What People Are Saying about Mop Water

It’s back! Mop Water — the brainchild of Mop Man himself — is anticipated patiently by CMBC’s loyal fans each fall. This year, we’re getting a jump on this five-spiced ale and releasing it a little earlier! It’ll be coming at you September 1st, just in time for Labor Day.

Take a look at some of the great things people have to say about Mop Water.

“It’s a really unique pumpkin beer — although it’s not a pumpkin beer and that’s what makes it so unique. We decided to bring in all the best parts about pumpkin pie: you’ve got cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, allspice, and ginger in there. It’s all the best parts about pumpkin pie in a really rich, full-bodied, amber beer. The beer before the spice is delicious. That’s what really sets it apart. A lot of people just make a basic, boring beer, then add spice to it. We didn’t want to go that route. We made a good beer first, then complemented it with spices. It’s just a really unique fall spiced beer.” — Brian Hink, Head Brewer, CMBC

“Pours deeper amber with a light tan head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, and tree bark. Smooth and drinkable with nice carbonation. Cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, caramel, sugar cookie, and a full finish. Spices don’t overpower this beer at all! Really drinkable and balanced. Digging this shit…even if it is mop water.” — eelbasher, RateBeer

“Garden herbs and cinnamon, maybe nutmeg, but light and balanced. Nice brew.” — Tom H., Untappd

Brewer Mark Graves gives his thumbs up

“It reminds me of fall, so it’s my seasonal beer — it makes me think of Halloween and haunted hayrides. It’s one of those beers that, when you’re watching American Horror Story, you can pair it with any fun fall food, and have people over and say, ‘Hey, let’s do a flight of all things autumn.'” — Courtney Sands, Beertender, CMBC

“Pretty good stuff–the spice combination is interesting, works well with the brown malt and vanilla to create something truly unlike its name. It’s one of the more ambitious and unique NJ beers, for sure.” — ectuohy27, RateBeer

“A bit boozy, sweet with the spices lingering.” — Shawn P., Untappd

“I love the s-load of real vanilla that goes into Mop Water.” — Hank, our boss, CMBC

“Poured a muddy deep brown with an average-sized light beige head. Aroma is malty with dark toast and brown bread along with some nice spicing: mostly cinnamon with a touch of nutmeg. Flavor is the same as the aroma with some nice cinnamon and nutmeg over toast and grains. Really nicely done and not a spice bomb, just the right amount to easily detect but not overpower.” — dmac, RateBeer

“Ooooo… This is really good. Good to know.” — Jason W., Untappd

“I like Mop Water because it’s not a pumpkin beer.” — Richie Rallo, Sales Manager, CMBC

“Very nice spicy beer. Almost a fall/winter blend. Really good spice in the aroma, average pour, & nearly a pumpkin-like flavor. I’m a fan!” — jrodooo5, RateBeer

“Spices blended into a creamy ale. Loved it! Christmas to Summer, hints of vanilla and cinnamon. A+!” — Ryan B., Untappd

“The Mop Man made it!” — Maddie Macauley, Beertender, CMBC

“Murky brown pour with a large soapy off-white head. It does look like dirty mop water. Tastes surprisingly juicy. Lots of spices: Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Cardamom. Allspice. Tasted like a pumpkin beer at first but apparently that is due to a large amount of vanilla bean. Caramel pudding. Butterscotch. Watery mouthfeel, so the moderately high ABV is well hidden.” — NikkTwist, RateBeer

“Mop = swab. Bucket = cadillac. Wall = bulkhead. Recruit, take that swab outta the Water in the cadillac & bring me a beer! Swab Water!” — Woody C., Untappd (Blogger’s note: We have no idea what this means.)
