Samplings with Cape Beverage

Things have really been gearing up with our new distribution arm, Cape Beverage! We’re now distributing through all twenty-one counties in New Jersey, and we’ve been getting tons of new fans through our sampling program.

We’ve recently hired several Brand Ambassadors — bright, interesting, outgoing people who love Cape May Brew Co. and know everything there is to know about our beers.

You can find them behind a brightly-colored, completely unmissable CMBC-branded table, handing out samples of our brews at a liquor store near you. Keep tabs on the calendar on the Cape Beverage website for details!

Our Sales Assistant Jenna Rae Copson has been leading the charge for our sampling program, so we sat down with her to get the deets.

“It’s been very natural. Brian and I get along really well, and you guys make great beer. It’s really fun to hang out with you guys.”

Great Notion Collaboration, Part Deux!

One of the great things about this industry — aside from all the awesome beer — is that we get to collaborate with awesome people from around the country.

Last year, during hops selection, we stopped by Great Notion in Portland, Oregon, to brew up a Strawberry Salt Water Taffy IPA called Strawberry Taffy.

This year, they’ve returned the favor, with owner James Dugan stopping by our Production Facility with his brother Matt to help brew our batch of Strawberry Taffy, due to hit taps and cans by the end of the month.

We sat down with the both of them to get the lowdown on this collaboration.

IPA Day 2019

It’s one of our favorite random, made-up holidays at CMBC: IPA Day is on Thursday, August 1! We don’t know where it came from, but we’re excited nonetheless!

A day to celebrate one of the most popular and widely-imbibed beer styles known to man? You know that’s something we can totally get behind.

We caught up with the Brew Crew to find out which of our tasty IPAs is their favorite, and how they will be celebrating. 

Check it out!

"I look forward to many years of working with Ryan to better beer in the U.S.”

Ryan on the Board

There have been a lot of great things happening around the brewery over these past few weeks. Babies, anniversaries, expansions, partnerships, and, of course, literally tons of great new brews.

Now there’s even more great news: Ryan Krill was named as an Ex Officio member of the board of the Beer Institute!

“It’s an exciting time for us, and we can’t wait to bring the beer our fans have come to love on their trips down to the Jersey Shore to their homes in Pennsylvania.”

Expansion into Reading

If Billy Joel is to be believed — and there’s no reason not to believe the Piano Man himself — in Allentown, they’re closing all the factories down, and out in Bethlehem, they’re killing time by filling out forms and standing in line.

But our (grand)fathers fought the Second World War and spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore. When they did, they were probably introduced to some good beer. That is, if they did so after 2011.

So they’re waiting there in Allentown. Waiting for some CMBC. They’re waiting in Bethlehem. They’re waiting in Reading. And in Easton. And Lancaster and Kutztown and Strasberg and Nazareth.

And we’ll be there to help them out.

“We’ve always looked up to Yards and have a lot of respect for them, and that’s why they’ll be an awesome partner for this next phase in our growth.”

Cape May Brewing Company and Yards

When it comes to brewing in the Philly area, there are a couple of big names, but there’s one that’s always stood head and shoulders above the rest.

They essentially started the Philadelphia craft beer scene back in ‘95.

Their Philadelphia Pale Ale released in 2000 is both ubiquitous and delicious.

Social Media and Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg literally cannot get enough of their cherry and raspberry ale.

Their new facility on Spring Garden St. made headlines when it opened in 2017.

By now, you probably realize that we’re talking about Yards Brewing Company, and we’ll be partnering with them to bring you Cape May Lager.

"With us and DC Brau there, it should be a fun night."

CMBC Takes DC

You know how sometimes you over-schedule yourself? You’ll have brunch with friends, then a barbecue at your aunt’s, then dinner with your step-mom, and then drinks with an old friend from high school?

That’s kinda how our week in DC is shaping up.

Sustainability at CMBC

A year and a half ago, Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man sat down and determined our Core Values. These are a set of principles — a code of conduct — things that we’d been doing, but it was smart of them to sit down and type them up in a Powerpoint presentation.

While everything from Be a Pro to Have Fun is important, we truly love to Be a Good Neighbor.

And that doesn’t simply mean that we should grab a burrito at the Taco Shop or carry candles from A Place on Earth in our Brewtique. We do, but we’re also charged with engaging our community near and far.

On Earth Day — and every day –, that includes being a steward to our planet. We’ve only got one, and we should leave it as we found it.

After all, it’s the only one with beer.

Brew for a Cause

TwinFin_CleanUp

As a brewery essentially located in the middle of the Atlantic, the ocean is of vital importance to us. Not only does it produce over half of the world’s oxygen, but it provides many of the opportunities for tourism in our area and adds $282B to the US economy.

And the scallops. Don’t forget about the scallops.

So, when Iron Hill’s Voorhees location approached us to do a collaboration brew benefiting Surfrider Foundation South Jersey — a non-profit, activist organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves, and beaches — it was a no-brainer.

“We’re inextricably tied to the ocean in Cape May,” says Ryan, “and it’s up to the businesses and residents who are here year ‘round to protect it. It’s — by far — the most precious and threatened natural resource we have in our area, so, when Iron Hill came up with the idea of a collaboration to support Surfrider South Jersey, we were happy to come aboard.”

That’s why we’re getting together to brew Twin Fin, a kettle-soured, session, New England-Style IPA, overflowing with juicy hop aroma and an enticing tartness and oozing with flavors of pineapple, tart lemon, and tropical fruits.

We as women not only have to support each other, we have to empower each other.

Pink Boots Brew Day

Last Friday, the women of the brewery banded together to brew their Pink Boots collaboration brew, Maybe She’s Brewed with It, then attended a luncheon with honorary speakers Hillary Barile of Rabbit Hill Farms, Cape May County Chamber of Commerce President Vicki Clark, and Assemblywoman Carol Murphy at Lucky Bones Backwater Grille.

Since Straight to the Pint is usually written by a dude, we handed over the reins to one of the talented women at the brewery, Marketing Assistant Kristen Taylor.

Check out her account of the day!
