“This was a really fun project, and I'm glad that the end result came out so unique and tasty.”

Coquito

It’s not a particularly well-known drink, but those of us who are lucky enough to have been introduced to it at some point in our lives are absolutely fanatical about it.

Maybe a friend’s abuela whipped some up a few Christmasses ago. Perhaps someone’s tito was well-known for making a batch around New Year’s. Or maybe you’re lucky enough to have been raised in a Puerto Rican family who brought this out every year over the holidays.

Either way, the combination of dark spiced rum, cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg has brought joy to countless generations of Puerto Ricans throughout the holiday season. Commonly referred to as “Puerto Rican Egg Nog”, there’s only one drink that fits this bill.

Coquito.

Ohhhh, coquito.

So creamy. So coconut-y. So spicy and so, so delicious. 

At Straight to the Pint, we firmly believe that the best way to understand and appreciate a culture is by sampling their cuisine. And at Cape May Brewing Company, we believe that the best way to honor a culture is by brewing a beer based on that cuisine.

So, this holiday season, we understand, appreciate, and honor our friends from that small Caribbean island in the only way we know how: with a beer based on their favorite holiday drink: Coquito.

“It’s definitely a beer that’s meant to be shared with close friends and family.”

Boughs of Barley 2019 with the Brew Crew

Can you feel it? Can you feel that the holidays are getting close? There’s an electricity in the air: everyone has a smile on their face and a warmth of heart that can only mean that we’re entering the holiday season.

It’s the time to get together with friends and family both near and far, no matter how time and circumstance have flung you apart. There’s nothing better for the holidays than gathering with the people you love around a warm fire, rehashing old memories and making plans for the future.

And there’s only one beer — or two! — you’ll want for just such an occasion: Boughs of Barley 2019.

In the spirit of togetherness, we sat down with a few of the guys in production, popped open a few bottles of Boughs of Barley 2019 — both the port and bourbon variants –, and recorded their reactions for posterity.

I’m thankful for… my coworkers because they keep this business what it is supposed to be: fun.

What We’re Thankful For….

It’s the time of year to sit back and reflect on the things in our lives for which we are the most thankful. Whether it’s our families and loved ones, our pets, or access to great beer from CMBC, we’ve all got a lot to be thankful for.

We polled the Brew Crew to find out what they’ll be thankful for this holiday, but one thing we’re all thankful for around here is you. We all know that it’s our unbelievable fans that keep us going, and we’re eternally grateful for your love and support.

“The Bourbon variant plays out much like you would expect... but the port plays out completely differently."

Boughs of Barley 2019

The season is drawing nigh. Temperatures are dropping, the world is decorated in greens and reds, and we’ve even seen a few snowflakes.

The holidays will be here before you know it. 

It’s almost time to break out the ice skates and to perfect your often-imitated-but-never-duplicated snowman-building technique. Polish up the skis and dust off the sled. Ice up your arm because the kid next door has been getting really good over the past few winters with his snowball aim.

And you’re going to want to keep warm while doing those things. That’s where this year’s variants of Boughs of Barley come in.

“It's definitely a unique DNEIPA in the sea of them out there these days.”

Swinging the Lamp

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, you’re going to want a beer that will stand up to the barrage of sweet and savory deliciousness that will fill your plate next week. From turkey to green bean casserole to cranberry sauce and stuffing, you’ll want a beer that will play off of all of those flavors well.

And, odds are that, once you’ve gathered around the Thanksgiving table, you may hear one or two stories being told, all with varying degrees of believability. You’ll need a beer to get you through all of that, as well.

With Swinging the Lamp, we may have overshot our mark. 

Our newest double New England IPA, Swinging the Lamp is filled with strong notes of juicy pineapple and stonefruits, backed up by a gentle hint of cedar and coconuts from our Hornindal Kveik yeast.

And with a seafaring name that refers to telling unbelievable stories — the theory is that the more the lamps slung from the deckhead begin to swing, the more the storyteller is exaggerating — you can call your family out when they start… you know… swinging the lamp.

“It's really nicely balanced. Tart, hoppy, zesty, fruity, hint of sweetness. I think it'll be a great breakfast/brunch beer.”

Grapefruit Crushin’ It

You can never have too much of a good thing. Like sunshine. And summer. And beautiful days in Cape May. If all those things could never end, we’d be ridiculously happy.

But they do end. They have to end. The universe being set up the way it is and whatnot, we don’t get much choice in the matter.

Yet, we don’t have to accept it. We can rage against the changing of the seasons, shaking our fist at the heavens and cursing the fact that it gets dark sometime around two in the afternoon.

Luckily, at CMBC, we can hold onto summer just as long as we want. So, we’ll brew up a beer that’s so ostentatiously summer, so deliciously, perfectly, turn-your-face-to-the-sunshine-y summery that you’ll think you’re back on the beach in Cape May, soaking up the rays.

And, with an ABV of 8.0%, this newest member of our Crushin’ It line is sure to warm you up. It’s Grapefruit Crushin’ It!

“Imperial Cranberry (Bog) Shandy? Sign me up!”

That Cranberry Good Good Is Back!

One of the best things about this business is that we get to do things simply because we want to.

The Bog is certainly a good beer. Some may even say that it’s their favorite beer. We definitely love it, but last year we decided to have some fun with it.

So… we kicked it up a notch. Well, from an ABV standpoint, we kicked it up four notches — okay, 4.1 –, turning our beloved cranberry shandy into an Imperial cranberry shandy. We all needed some of That Cranberry Good Good.

Find out what people are saying about it!

It wouldn’t be Black Friday without deals on merch! 

Holiday Shopping 2019

If you’ve never experienced a holiday season in Cape May, you’re missing out.

The entire town turns into a Winter Wonderland of joy and happiness: the winding streets are decorated like a Rockwell painting come to life, the sights and sounds of the season fill the air, even the clip-clop sounds of the horse-drawn carriages through town take on a special warmth throughout the holidays.

Cape May does the holidays right.

And we don’t forget that here at Cape May Brewing Company! We’ve got a great holiday season planned, and we’re kicking it off on Black Friday with the release of Boughs of Barley 2019 and some awesome deals on merch!
