Sounds like the perfect time for a sale!

Summer Sale!

Although the weather doesn’t seem to be cooperating, summer is actually right around the corner.

Seriously. It is. It’s difficult to tell, but it is.

And summer at CMBC means one thing: the arrival of Summer Catch.

This year, to kick off the season of Summer Catch, we’ve got a full weekend of fun and deals planned at our Tasting Room the weekend of April 27th.

“I’m learning more everyday,” he says. “I can’t wait to see where the road takes me.”

Welcome Sean!

Our Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm is fond of saying that he can teach anyone to work on our crew and brew beer, but a love for craft beer can’t be taught.

Every so often, though, we’re lucky to come across someone who has both: previous education and a love for beer. And Jimmy’s smart enough to snatch that person up when he’s given the chance.

And that guy happened to be in the right place at the right time: Sean McGuirl.

“It's got a great fluidity to it. It really grooves right along, so it's perfect for getting down on some smooth jazz and funk.” -- Head Brewer Brian Hink

Rhythm and Harmony

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been the exclusive beer sponsor for the Exit Zero Jazz Festival for seven years.

Jazz Fest is technically two separate festivals — one in the spring and one in the autumn. For each of those festivals, we’ve brewed a special beer — Sophisticated Lady in the spring, and King Porter Stomp in the autumn.

As far as this year’s Jazz Fest is concerned, it’s time for Sophisticated Lady to take her exit cue.

There’s a new tune making her debut in this festival: Harmonic Rhythm.

“No, we have not climbed inside,” Jimmy says.

Getting Ready for More Beer!

We really like making beer. We like making it almost as much as you like drinking it.

And you guys really like drinking it.

Since you like drinking it and we’re expanding our distribution northward and westward, we need to increase capacity. By, like, a lot.

So… more people! More hours! More tanks!

“This is a delightful beer to welcome spring. Whenever that may be.” -- Brewer Mark Graves

It’s Peachy!

Our brewers love to say that “we brew beer we want to drink.”

While that’s certainly true of our latest release, Beaches n’ Cream, sometimes we’ll brew a beer simply because the concept is too good to pass up. Sometimes someone will toss a name out there — something like “Beaches n’ Cream,” for example — and the name will carry with it a whole slew of possibilities.

Beer and Jazz

EZJF (1)Hold onto your hats, cats and kittens! It’s time again for the highlight of Cape May’s Spring kick-off: the Exit Zero Jazz Festival, and Cape May Brewing Co. has once again signed on as the exclusive beer sponsor of the festival, with a whole new brew making its debut.

Taking over Cape May for two weekends each spring and fall, the Exit Zero Jazz Festival has got it goin’ on. You can see some of the biggest names in jazz at Convention Hall, the Schmidtchen Theater at Lower Cape May Regional High School, at the Shackleton Playhouse, and at some of the coolest bars and clubs in town.

And we love being a part of it.

“Don't sweat the small stuff.”

Meet Bill!

About a year ago, we were lucky enough to have Bill Zaninelli join our team.

Bill is beer. He’s been in the business for years and it fits him well. He started in merchandising for Crown Beer Distributors in college in the mid-80s, spending twelve years working his way up to General Sales Manager. He spent seven years with Beck’s, did a stint with InBev USA, then moved into craft beer. He worked with a few Vermont breweries, opening them to the New Jersey market.

Then, we got our mitts on him. We were lucky. He was lucky. Bill is one-of-a-kind.

Meet Bill!

We strive every year to create a remarkable experience by bringing together our friends and world-class sour, wild, and funky beer from all over the country.

Gettin’ Funky in Indiana

Makin’ waves.

That’s how we roll at CMBC: we’re making waves in the craft beer world, so we’re pretty lucky that we’re in a shore town.

We’ve been doing rather well in one particular aspect of craft beer: our sour program is unparalleled. We were one of the first breweries in New Jersey to brew sour beers; we recently released our sour IPA, Corrosion; and our barrel-aged sour, The Topsail, was named the Best Beer of 2017 by BeerConnoisseur.

So, it only makes sense to take the show on the road. That’s why we’ll be at Upland Brewing’s Sour Wild Funk Fest this weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Yep. Indiana.

“It's really just a deliciously smooth beer.”

Sweet As Honey

You see it on tap in the Tasting Room every time you’re here. It’s one of our most dependable offerings: Honey Porter. Yet, if you’re here frequently, you may overlook it in your zeal to try something new.

There’s a better way. Take a moment and take a look at the menu. Really look at it. Because there’s probably one or two brews that you haven’t tried in quite awhile.

In fact, it’s uniformly agreed around the brewery that Honey Porter is our most underrated brew.

It’s time to get reacquainted with an old friend.
