Sea Chest

It’s only mid-January, but we’re all wishing that it was quite a bit warmer. Thankfully, like most things, we’ve got a beer for that!

Enter Sea Chest: a New England IPA set apart in the sea of NEIPAs.

(Sea what we did there?)

With one sip of Sea Chest, you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to sunny days and beach weather, with your feet in the sand and the sun glinting off the Atlantic.

Man, that sounds really nice about now….

"I know 'hop bomb' gets thrown around a lot around these blogs, but I think this is the hoppiest of hop bombs, and I love the beer for it."

The Brew Crew on Snag & Drop

It’s one of our favorite beers at the brewery, chock full of nearly all of the hops you could conceivably fit in a beer.

That’s Snag & Drop, our 10% ABV Triple IPA.

Dank and resinous, with hints of pine and orange citrus in the background, this alluring Triple IPA is packed to the gills with some of our stickiest and most pungent hops. 

We hit up the Brew Crew to find out what they love about this perennial favorite.

Your 2020 New Year’s Resolution

Last week, we released our Indulgent Imperial Stout, Last Hurrah, just in time to help you ring in the new year.

However, odds are that you’re going to wake up on January 1st and realize that you had a few too many Last Hurrahs. You might regret the last one or two. Sounds like it’s time for a New Year’s Resolution.

For CMBC, our New Year’s Resolution is to brew a high-flavor, low-impact Brut Pilsner, so we’re pleased to present a 4.2%, highly-sessionable canned offering to help you achieve that new-year-new-you mindset. Moderately hopped with the finest Czech Saaz hops, New Year’s Resolution is dry, crisp, and intensely drinkable.

Available in the Tasting Room on December 26th, this is the second year we’ve made this resolution, so you can read what people had to say about last year’s version below!

“Dangerous.”

Last Hurrah is back!

As the year draws to a close, you’re probably getting all geared up for one Last Hurrah.

We know what it’s like. You deserve the chance to celebrate all that you’ve done over the past year, and we want to be along for the ride.

That’s why we brewed up Last Hurrah. Last year, we brewed up a big and boozy 15% stout, originally planning to make it a pastry stout, but changed our minds.

“Well, last year the intention was to go full-on Pastry Boi with it,” says Innovation Director Brian Hink, “but tackling such a huge stout felt like a big win for us, and honestly we really wanted that to stand out on its own. The production team was incredibly jazzed about making a deliciously smooth monster of a stout that we — at the point we were planning to pastry-ize it — opted to let that big, beautiful stout shine on its own.” 

This year, we still brewed up a massive and overly-indulgent Imperial stout, but went with a version of our original plans from last year. 

“When planning for this year’s began,” Brian continues, “we discussed going full-on Pastry Boi, but I was worried we’d lose the people who loved last year’s for being an unadulterated stout, so we toed the line between the big base stout and a full-blown Pastry Boi, opting for a delicate approach to these over-the-top flavors.”

Last Hurrah is meant for going out with a bang. Brewed with an immensely complex grain bill — and a massive one at that — this is our beloved over-the-top and excessive end-of-the-year send-off. Last Hurrah is conditioned on house-toasted coconut flakes, cinnamon, and Madagascar vanilla beans, and has aromas of chocolate and freshly-roasted coffee, with a smooth finish and gentle warming quality.

We’ll be releasing Last Hurrah only in the Tasting Room this Saturday. Check out the track record of this beer, then come down and grab your own!

Roped In

There once was a brewery from Nantucket
Whose beers we wish came in a bucket.
Cisco’s the name
And beer is their game
So we decided to collaborate with them and not mention the obvious rhyme to this limerick!

“Merry & Brite is piney, malty, with a subtle floral quality. It's a definite throwback.”

Merry & Brite

As the holiday season draws near and the year comes to a close, there are a few things you’re simply not going to be able to avoid.

You’re probably not going to be able to avoid Yoko Ono caterwauling her way through an otherwise lovely John Lennon Christmas tune, “Happy Xmas (War is Over)”.

You’re probably not going to be able to avoid those time-consuming holiday tasks that have become your least favorite: whether it’s wrapping presents or hanging lights or baking cookies.

And, in all likelihood, you’re probably not going to be able to avoid becoming introspective. Nostalgic. At some point, someone’s going to break out a photo album — remember those?!? — and you’re going to start thinking about your old Dalmatian, or bike riding with all of your best friends from middle school, or that time you broke your arm because you were stupid enough to believe that a Superman cape actually bestowed flying abilities upon the wearer, and, at some point, a flood of memories will come back to give you a smile, or a laugh, or a tear.

It’s unavoidable.

Luckily, this holiday season, we’ve brewed up a beer just as nostalgic to help get you through all of those memories. We went old-school with our newest IPA: Merry & Brite.

“This was a really fun project, and I'm glad that the end result came out so unique and tasty.”

Coquito

It’s not a particularly well-known drink, but those of us who are lucky enough to have been introduced to it at some point in our lives are absolutely fanatical about it.

Maybe a friend’s abuela whipped some up a few Christmasses ago. Perhaps someone’s tito was well-known for making a batch around New Year’s. Or maybe you’re lucky enough to have been raised in a Puerto Rican family who brought this out every year over the holidays.

Either way, the combination of dark spiced rum, cream of coconut, sweetened condensed milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg has brought joy to countless generations of Puerto Ricans throughout the holiday season. Commonly referred to as “Puerto Rican Egg Nog”, there’s only one drink that fits this bill.

Coquito.

Ohhhh, coquito.

So creamy. So coconut-y. So spicy and so, so delicious. 

At Straight to the Pint, we firmly believe that the best way to understand and appreciate a culture is by sampling their cuisine. And at Cape May Brewing Company, we believe that the best way to honor a culture is by brewing a beer based on that cuisine.

So, this holiday season, we understand, appreciate, and honor our friends from that small Caribbean island in the only way we know how: with a beer based on their favorite holiday drink: Coquito.

“It’s definitely a beer that’s meant to be shared with close friends and family.”

Boughs of Barley 2019 with the Brew Crew

Can you feel it? Can you feel that the holidays are getting close? There’s an electricity in the air: everyone has a smile on their face and a warmth of heart that can only mean that we’re entering the holiday season.

It’s the time to get together with friends and family both near and far, no matter how time and circumstance have flung you apart. There’s nothing better for the holidays than gathering with the people you love around a warm fire, rehashing old memories and making plans for the future.

And there’s only one beer — or two! — you’ll want for just such an occasion: Boughs of Barley 2019.

In the spirit of togetherness, we sat down with a few of the guys in production, popped open a few bottles of Boughs of Barley 2019 — both the port and bourbon variants –, and recorded their reactions for posterity.

“The Bourbon variant plays out much like you would expect... but the port plays out completely differently."

Boughs of Barley 2019

The season is drawing nigh. Temperatures are dropping, the world is decorated in greens and reds, and we’ve even seen a few snowflakes.

The holidays will be here before you know it. 

It’s almost time to break out the ice skates and to perfect your often-imitated-but-never-duplicated snowman-building technique. Polish up the skis and dust off the sled. Ice up your arm because the kid next door has been getting really good over the past few winters with his snowball aim.

And you’re going to want to keep warm while doing those things. That’s where this year’s variants of Boughs of Barley come in.

“It's definitely a unique DNEIPA in the sea of them out there these days.”

Swinging the Lamp

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, you’re going to want a beer that will stand up to the barrage of sweet and savory deliciousness that will fill your plate next week. From turkey to green bean casserole to cranberry sauce and stuffing, you’ll want a beer that will play off of all of those flavors well.

And, odds are that, once you’ve gathered around the Thanksgiving table, you may hear one or two stories being told, all with varying degrees of believability. You’ll need a beer to get you through all of that, as well.

With Swinging the Lamp, we may have overshot our mark. 

Our newest double New England IPA, Swinging the Lamp is filled with strong notes of juicy pineapple and stonefruits, backed up by a gentle hint of cedar and coconuts from our Hornindal Kveik yeast.

And with a seafaring name that refers to telling unbelievable stories — the theory is that the more the lamps slung from the deckhead begin to swing, the more the storyteller is exaggerating — you can call your family out when they start… you know… swinging the lamp.
