“Honey Porter is the perfect cure for the end of summer blues."

Get Ready for Honey Porter—In Cans Near You!

It’s a really special day, y’all. Honey Porter, our woefully underappreciated brown porter typically available on draft year-round, is getting its time to shine in our traditional 12-ounce cans along with its fellow flagships!

Honey Porter releases in the Cape May Tasting Room today, Friday, October 15th, and it will be available throughout New Jersey and Delaware starting October 18th. Eastern Pennsylvania will start seeing the cans pop up starting Monday, October 25th.

You can order cans now from the Tasting Room, or check out what places near you stock our brews with our Beer Finder

Check out how the Brew Crew feels about Honey Porter’s 10th anniversary, and what it means to them!

CMBC Job Series: The Cellar

We’re lucky to have some incredible team members working with us here at CMBC, and we recently sat down with one of our cellar team members to get his thoughts on his time here and what it’s like in the cellar.

"Smelling DDH Follow the Gull post dry-hop was about the equivalent of sticking your face into a hop bag."

For the Hopheads and Lager Fiends

If you’ve been eagerly waiting for our next hopfest release or traditional beer style, you’re in luck this week, because we’ve got two brews that are great for a number of craft beer lover palates!

Our original Follow the Gull may have flown on through our Tasting Room earlier this year, but Double Dry-Hopped Follow the Gull swoops in this week for a swarm of hop flavor in a brilliant can design.

It doesn’t get much better than Longliner, either, which is our newest lager in six-packs that takes the best of some of our more recent lager styles to create a concoction that combines the crispness of Boat Ramp Champ, the hop notes of Cape May Lager, and the nuance of Cin Cin to form a Captain Planet-level awesome lager.

We spoke with Brewery Operations Manager James Fox about what folks can expect with these two!

Cotton Candy Day Dreams

It’s with a sigh of relief that our midnight brewing has come to a close. After a crazy summer season, the production team is looking forward to cooler weather in the brewhouse, and collective stocking up on Oktoberfest.

We caught up with Brewer Brad Young this week on his last overnight shift, and we just so happened to show up right as they were testing how Cotton Candy was doing in the tanks.

“The Lotus in this beer helps give mild vanilla notes. Cashmere is another hop that has a super orange-y, citrus-forward, sweet, tropical flavor.”

Can You Crush It, Though?

We don’t know about you, but we’re feeling pretty spoiled right about now. Not only did our beloved Blueberry Lemon Crushin’ It come back for a big release this year, but we’ve also debuted not one, but TWO new Crushin’ It flavors: Raspberry Lemon late last month and now Orange Vanilla this month!

The spectrum of Crushin’ Its ranges from the light notes of Grapefruit to the full-bodied mimosa qualities of the original Orange, to the slightly sweeter, lightly tart notes of Blueberry and the refreshing tartness of Raspberry Lemon. Now, Orange Vanilla stands out on its own as the first variant with vanilla and lactose for a truly dreamy brew. All of our brewers had a hand in this one, so we caught up with Brewers Emily Siddall and Brad Young this week to get their thoughts on this new beer!

“People who enjoy a tart beer, or one that’s almost a sour, are going to love this. It’s really nice and refreshing."

The New Tart, Red Crushin’ It Addition: Raspberry Lemon!

Much like their cocktail namesakes, our Crushin’ Its have been immensely popular this summer. So much so that we decided to bring everyone a brand new flavor this year!

Rounding out an already powerhouse family is Raspberry Lemon Crushin’ It, which debuts this week for a limited time in our Tasting Room, both on draft and in six-packs to go.

We caught up with some crew to find out more about this fascinating brew.

It’s a testament to the creativity of brewing: how you can have one defining flavor, but use it in two vastly different ways. 

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Beer

If you’re one of our intrepid fans who have collected each release so far, take note: #4 and #5 are out today, Friday July 2nd. Read on to find out more about why you won’t want to miss these!

Ten Perspectives on Anniversary Ale 10

Each year, we do something a bit different for our anniversary ales. For Anniversary Ale 7.0, we used seven different hop varieties, and it was dry-hopped with seven pounds-per-barrel, featured an SRM of 7, and an ABV of 7.7%. Anniversary Ale 9 last year was 9.0% ABV, and was crafted at nine pounds-per-barrel of hops. Do you see the pattern here?

While Anniversary Ale 10 bucks the tradition a bit (can you even imagine trying to wrangle a 10% ABV brew with TEN different hops in it??), we decided to pay homage to our number system by reaching out to ten crew members to talk about this brew. From each of our main departments, admin/marketing, sales/distribution, the Tasting Room, and production, we spoke with five OG crew members and five of the newest crew members to get their thoughts on our new double IPA, and what Cape May Brewery’s 10th anniversary means to each of them!

Read on to learn a bit more about some of your favorite crew members, and a sneak peek at some of our new crew members ahead of their blog features!

Make Room for Root Beer Float!

Next up in our On the Way to Cape May series is No. #003: Root Beer Float. As many folks already know, we make our own root beer and have it on draft in the Tasting Room. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to grab some to-go when we have enough in stock!

Our Culinary Ops, Soda Guru, and Cellarperson JP Thomas crafts our root beer and homemade ginger ale when he has time outside of cellaring all of our other brews, and it’s a great treat when we have it on draft.

For this series, we took that root beer flavor and scaled it up in a big way. This variant might be a bit different from the root beer you’ve had in the tasting room, as the bit of lactose gives it those root beer float vibes, but it’s just as delicious. We caught up with Cellarperson Andrew Casey and Production Planning & Specialty Brewing Manager Brian Hink this week to learn more!

Crusty Barnacle Makes Its Return This Week!

Crusty Barnacle has been a staple for the last several years, and it’s a favorite of many of our Brew Crew members and regulars.

Guest Guru Mary Braccili is a fan, and Operations Manager at Cape Beverage Craig Tropp also enjoys the funk of this brew. 

The brew has grown substantially from its humble roots as a Tasting Room team brew, and we’ve covered it at length on the blog before.

This year, we caught up again with Mark Graves. When we spoke with him in 2018 about this brew, Mark was a brewer, and he’s since worked his way up to become our Packaging Manager! 

He spoke with us about why this brew is so special, and what it offers that’s distinctly different from many of our usual brews.
