I feel like I’m working with really smart people. Really smart people.

Welcome Katie!

As we grow, our accounting department grows with us. It’s been a challenge for us to find someone to lead it — there’s a lot to learn, and we definitely need the right person. We found that with Katie VanZandt.

“She’s a total pro,” says Ryan. “She’s got experience throughout the area, in hotels and businesses that we really respect. Her accounting experience was just what we were looking for to head our department as we grow.”

Welcome Katie!

It’s an incredibly balanced beer: perfect alcohol content and a hop flavor that keeps you wanting more.

Why We Love Coastal Evacuation

If it wasn’t your first Cape May brew, it was probably your second. It’s meant for sharing with friends, enjoying on a cold night by the fire, or perhaps on a warm day on the beach.

It’s a Double IPA that’s as big and bold as hurricane season itself. It’s time to evacuate. Are you prepared?

You’re not prepared if you haven’t stocked up on Coastal Evacuation.

We caught up with the Brew Crew to find out what they love about this perennial favorite.

Honestly, I've never met a CMBC beer I haven't liked!

Meet More Brand Ambassadors!

Sometime last year, we introduced you to our Sampling Program. We hired a bunch of Brand Ambassadors — smart, friendly folks who descend upon your local bottle shop or liquor store, set up a brightly-colored table and display, and entreat upon you to try our beers.

Yeah. It’s a good gig.

In fact, things have been going so well that we’ve had to add a few more Brand Ambassadors. We’ve opened up the Reading/Lehigh Valley, and we’ve needed a few on hand to help us pick up the slack in our existing territories.

“I am so fortunate to have been able to add these four to our slew of Brand Ambassadors recently, totaling 11 team members,” says Sales Assistant Jenna Rae Rohana, who heads the program. “They all have a serious passion for craft beer and extensive knowledge of the industry. Mary D, Michelle, Casie, and Walt are all extremely reliable and great team players, which aligns very well with our CMBC family vibes here. I have received nothing short of positive feedback on their performances at samplings from fellow CMBC sales managers, store owners, and managers, as well as happy beer drinkers. I am thrilled to have these four on my team. Keep up the good work!”

Meet your new Brand Ambassadors!

“Everyone’s super nice. Really welcoming. It’s a fun place to work.”

Welcome Andrea!

If there’s ever been anyone in the world who has needed an assistant, it’s Ryan Krill. 

The man has a lot on his plate. From travel arrangements for speaking engagements throughout the country to keeping a schedule that can go horribly awry by 9:05am to sitting in on meetings about expansions and growth and financial matters, there’s a lot that could potentially fall through the cracks.

Late last year, he bit the bullet and hired Andrea Sharp.

“Andrea is really smart, has a great sense of humor and has strong critical thinking skills,” Ryan says. “Her training and experience with finance and accounting is really helpful in keeping all the details of Cape Beverage and Cape May Brewing Company straight. Her title is Administrative Assistant but it’s so much more than that: she’s more like my right-hand woman in making shit happen.” 

Welcome Andrea!

Meet Cape Bev’s New Operations Manager… Justin Vitti!

He’s more than magic. He’s more than a mustache and a smile.

He’s a guy with a singular past that prepared him to be the new Operations Manager of Cape Beverage, with an accrued business acumen that only a background in sales, homebrewing, bartending, and distribution could possibly create.

That’s Justin Vitti: Pearl Jam fan, walking encyclopedic compilation of Harry Potter spells, and able to shove a nail through his septum.

Straight to the Pint has never formally introduced him to our readers. He’s sort of always existed as this force at Cape May Brewing Co., doing card tricks and ensuring that our beer gets to its final destination: your stomach.

Now, on the precipice of his new job, we wanted to get it down. Get it all down. Sit back, because Justin is known to tell stories. 

And we’re starting at the very beginning.

"I like that it’s a small business. It’s something cool from my hometown that’s grown into an awesome business.”

Meet Andrew!

Andrew Monastra has been our draft technician for almost four years, traveling around South Jersey, ensuring that the lines that serve our beer are squeaky clean, giving you the freshest and best-tasting beer possible.

“Andrew has a no-nonsense attitude that is very reflective in his work,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “When he first interviewed for the driver position, we left the room with a common thought ‘this guy just wants to get his job done’. Since then, he has grown and learned everything about being a well-rounded technician in the industry, including a full 3-day seminar covering all the ins-and-outs that even myself or Hank didn’t know to teach him. He is a crucial part of the Distribution Team’s spirit and morale.”

Meet Andrew!

I’m thankful for… my coworkers because they keep this business what it is supposed to be: fun.

What We’re Thankful For….

It’s the time of year to sit back and reflect on the things in our lives for which we are the most thankful. Whether it’s our families and loved ones, our pets, or access to great beer from CMBC, we’ve all got a lot to be thankful for.

We polled the Brew Crew to find out what they’ll be thankful for this holiday, but one thing we’re all thankful for around here is you. We all know that it’s our unbelievable fans that keep us going, and we’re eternally grateful for your love and support.

White Caps and Sports

Hey, sports fans!

It’s truly the sports lover’s favorite time of year. While baseball is only just in the past, hockey and basketball are just getting warmed up, but football seems to dominate every conversation everywhere.

No matter what team you root for, whatever sport you’re watching, White Caps is a great brew for cheering along. Brewed with hefty portions of wheat and oats, White Caps has a soft mouthfeel, a pillowy head, and a robust body. Featuring Mosaic and Citra hops, this effervescent Double IPA explodes with notes of papaya, mango, stone fruits, and citrus. 

We caught up with the Brew Crew to find out what sports they love to watch with a cold White Caps in hand.

"Everybody’s very, very friendly. And everybody seems to love working here.”

Welcome Noelle!

Our newest Brewtique Associate, Noelle Smuz, has been dying to work here forever, and, now that she does, she’s been doing a great job.

“After hearing of Noelle’s persistence at wanting to be a part of CMBC,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello, “I knew we would be able to find a fit in the Brewtique. I can’t wait to see what the future here holds for her.”

Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith loves having her here, as well.

“She comes in every day with a positive attitude and immediately asks what she can help with,” she says. “She is very friendly with the customers and her teammates which makes her really fun to work with!”

Welcome Noelle!

"They’re the best. We really do work well together, we’re a good team, and we have a lot of fun."

Our Events Team

Odds are, you’ve met these women. You’ve seen them out at our Tap Takeovers or at beer dinners or at any number of beer festivals throughout the region.

They’re our intrepid Events Team: Jenna Tesauro and Lauren Frech have been with us for a little over three years, and, since we’ve added a new member of the team — not coincidentally Jenna’s twin sister Danielle –, we figured it was time to introduce our fans to these wonderful ladies.

“I’d be lost without them,” says Events Coordinator Randi Friel. “They’re incredibly hard workers. They’re out in the field, rain or shine, running awesome tap takeovers and beer festivals, answering questions from new fans — all while getting our beer to flow through our sometimes-temperamental jockey boxes. They are perfect.”

And Randi’s not just trying to make them sound good — they really are amazing. However, if you’ve been to an event that features our beer, you probably already know that.

Meet your Events Team!
