“It's tasty, and definitely something I'll be enjoying on these hot, humid days.”

Cutback

Way, way back, what feels like many centuries ago, not long before COVID began, we had plans for a second partnership with the Surfrider Foundation, an activist network dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches. 

We partnered with them last year to bring about Twin Fin, a kettle-soured, session, New England IPA, right around Earth Day. We had plans to repeat the partnership this year, and… well… you probably can surmise what happened.

We called it Cutback — a crisp, refreshing, classic American Pale Ale, blending old-school malts with new-school hopping techniques. Since the partnership with Surfrider lends itself to referencing surfing terms, we wanted to honor their mission with an appropriate name. In surfing, a “cutback” is when a surfer changes direction, using his or her rails to go back toward the breaking point of the wave. It positions the surfer back to the “power source”: the steepest, most enjoyable part of the wave.

Everything was ready to go for an awesome Tasting Room-only release: the ingredients were in-house, the partnership was coming together, and, most importantly, the label was approved by the TTB.

Then… everything got put on hold. And, in the intervening months, the more common definition of the word “cutback” began being applied everywhere, including things to which it had never been applied before. 

At this point, you’re probably ready for a good cutback, and, since we had an approved name and label and a great beer to go with it, we’ve got a great Cutback for you.

A Statement on Racial Injustice

At Cape May Brewing Company, we’ve always held the belief that beer brings people together, and, as we watch the world around us erupt in protests, we feel that this message needs to be heard now more than ever.

So, we’d like to take a moment to let our fans know where we stand.

Coming soon on June 21st, it’s never too soon to begin thinking about what to get dad for his day. We’ve got a few great suggestions below!

Fun With Lab Equipment!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Lab Manager Lauren Appleman has the best toys in the brewery, and she recently added two new ones — the Anton Paar DMA 4500 with Alcolyzer and the Anton Paar CBox — to her arsenal of sciency weapons.

We got together with her over Google Meet this week to talk about them.

“You’re kinda forcing me right now to think about the science of all this stuff,” she says, “and in the regular day-to-day, I’m like, ‘I don’t know how it works. It just does.’”

She’s being a little self-deprecating — she definitely knows how it works, she simply never has to think about it.

So, what do they do? Basically, they make better beer.

We hope to see you soon and hope that you and your loved ones have remained safe and healthy throughout this crisis.

What to Expect When We Reopen

It appears that the end is in sight, friends.

“This is definitely a pinky-out kind of beer that is meant for those long days hanging around the pool.”

Strawberry Sunset

As you drive to the brewery, entering Lower Township, you may notice a sign tucked to the right side of the road. It’s an easy sign to miss — it seems to have been placed by a thoughtful neighbor rather than some governmental entity –, but it proclaims Lower Township to have the best sunsets in New Jersey.

Y’all… that sign ain’t lyin’.

If you’ve never had the chance to situate yourself on the bay side of Cape May County toward the end of the day, you’re missing out on one of the finest experiences of your life.

Combine it with a delicious strawberry lemonade shandy, fortuitously bearing the name Strawberry Sunset, and you’ve got an experience to remember.

Books and Brews

The weather is getting warmer and we seem to be nearing the end of this lockdown — thankfully! So, whether you’re still staying at home or if you’ve decided to venture out and enjoy some of our recently reopened beaches, you’re probably looking for a decent book to read.

We decided to reach out to the Brew Crew to find out which books they love and which CMBC brew they think pairs the best.

Hopefully, you’ll find a new favorite book — and a new favorite beer — as we finish up the last few weeks of quarantine!

“Since adding this filler, the speed and quality of our beer coming out have been unmatched."

Happy Birthday, Italian Stallion!

Last year, we inaugurated our new canning line: a big, shiny new line direct from Italy, we dubbed it at the time “The Italian Stallion.”

Now that Sly has a year under his belt, we refer to the line a little more formally as the “CFT”.

And, as expected, it’s been a VAST improvement over our previous line, meaning that we’ve had the capacity to can up the demand we’ve seen for our summer lineup of beers, including The Bog, Tan Limes, Crushin’ It, and The Grove.

The Bog Reviews 2020

The summer season is in full swing, and the reviews for The Bog are in: it’s the beer of the summer!

Our incredible cranberry shandy blended with lemonade, The Bog is vibrant and refreshing while still packing tons of flavor. With a low ABV of 3.9%, it’s refreshing enough for the quickly increasing temperatures in the area while keeping the alcohol content low enough to drink all day long.

We checked out Untappd to see what our fans had to say about The Bog this year, and they’re definitely loving it!
