Originally from Barnegat, he’s apparently just traded one lighthouse for another. A graduate of Barnegat High School, Eddie continued his education at Stockton University, finishing up with a BA in History in 2014. From there, he worked at Beach Haus Brewery in Belmar as a cellarman.
He’s been homebrewing for quite awhile, so the move from history major to brewing isn’t all that unexpected. Eddie makes a pretty mean IPA, from what he tells us.
A Denver Broncos fan (we don’t hold that against him in Iggles country), he was once able to catch a game in San Diego against the Chargers. “It was the first big city we’d ever been to, and we had no idea how to get around,” but they were able to find some of the local breweries. “It ended up being an awesome experience.”
Eddie’s rather enjoying the change to CMBC. “The quality of the beer really drew me here and the people that work here,” he tells us. “Every time I’ve been here, everyone’s been so awesome and friendly. It’s a really welcoming environment.”
He’s really digging on the vibe in Cape May, as well. “It’s a nice, clean beach town. Being from Barnegat, Seaside has a lot of young kids, but Cape May is just so much classier.”
We agree, Eddie! Cape May is definitely the best of the Jersey Shore.
The things he loves most? “A good beer and good company.” We think he’s found both at CMBC, particularly since he’s just come on in time to catch the release of his new favorite brew, City to Shore.
Welcome aboard, Eddie!
