Bog but with the added citrus of the oranges.

Cranberry Wheat with Orange

Once upon a time, in the days before The Bog, Cape May Brewing Co. dreamed up a delicious Cranberry Wheat — tart and full of body, it was instantly loved by the scores of fans we had at the time.

Then we switched cranberry suppliers, and the resulting beer was so tart that we had to shandy it up.

And The Bog was born.

And it was good.

So good, in fact, that its Cranberry Wheat parentage fell by the wayside, all but forgotten by everyone except the most ardent of CMBC fans.

Yet, like the torch-wielding townspeople at the end of nearly every fairy tale, those ardent fans have been clamoring for its return. And, unlike the inhabitants of the castle that those torch-wielding townspeople are attempting to breach, we’ve been wanting to come out. Come out with the beer, of course.

So we have. Kinda.

Like the newly-transformed castle-dweller, we emerge from our seclusion in the west wing with new life.

So, to much fanfare (composed by Alan Menken), we bring forth Cranberry Wheat with Orange.

Seriously, there was some good music in the 90s....

SpoooOOooooOOOoooky Halloween Bash!

For many of us, Halloween is a time for costumes and candy and pumpkins and fall colors and leaping into piles of leaves and the inauguration to all of the wonderful things about fall.

For the rest of us, we start stressing about finding a costume sometime in August, wait until the last minute, cut eye holes in a trash bag, and tell people we’re the ghost of Hugh Hefner.

Whether you’re Type A or Type B, Halloween is a time for fun — and ain’t no party like a CMBC party ‘cause a CMBC party has CMBC beer.

On Friday, October 27th, beginning at 5pm, we’ll have all of your Halloween needs covered, with a 90s twist!
