"Ian is a force of nature . . . he's tenacious, steadfast, and reliable."

Meet Ian!

As we catch up with Ian, he’s just coming off his packaging shift. The team has just finished fixing our new boxing machine, which involved Mark Graves running out to grab a 100-ft ethernet cable so that the maintenance crew could remotely assess it and get everything fixed up!  

“Ian is a force of nature,” Packaging Supervisor Paul Greer shares. “Not destructive, like a hurricane, but tenacious, steadfast and reliable. He harnesses an incredible amount of power while remaining very cool, calm, and collected. He’s working his ass off, working and going to school—I don’t know how he does it. He has really done well so far. His capacity for doing work you ask him to do and finding what needs to be done without being asked is commendable.”

Paul shared an example with us: “The other day, I had a really tough time with a new piece of equipment we put in. James and I were running around trying to get answers. Ian goes over to the cabinet with all the electrical and there in the bottom were some electrical schematics. He takes it out and starts reading it. He says, ‘This is where the connection needs to be.’”

Paul shakes his head. “Not only was that way cool, but I couldn’t decipher those. Ian said, ‘Oh, a summer or two ago I installed fireplaces for a guy, and all the ignitions were solid state. If you couldn’t read an electrical diagram, your job was harder. So I just kind of picked it up.’”

“Ian’s just that kind of guy,” Paul shares. “He’s also got great leadership skills—he’s someone who’s easy to follow. Eisenhower said great leaders get others to do what they want them to do, because they want to do it, and Ian commands a great deal of respect on the team.” 

If you thought that was cool, just wait until you read more.

"He comes to work with a smile on his face, he’s got a good attitude, and in general, he’s got an awesome personality and sense of humor. He’s just fantastic.”

Meet John!

John Ackley is the brewery’s newest Warehouse Associate, and he’s been killing it so far. He’s thoughtful, articulate, and not only a pleasure to talk to, but a pleasure to work with as well!

“John is an integral team member to the warehouse,” says Warehouse Manager Polly Pollock-Bell. “When I throw a task his way, he gets it done. I don’t have to worry about following up, and I know if he’s on it, it’s taken care of. He’s also taken on a lot more responsibility quickly. There have been a few times that I’ve had to rely on someone when I’m not there, and I’ve been able to rely on him. He comes to work with a smile on his face, he’s got a good attitude, and in general, he’s got an awesome personality and sense of humor. He’s just fantastic.”

(Ed. note: We couldn’t include all of Polly’s insight on John, but she wants everyone to know that this is just a snapshot of why she’s so excited to work with him!)

She’s a total pro who came in and hit the ground running, and she fits in so well with everyone that it almost feels like she’s been here for years!”

Meet Tom!

Our newest soon-to-be Assistant Lab Technician, Packaging Operator Tom Dooner, has had a pretty awesome path to Cape May Brewing Company. We were lucky to catch him on his first training day in the lab for a few minutes while Lab Manager Lauren Appleman held down the fort. 

Tom joined our team in June as an intern, before moving into the packaging team later this summer. Because of his background, we knew he’d be a great addition to our lab team, and we’re thrilled to have him aboard!

Without further ado, meet our new lab team member Tom Dooner!
