Five-Bullet Fridays

If you subscribe to our weekly newsletter, The Growler, last week you got a peek into one of our internal emails when we accidentally sent it out to the entire world.

While you were certainly never meant to see it, judging from the many emails Ryan received in response, everyone thought it was pretty cool. 

So, this week, we decided to let you in on this tidbit of our company culture.

Mango Hard Seltzer

You went ga-ga for grapefruit… a little wonky for watermelon….

Our line of hard seltzers have been a hit this summer, so we’ve extended the fun — and the line — into the fall with our Mango Hard Seltzer.

So now, you can go mad for mango!

Cans of Mango Hard Seltzer release today, only in the Brewtique!

Introducing Cape May Coffee Stout

We’ve been brewing coffee stouts almost as long as we’ve been brewing beer. They’ve gone by a few names over the years, but they’ve always been roasty, smooth, and incredibly delicious.

This winter, we’ve decided to can it up and bring it to the masses! Our  Cape May Coffee Stout will be distributed beginning October 26th!

"I like that Ryan came in on our first day and said, ‘These are what my philosophies are, this is what my structure is.’ You kinda hear that and think, ‘Oh, okay,’ but you get here and you realize that he wasn’t joking. He’s created a culture here...."

Welcome Colin!

At Cape May Brewing Company, we love our Coasties — we brewed Always Ready for them, after all — and, for the most part, they love us back.

“We’d actually been waiting to interview Colin for a number of months, as he reached out to us when he was still stationed with the Coast Guard in Washington state,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “He was looking for a fun post-Coast Guard job and we had just that. When he finally made it back to Cape May last month, it was obvious that Colin had a natural fit with our team. He brings a professional but fun attitude to the job, and any task asked of Colin, I know I can trust to be handled correctly. Furthermore, I’m looking forward to all the Coastie friends coming in to visit Colin.”

Welcome Colin Smith!

Visiting the Brewery

There have been a number of changes at Cape May Brewing Company, from changes due to COVID-19 to opening new spaces and creating new experiences.

We want our visitors to have all of the information they need in one place, so we’ve compiled it below. If you have any unanswered questions, please see our FAQ page.

“It's silly drinkable despite being 10% ABV and hopped around 11 pounds-per-barrel.”

Double Dry-Hopped Snag & Drop

Double Dry-Hopped Snag & Drop is a beer many, many years in the making.

It’s one that we’ve had in the back of our heads for several years, and we were all set to release it during the summer of 2019. However, we found ourselves unable to squeeze it in. Then, it’s been on the schedule, then off the schedule, then moved around for one reason or another, usually to make room for our tried-and-true beer like Cape May IPA.

Nonetheless, Snag & Drop is one of those beers that is practically begging to be double dry-hopped. It’s a lupulin-laden beast. Dank and resinous with hints of pine and orange citrus in the background, Snag & Drop is packed to the gills with some of our stickiest and most pungent hops.

When you’ve got a beer that hits all of those notes — dank and fruity in one impossible beer — you’ll want to hit it with something on the double dry-hop that’s going to bring out all of those contrasts. Something like Citra and Mosaic.

And so, the stars have aligned: we have the time in the schedule, we have the perfect hops, and we have an off-the-chain can design.

Finally, Double Dry-Hopped Snag & Drop releases this Friday, only in the Tasting Room and Brewtique!

"With the spices from the sausage and in the sauce, you’re going to want something hoppy, but not so hoppy that it strips your palate and you can’t taste anything. That’s Cape May IPA in a nutshell."

Beer and Pizza Day

Friends….

There is an entire day devoted to drinking beer and eating pizza. An entire day. And it’s TODAY! On this glorious October 9th, you have one job: drink beer and eat pizza.

Granted, with this pandemic, for some of us, that’s all we do every day, but today, at least you have an excuse.

And, to help you get in the beer and pizza mood, we asked the Brew Crew for their favorite CMBC beer and pizza combinations.

“It’s a perk knowing people are helping out local businesses by supporting us as well as the brewery and charities!”

Hops Trot

Among other things, 2020 will go down as the year of the virtual event. 

We’ve seen virtual concerts, virtual comedy nights, virtual trivia nights, virtual DJ sessions (some from our very own DJ Denny Oh), and virtual happy hours.

Earlier this year, sometime during the Spanish-American War (also known as “April”), our good friends over at Bikes & Beers were one of the first to throw their hat into the virtual ring with their Social Distancing Ride. Aimed at keeping people active and getting outside during the crucial, initial stages of the pandemic — and raising some money in the process –, this event was an unequivocal success, setting the standard for virtual events.

Now, with a chill in the air, Bikes & Beers is hosting yet another virtual event, the Hops Trot, beginning October 15th and running through November 30th!

“Whenever I had a problem, everyone was pretty understanding and worked with me on it. That was new to me, as weird as that sounds. It’s not like this everywhere.”

Welcome Sean!

Since the pandemic began, we’ve seen our packaged beer sales far outpace what we thought they’d be, so we needed to bring on some extra hands in the packaging department. Thankfully, we didn’t have to go much further than our very own Tasting Room to find the perfect candidate.

“Sean found us during open interviews this past summer and we are sure glad he did,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “Sean was looking to get into the craft beer industry and working in the Tasting Room was a great place for him to start. He was an awesome team player during his time in the Tasting Room, and he’s done everything from Brewtique Associate to Delivery Driver. Sean embraces our culture and was always ‘Being A Pro’. While we are sad to not see Sean here at the Tasting Room every day, we’re stoked that he was able to make the transition to production where he can continue to learn more about craft beer.”

And the production team welcomed him with open arms.

“Sean is a good guy with an interest in what we are doing at production,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves. It’s easy to find someone to do the job, it is hard to find someone with a passion for the job, and Sean definitely has a passion, not only for craft beer but for Cape May Brewing Company.”

Welcome Sean Loder!

"This beer does a phenomenal job of maintaining its drinkability through a range of temperatures while offering you something new at each stop.”

R.A.D. 022 — Belgian Quad

Every brewery in creation has an IPA on their menu. Probably several. Everyone has stouts, porters, etc, etc.

But Belgian quads are relatively rare. 

And for good reason: they’re insanely complex, ridiculously intriguing, and devastatingly delicious.

So, when we decided to brew one up as the latest in our R.A.D. series, it came about as the result of some intense collaboration and development between some of the best minds in our production department.

Luckily, we were able to get them all to give us some input into this decidedly unique brew.
