It’s been a big few days, shout-out wise. Here’s all of the recent CMBC-related sound bites you need to read:
1. New Jersey Monthly has called us out on their list of “36 Can’t-Miss Summer Food Festivals” because we’ll be pouring at The Craft Beer and Crab Festival on August 8 at Cape May’s historic Emlen Physick Estate. Says writer Lauren Bowers: “There will be plenty of crabby creations and other summer sustenance including pulled pork, hot dogs and hamburgers.” Also on tap: a Victorian circus.
2. Thrillist.com has included our home-base on their list of “The 14 Best Small Beach Towns in America.” Says author Matt Meltzer: “Nowhere in the country did the plague that is reality television hit harder than on the Jersey Shore. What was once a collection of quaint beach towns is now thought of worldwide as a Mecca for GTL and fist pumping. Fortunately, those who’ve been there know about places like Cape May, where visitors enjoy calm ocean breezes, historic Victorian homes, and the comforting knowledge that they are as far away geographically from New York City as any point in New Jersey.”
3. On May 15, Joe Sixpack of Philly.com said about CMBC: “There’s just a very pleasant vibe at this out-of-the-way brewery plunked down in the middle of Cape May Airport. Bring a growler, take a tour, then suck down the Bog, a low-alcohol cranberry wheat shandy, or hunker down with a high-alcohol Coastal Evacuation Double IPA.” You heard the man.
4. This morning, Atlantic City Weekly ran a story called “5 Things to Know About Where to Party Memorial Day Weekend,” and our firkin event this Friday at the Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill in Caesar’s casino made the cut. In case you missed our story about Gordon Ramsay himself tapping some CMBC beer and showering it with praise, catch up here.
5. Also today, craftbeer.com featured our cranberry wheat beer, The Bog, in a list of cool summer seasonals from The Northeast. Boom.
6. Speaking of sexy writeups about summer beer, The Bog also made an appearance on Yahoo Food today. Says writer Jeff O’Heir: “Now is the time for crisp, quenching, light beers brewed specifically for the beach, ballgames, and barbecues.” Can we get an amen?
