“Cape May Brewing Company has been a great friend to the Festival throughout the years.”

Bring on Jazz Fest!


“Anyone who understands Jazz knows that you can’t understand it. It’s too complicated. That’s what’s so simple about it.”

Perhaps the single greatest Yogi Berra-ism of all time. The man had some wisdom. Like a chord that’s both major and minor, Jazz is complex and simple, both at the same time.

That’s why we like being the exclusive beer sponsor for the Exit Zero Jazz Festival April 12-14: it gives us a chance to be a part of something that’s both simple and complex, much like our beers.

Spotlight On… The Exit Zero Filling Station!

We don’t usually Spotlight a restaurant that’s only been open for a few weeks, but, then again, there’s nothing usual about the Exit Zero Filling Station. It’s not often that you’ll find a gas station that serves curry. In New Jersey. Owned by a Scotsman. Who’s primary business is publishing.

Yet, there it is, in all its clapboarded glory, spanning the block of Sunset Boulevard between 1st and Fow Ave, the Exit Zero offices overlooking the 2019 Cape-May-ian interpretation of a 50s roadside burger spot.

However, since four of their five tap lines are dedicated to Cape May brews — and owner Jack Wright has been a good friend to the brewery, otherwise — we decided to head down there last week to get the answer to that all-important question: …what…?!?

“This is a great example of how beer can be fun and positively impact the community.”

Brew for a Cause


As a brewery essentially located in the middle of the Atlantic, the ocean is of vital importance to us. Not only does it produce over half of the world’s oxygen, but it provides many of the opportunities for tourism in our area and adds $282B to the US economy.

And the scallops. Don’t forget about the scallops.

So, when Iron Hill’s Voorhees location approached us to do a collaboration brew benefiting Surfrider Foundation South Jersey — a non-profit, activist organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches — it was a no-brainer.

“We’re inextricably tied to the ocean in Cape May,” says Ryan, “and it’s up to the businesses and residents who are here year ‘round to protect it. It’s — by far — the most precious and threatened natural resource we have in our area, so, when Iron Hill came up with the idea of a collaboration to support Surfrider South Jersey, we were happy to come aboard.”

That’s why we’re getting together to brew Twin Fin, a kettle-soured, session, New England-Style IPA, overflowing with juicy hop aroma and an enticing tartness and oozing with flavors of pineapple, tart lemon, and tropical fruits.

“Their best beer yet.”

Catch the Drift is back!

Catch the Drift was our very first Tasting Room-only release, and it was a good one. People raved. With strong flavors of pineapple and passionfruit due to the liberal addition of Vic Secret hops, this brew took juicy New England IPAs to a whole new level.

However, if you missed it the first time around, you’ll get your chance to catch it this weekend! We’ll be doing another limited can release — only 50 cases — but, this time, we’re distributing it on draft! Be sure to check the Beer Finder for a retailer near you!

Read what people had to say about this killer brew when we brewed it last year.

“But I really dug the people here,” he says. “These guys were nice enough to let me come up and spend a few days in the brewery and kind of pull back the curtain to see what I was getting into. I’m super stoked.”

Welcome Brandon!

As we grow, we’ve seen the need for leadership in production. Last week, we introduced you to James, who, essentially exited the womb and started brewing, and this week, we’re proud to introduce you to Brandon Greenwood, our new Vice President of Operations, who’s been brewing as long as many of us have been alive.

“Brandon has nearly 25 years of experience with some of the biggest names in this industry,” Ryan said, “and we couldn’t be happier that he’s a perfect fit for CMBC. His extensive knowledge and know-how is coupled with his desire to preserve a company culture that he respects. He’ll be a strong leader on the production floor, and we’re grateful to have him aboard.”

Welcome Brandon!

Too many to name ONE favorite!

The Simpsons

You don’t have to love The Simpsons to work here, but it helps.

It’s surprising that the little show on a fledgling network such as Fox made it past its first few seasons. After all, George H. W. Bush once said that he wanted “to make American families a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons,” (and then the showrunners moved him and Bar across the street of Marge, Homer, and the kids). Now, the Simpsons are one of the few “nuclear families” (heh!) left on television. Their staying power truly is amazing, no doubt due to the strength of its fandom.

So, with the release of Krusty’s Partially-Gelatinated Non-Dairy Gum-Based Beverage on Saturday, we wanted to talk to the Brew Crew to find out what’s made this show the long-running juggernaut that it is.

You know that extra liquidy, sticky juice in the bottom of the paper cone cup that you drink up after chewing through the crushed ice on the Boardwalk? I think it tastes like that.

The Purp

As the days start getting longer and the weather starts getting warmer, it’s time to turn our heads from those “winter warmers” and start looking toward our refreshing, springtime beers. As such, it’s the perfect time for a nice, sweet shandy.

Be sure to catch The Purp.

"You guys are already pioneering in our town and embody the best of local passion, performance, and class; all of which we admire and wish to emulate. Cape May Cares could not imagine having our inaugural fundraiser at any other establishment."

Cape May Cares

It’s easy to miss when you’re down the shore, but Cape May County is ranked one of the more economically depressed areas of New Jersey. The median income is one of the lowest in the state, and the seasonal unemployment rate is by far the highest. We have a large number of people in between the Atlantic and the Delaware who are in need of assistance.

That’s why, when an organization like Cape May Cares steps up to Be a Good Neighbor, we’re there to lend a hand with a Pint Night in their honor on April 5th from 5-8pm.

It’s not like you’ve licked a coconut for an hour.


You know Lola. She was a showgirl with yellow feathers in her hair and a really low-cut dress. She dated the bartender Tony, and they worked together each night from eight to four.

At the Copa, they fell in love.

Then Rico comes in with his diamond. He takes some unwanted liberties with Lola, and Tony jumps across the bar. The punches flew. Chairs were smashed in two. Blood. A single gunshot.

But who shot who?

Fast-forward thirty years. Lola’s still at the Copa. Still wearing the feathers. Still in that dress. But… she’s a mess. She holds her head high but drinks herself half-blind. Tony’s gone. She’s alone at the Copa.

Don’t fall in love… unless it’s with Cococabana.

“There’s really not a bad spot in the Bourse.”

Spotlight On… TAPS Fill Station!

The Philadelphia Bourse is one of the most iconic beaux-arts buildings in Philadelphia. Situated in the heart of “America’s most historic square mile”, across from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, a block from the Betsy Ross House and Christ Church, within walking distance of Elfreth’s Alley and the Second Bank of the United States, the Bourse is US History central.

Seriously. Some of Hamilton took place, like, right here.

Originally a commodities exchange founded in 1891, the Bourse completed a massive restoration in November of 2018, reopening as an artisan food and shopping market.

Inside, there are some 27 vendors, including a Korean taco grill, Chinese dumplings, artisanal grilled cheeses, Filipino comfort food, fried chicken, Hawaiian poke, Indian street food, pasta, a bakery, a distillery, an escape room, a florist, and a chocolatier.

And, to wash it all down, history buffs, visitors, and Iowa State engineering students on spring break (yeah, we met three!) can stop by TAPS Fill Station, featuring 36 taps of beer, cider, kegged cocktails, red and white wines, and mead.
