“Solid offering! Good taste of melon, citrus, and papaya.”

Captain May Returns!

Last year was the first year for our Captain May IPA, and, judging from these reviews, bringing it back this year was a smart move.

Named for Captain Cornelius Jacobsen May (or Mey), he’s the man who lends his name to our fair city, county, and brewery, so it only made sense to brew a beer in his honor. With a soft body, firm yet gentle bitterness, and a beautiful aroma of melons and over-ripened mangoes, Captain May IPA is orange-hued and opaque. It might look like a glass of juice, but it’s a brew that the good Captain himself would be proud to drink.

Captain May IPA

Right now, with summer drawing to a close, down at CMBC, we’re looking forward to 2020: deciding which beers will be on the schedule when, which ones will be coming back for an encore, which beers have taken their final bow, and which ones will be making their debut on the Cape May Brewing Company stage.

We will lay our plans as best we can, but you know what they say about best-laid plans: they will surely go awry.

Beer trends happen and they happen fast

Governmental regulations happen and they can happen completely without warning.

The federal government could conceivably shut down once again.

Because of these things, we have to be able to be nimble. We need to find ways to respond and change with the market, with trends, and within guidelines.

Kinda like what we had to do with our newest release, Captain May IPA. We designed this beer as a response to trends in the marketplace and were all geared up to release it back in March. We were ridiculously excited — the liquid was planned, the artwork decided upon…

Then, our plans surely went awry.
