Meet Andrew!

If you’ve been to the Tasting Room over the past few weeks, you may have noticed a few new faces. As we get closer to the summer season, we’ve got a slew of new people starting — on the retail side, in production, and in distribution.

Andrew Fischer is one of those new faces. A tall and lanky guy, Cape May is born and bred into him. He’s got an effortless, laid-back style that fits in perfectly with our nautical lifestyle at the brewery. Nevertheless, it’s his love for beer that makes him a perfect fit for us.

So, without further ado, meet Andrew!

“I’m learning more everyday,” he says. “I can’t wait to see where the road takes me.”

Welcome Sean!

Our Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm is fond of saying that he can teach anyone to work on our crew and brew beer, but a love for craft beer can’t be taught.

Every so often, though, we’re lucky to come across someone who has both: previous education and a love for beer. And Jimmy’s smart enough to snatch that person up when he’s given the chance.

And that guy happened to be in the right place at the right time: Sean McGuirl.

Meet Bill!

About a year ago, we were lucky enough to have Bill Zaninelli join our team.

Bill is beer. He’s been in the business for years and it fits him well. He started in merchandising for Crown Beer Distributors in college in the mid-80s, spending twelve years working his way up to General Sales Manager. He spent seven years with Beck’s, did a stint with InBev USA, then moved into craft beer. He worked with a few Vermont breweries, opening them to the New Jersey market.

Then, we got our mitts on him. We were lucky. He was lucky. Bill is one-of-a-kind.

Meet Bill!

“I love a good Cape May brew,” he says. “You can usually find me there a couple times a week.”

Welcome Jeremy!

“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.”

Someone, somewhere said that at some point — we tried to find who, but Google was not cooperative — and it’s some good advice.

It’s certainly true for our latest Packaging Operator, Jeremy Collins. Or, at the very least, he’s trying to find out.

Either way, he’d been such a fixture in the Tasting Room and we liked him, it only made sense to bring him aboard.

...the beer is good, the customers are great, and the employees are fantastic. It's like we're one, big, happy family.

Meet Jake!

Who is that red-headed guy behind the bar? Why that’s Jake Hauser!

Jake’s been with us almost two years, now. A Stockton grad with a degree in Marketing, when he’s not behind the bar, he’s probably making some mean barbecue.

“Jake is a naturally sweet and genuine guy,” says Retail General Manager Kaitlyn Smith. “When he asks you how you are, he really means it. He’s the first to volunteer for a shift — he’s a hard worker and just a genuinely nice guy.”

So, meet Jake!

Meet Sue!

If you’ve been to the brewery, odds are that you’ve had the good fortune of being greeted by Sue Gibson. Sue’s been a fan of ours since the early days and knows the ins and outs of the brewery better than anyone.

“She’s very informative,” says Retail General Manager Kaitlyn Smith. “She’s got a wealth of information about the brewery and our processes. She loves to meet new people, loves beer, and loves CMBC.”

She works full time at the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts, a frequent host of pop-up beer gardens over the summer and a beneficiary of one of our summer Pint Nights.

So, without further ado, meet Sue!

Are you sure we're not related? Cause you sure are Good-Lookin.

Meet Jeff!

If you’ve been to the brewery on a big day, odds are you’ve met Jeff Zagiel.

Jeff started in of 2015, after meeting Ryan and bonding over a mutual love of flying. Ryan was looking for a plane to rent and Jeff has a Cessna 172 — and Jeff loves beer and Ryan has a brewery — so it was a match made in aviation/brewing heaven.

His wife, Kim — herself a pint-sized bucketful of energy — was our first custodian, keeping our offices in tip-top condition.

Now, he’s the guy we call when we’re anticipating a particularly busy day.

“He’s reliable and such an easy-going Beertender,” says Retail General Manager Kaitlyn Smith. “You’ll see him a lot at the outside bar in the Beer Garden, and, if you’re very lucky, you might catch him doing the occasional weekend tour to Headquarters.”

So, without further ado, meet Jeff!

To be somewhere where people listen to you, it’s a refreshing change.

Welcome Tom!

We’re coming, Union County! We’re on our way!

We’ve recently begun distributing in Middlesex County. We’re working on Hunterdon, Somerset, and Union Counties, as well.

Why? Well… because we hired Tom LoBianco. He’s spent much of the past two decades selling beer in that area, so he was the perfect guy to put on the ground, getting our name out into this uncharted territory.

“This gets me closer to my goal.”

Congrats, Tony!

“Get your foot in the door.”

It’s great advice, particularly if you’re just getting started on your career. And when your career happens to coincide with your passion, you don’t drag your feet once that door opens a little more.

Such is the case with our latest Packaging Operator, Tony Zappaunbulso.
