Why We Love the Fall

The days are turning colder, the leaves are turning browner, and the beers are turning darker. Summer of 2020 no longer is, it now was.

Autumn is here!

It’s truly a great season for visiting the Jersey Shore: your favorite destinations are still open for another few weeks, the sun is still relatively high in the sky, and the crowds have subsided to a reasonable level.

So, this week, we caught up with the Brew Crew to learn what they love about fall, and, of course, their favorite beers to pair with the cooler climes.

"It’s just a fun place to work, and I really like everyone who works in the Tasting Room. I feel pretty good about it.”

Congratulations, Jake!

One of the great things about Cape May Brewing Company is our propensity to promote from within. Particularly for some of our public-facing positions, it makes sense: there’s a lot to learn from a product perspective — we have over 400 beers on Untappd, after all.

So, when it came time to find a new Tasting Room Manager, we didn’t have to look too far to find the perfect candidate: our very own Jake Hauser.

“Jake has been an excellent beertender in the Tasting Room and more recently he has done an excellent job heading up our Private Events with Avery Deane,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “We had several great interviewees, both internal and external, and this was no easy decision. Jake has shown great leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic, stepping up to assist wherever possible. He knows our brand inside and out and has a lot of great ideas on a daily basis about what we can do to improve. He brings great customer service and a cool head when it comes to leadership and has gained the respect of the whole Cape May Brewing Company team over the years. He’s even lead our workout videos. I’m beyond excited to see what great things are brewing up for Jake’s future here.”

Without further ado, meet your new Tasting Room Manager, Jake Hauser!

Charity Through Collaboration

Friends Giving 2020

It’s that time of year again, when our thoughts at the brewery begin to turn toward Being a Good Neighbor with our annual Friends Giving collaboration.

For the past two years, we’ve teamed up with Double Nickel, Tonewood, and Urban Village to produce a potluck-style IPA called Friends Giving with the proceeds going to local charities whose missions include working toward ending food insecurity in the South Jersey and Philadelphia regions. This year, the four original breweries will be joined by Source Farmhouse Brewery in Colt’s Neck.

We’ll have more information on this beer as we get closer to the release date in the next month or two. In the meantime, folks from the four breweries — including our very own Packaging Manager Mark Graves and co-founder Chris “Hank” Henke — got together earlier this week to brew this year’s version of Friends Giving.

This year, the Great American Beer Festival is coming to a brewery near you! 

It’s been a rough year for everyone, but the Brewers Association wanted to keep the spirit of GABF alive, so they’re moving it from Denver to breweries nationwide. Each participating brewery is getting in on the fun with their own special giveaway.

So, at Cape May Brewing Company, your GABF passport will entitle you to our brand, spankin’ new Tap That Glass. 

This isn’t your everyday glass, folks….

“It's low-cal and delicious. What's not to like?”

Watermelon Hard Seltzer

While the first day of fall was earlier this week, at Cape May Brewing Company, we hold onto summer as long as we can. Kinda like Bryan Adams. Except it’s the Summer of 2020, and not the Summer of ‘69.

So, even though we’re releasing the latest in our line of canned hard seltzers firmly within the autumnal season, there’s no reason not to celebrate as if it were still summer. 

It’s our Watermelon Hard Seltzer!

A new style of refreshment, Watermelon Hard Seltzer is cold-fermented all-natural cane sugar, gluten-free, and infused with fresh watermelon juice. With a hard seltzer base, all-natural watermelon juice yields a handcrafted beverage with a rosy glow, a light and spritzy mouthfeel, and a refreshingly fresh finish. 

And it’s only available in the Brewtique, beginning Friday!

What an honor!

Governor Murphy Has a Beer

The Governor of New Jersey, Phil Murphy, was in Cape May this week for the ribbon cutting of the new Harriet Tubman Museum, and he asked if he could drop by. How could we say no to that?

The governor toured the production facility, the Tasting Room, and sat and had an Oktoberfest in the Beer Garden, while discussing business with Ryan and Mop Man.

Check it out!

"We’ve been looking for a way to be more involved with the Festival, and, with the opening of the Brewtanical Garden, this year seemed like the perfect opportunity to host a few acts in our own backyard."

Exit Zero Jazz Festival, COVID Edition

There have been some good things to come from this pandemic, believe it or not.

Early in the pandemic, we were able to pivot to online beer sales, and that’s been a total game-changer. We threw our planned schedule out the window in order to bring you more canned offerings as you were stuck at home during the lockdown. We told you about the changes to this year’s Great American Beer Festival, and we’re thrilled about them. 

Across the board, from retail to festivals, everyone’s been forced to think outside of the box, innovating out of necessity, transitioning from how-it’s-done to how-it-could-be.

And many of those changes are pretty awesome. While there’s a lot to dislike about what’s going on out in the world, there are small glimmers of hope and normalcy to be found, if you look hard enough.

One of those hope-glimmers is the Exit Zero Jazz Festival. For years, the festival has descended upon Cape May each spring and fall, bringing the best in jazz, bebop, funk, zydeco, samba, and all kinds of music, sure to get you up and dancing.

And, this year, you’ll be able to enjoy some of that great music in Cape May Brewing Company’s Brewtanical Garden!

“It's hops and fruit and fruit and hops! Such a delicious combination!”

Mango Crushin’ It

When you’ve got a good thing goin’, you keep it goin’. Such is our philosophy behind our Crushin’ It line of brews.

Last year, we brought you Grapefruit Crushin’ It. Earlier this summer, you saw Blueberry Lemon Crushin’ It. And, of course, there’s the beer that started it all, the OG orange Crushin’ It.

This week, batting cleanup, we have Mango Crushin’ It!

Refreshing and perfectly paired with being outdoors and living the good life, Mango Crushin’ It is something you’re going to want to crush again and again. With Samba, Moutere, and Azacca hops blending together to accentuate the fresh flavors of mango juice, Mango Crushin’ It is best paired with brilliant sunshine, enjoying life, and treating every day like it’s the weekend.  

Available for pre-order now, Mango Crushin’ It releases at noon on Friday!

“This is an incredibly exciting development for this year’s Great American Beer Festival.”

The Great American Beer Festival, COVID Edition

It should come as no surprise to anyone that the biggest beer festival in the country, the Great American Beer Festival, has been canceled for 2020.

Well… not canceled, per se. Significantly modified is more like it.

There’s no way that the Brewers Association would be packing 60,000 people into the Colorado Convention Center throughout the weekend, yet… it’s an important event, not only for the attendees, but for all of the participating breweries throughout the country who spend months planning for the event, brewing delicious beers and building staggering, elaborate booths.

So, this year, the Brewers Association has found a way to bring the festival out of Denver and to the masses — and you can attend without having to fly across the country!

“If I’m at a place where they treat me decent, with respect, and they help me move forward, I’ll stay there forever. I’m really grateful Cape Beverage gave me the chance.”

Welcome PJ!

Once you’ve met the woman of your dreams, picking up and moving from the Dominican Republic to Egg Harbor Township doesn’t seem like much of a daunting task. Such was the case for our newest Warehouse Associate, Pedro “PJ” Martinez.

Cape Beverage Operations Manager Justin Vitti liked that PJ brought with him over a decade of experience in a warehouse environment — and he told us so in Spanish.

“Pedro aporta más de diez años de experiencia trabajando en un almacén en República Dominicana,” he said, confusing the staff at Straight to the Pint. “Se centró en el control de inventario y en el manejo de todas las solicitudes entrantes y salientes. Aunque no es una cerveza específica, se adapta perfectamente al ajetreado tráfico de nuestro almacén.”

(Thank goodness for Google Translate.)

Cape Beverage Warehouse Manager Craig Tropp likes having PJ around, as well.

“Pedro being here is integral to getting all the trucks out on time in the morning,” he says. “He brings us music that we would have never heard before, including his own produced works.”

Welcome PJ!
