There are lots of reasons people come to Cape May: the beaches, the restaurants, the arts and culture, the nightlife. But 4,000 of our visitors each year make Cape May their home for eight weeks — adopting our town as their own as they endure their basic training period at the Coast Guard Training Center.
Since 1982, Cape May has been home to the Coast Guard’s only Training Center. Each and every active-duty Coast Guardsman who toils to keep our shores safe has spent time in our shore town.
We’re the Coast Guard’s Hometown, and we wear that title proudly. It’s only fitting that, on February 8th, Cape May Brewing Co. honors that status the best way we know how: with a beer brewed in their honor.
