“The people here are great. They welcomed me in with open arms. That’s what I like about it: it seems like a family environment. I feel like I have a second family. It’s great.”

Welcome Jake!

One of the good things about starting as a packaging technician is that, while there are a lot of skills that are particularly germane to the job, there are a lot of transferable skills that someone may have picked up along the way. 

“Jake is a good guy that was excited to come work for us,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves. “His employment background has a lot of parallels to a production brewery, so hiring him was an easy call.”

"There’s an atmosphere here -- you can put as many words as you want to describe it out in the air, and it just doesn’t do it justice until you actually step through the door and are welcomed as part of the team.”

Welcome Brock

It’s a well-known fact that the Packaging team is where future brewers are born: it’s the doorway to greater things. So, when you find someone with packaging experience who loves what we do, snatching him up means an investment in our future.

“Brock came to us with some experience from the industry,” says Packaging Director Mark Graves. “He has a passion for brewing, a good attitude, and a love for Cape May Brewing Company. That combination is hard to pass up.”

Welcome Brock Harton!

Beertender Appreciation Day!

World Bartender Day is February 24th, so we figured that this was the perfect time to express our appreciation for those folks behind the bar, slinging pints all day: our Beertenders.

While the typical bartender needs to know how to make every drink known to man off the top of their heads, our Beertenders have an even more herculean task: they need to know every single variety of hop, how each of them acts when in combination with every single other variety of hop, an endless list of malts, how they act with each other, how they act with the hops, how those flavors change based upon which yeast is used, how most of that information is completely upended in a sour beer, as well as every single beer ever created by Cape May Brewing Company or any other brewery on the planet so that when one of our visitors come through the door and says, “You know, I really liked this beer I had at this tiny brewery on Tierra del Fuego back in 1973. I don’t remember its name or what style it was or anything else at all about it, but do you have anything like that?” they can say, “Yes, you should try our 2020 Boughs of Barley, specifically the sherry variant, but you’re going to want to let it sit a minute and warm up a bit before you dive in because that’s going to release the flavors and aromas that most closely resemble that Tierra del Fuegian beer you had in 1973.”

And they do exactly that. Every. Single. Day.

Because they’re freakin’ rock stars.

So, to celebrate World Bartender Day, we caught up with eight current and former Beertenders to find out what they love about working at Cape May Brew Co.

“I love our coworkers. Especially because I’m not from here, it’s created a family for me."

Get to know Danielle Brasch!

This week, we decided to check in with one of the mainstays in the Tasting Room, four-and-a-half-year beertender and Tasting Room Supervisor, Danielle Brasch.

“Danielle is a great asset to the Tasting Room,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “She has been a consistent staple on Sundays throughout the years and has a great following of regulars. As the leader for our Social Committee, she is a big cheerleader, not only for the team here in the Tasting Room but across the company. Cape May Brewing Company would not be the place it is without Danielle Brasch.”

"The people I work with are great. They’re fun, young, ready to go. They’re hard workers. I can’t really complain.”

Welcome Austin!

We’ve often linked life in the warehouse to playing Tetris with beer: you need to have outstanding organizational skills as well as foresight into what your next move will be.

“Austin is such a delightful addition to the team,” says Warehouse Manager Polly Pollock-Bell. “During our Zoom interview, Austin highlighted his years of forklift experience as well as his organizational skills, and now I feel like he down-played his organizational skills. 

“Personally, I think he could join the dynamic duo Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin from The Home Edit or he could be the next Marie Kondo. I can see it already: Tidying Up with Austin Cornia. It would be a Netflix hit! Episode one: Austin Organizes 125 Pallets of Aluminium Cans by Brand and Size.

“He is fantastic at reworking a space to work functionally while looking ten times neater. He’s such an asset to production. We are constantly growing and always finding ourselves running out of floor space, but Austin has great vision and foresight and somehow makes space available.

“I love working with him. 10/10. Five Star Review.”

Welcome Austin Cornia!

“I never expected a marketing role to open at Cape May Brewing Company, so when I saw it, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. It’s kind of crazy how things worked out.”

Welcome Casey!

We always say that the biggest fans make the best employees, but it’s incredibly gratifying to know that, in addition to our beers, we have fans of our marketing.

“We had a number of great candidates for the position of Marketing Associate,” says Marketing Director Alicia Grasso, “but Casey was the obvious choice. Not only has she been a fan of our beer for several years, but she’s also been a fan of our marketing for at least as long. An avid reader of our blog and a longtime follower on social media, she comes to us with a great deal of existing knowledge about our brands and marketing initiatives. With her positive attitude and strong work ethic, I’m looking forward to the talents she’ll bring to our department.”

Welcome Casey McBride!

“I’m not disappointed in any way. The job is exactly what I was looking for. It’s been a great ride so far.”

Welcome Mike!

Cape May Brewing Company can feel like a melting pot sometimes, with everyone from college students to retirees filling out the Brew Crew. Our newest Barback/Brewtique Associate is one of the latter: a recent retiree of the Delaware State Police.

“Mike felt like a natural fit for the Tasting Room with his laid back vibe and love for Cape May,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “Mike brings a great work ethic and professionalism to the Tasting Room. His positive energy follows him into the Tasting Room every shift.”

Welcome Mike Austin!

The Brew Crew Holiday Hits

While this holiday season is going to look a little different, there’s one thing that’s sure to keep some sense of normalcy: a good holiday soundtrack.

So, we hit up the Brew Crew for their favorite holiday songs, and, in true Brew Crew fashion, they didn’t disappoint.
We’ve got over two full hours of Christmas music, including everything from Bing Crosby (obviously) to Chance the Rapper. The Pogues. Wham!. Chuck Berry. Bruce Springsteen. Tom Jones. Hanson. And, while there are multiple versions of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” on this list, none of them are by Mariah Carey!

We’ve got them all nice and tidy in a Spotify playlist. And be sure to follow us on Spotify! You’ll be able to listen in to what the folks in Production are listening to while they’re brewing your favorite beer. How cool is that?!?

Skip the milk and cookies — for 2020, Santa wants a beer.

And Santa’s not picky. He’ll drink any Cape May Brewing Company brew.

So, this week, we caught up with the Brew Crew to find out what they’re stocking up on this holiday season.

“Hands down, I can tell you, one hundred percent, I absolutely love it. I love it. I love the culture, and I’m totally drinking the Kool-Aid. I can’t get enough of this place. If I could work seven days a week, I probably would.”

Welcome Liz!

Over the past year or so, we’ve been focusing on bringing together a lot of the functions of our accounting department. And, to do so, we needed to find someone with a broad background.

“A lot of what Liz will be doing day-to-day had previously been outsourced,” says CFO Frank Stempin, “but we wanted to bring all of those functions in-house, and Liz was the final piece of the puzzle. She brings extensive experience in multi-company consolidation and financial accounting, so now we’ll be fully independent in all aspects of our finances.”

Welcome Accounting Manager Liz Feyas!
