“This beer is light and crisp with a nice spiciness backed by citrus.”

Great Wit Shark

Get ready for a shark attack.

From time to time, they happen at the Jersey Shore. In fact, back in 1916, there were enough in one season to inspire the book and movie Jaws.

This season, though, you’re not going to want to avoid these sharks. You’re going to want to seek them out. At least, you’ll want to look for Great Wit Shark from Cape May Brewing Company.

No sharp teeth on this one. No fins, no muscular Jaws. (And, unfortunately, no Roy Schneider or Richard Dreyfuss, either.)

Only a clean and gentle Belgian-style wit with a touch of orange and lemon peels, coriander, and grains of paradise.

You’re gonna need a bigger boat.

“Everything is better with Brett.”

Always Bretty

Haaaave… you met Brett?

Brett — full name Brettanomyces lambicus — is known to bring the funk. He’s a bit of a wild guy, and he’s Always Ready to get down.

So, we let them chill together for ten weeks — just to the point where things are funky enough without being too funky.

“Very light and refreshing. Perfect on a hot day.”

Summer Catch is here!

If you’re anything like us, summer officially began this past weekend.

And the temperatures (and humidity) have been around to make sure no one forgets.

When summer rolls around and the temperatures start hitting that 90° mark, there’s only one beer that will do: Summer Catch. Full of flavor with notes of orange peel, tropical fruits, and a hint of classic Belgian essence, Summer Catch is citrusy, refreshing, and maybe a little too crushable. Lightly dry-hopped with Citra and Amarillo, it’s unpretentious yet complex: kinda like life at the Jersey Shore.

“It’s clean and crisp and doesn’t have the typical Belgian esters of other witbiers,” says Head Distribution Specialist Chris Martin. “I love to kick back with one after mowing the lawn on a hot day.”

“I truly appreciate that everyone at CMBC is part of the Brew Crew and that an Events Team Member can come up with a beer and see it put into production.”

Refresh-zing

One of the great things about working at CMBC is that we’ve got a number of homebrewers around this place. From the Beertenders to the brewers, odds are that, at any given time, someone currently working has something fermenting at home.

So, when we decided to begin holding internal homebrew contests last year, it was no surprise that we had entrants from numerous departments throughout the brewery.

We’ve had four of these contests — the past three winners have been two brewers and a Beertender (who’s also won numerous awards as a homebrewer).

For the contest that produced this weekend’s release, Refresh-zing — a Belgian Saison with cayenne, turmeric, ginger, and coriander — we were thrilled to see a member of the Events team come through with the win. Jenna Tesauro — Associate Director of Academic Affairs and Advising at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania by day, events rockstar by night — came through with the winning recipe this time around, and the beer blew us all away.

“It's approachable for the Everyman beer drinker, but it has a subtle complexity that the craft beer drinker really enjoys.”

Wild Wooder is Here!

Morey’s Piers in Wildwood is celebrating 50 years of quality entertainment at the Jersey Shore, and we’re along for the ride.

Er… rides. Morey’s has over sixty rides for the young and young-at-heart, all overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean on the thrilling Wildwood boardwalk.

Now, while you trod the boards and take your chances on such rides as Cygnus X-1, Atmosfear!, Ghost Ship, The Great Nor’Easter, the Sea Serpent, or the all-new Runaway Tram, you’ll be able to sip on Cape May Brewing Company’s newest creation: Wild Wooder.

“This is the perfect brunch beer.”

Crush this can!

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Man, I really like this Orange Crush. I wish it were a beer,” you’ve come to the right place.

Last year, Crushin’ It was one of our first exclusive releases, born from an internal homebrewing contest, and, suffice it to say, it was wildly popular. The response to it was overwhelming, such that, even though the first run was limited to about a hundred cases or so, it became exceedingly obvious that we needed to get it out for distribution.

So, that’s what we did. We brewed up another batch, kegged it up, and sent it out to some very grateful customers.

This year, we’re bringing it back. A few times, in fact. We’ll be dropping Crushin’ It on you guys a few more times this summer; however, with a whole new look.

“Great, easy-drinking beer.”

Follow the Gull reviews

Back in 2017, Cape May County asked us to help them celebrate a milestone. 325 years worth of milestones, in fact.

When your home county asks you to help them celebrate, you step up, particularly when they’re celebrating a birthdate that’s only 70 years after Plymouth.

Cape May County is olllllddd, y’all.

So, we brewed up a killer IPA in Follow the Gull — a juicy and ultra-drinkable hop-bomb bursting with tropical and citrus aromas — and people loved it! They loved it so much that we knew we had to keep bringing it back.

Check out what people had to say below!

It’s light and tastes like summer.

Tan Limes Reviews

One of the great things about working at a brewery is that we get to taste test everything that we make before it goes out for release.

Tan Limes is no exception. And everyone has been loving the fresh and zesty lime flavor with a hint of Cape May Sea Salt.

We decided to hit up the Brew Crew to find out what it is that they all love about it.

Check it out!

“It has this malty complexity that’s rich and indulgent, and when paired with the bourbon characteristics that came through from the barrel aging, it has this beautiful velvety texture that pairs amazingly well off of the base beer.”

Bourbon Barrel Aged Concrete Ship

We see you shiver. With antici….

…pation.

That’s pretty much how barrel aging goes. We’ll start on a project, then shiver with anticipation for about a year until we finally get to reap the fruits of our labors.

It’s the case of this week’s release: we’ve had our fan-favorite Russian Imperial stout, Concrete Ship, aging for ten months in freshly emptied bourbon barrels, and the anticipation is finally over.

“There isn't too much going on with this beer and that’s not a bad thing.”

Tan Limes

There’s something to be said for simplicity. (Obviously, though, not a lot.) And when the weather turns warmer, the last thing you want in life is complexity.

Particularly in the humid bogs of South Jersey.

Keep it clean. Keep it simple. Keep it ridiculously drinkable.
