“Choose your growlers wisely.”

Growler Exchange Program

The COVID pandemic has thrown just about everything we’ve known about the world up in the air.

There are new rules for everything, including here at Cape May Brewing Company. Six feet of separation. Masks. Hand sanitizer. And a virus that could make itself known when you least expect it.

Can this be over already?!?

A bone of contention for many of our fans has been our growler policy. In order to minimize the possible contamination of our growler filler, we’ve been mandating that all growler fills come with a new growler.

No more!

Beginning on Monday, August 31st, we’ll be exchanging old growlers for new growlers!

Visiting the Brewery

There have been a number of changes at Cape May Brewing Company, from changes due to COVID-19 to opening new spaces and creating new experiences.

We want our visitors to have all of the information they need in one place, so we’ve compiled it below. If you have any unanswered questions, please see our FAQ page.

Welcome back!

Reopening Phases

We’re thoroughly excited about opening our doors to our fans! As far as we’re concerned, Monday can’t come soon enough, and we can’t wait to welcome you back.

Last week, we gave you what we hope was a pretty detailed picture as to what to expect when we open on Monday. However, we don’t intend to keep things that way forever.  

We intend to reopen in three phases, each of which returns some aspect of your visitor experience to some semblance of normal.

We hope to see you soon and hope that you and your loved ones have remained safe and healthy throughout this crisis.

What to Expect When We Reopen

It appears that the end is in sight, friends.

We’ll be opening with limited capacity and following recommendations provided by the CDC on June 15th!

So, to get you excited about what’s to come, we’ve put together an image of what things will look like when we reopen.

Books and Brews

The weather is getting warmer and we seem to be nearing the end of this lockdown — thankfully! So, whether you’re still staying at home or if you’ve decided to venture out and enjoy some of our recently reopened beaches, you’re probably looking for a decent book to read.

We decided to reach out to the Brew Crew to find out which books they love and which CMBC brew they think pairs the best.

Hopefully, you’ll find a new favorite book — and a new favorite beer — as we finish up the last few weeks of quarantine!

If you don’t have a beer in one hand and a big grilling implement in the other, can you really call it Memorial Day?

Memorial Day at Home

Traditionally, Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of the summer season at the Jersey Shore. It’s a weekend for barbecues and parades and trips to the beach.

This year… not so much.

Memorial Day is the second holiday we’ve celebrated during quarantine, and, while Easter was difficult to handle if you’re one of those folks who love spending time with family, Memorial Day is a little more difficult if you’re one of those folks who love spending time with friends. 

So,  even if you’re only spending time with your “quaranteam” — the family and close associates that you’ve been around for the past two months –, we’ve got a few ways to make this Memorial Day special. 

And your chances at making Memorial Day memorable are increased dramatically with the addition of some CMBC brews.

Video Games with the Brew Crew

While we’re all whiling away in quarantine, looking for ways to pass the time, some of us have been firing up our gaming systems and getting some time in on our favorite games.

Not only are they a great way to keep your mind occupied when you’re sitting around with nothing to do, some of those multiplayer games out there are a great way to get together with friends when you can’t actually get together.

So, with that in mind, we wanted to know which video games have been keeping the Brew Crew occupied over the past few months.

Check them out! Hopefully, you’ll find something new to pass the time.

Movies with the Brew Crew

We’re in the home stretch, now, folks!

(If we say it enough times, that makes it true, right?)

It’s been two months since quarantine began, and, if you’re anything like us, you’ve binge-watched every television show in existence, you’ve cooked every experimental recipe you can think of, and you’ve discovered a new favorite artist and worked your way through their entire discography.

We feel you. We do.

So, this week, we polled the Brew Crew for their favorite movies because our entire lives are screens, now. We had them pair their favorite movie with their favorite Cape May Brewing Company brew.

Check ‘em out!

The Brew Crew Playlist

This week, we asked the Brew Crew to contribute to a playlist for your listening pleasure, and they didn’t disappoint!

We received suggestions as wildly varied as Frank Sinatra and Pink Floyd, from old-school Dave Matthews Band to a decidedly new-school South African artist named Bongeziwe Mabandla — the suggestions were as widely varied as the Brew Crew itself.

And only one repeated artist! The War on Drugs, suggested by both Innovation Director Brian Hink and Sales Manager Chris Verderame, who now have to run off together and be best friends forever. Or, at the very least, go see The War on Drugs together when we’re allowed to be around humans again. 

We’re hoping that moment is soon. Whether you love seeing big names in huge arenas, paying through the nose for a watered-down Big Brew or you prefer checking out local bands at the dive bar around the corner, paying reasonable prices for a Cape May brew, we can all agree that this shutdown has hit the music industry particularly hard.

Luckily, many artists are working hard, livestreaming full shows, live sets, and new music. Hopefully, you’ll find your new favorite artist among those below. Enjoy!

Cinco de Mayo, The Home Edition

Next Tuesday is Cinco de Mayo! 

Even though 2020 is dragging like a brewer showing up for a 7:30 shift on a Monday, it’s kind of amazing that we’ve made it to May. You deserve a celebration!

So, while this particular Cinco de Mayo is going to be a bit different than those in the past — you’re definitely not going to be closing your favorite bar this year — you can still honor the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 in style.

And, let’s face it: if you’re looking to celebrate a Mexican holiday, there’s no better way than with a delicious Mexican-style lager with lime and sea salt. Luckily, for your drinking pleasure, we’ve got Tan Limes — and three great ways to celebrate this Cinco de Mayo at home.
