Sour Beer Day 2019

We’re proud of our sour beer program. We were one of the first in New Jersey to brew sour beers — certainly the first to have a dedicated sour brewery — and we’ve been going strong since the beginning.

Our first season of barrel-aged sours ended up with the top two entries on The Beer Connoisseur’s Top 10 American Wild Ales of 2017, with The Topsail being named their Best Beer of 2017. From the second season, Phantom Crew and Higbee won multiple awards. And, in this season of sour brews, The Beer Connoisseur rated Temporarily Permanent an astounding 95: Exceptional.

And, today, on Sour Beer Day, we’ll be celebrating sour beer in all its glory!

“Mooncusser is a juice-bomb-meets-balanced-crusher."

Mooncusser Pale Ale

Did you celebrate on Thursday? It was a pretty important day, in the grand scheme of things.

It’s too early to be Christmas. Thanksgiving is still a ways away. It’s not even Halloween yet. Regardless, for those in the know, Thursday was a very, very important day.

Of course, we’re talking about Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Granted, it doesn’t have the cachet of a National Hamburger Day (which was Wednesday) or a Sour Beer Day (which is Friday) or even a National Banana Day (which is April 15th), because all of them revolve around consuming some sort of food or liquid.

So, we’re taking back Talk Like a Pirate Day. How? you may ask.

By releasing a very pirate-y pale ale: Mooncusser Pale Ale.

“Kölsches are so crisp and clean that it is difficult to make a good one because there is nothing to hide behind if there are any off-flavors.”

Finisher

The journey is its own reward.

Go the distance.

Work hard, play hard.

You’re always out to better yourself. Your biggest competition is you. You push yourself each and every day to get better and better, and you don’t take good enough as success.

And, for that, you deserve a beer.

That’s why, on Saturday, in conjunction with the inaugural Beach to Brewery 10K, we’ll be releasing Finisher, a Kölsch-style ale, to celebrate the winner in each of us.

It's really bright and super vibrant.

The Grove

Sometimes life throws you a nice surprise when you least expect it.

Like finding $20 in the pocket of a pair of jeans you haven’t worn in months or noticing a squirreled-away can of The Bog in the back of your fridge in January, the least-expected surprises are sometimes the best.

Kind of like a citrus shandy in October. You don’t see it coming, it kind of catches you off-guard, but it’s definitely a nice surprise.

And our citrus shandy, The Grove, is definitely more than a “nice surprise”. It moves beyond the bounds of “nice” into the realms of “unbelievably delicious.”

“I like a more middle-of-the-road ABV beer like Captain May IPA at 6.4%, a little more than a session, but it won't put you on your ass if you have a couple.”

Captain May IPA

Right now, with summer drawing to a close, down at CMBC, we’re looking forward to 2020: deciding which beers will be on the schedule when, which ones will be coming back for an encore, which beers have taken their final bow, and which ones will be making their debut on the Cape May Brewing Company stage.

We will lay our plans as best we can, but you know what they say about best-laid plans: they will surely go awry.

(Don’t call me Shirley.)

Beer trends happen and they happen fast

Governmental regulations happen and they can happen completely without warning.

The federal government could conceivably shut down once again.

Because of these things, we have to be able to be nimble. We need to find ways to respond and change with the market, with trends, and within guidelines.

Kinda like what we had to do with our newest release, Captain May IPA. We designed this beer as a response to trends in the marketplace and were all geared up to release it back in March. We were ridiculously excited — the liquid was planned, the artwork decided upon…

Then, our plans surely went awry.

“If it’s half as good as the first batch last year, it’s going to be a home run.”

Strawberry Taffy

We love it when a plan comes together.

A few weeks ago, we told you about our collaboration with the good people at Great Notion, brewing up a beer that we collaborated on last year.

Now, at long last, Strawberry Taffy is finally available in our Tasting Room, this Saturday, August 31st!

We got together with James Dugan from Great Notion, wearing our old-school hops t-shirt — “I save it for special occasions” — and our very own Innovation Director, Brian Hink, to get the deets on this unique brew.

"It’s what I like to drink when I’m looking for a sour beer.”

Irrationally Exuberant

We’re really over-the-moon about this beer.

In fact, you might say that we’re… Irrationally Exuberant about it.

And for good reason. Irrationally Exuberant is the latest in a long line of excellent releases in our Barrel Aged Series.

“It’s very creamsickley.”

Takes Two to Mango

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Man. I really wish I could get an Orange Julius into a beer,” first, congrats on having been a mallrat in the 80s or early 90s, and second, it would appear as if your wait is over.

We swapped out the orange for mango, soured it, tossed in some maltodextrin, and decided that it Takes Two to Mango.

“It’s simple and clean, but it starts off pretty complex. It finishes dry and delicious.”

Bière de Mineur

This beer has been aging in stainless for about a year. In the fast-paced world of brewing, a year can be a long time.

Last year, we asked each leg of the production team — lab, packaging, cellarmen, and brewers — to design a beer. Bière de Mineur is the brewers’ addition to the mix.

So, Bière de Mineur has been aging so long that one of the guys whose idea it was doesn’t even work here anymore and another is in a completely different position.

"It's well-balanced and inviting, and I enjoy that.”

Possibly Maybe

After eight years, we’ve brewed a significant number of beers — nearly 400 on Untappd right now. In that time, we’ve certainly decided upon a few favorites, but, sadly, we can’t brew them all.

Our sour IPA, Corrosion, is one of them — a favorite around the brewery, but it didn’t make it onto the schedule this year.

Regardless, when we first brewed the latest in our Barrel Aged Series two years ago, Corrosion was still on the schedule and inspiring our Innovation Director Brian Hink.

While Possibly Maybe is definitely a different breed of cat — it’s a barrel-aged, dry-hopped golden sour — the similarities between the two are evident.
