Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Milkshake IPA is Available Now!

This week’s release has a lot going on. Not only did we take our inspiration from gooey and decadent chocolate-covered strawberries, but we decided to get them right into the beer, along with turning it into a milkshake IPA, because… well… at that point… why not?

Chocolate and strawberry and lactose and maltodextrin and hops and hops: there’s a lot to talk about here.

Regardless, Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Milkshake IPAeven typing it is a workout — releases in the Tasting Room on Friday, with distribution to New Jersey and Delaware on Monday and Pennsylvania on the 22nd.

“With its bright, citrusy notes and refreshing profile, Key Lime Corrosion is an excellent springtime beer, featuring its distinctive kick of lime and intense sour flavors."

Key Lime Corrosion is set for distribution!

Some beers are born great, and others have greatness thrust upon them. For Key Lime Corrosion, both of those things are true. 

You see, Key Lime Corrosion began its journey as an already-great beer: Corrosion. Then, for an event for Philly Beer Week in 2016, we had the bright idea to add some key lime juice to Corrosion, thrusting further greatness upon it.

The key lime variant has since become a favorite of fans and staff alike, and we know better than to keep all of that goodness for ourselves, so we’re scaling it up and setting it free. Key Lime Corrosion will be available in the Tasting Room and Brewtique beginning February 12th, and will hit shelves across our area beginning February 22nd!

Get to know Danielle Brasch!

This week, we decided to check in with one of the mainstays in the Tasting Room, four-and-a-half-year beertender and Tasting Room Supervisor, Danielle Brasch.

“Danielle is a great asset to the Tasting Room,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “She has been a consistent staple on Sundays throughout the years and has a great following of regulars. As the leader for our Social Committee, she is a big cheerleader, not only for the team here in the Tasting Room but across the company. Cape May Brewing Company would not be the place it is without Danielle Brasch.”

"Tomorrow. I’m not sure what’s going to happen. I like the mystery."

Groundhog Day

Let’s face it, there are few holidays out there as gloriously silly as Groundhog Day.

There’s a guy in Edwardian dress, replete with top hat and bow tie, and, at the absolute ass-crack of dawn, he yanks a sleeping rodent out of a tree stump and… somehow… predicts the weather.

On top of that ridiculousness, this all takes place in Punxsutawney: a town that’s smaller than 3.5 square miles in size, with only about 5,000 people, in a place called Gobbler’s Knob.

Yet, the one question you’ll hear over and over on February 2nd is, “Did the groundhog see his shadow?” because if he did it means one thing and if he didn’t it means another and no one can ever remember which is which (and we have no intention of clearing it up here).

Frankly, we’re surprised that it took Bill Murray until 1993 to make fun of it.

Yet, Groundhog Day is one of the most insanely funny films ever made. It’s a ridiculous premise built on top of a ridiculous actual event: meteorologist Phil Connors is forced to repeat the same day over and over, and that day just happens to be the most ridiculous day imaginable — Groundhog Day.

So, in true Bill Murray fashion, we asked the Brew Crew which day from their life that they’d want to repeat over and over and which Cape May Brewing Company beer they’d want along for the ride.

"The people I work with are great. They’re fun, young, ready to go. They’re hard workers. I can’t really complain.”

Welcome Austin!

We’ve often linked life in the warehouse to playing Tetris with beer: you need to have outstanding organizational skills as well as foresight into what your next move will be.

“Austin is such a delightful addition to the team,” says Warehouse Manager Polly Pollock-Bell. “During our Zoom interview, Austin highlighted his years of forklift experience as well as his organizational skills, and now I feel like he down-played his organizational skills. 

“Personally, I think he could join the dynamic duo Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin from The Home Edit or he could be the next Marie Kondo. I can see it already: Tidying Up with Austin Cornia. It would be a Netflix hit! Episode one: Austin Organizes 125 Pallets of Aluminium Cans by Brand and Size.

“He is fantastic at reworking a space to work functionally while looking ten times neater. He’s such an asset to production. We are constantly growing and always finding ourselves running out of floor space, but Austin has great vision and foresight and somehow makes space available.

“I love working with him. 10/10. Five Star Review.”

Welcome Austin Cornia!

Beer Can Appreciation Day!

Beer Can Appreciation Day is this Sunday, January 24th, commemorating the first time beer was available in cans. 

On a cold day in 1935, the Krueger Brewing Company canned up over 80 cases of Krueger’s Finest Beer and Krueger’s Cream Ale and served them up to beer drinkers in Richmond, Virginia, and they were a hit! According to records, 91% of the very first canned beer drinkers approved of the new aluminum vessel, and Krueger ended up making it its preferred container.

And thank goodness! Cans are lighter than bottles, making them easier to produce and transport, they’re more easily recycled, taking less energy to do so. And, let’s face it: it’s kinda hard to drink beer without a can — you’d have to cup your hands together or hold your head under a tap or something.

But, most importantly, our cans are a blank canvas for some incredibly awesome designs. The Tan Limes lime? The mermaid on The Bog? How about that awesome octopus on our Devil’s Reach cans?

On this most august of days, we need to send a big shout-out to our design team, Canales & Co. of Austin, TX. These folks are the ones tasked with creating our awesome designs, and, at Cape May Brewing Company, we know that much of our success is due to their talents.

So, to celebrate, we hit up the Brew Crew to find out which of our can designs are their favorites.

“If we had dropped the ABV a smidge this would be an all-day drinking beer, but I could still put down a few without getting tired of it or blowing out my palate.”
