There’s so much history around Cape May it can sometimes be a little overwhelming. But… that’s how we like it. It gives us a wealth of possible names for brews.
Case in point: Tower 23.
Part of Fort Miles, the system of harbor defenses of the Delaware Bay, it was one of 15 towers stretching from North Wildwood to Bethany Beach, DE, used to aim coastal batteries at German ships and submarines.
That sounds like a great name for a soured Berliner Weisse!
CMBC’s Tower 23 is a little more approachable than its namesake. Generally considered a “gateway sour,” it’s the perfect beer to quaff if you’re not yet sold on sours, even though you’ve been hearing so much about them lately. Like a cold and fizzy glass of lemonade, Tower 23 is tart and sour, marrying a lemony-citric sharpness with little hop bitterness.
Many of the reviews we culled from Untappd say that it’s perfect for summer. And it is. So, swing down to the brewery, give one a try, and dream about a life that doesn’t so closely resemble a frozen hellscape.
