At Last: Cape May Hard Seltzer!

Have you ever had a day that’s been circled on your calendar months ahead of time, and, every so often, you’d flip your calendar pages ahead, simply to gaze longingly at that day in anticipation of all of the wonderful things to come?

Well, folks…


We’ve been amping up, getting ready to release Cape May Hard Seltzers into the world, and now, in the Tasting Room and Brewtique, you can find six-packs of each flavor, as well as mixed, 24-can cases of our grapefruit, mango, black cherry, and watermelon seltzers beginning Friday, February 26th, with 12-can variety packs hitting shelves throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware on Monday, March 1st!

“Sea Chest hits all the right notes.”

Sea Chest is getting Scaled Up for Distro!

Last winter, we released a Tasting Room-Only beer that ended up exceeding all expectations. A little New England IPA called Sea Chest, it quickly became a favorite of staff and visitors alike.

Brewed with Golden Promise, honey malt, flaked rye, flaked oats, and flaked wheat, Sea Chest is copiously dry-hopped with Cashmere, Motueka, and Sultana. Notes of pineapple, lime, coconut, and orange sherbet are wrapped in a blanket of juicy hops.

It was such a hit that we brought back Sea Chest for round two sometime in midsummer last year, and it’s back for round three — this time scaled up for release throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware!

"If people don’t feel comfortable coming inside the Brewtique to pick up their beer-to-go or merch, this is a great option for them to get their beer in a safe and responsible way."

Introducing… Curbside Pickup!

It’s been slightly over eleven months — almost an entire year — that we’ve been living through this pandemic, and, throughout that time, Cape May Brewing Company has made a number of improvements to how we serve our customers and visitors.

We upgraded the Beer Garden. We found new and interesting places to add tables in the Tasting Room. We added the Brewtanical Garden. We’re cleaning and handwashing and mask-wearing as if our lives depend on it — because they do.

As the pandemic has ebbed and flowed over the past eleven months, we’ve closed, re-opened, expanded, contracted, and pivoted, all as the governor and the CDC have mandated.

At this point, the Brewtanical Garden is closed for the season, the Beer Garden is open if you’re willing to brave the elements, we have sixteen tables in the Tasting Room, and we’re allowing up to ten people at a time to shop inside the Brewtique.

Yet, we’re still searching for ways to improve our customer experience safely. So, this week, we’re excited to announce a new service: Curbside Pickup!

We caught up with Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith to get the lowdown.

"It’s brilliant! It’s tart, lively, and very refreshing."

Get the lowdown on Key Lime Corrosion!

This week, we got together over Zoom with Production Planning and Specialty Brewing Manager Brian Hink to get the lowdown on Key Lime Corrosion.

For Key Lime Corrosion, we took our revered sour IPA, Corrosion, already bursting with Citra and Centennial, and we turned it up a notch with a hefty dose of key lime juice and Motueka hops. Corrosion’s bright and citrusy notes of orange and lemon are ramped up with intense lime aromas, intensifying the tangy and vibrant finish, with puckering tartness and vibrant hops hanging in the balance.

Key Lime Corrosion hits shelves throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware this coming Monday. Don’t miss it!

Beertender Appreciation Day!

World Bartender Day is February 24th, so we figured that this was the perfect time to express our appreciation for those folks behind the bar, slinging pints all day: our Beertenders.

While the typical bartender needs to know how to make every drink known to man off the top of their heads, our Beertenders have an even more herculean task: they need to know every single variety of hop, how each of them acts when in combination with every single other variety of hop, an endless list of malts, how they act with each other, how they act with the hops, how those flavors change based upon which yeast is used, how most of that information is completely upended in a sour beer, as well as every single beer ever created by Cape May Brewing Company or any other brewery on the planet so that when one of our visitors come through the door and says, “You know, I really liked this beer I had at this tiny brewery on Tierra del Fuego back in 1973. I don’t remember its name or what style it was or anything else at all about it, but do you have anything like that?” they can say, “Yes, you should try our 2020 Boughs of Barley, specifically the sherry variant, but you’re going to want to let it sit a minute and warm up a bit before you dive in because that’s going to release the flavors and aromas that most closely resemble that Tierra del Fuegian beer you had in 1973.”

And they do exactly that. Every. Single. Day.

Because they’re freakin’ rock stars.

So, to celebrate World Bartender Day, we caught up with eight current and former Beertenders to find out what they love about working at Cape May Brew Co.

"Unlike others in the field, our seltzers are made using cane sugar and all-natural, fresh fruit juices, creating a flavor profile that you’re unlikely to find elsewhere -- fresh, crisp, and ridiculously refreshing.”

Cape May Hard Seltzer Variety Pack

At long, long last, your wait is over!

Over the past year or so, we’ve been developing a variety of different seltzer flavors, and we’ve been working hard to put them together in a variety pack, just as you asked.

So, beginning March 1st, the wait will be over. You’ll be able to find our grapefruit, watermelon, mango, and black cherry seltzers in a 12-can variety pack!

If you’re pairing a beer with English Walnuts, you’ll want an English Porter -- it only makes sense.

The Whitman’s Sampler and Cape May Brews

Is there anything in the world more synonymous with Valentine’s Day than the Whitman’s Sampler?

Since 1842, the Whitman’s Chocolate Company has been churning out these boxes of delight year-round, but it seems that they become more prevalent in February.

And, while we agree with Mrs. Gump when she told us, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get,” had she simply looked at the interior of the box, she would have realized that there was a map of the chocolates therein waiting for her. 

That little map made our job easier this week, as we paired our delicious beers with the delicious chocolates in that ubiquitous little yellow box.

Key Lime Corrosion Reviews

Our long-time fan-favorite is about to hit shelves!

We took our revered sour IPA, Corrosion, already bursting with Citra and Centennial, and we turned it up a notch with a hefty dose of key lime juice and Motueka hops. Corrosion’s bright and citrusy notes of orange and lemon are ramped up with intense lime aromas, intensifying the tangy and vibrant finish, with puckering tartness and vibrant hops hanging in the balance.

Key Lime Corrosion releases today, February 12th, in the Tasting Room and on Monday, February 22nd throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware.

Get me some of That Grape Good Good

Remember that old commercial from the 80s, featuring some kids, after school, rummaging through a refrigerator looking for something to drink?

“Well, we’ve got soda… OJ… some purple stuff….”

(No? Just us? Are we dating ourselves?)

Anyway, this is that purple stuff!

We took our delectable grape shandy, The Purp, and turned it up a notch, added it to our imperial shandy line, and called it That Grape Good Good, available Friday, only in the Tasting Room!

"It’ll be much more low key most likely, not as many people together for it, but that’s okay! I can actually focus and enjoy the game more!"

The Brew Crew and the [Big Game]

The [big game] is this Sunday!

You know what that means… everything is completely different this year! (…yaaaaaayyyy….)

Well, luckily, not everything. There will still be two teams, four quarters, a halftime show, incredibly expensive commercials, and… of course… Cape May Brewing Company brews.

We caught up with the Brew Crew to find out who they’ll be cheering for on Sunday and which CMBC beer they’ll have by their side.
