“Philly Beer Week is one of the best weeks of the year.”

Philly Beer Week 2019

There are a few things that people should know about Philly:

  1. Rocky is a saint.
  2. Cheesesteaks are awesome.
  3. The beer is better than the water.

The last one isn’t even up for debate — the Schyukill Punch (aka, Philly tap water) is the scourge of Philadelphia, while the beer in the area is really rather good.

Actually, it’s better than “rather good.” Philly beer is awesome.

Since, down in Cape May, we root for the Phillies and the Eagles and the Flyers and the 76ers, we get to consider Cape May Brewing Company as a part of the great beer in Philadelphia, particularly since you’re able to find our beer throughout the city and the counties beyond.

That’s why, when Philly Beer Week rolls around each year, we jump in feet first. And this year’s festival running May 31st through June 9th is no exception.

“I truly appreciate that everyone at CMBC is part of the Brew Crew and that an Events Team Member can come up with a beer and see it put into production.”


One of the great things about working at CMBC is that we’ve got a number of homebrewers around this place. From the Beertenders to the brewers, odds are that, at any given time, someone currently working has something fermenting at home.

So, when we decided to begin holding internal homebrew contests last year, it was no surprise that we had entrants from numerous departments throughout the brewery.

We’ve had four of these contests — the past three winners have been two brewers and a Beertender (who’s also won numerous awards as a homebrewer).

For the contest that produced this weekend’s release, Refresh-zing — a Belgian Saison with cayenne, turmeric, ginger, and coriander — we were thrilled to see a member of the Events team come through with the win. Jenna Tesauro — Associate Director of Academic Affairs and Advising at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania by day, events rockstar by night — came through with the winning recipe this time around, and the beer blew us all away.

“Growing up as we are as a company, we wanted to take a step up in our quality. I think this is a huge, huge step in that direction.”

The Italian Stallion

Packaging Manager Mark Graves is downright giddy.

He’s not a man to whom you’d often apply such an adjective — packaging beer is serious business (said no one ever) — but when he has the biggest, shiniest new toy in the place, his giddiness is infectious.

If you had a big, shiny, new canning line, you’d be giddy, too.

“It's approachable for the Everyman beer drinker, but it has a subtle complexity that the craft beer drinker really enjoys.”

Wild Wooder is Here!

Morey’s Piers in Wildwood is celebrating 50 years of quality entertainment at the Jersey Shore, and we’re along for the ride.

Er… rides. Morey’s has over sixty rides for the young and young-at-heart, all overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean on the thrilling Wildwood boardwalk.

Now, while you trod the boards and take your chances on such rides as Cygnus X-1, Atmosfear!, Ghost Ship, The Great Nor’Easter, the Sea Serpent, or the all-new Runaway Tram, you’ll be able to sip on Cape May Brewing Company’s newest creation: Wild Wooder.

“We’ve been brainstorming ways to implement this idea for months, and I’m so happy that it’s finally come together.”

Buy a Friend a Drink

How often have you been sitting at home — forlornly, because you’re not at our Tasting Room — mindlessly scrolling through your social media platform of choice, when you see a good friend of yours check in at our Tasting Room?

“Oh!” you think. “I wish I could buy my brother’s fiancee’s cousin’s uncle’s second-grade music teacher a drink. She’s awesome! She deserves it!”

You may pick up the phone and give us a call, only to be told that, unfortunately, we can’t take a credit card over the phone.

It’s as frustrating for us as it is for you. We know what a wonderful and thoughtful gift that would be for your brother’s fiancee’s cousin’s uncle’s second-grade music teacher. She totally rocks.

Well… now you can buy her a drink!

"An ice cold Lager is the perfect grill master accessory on a hot summer’s day, grilling some burgers for the whole family."

Memorial Day and Cape May Lager

The beginning of summer is finally here! (And we can all use a three-day weekend at this point….) Most of us probably have plans for at least one barbecue this weekend, and you’re probably looking for the right beer for your barbecue.

If you haven’t heard by now, we all think that the perfect barbecue beer is Cape May Lager. Its clean and crisp profile goes with just about everything you’d want at your weekend barbecue.

We hit up the Brew Crew to see what their favorite barbecue dishes are and why they’d pair perfectly with Cape May Lager.

“This is the perfect brunch beer.”

Crush this can!

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Man, I really like this Orange Crush. I wish it were a beer,” you’ve come to the right place.

Last year, Crushin’ It was one of our first exclusive releases, born from an internal homebrewing contest, and, suffice it to say, it was wildly popular. The response to it was overwhelming, such that, even though the first run was limited to about a hundred cases or so, it became exceedingly obvious that we needed to get it out for distribution.

So, that’s what we did. We brewed up another batch, kegged it up, and sent it out to some very grateful customers.

This year, we’re bringing it back. A few times, in fact. We’ll be dropping Crushin’ It on you guys a few more times this summer; however, with a whole new look.

"I like it a lot. It’s a perfect balance: not overly sweet, but not really heavy, either.”

Spotlight On… Red Rock Tap and Grill!

In a weird way, Red Bank is a lot like Cape May. They’re missing the beaches, but their downtown is trendy as hell. Many people know it as the home of Kevin Smith — the filmmaker responsible for such classic films as Clerks., Mallrats, Dogma, Chasing Amy, etc., etc., etc. — yet, it’s so much more.

Some 300 shops, numerous art galleries, a historic theatre, trendy bars, and modern restaurants are enveloped by Victorian architecture and enough historical markers to keep any self-proclaimed history buff infotained the whole day through.

Sounds a lot like home.

However, if you’ve had a Vitamin D overload and your tan is the envy of your friends, Red Bank is the perfect destination for browsing through some voguish shops, finding the perfect outfit for a night on the town, and then not having to go far to find that perfect night on the town. And, situated on the southern bank of the Navesink River, you won’t miss Cape May’s beaches for very long.

There, about as close as one can get to the river at 14 Wharf Ave., you’ll find one of the highlights of Red Bank, Red Rock Tap and Grill.

"With us and DC Brau there, it should be a fun night."


You know how sometimes you over-schedule yourself? You’ll have brunch with friends, then a barbecue at your aunt’s, then dinner with your step-mom, and then drinks with an old friend from high school?

That’s kinda how our week in DC is shaping up.

“Anyone I’ve ever talked to loves it here. They seem to look out for their employees and take care of them.”

Welcome Jenna Rae!

We’re expanding relatively quickly around here, and, while opening new territories is awesome, we’ve recognized the fact that we need someone to help maintain the ones we have. While the sales managers out in the field are great at what they do, it’s a good idea to have someone on staff to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Enter Jenna Rae Copson.

“She’s got a great personality,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “She’s tremendously business savvy, a hard worker, and she has a proven track record of positive results in her career. It doesn’t hurt that she’s got a lot of local ties and loves Cape May Brewing Company.”

Welcome Jenna Rae!
