It's really big on the orange, obviously, but there's still a great hop profile there as well.

Crushin’ It

As you may surmise, we’ve got quite a few homebrewers working at CMBC — and not only in production. We’ve got both avid and beginner homebrewers in nearly every department, from the Tasting Room to Events.

That’s why, every so often, we like to have friendly, little homebrew competitions. Some of the entrants are in it to win it, and some are really just looking for feedback on their brew. Regardless of who wins and who doesn’t, these homebrew competitions are simply one more way for us to come together as a company to do something positive for our fellow employees.

“I really love the homebrew competitions,” says Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm, “mostly because it’s been a great way to get people in the company involved in designing the beers. It’s not only the Brewers who get into this industry because they’re passionate about beer, everyone from the accountants to the drivers to the beertenders are all here for a common goal: bring people awesome beer.”

In the most recent homebrewing competition, the entrants were tasked with using one of Cape May’s popular summer drinks, the Orange Crush, as a starting point. It presented a challenge that had numerous solutions: Should the orange flavor come from hops or from orange juice or from actual oranges? If they decide to use oranges, should they be fermented as well, or should they be added post-fermentation?

Ultimately, Head Brewer Brian Hink’s recipe came out on top.

“It's really nicely balanced. Tart, hoppy, zesty, fruity, hint of sweetness. I think it'll be a great breakfast/brunch beer.”

Grapefruit Crushin’ It

You can never have too much of a good thing. Like sunshine. And summer. And beautiful days in Cape May. If all those things could never end, we’d be ridiculously happy.

But they do end. They have to end. The universe being set up the way it is and whatnot, we don’t get much choice in the matter.

Yet, we don’t have to accept it. We can rage against the changing of the seasons, shaking our fist at the heavens and cursing the fact that it gets dark sometime around two in the afternoon.

Luckily, at CMBC, we can hold onto summer just as long as we want. So, we’ll brew up a beer that’s so ostentatiously summer, so deliciously, perfectly, turn-your-face-to-the-sunshine-y summery that you’ll think you’re back on the beach in Cape May, soaking up the rays.

And, with an ABV of 8.0%, this newest member of our Crushin’ It line is sure to warm you up. It’s Grapefruit Crushin’ It!

Beer for Breakfast

There are things in this world that, once you’ve graduated from college and entered the harsh, cruel world, you’re simply not supposed to do anymore.

Pull an all-nighter, for example.

Break into the astronomy observatory at three in the morning to use their printer to publish an underground magazine, for another. (Just us?)

Or have beer for breakfast.

Well, we’re here to stymie that last one. We’re here to tell you that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having beer for breakfast. After all, it’s the most important meal of the day. In fact, a beer like Crushin’ It is practically screaming to be sipped during your first meal of the day.

So, we got together with our CIA-trained Culinary Ops & Soda Guru JP Thomas to build the perfect breakfast using our beers in the recipes and pairing each dish with another delicious CMBC brew.

Or just pair them with Crushin’ It. You don’t really need to look much further, particularly for breakfast.

If you’re hosting a breakfast party, we’ve got a whole menu for you. Or, if you’ve got an end-of-summer staycation coming up, we’ve got nearly an entire week of breakfasts waiting to be devoured.

“This is the perfect brunch beer.”

Crush this can!

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Man, I really like this Orange Crush. I wish it were a beer,” you’ve come to the right place.

Last year, Crushin’ It was one of our first exclusive releases, born from an internal homebrewing contest, and, suffice it to say, it was wildly popular. The response to it was overwhelming, such that, even though the first run was limited to about a hundred cases or so, it became exceedingly obvious that we needed to get it out for distribution.

So, that’s what we did. We brewed up another batch, kegged it up, and sent it out to some very grateful customers.

This year, we’re bringing it back. A few times, in fact. We’ll be dropping Crushin’ It on you guys a few more times this summer; however, with a whole new look.
