“If I’m at a place where they treat me decent, with respect, and they help me move forward, I’ll stay there forever. I’m really grateful Cape Beverage gave me the chance.”

Welcome PJ!

Once you’ve met the woman of your dreams, picking up and moving from the Dominican Republic to Egg Harbor Township doesn’t seem like much of a daunting task. Such was the case for our newest Warehouse Associate, Pedro “PJ” Martinez.

Cape Beverage Operations Manager Justin Vitti liked that PJ brought with him over a decade of experience in a warehouse environment — and he told us so in Spanish.

“Pedro aporta más de diez años de experiencia trabajando en un almacén en República Dominicana,” he said, confusing the staff at Straight to the Pint. “Se centró en el control de inventario y en el manejo de todas las solicitudes entrantes y salientes. Aunque no es una cerveza específica, se adapta perfectamente al ajetreado tráfico de nuestro almacén.”

(Thank goodness for Google Translate.)

Cape Beverage Warehouse Manager Craig Tropp likes having PJ around, as well.

“Pedro being here is integral to getting all the trucks out on time in the morning,” he says. “He brings us music that we would have never heard before, including his own produced works.”

Welcome PJ!

"I love Labor Day Weekend because it’s one last chance to see all of our fans who make a trip to the Beer Garden or Brewtanical Garden to enjoy some of their favorite beers! I'll be at the Tasting Room this weekend ready to serve one more Pour at the Shore."

Labor Day with the Brew Crew

It’s a bittersweet holiday, Labor Day. 

While we have a great time at the Tasting Room, we know that it means that summer is ending, and we have to say goodbye to all of the wonderful people who have visited over the summer season.

On the other hand, we also know that the hustle and the bustle of the summer season will soon be behind us. Cooler days and shorter lines await.

For the rest of us, it’s the perfect time for a day off. So, we decided to check in with the Brew Crew to see how they’d be celebrating the three-day weekend and which of our beers they’d be using to unwind.

"I really like the fact that they feed us on Thursdays!”

Welcome Marcus!

It’s grueling work, but our Distribution Specialists — the folks out there delivering our beer to our accounts — are truly the unsung heroes of Cape Beverage. After all, without them, we’d be sitting on a lot of beer, and you folks out there would be mighty thirsty.

So, when Marcus came to interview, we were lucky that it was pretty obvious that he’d fit right in.

“Without even realizing it, Marcus embodied many of our Core Values during his initial interview,” says Cape Beverage Operations Manager Justin Vitti. “The atmosphere in the room around him was totally Fun, and it was almost as if he was a longtime friend, simply hanging out in the conference room. He was Direct, Honest, and Respectful in responses to some really difficult interview questions. His positive and cheerful attitude makes him a great fit within the complexities of the Distribution team at Cape Beverage.”

Welcome Marcus Harris!

The Brew Crew and Their Furbabies

If there’s one thing that we love at Cape May Brewing Company… well… that would be beer.

But if there’s another thing that we love at Cape May Brewing Company, it’s our pets. 

International Dog Day was this past Wednesday and International Cat Day was earlier in the month. While we’re glad to see days dedicated to celebrating our pets, we’re not entirely sure why we need a whole day. After all, they already run our lives.

Nonetheless, we’ve got a huge number of animal lovers in the Brew Crew, so we decided to find out which of our beers their pets would be. And we asked them to submit a picture. One picture. Many found it difficult to choose only one.

Get ready to boop some snoots!

“I love it. I really love the pace of it. Particularly my job: I just come in and work. That was another big part of what I enjoyed.”

Welcome Chris!

When you’re looking for a change of pace — and you love beer — there’s no better place to begin a career change than in the packaging department.

“When I interviewed Chris,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves, “I could tell that he was a hard worker. Having come from the hospitality industry — another multifaceted industry where you’re frequently asked to do a million things at once –, I knew he wouldn’t have a problem handling the multitasking we’d be throwing at him. He’s a great guy and really interested in learning about the beer industry.”

Welcome Chris Baruffi!

"I come here every day hoping to have fun. If we’re all having fun at work, then it’s a good day.”

Welcome Jonathan!

One of the great things about working in the Tasting Room is that, while it’s a great full-time gig, it’s also a fun second job for a lot of people in many different walks of life. From retirees to teachers, it’s a great job if you’re looking for some extra cash in a fun environment at a great company.

Now, we can add full-time firefighters to that list.

“Jon was hired just a few days before we went into quarantine and never actually got to work a shift,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “Since reopening, Jon has been one of the hardest workers in the Tasting Room: he comes in every day ready to complete whatever is asked. Being a firefighter he also brings a strong sense of safety to the team, and his skills are constantly being utilized.”

Welcome Jonathan Edwards!

“Everyone is so helpful. When you have a problem, they actually care, rather than putting it off to the side.”

Welcome Caitlyn!

As the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we were in the midst of bringing on a few new faces in the Tasting Room. Luckily, as the pandemic has dragged on, several of them have proven themselves to be a fantastic addition to the team. 

Including Caitlyn Crain.

“Working with Cait has been a great experience!” says Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith. “She started as the COVID quarantine started and has brought such a positive attitude to work every single day. She has been a quick study in the Brewtique and always has great suggestions to make us even more efficient. She has a fantastic sense of humor and a super friendly personality which both our customers and staff love! She jumps right in to help whenever she can and has been an awesome addition to our team!” 

Welcome Caitlyn!

“There’s a good reputation, which makes selling our product easier. The beer is good, and people know that. So, I want to see where it goes and how big and strong the company can get.”

Welcome Paul!

Just prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were looking for a Sales Manager to cover our Middlesex-Mercer-Hunterdon-Somerset territory. At the time, we didn’t know how the world would be changing a few weeks later, and, in hindsight, bringing on the wrong person could have been disastrous.

Luckily, we found the right person: Paul Minore.

“He’s been in the business for years, and he knows his stuff,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “And he knows Jersey, too. He trained for two days and took over the route without a problem, hitting the ground running. He’s signed accounts that we couldn’t get before. Our clients like him because he gives them personalized service — he’s a good communicator. We’ve got a great team in the northern part of the state, and he fit right in. 

“He’s our quiet assassin. He’s everything I would want in a Sales Manager.”

Welcome Paul Minore!

"During these dog days of summer, I’m hitting the beach and relaxing by the water’s edge with a cold, refreshing Tan Limes."

Beat the Heat!

It’s hot.

Like… really hot.

The air feels like we’re on the sunward side of Mercury. 

A camel sauntered by the brewery yesterday, picked up a six of Tan Limes, looked at us, said, “Screw this,” and got on a plane to Alaska. A freakin’ camel!

On the bright side, our papayas are coming in nicely. The coconuts look great. Those kiwis came in handy for Summa Down Unda.

But, we know that there’s no better way to cool down than with a cold Cape May brew. We asked the Brew Crew for their favorite ways to beat the heat, as well as asked them which beer does it best.

"I don’t know anywhere that’s got better tasting beer or a bigger selection.”

Welcome Tom!

We have a few current and former teachers working in the Tasting Room, and it makes sense: one of the most important aspects of the Tasting Room is that we need to provide an “educational experience”. Teachers are uniquely qualified to provide exactly that.

And one of our newest Greeters, Tom Myers, has spent most of his life in education, first as an elementary school teacher and eventually retiring as a principal.

“Tom is a former educator so he fits naturally into the role of Greeter and tour guide,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “His engaging personality is perfect for welcoming our guests into the Tasting Room. It also didn’t hurt that we both are PSU alumni.” 

Welcome Tom!
