Ways to Celebrate Mom This Weekend
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, so make sure you carve out some time to make it special for the mom in your life! We have a few suggestions to help you out with any last minute planning, and include some of the places where you can find our brews at our friends in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware!
Treat mom to a movie rental or offer a snack hook-up while she catches up on TV or a favorite book.
If it ends up raining this Sunday, make it an inside day and treat mom to a movie or her favorite show while you take care of the food by ordering in or buying up some ingredients ahead of time to make a snack board at home. While you’re out, don’t forget the drinks! We’ve got The Grove and Grapefruit Crushin’ It out at some of your favorite liquor stores, and these new releases are sure to be a hit with mom!
Take her out for lunch or dinner at your favorite local spot.
For folks in South Jersey, there’s a number of venues you can treat mom to, including Harpoons on the Bay in Cape May. Harpoons opens this week, so it will be the first Sunday of the season! Enjoy some great food and Cape May brews while soaking in the incredible views. For others in the area, Aleathea’s offers an upscale experience for mom, and check out Lucky Bones and The Ugly Mug for more ways to celebrate in style! For an elegant dining experience up north in Princeton, take mom to The Meeting House and enjoy a Cape May IPA! In Pennsylvania, The Farm & Fisherman Tavern in Horsham is offering Mother’s Day brunch, where you can have Tan Limes on tap!
Weather permitting, get out and enjoy the day with a walk or hike!
For our friends in Delaware, there are so many gorgeous areas to hike and walk around. Trap Pond State Park offers a beautiful hike along the perimeter of the pond, flanked by gorgeous cypress trees. For another option, grab the pup and head to Holts Landing State Park to hike Seahawk Trail for a breezy hike near the beach. Keep an eye out for herons, birds of prey, and other feathered friends! For some brews afterwards, swing by Kreston’s, with locations in Middletown and Wilmington; they always have a wide variety of Cape May brews to check out!
Hit up a local event for some fun!
If you’re near Point Pleasant, NJ, reserve a time slot for the Mom-A-Rama pop-up shop experience! You can feel good while you shop, since the pop-up features over 20 mom-owned shops and all proceeds are going to The Covenant House. It’s happening this evening, May 7th from 5pm – 8pm. You can register for your ticket and time frame here. Enjoy a brew at Amendment 21 afterwards, where you can find our draft-only release of Cococabana. For Saturday plans, check out White Oak Park for the Branchburg Food Truck and Music Festival in northern New Jersey and enjoy over twenty gourmet food trucks and live music all day.
Two words: Spa day.
While Cape May Brewing Company Beer Spa + Wellness Center may not be real (yet…), there are a number of great spas that can help you treat mom to a day of pampering and relaxation. For our friends in PA, The Spa at The Hotel Hershey offers chocolate treatments (um, yes please), or get away from the bustle of Philly at The Underground Spa & Wellness in The Logan hotel. If the mom in your life has a go-to spa, grab a gift card or book an appointment for her, and make sure you have her favorite brew on hand afterwards! If you’re looking for some fun places to hit up after spa time in Philly, we recommend Chick’s for their pizza and beer, or grab some take-out at Rybrew.
Grab a brew at Cape May Brewery!
Last but not least, our Tasting Room will be giving out carnations to moms on Sunday, so why not make this one of your stops for the day? Beer and flowers are a winning combo, and we’re sure to have something on tap for everyone to enjoy. Don’t forget to stop in our Brewtique to grab some merch for mom as well. Our Flagship Coaster Set and Vintage Mermaid Throw make great choices, or you can pick out some glassware! Come grab a table in our main Tasting Room, or cruise around back to our Brewtanical Garden to enjoy your brews under the trees.
However you choose to celebrate, we hope this list gives you some great ideas for how to spend the day! If you’re sharing it with us or our brews, make sure to tag us on Instagram @capemaybrewco.
