“I had the American Dream experience.”

Welcome Polly

It takes a special kind of person to pick up and move 8,000 miles from the only home she’s ever known.

Luckily, at Cape May Brewing Company, we like special people. So, when Candice “Polly” Pollock-Bell applied for a full-time position in the Tasting Room, even though we didn’t have any full-time positions, we knew better than to let her slip through our fingers.

“Polly’s previous experience, while not warehouse-related, required the critical thinking and organizational skills that we need in the warehouse,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “Also, I was slack-jawed at one point in the interview when she told me that she’d been driving a forklift since she was eight. She said that she was rusty, but after ten minutes practicing in the parking lot, it was clear that she was perfect for the job.”

Welcome our new Warehouse Manager, Polly!

“I’ve learned quite a bit already. I’m already comfortable with the processes. It didn’t really take too long.”

Welcome Carl

Our newest Packaging Operator, Carl Gansert, has some serious chops.

“I hired Carl because he’s a good guy with some solid experience,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves. “He’s expressed a passion to be in this industry, which I saw from the limited time I met him, and he seems to be a high-character guy who fits in with the kind of person Cape May loves to hire. All those factors considered, it was an easy decision to make.”

Welcome Carl!

“Anyone I’ve ever talked to loves it here. They seem to look out for their employees and take care of them.”

Welcome Jenna Rae!

We’re expanding relatively quickly around here, and, while opening new territories is awesome, we’ve recognized the fact that we need someone to help maintain the ones we have. While the sales managers out in the field are great at what they do, it’s a good idea to have someone on staff to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Enter Jenna Rae Copson.

“She’s got a great personality,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “She’s tremendously business savvy, a hard worker, and she has a proven track record of positive results in her career. It doesn’t hurt that she’s got a lot of local ties and loves Cape May Brewing Company.”

“It seemed like an awesome work environment,” he says. “Everybody’s happy. Hopefully, I’ll still be able to continue to evolve and grow in the craft beer universe.”

Welcome Joe

Hey, there, North Jersey!

We’ve slowly been making our way through the northern counties of New Jersey, and we’ve recently hired Joe Zapoitc… Zapoticz… Zapoticzny…

…“Joe Zap”…

…to open up Passaic, Bergen, Essex, and Hudson counties for us!

“Joe’s got a bunch of experience, with over seven years in beer sales,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “More importantly, he really wants to get our name out there. He’s got a real desire to spread Cape May’s beers throughout Northeast New Jersey. When you combine that with a last name that’s as difficult to pronounce as my own, I know Joe’s going to do a great job here.”

Welcome Joe Zap!

“It’s a roller coaster ride. We’ll see where it goes.”

Welcome Ben!

You can take the surfer out of Cape May, but you can’t take the Cape May out of the surfer.

The newest member of the Tasting Room Brew Crew was raised here, then left for a few years, but is back and thrilled to be back at the beach.  

“Coming back home to Cape May County, Ben was looking for a fun place and a great company to grow with,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “He found that here. Ben has the ability to work multiple positions and has already stepped up, filling whatever needs we might have.

“We also just learned of some of his artistic skills so he is quickly becoming our resident chalkboard artist.”

Stop down, check out his art, and welcome Ben Stone!

“But I really dug the people here,” he says. “These guys were nice enough to let me come up and spend a few days in the brewery and kind of pull back the curtain to see what I was getting into. I’m super stoked.”

Welcome Brandon!

As we grow, we’ve seen the need for leadership in production. Last week, we introduced you to James, who, essentially exited the womb and started brewing, and this week, we’re proud to introduce you to Brandon Greenwood, our new Vice President of Operations, who’s been brewing as long as many of us have been alive.

“Brandon has nearly 25 years of experience with some of the biggest names in this industry,” Ryan said, “and we couldn’t be happier that he’s a perfect fit for CMBC. His extensive knowledge and know-how is coupled with his desire to preserve a company culture that he respects. He’ll be a strong leader on the production floor, and we’re grateful to have him aboard.”

Welcome Brandon!

Too many to name ONE favorite!

The Simpsons

You don’t have to love The Simpsons to work here, but it helps.

It’s surprising that the little show on a fledgling network such as Fox made it past its first few seasons. After all, George H. W. Bush once said that he wanted “to make American families a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons,” (and then the showrunners moved him and Bar across the street of Marge, Homer, and the kids). Now, the Simpsons are one of the few “nuclear families” (heh!) left on television. Their staying power truly is amazing, no doubt due to the strength of its fandom.

So, with the release of Krusty’s Partially-Gelatinated Non-Dairy Gum-Based Beverage on Saturday, we wanted to talk to the Brew Crew to find out what’s made this show the long-running juggernaut that it is.

“The people,” he says. “Everyone I met from the ownership down to the Tasting Room, everybody was real awesome.”

Welcome James!

Sometimes you’re looking for good help, and sometimes good help falls in your lap.

When someone with James Fox’s resume reaches out to you and inquires about a position that doesn’t yet exist, you bring him in.

“We were really impressed with his background and personality,” Ryan said, “and thought that he’d be a great fit. He really embraced what we do and had admired our culture, and wanted to celebrate that with us. It was a great opportunity to add leadership in production.”

Welcome James!

“When I saw the job and saw that it was for a brewery, I thought it would be pretty neat to work for a brewery,” he says. “I’m a beer guy, but I really had no concept as to how beer is produced.”

Welcome Rob!

Things break. It’s the natural lifecycle of things. However, when your lamp breaks, unless you’ve got a yen for mechanical engineering, you buy a new lamp. When something like our centrifuge breaks, for example, it’s a whole other story. We could either pay to have someone come down here and fix it, or we can have someone on payroll to make sure it doesn’t break in the first place.

That’s why, over the past few months, we’ve been looking for a Maintenance Technician to keep an eye on the vast amount of equipment around here. With Rob Page, we found our man.

“We needed someone who knew a little bit about everything,” says Hank. “Rob has worked with just about all of our equipment at some point in his career, so he could come in, ready to hit the ground running. And he totally has.”

Welcome Rob!
