An Update to CMBC’s Response to COVID-19

It’s weeks such as these when we’re glad we make alcohol. 

Things are developing rapidly with COVID-19, and we’re doing everything we can to keep on top of changes in the situation, keep our fans stocked with beer, and keep everyone safe.

So, we have good news and we have bad news.

The bad news is that the Cape May Brewing Company Tasting Room and Beer Garden will close at 8pm tonight and remain closed until further notice. All Tasting Room events through April 11th are currently canceled. 

However, there are a few pieces of good news in these trying times. Our Brewtique will open daily from noon to 7pm for your beer-to-go needs: retail kegs, cans, cases, and new-purchase growlers will be sold. Nevertheless, for the safety of everyone, we will be keeping a very strict limit on the capacity of the Brewtique at eight (8) people. 

Even better news: The Bog, our fan-favorite cranberry shandy, will be available in the Brewtique beginning tomorrow! We’re moving up the release date a few days; hopefully, this is a bright point for our fans during these trying times.

Production remains open — we’re diligently making beer for our off-premise accounts such as liquor stores and supermarkets. Please visit one of our accounts to purchase Cape May Brewing Company’s lineup of packaged beers, and visit our Beer Finder to find one near you.

As we communicated on Friday, we’ve instituted a few preventative measures to protect the Brew Crew and our visitors. Those measures will remain in force:

  • An intense hard-surface cleaning schedule in the Brewtique will be maintained. 
  • We have latex gloves available for our staff; however, they’re aware that there is no substitute for frequent handwashing and have been advised to increase the frequency of handwashing, as well. We encourage our guests to do the same.
  • To reduce hand-to-hand contact, we will not be accepting cash. Credit cards, Cape May Brewing Company gift cards, and digital payments such as Apple Pay are the only forms of payment we’ll accept.
  • We won’t be filling any outside growlers, as the possibility exists that we contaminate our growler filler; however, we’ll happily fill a new growler for you. Many of our beers are available in 6- and 4-packs in the Brewtique.

Please remember: you can tip on purchases in the Brewtique. Our Brewtique staff and Tasting Room staff are tipped employees — they will be among the hardest hit by these developments, from a financial standpoint. We ask that you take care of them as much as you can.

We understand that these are trying times. However, some short-term sacrifices are necessary to maintain our safety in the long-term. We’ll do everything we can to ensure that the short-term discomfort is as easily weathered as possible while ensuring that the safety of our visitors, fans, and staff remains the highest priority.

We thank you for your cooperation and hope that you and your family remain safe and healthy.

Cape May Brewing Company’s Response to COVID-19

If you’re anything like we are, right now, you probably could use a beer.

So, for the time being, the Cape May Brewing Company Tasting Room, Brewtique, and Beer Garden will remain open for business. However, we’ll be taking additional precautions.

While we pride ourselves on high levels of cleanliness at Cape May Brewing Company, we are taking extraordinary preventative measures to protect the Brew Crew and our visitors.

  • All employees have been encouraged to remain home should they feel unwell.

  • An intense hard-surface cleaning schedule will be maintained.

  • We have latex gloves available for our staff; however, they’re aware that there is no substitute for frequent hand washing and have been advised to increase the frequency of handwashing, as well. We encourage our guests to do the same.

  • To reduce hand-to-hand contact, we will not be accepting cash. Credit cards, Cape May Brewing Company gift cards, and digital payments such as Apple Pay are the only forms of payment we’ll accept.

  • We won’t be filling any outside growlers, as the possibility exists that we contaminate our growler filler; however, we’ll happily fill a new growler for you. Many of our beers are available in 6- and 4-packs in the Brewtique.

  • We ask that you have your valid IDs easily accessible at the door.  Our greeters will no longer be hand stamping upon arrival.

  • All beers will be served in single-use, disposable plastic cups. However, new pint glasses will remain available for purchase in the Brewtique.

  • We will be closely monitoring attendance in the Tasting Room. The State of New Jersey has recommended that all gatherings remain under 250 people, and we’ll be keeping things well under that.

  • Our self-guided tour will remain open; however, all guided tours have been canceled until further notice.

While Social Distancing is suggested — keeping away from crowds and social engagements — if you want a beer, we’ll be here for you. We feel confident that the precautions and procedures outlined above will keep you — and us — safe.

The situation with COVID-19 is developing rapidly and, as the situation changes, we will keep you informed as to any changes in our schedule. Any updates will be communicated through social media or email.

In the meantime, please stay safe, and thank you for your vigilance during this uncertain time.

"The whole day was awesome!"

International Women’s Day

This week, we have a guest blogger! Marketing Assistant Kristen Taylor steps in to cover our International Women’s Day event for Straight to the Pint.

People often think of the beer business as an industry populated by bearded men swirling stemmed glassware and tossing around words like herbaceous and piney (Hi, Innovation Director Brian Hink). But in reality, the industry is made up of women with, well, equally strong opinions on hop flavor and aroma. 

Luckily, we had the chance to celebrate these awesome women of Cape May Brewing Co. last week during our second annual International Women’s Day event in support of the Pink Boots Society — a national organization dedicated to providing opportunities and scholarships for women in the brewing industry.

Why We Love Tan Limes

Folks… TAN LIMES IS BACK!

Our ridiculously delicious, unbelievably refreshing, extraordinarily vibrant Mexican lager with sea salt and lime returns to our lineup this weekend, and we’re all thrilled about it. We loved it so much last year that we brewed it over and over, canned it up for a Tasting Room-only release, and decided to scale it up this year so that more people throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware could enjoy the lime life for themselves.

We caught up with the Brew Crew to find out what they love about this über-drinkable, intensely crushable, and delightfully zesty beer.

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sawyer’s Swap

Sometimes, things don’t turn out quite as planned. Sometimes they turn out better.

Take, for example, this week’s release of Bourbon Barrel Aged Sawyer’s Swap: this isn’t quite what we were planning when we brewed this beer, but we don’t think anyone’s going to turn their noses up to a bourbon barrel-aged barleywine.

“A big, creamy, full-bodied-yet-pale-in-color beer made way too much sense to pass up.”

Irish Potato Imperial Dessert Ale

Irish potatoes are delicious. 

We’re not talking about those hard, dirty little things that grow in the ground — we’re talking about the confectionary that’s relatively synonymous with St. Paddy’s Day.

In fact, they’re so delicious that we’ve decided to turn them into a beer!

Bounding Main on Insta!

A fan favorite returns this weekend: Bounding Main

Brewed with 5.5 pounds of hops per barrel, Bounding Main has a soft and pillowy mouthfeel, a gentle bitterness, and aromas of tropical fruits: mango, guava, citrus — all with a hint of dank in the background. Like many a stormy wind, Bounding Main will blow you away.

Not only is Bounding Main delicious, but it’s proven to be one of our most ‘grammable beers. People love this can design — particularly when coupled with a beautiful shore vista.

“Fan pics are great because it means people love our beer, artwork, and branding enough to post about it on their page or story,” says Social Media and Design Alchemist Courtney RosenbergI love when people take the time to shoot a lay-flat or staged photo or when they take our brand on the move somewhere awesome, like a paddleboarding trip or a hike. That makes my heart happy. When someone has our beer in mind, that’s the most flattering part of it.”

If you’re posting pictures on your Insta, be sure to tag us (and follow us) @capemaybrewco, and use #craftedonthecape, #capemaybrewco, and #boundingmain!

“You’ll have the luck o’ the Irish on St. Paddy’s Day Weekend! But only if you’re at Cape May O’Brew Co!”

St. Paddy’s Day Weekend

One of Cape May Brewing Company’s favorite weekends is coming up: St. Paddy’s Day!

Not only is it the weekend where we all get to be Irish, but it’s also a great weekend for beer. So, to celebrate, we’ve got two new releases and eight one-offs, sure to make everyone feel as Irish as humanly possible (without actually going to Ireland, because that can get expensive).

The fun starts at 4pm on Friday, March 13th and goes all weekend long.

“Later that day I'll make my way to the Tasting Room to enjoy a pint while we fundraise for the Pink Boots Society.”

She the People

We’ve got some awesome women at Cape May Brewing Company. They’re some of the hardest workers at the brewery, in every department of the company: including in production, in the Tasting Room and Brewtique, in Human Resources, in marketing, and our entire accounting department is 100% women.

So, for the second year in a row, the women of Cape May Brewing Company are joining forces with the Pink Boots Society — a national organization dedicated to providing opportunities and scholarships for women in the brewing industry — to brew a collaboration beer for International Women’s Day this weekend.

The women devised She the People: a fruited pilsner with the Pink Boots Society hops blend and flavored with passionfruit and mango.

In conjunction with the release of She the People, on Friday, March 6th, the Pink Boots Society will receive $1 from each pint and flight sold in the Tasting Room, as well as $1 from each $11.99+tax four-pack of 16-ounce cans of She the People. It’ll be a great time for a great beer and a great cause!

"The best country restaurant in the whole Northeast.”

Spotlight On… Prospectors Grille & Saloon!

It’s rare that we get to write a Spotlight On a country bar. The truth is that, while country music is definitely popular in South Jersey, country bars are difficult to find — and it’s even more difficult to find one with a decent selection of craft beer.

That’s where Prospectors Grille & Saloon at 3050 Rte. 38 in Mt. Laurel comes in. A longtime player when it comes to supporting the careers of up-and-coming country musicians, their consistent lineup of quality brews includes Cape May’s own Coastal Evacuation and Always Ready.

We got together with General Manager Carl Steward to find out what makes Prospectors “the best country restaurant in the whole Northeast.”
