It’s gotten us to change our outlook on everything.

Art on Beer

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but in the beer world, that’s exactly what we attempt to do on a regular basis.

When you’re walking down the beer aisle or perusing the coolers in your local shop, we know that an interesting label design is what’s going to pique your interest. If it catches your eye, you’re more likely to pick it up and give it a read.

That’s why graphic design is so important to breweries.

This week, as part of Philly Beer Week, our very own Social Media & Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg sat on a panel at U-Bahn, just a stone’s throw from City Hall, discussing Art on Beer.

Did DC

This past weekend was a whirlwind in our nation’s capital!

We debuted Rosé du Gose and L’Attitude in DC this weekend, and we poured Coastal Evacuation and Phantom Crew at SAVOR.

The crowd at SAVOR was really diggin’ Phantom Crew. A fellow brewery owner mentioned that it was the best Flanders-style Red that he’s ever tasted and he kept sending people to our booth to check it out.

We had a blast at Bar Deco, and we ran into a number of our fans at Boundary Stone. It was great — and just a little surreal — to see so many people in DC wearing our swag.

You can tell we had a great time. Check out the pictures below!

“It was a lot of fun,” Brian says, “They're a great group of guys up there - really laid back and down to earth. It was a very refreshing brew day, for sure.”

Collab with Carton!

One of the things we truly love about this business is the fact that beer brings people together. New friends and old can gather together over a pint and find some common ground.

This is true, not only of friends, but of the breweries themselves. We’re lucky in New Jersey that we have a ton of great beer coming out of this state — and, considering the fact that the law that really opened the floodgates for breweries only hit the books in 2012, we’re all relatively young and eager.

That’s why, when the subject of a collaboration with Carton Brewing up in Atlantic Highlands came up, we both jumped on board. Our Brew Crew was up there this week to brew up a very special brew.

We knew we’d found the best place possible to kick off the collaboration release.

Do DC

Next weekend is a big weekend in DC!

Not only will we be releasing Rosé du Gose and L’Attitude, but it’s the weekend of SAVOR — one of the swankiest beer festivals in the country, and Ryan will be taking part in the Brewers Association’s annual Hill Climb.

So, while Ryan is busy working on behalf of New Jersey’s breweries, talking with our legislators and imploring them to support legislation to help us out — like… killing that tariff on steel so our keg prices don’t go through the roof — the rest of the Brew Crew will be livin’ it up federal government-style in DC!

We’ve been truly lucky this year.

Three Great Awards!

Over the past week, we’ve been extraordinarily gratified to receive three very special awards.

The United States Coast Guard Community Foundation bestowed on us the Hometown Hero award, the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities gave us a Community Partners Award, and the Garden State Culinary Arts Awards gave us the Beer Professional Award.

It was certainly a week to remember.

“The folks at DC Brau are great. They’ve got similar values to us and make some great beer, so there are a lot of similarities between us.”

Cape May Brewing Co. and DC Brau Collaborate on Rosé du Gose

Remember what life was like when you were seven? (No? Was it that long ago? We’ll help….)

All of your friends were seven, too. Eight-year-olds seemed like they were old enough to run for governor and six-year-olds were entirely too juvenile to hang out with. You rolled your eyes at five-year-olds and nine-year-olds…? No. Zero commonalities.

But other seven-year-olds were right up your alley. They were mature enough to understand your seven-year-old hopes and dreams, such as they were, but not so mature as to make you feel like a baby.

That’s kind of how it is in the brewing world. Cape May Brewing Co. is about to hit our seventh year in July, and along the way, we’ve been lucky enough to forge some serious friendships with other breweries from the Class of 2011.

DC Brau — the District’s first modern packaging brewery — is one of those serious friendships.

We strive every year to create a remarkable experience by bringing together our friends and world-class sour, wild, and funky beer from all over the country.

Gettin’ Funky in Indiana

Makin’ waves.

That’s how we roll at CMBC: we’re making waves in the craft beer world, so we’re pretty lucky that we’re in a shore town.

We’ve been doing rather well in one particular aspect of craft beer: our sour program is unparalleled. We were one of the first breweries in New Jersey to brew sour beers; we recently released our sour IPA, Corrosion; and our barrel-aged sour, The Topsail, was named the Best Beer of 2017 by BeerConnoisseur.

So, it only makes sense to take the show on the road. That’s why we’ll be at Upland Brewing’s Sour Wild Funk Fest this weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Yep. Indiana.

“Getting to see other reps, breweries, and their beers is a great opportunity to keep informed about what’s going on in the industry.”

It’s ACBF Time!

What happens when you get nearly 200 of the best breweries in the country in the same room with some killer food and world-renown bands?

Whatever it is… it sounds like a place you need to be. And, conveniently, you’ll be able to find out the answer next weekend at the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival!

“The sky’s the limit.”

State of the Brewery, ’18

Last Friday, some 65 Brew Crew members poured into the Tasting Room for Ryan’s annual State of the Brewery address. Basically, it’s one of the few chances we get to have everyone in the same room at the same time. These annual, company-wide meetings are a great chance to get us all on the same page and excited about the year to come.

We Won!

Two weeks ago, we made a new friend. Mike O’Mara, co-owner of Night Shift Brewing outside Boston, jumped behind the bar for an hour to raise money for the Eagles Charitable Foundation.

We took him on a tour of the Production Brewery, and he lusted a little over our centrifuge. On the way back to the Tasting Room, he happened to mention that he was in the process of getting his pilot’s license, so, obviously, he and Ryan had a lot to talk about.

He was a great sport. Donned in a Patriots t-shirt with “We Lost” emblazoned on the back, he helped marshall an extraordinarily busy Saturday in the Tasting Room.

It was a great night. Check out the pictures below!
