“It's hops and fruit and fruit and hops! Such a delicious combination!”

Mango Crushin’ It

When you’ve got a good thing goin’, you keep it goin’. Such is our philosophy behind our Crushin’ It line of brews.

Last year, we brought you Grapefruit Crushin’ It. Earlier this summer, you saw Blueberry Lemon Crushin’ It. And, of course, there’s the beer that started it all, the OG orange Crushin’ It.

This week, batting cleanup, we have Mango Crushin’ It!

Refreshing and perfectly paired with being outdoors and living the good life, Mango Crushin’ It is something you’re going to want to crush again and again. With Samba, Moutere, and Azacca hops blending together to accentuate the fresh flavors of mango juice, Mango Crushin’ It is best paired with brilliant sunshine, enjoying life, and treating every day like it’s the weekend.  

Available for pre-order now, Mango Crushin’ It releases at noon on Friday!

“We're the Garden State, known as much for our blueberries as we are for our tomatoes, but at this point, we have some pretty pedestrian numbers when it comes to blueberry beers.”

We’re Still Crushin’ It

Over the two-and-a-half years we’ve been brewing Crushin’ It, one thing is certain: our fans absolutely love this beer.

And for good reason! Who would have thought that an IPA with orange juice could be so delicious and so refreshing and so completely hit the spot in every imaginable way? 

From a beer that began as the winner in one of our internal homebrewing competitions to scaling it up this month and completely selling out of it within a few weeks, we’re extraordinarily gratified that our fans have embraced this beer so thoroughly.

In fact, earlier this week, we released yet another small batch of Crushin’ It in the Brewtique, and the response was exactly what we expected: our fans went crazy for it.

While our fans love this beer, our experience with Crushin’ It this year has been a wild ride — for us, for our fans, and for a brand we have all come to know and love.

"I'm really not much of an IPA drinker, but I love Crushin' It. So, if there's anyone out there who sees 'IPA' and thinks it's not for them, I highly suggest trying Crushin' It."

Crushin’ It Staff Reviews

Crushin’ It — our delicious orange IPA — is back with a vengeance!

And, as the weather is slowly turning warmer, this beer is back none too soon. With Citra, Mosaic, and Azacca hops blending together to accentuate the fresh flavors of orange juice, Crushin’ It is dry, approachable, and perfectly balanced. 

Once our COVID-imposed quarantine is through, we’ll be loving Crushin’ It out in the sun. However, Crushin’ It is a great beer for staying inside, too.

We asked the Brew Crew what it is that they love about this beer, which quarantine activities they’re pairing with Crushin’ It, and which summer activities they’re looking forward to once we’re through this mess.

Check it out!

“It’s baaaaack!”

Crushin’ It Reviews

These days, many of us are learning that some days are better than others. However, just about any day can be made better with one thing: Crushin’ It.

Refreshing and great for the beach, Crushin’ It is soon to be your summer staple. With Citra, Mosaic, and Azacca hops blending together to accentuate the fresh flavors of orange juice, Crushin’ It is dry, approachable, and perfectly balanced. 

When we first dropped this beer as a one-time Tasting Room-only release back in the summer of 2018, the response was overwhelming: we knew we had to bring it back the following year. When we did, we couldn’t keep it on the shelves of the Brewtique. So, scaling this one up was a no-brainer.

Crushin’ It is currently available in the Brewtique for growler fills, and will be released in 12-ounce cans and will be available throughout New Jersey beginning April 8th, with Delaware to follow on on the 13th and Pennsylvania on the 14th.

Check out what our fans have to say about this extraordinary orange IPA!

“It has a perfect balance point between a cocktail, beer, IPA, fruit beer, breakfast juice -- it's got that ‘It Factor’ that keeps you wanting to go back to it again and again.”

Scaling Up Crushin’ It

With all that’s going on, at Cape May Brewing Company, we’re all about good news these days. Luckily, a good beer is always good news.

And we’ve got some great news on the horizon: Crushin’ It, our IPA with orange juice, will be scaling up for a full distribution release in early April!

We’re thoroughly excited about 2020, and we hope you are, too!

2020 Release Calendar

As we barrel into 2020, we’re looking forward to a great year. 2019 was an awesome time, and we’re planning to have an even better year in 2020.

We’re proud to publicize our production schedule for 2020. Each year, we plan for the next; however, for the first time, we’ve got a lovely graphic to keep us on track. 

You might say that Cape May Brewing Company is a seasonal brewery. We’re strong throughout the year, but things really explode in the summer: production skyrockets, visitorship in the Tasting Room is through the roof, and we’re all working our hardest to ensure that our beer is at every bar, every wedding, every barbecue, and every event throughout New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. 

Next year’s release schedule is designed to maximize upon that fact. As such, there will be some changes to what we’ve done in the past. We’re excited about some of the additions; we’ll miss some of the ones we’re retiring, but this is all being done to ensure that we’re at our best when it counts the most.

It should be noted that this is subject to change — we’re definitely going to do our best to keep to this schedule, but we are at the mercy of can suppliers and governmental agencies and little microorganisms that are really the ones who decide when we can release a certain beer.

Check out the changes below!

“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.
