Home Delivery to Cape May and Atlantic Counties!

Every so often, there are bright moments in a crisis. Like Mr. Rogers told us, “Look for the helpers.” In times of uncertainty, they’re always there.

Now, we’re certainly not comparing ourselves to the men and women on the front lines of the COVID-19 mess: the doctors, the nurses, the EMTs — they’re going to have an extraordinarily rough few weeks.

However, this time, we can count the ABC — the New Jersey Division of Alcohol Beverage Control — as one of the helpers. In these extraordinary times, they’ve decided to allow breweries to begin home deliveries!

"Cape May has an awesome variety."

Delaware? Delaware!

It’s difficult to find words to express how excited we are that you’ll soon be able to find CMBC brews throughout Delaware! It’s a tiny state but huge when it comes to craft beer — and our fans across the Bay have been chomping at the bit for us to make that jump across the Delaware.

We talked to our Brand Manager at Standard Distributing, Ted Stewart, to get the lowdown on the Delaware craft beer scene. Ted’s been with Standard for fourteen years, beginning as a member of the sales force before his current position as Craft Beer Manager. 

Erin Gale, our Regional Sales Manager for Pennsylvania and Delaware, had some awesome thoughts on the Delaware expansion, as well. Having covered Pennsylvania for us for the past two years, she’s constantly running into Delawareans asking when they’ll be able to get our beer in the First State. Your wait is over, Delaware! 

Check out our conversation below!

"Moving from a 2,000-square-foot cooler to an 8,500-square-foot warehouse will allow Cape Beverage the flexibility to add more brands that will complement our current lineup.”

Cape Beverage is Moving!

Cape Beverage is a company on the move!

As Cape May Brewing Company grows and we take on more brands at our sister company, Cape Beverage, the space limitations here at the Cape May Airport have become a little tight. So, beginning in April, Cape Beverage is moving on to a bigger space in Egg Harbor Township!

But no worries! While you won’t be able to get any beers in Egg Harbor Township, you’ll still be able to get all of Cape May Brewing Company’s tasty brews at the Cape May Airport!

“Craft beer drinkers in Delaware are excited!”

Delaware, Here We Come!

July 4, 1776: America was invented.

September 21, 1950: Bill Murray is born.

July 4, 2011: Cape May Brewing Company is founded.

March 2, 2020: Cape May Brewing Company begins distributing in Delaware!

"I am a builder at heart and I look forward to getting back into something that feeds my need to design, engineer, and build."

Farewell, Hank….

Everyone’s next chapter remains to be written.

At the State of the Brewery in December, Hank reminded us of that fact, kicking things off with a short and surprising statement: he had decided to leave Cape May Brewing Company.

The announcement was met with universal surprise and quite a few tears, but also with the knowledge that Hank has been absolutely instrumental in getting us to where we are today. Without his wisdom and guidance — and, most importantly, his encyclopedic knowledge of both beer and mechanics — we might never have seen the growth we’ve achieved to this point.

However, while there’s a certain amount of sadness, at Cape May Brewing Company, we know that whatever the next chapter holds for Hank — whether it’s doing HVAC on an island in the Caribbean or a fry cook on Venus — he’ll be a tremendous success, and we wish him nothing but happiness.

Below, you can read what he had to say in his own words.

“I just want to kick ass.”

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.

We’re thoroughly excited about 2020, and we hope you are, too!

2020 Release Calendar

As we barrel into 2020, we’re looking forward to a great year. 2019 was an awesome time, and we’re planning to have an even better year in 2020.

We’re proud to publicize our production schedule for 2020. Each year, we plan for the next; however, for the first time, we’ve got a lovely graphic to keep us on track. 

You might say that Cape May Brewing Company is a seasonal brewery. We’re strong throughout the year, but things really explode in the summer: production skyrockets, visitorship in the Tasting Room is through the roof, and we’re all working our hardest to ensure that our beer is at every bar, every wedding, every barbecue, and every event throughout New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania. 

Next year’s release schedule is designed to maximize upon that fact. As such, there will be some changes to what we’ve done in the past. We’re excited about some of the additions; we’ll miss some of the ones we’re retiring, but this is all being done to ensure that we’re at our best when it counts the most.

It should be noted that this is subject to change — we’re definitely going to do our best to keep to this schedule, but we are at the mercy of can suppliers and governmental agencies and little microorganisms that are really the ones who decide when we can release a certain beer.

Check out the changes below!

“We’re looking for Lacto and Pedio.”

More Toys!

We’ve definitely got some fun toys at the brewery.

That new canning line is awesome — it makes canning beer so much faster. Our centrifuge is pretty cool, too — it gets the beer cleaned up, looking pretty, and tasting fantastic. Innovation Director Brian Hink gets to have a lot of fun with our pilot system, developing tasty new beers for you fine folks, and our beer engine opened up a whole world of new beers to try in our Tasting Room. Even Craig and Polly probably have a lot of fun on our forklifts.

(Okay, that last one’s a lie. Work safe, work smart.)

Yet, we’ve got a tiny, little room off to the side of the brewery floor that you might not notice if someone doesn’t point it out to you, and the most fun — and expensive — toys in the brewery are in there.

That’s our lab. And Lab Manager Lauren Appleman spends her days cooped up in there, playing with those awesome toys.

And she got a shiny, new toy over the past few months — okay, it’s not shiny — but her new Gene-Up from bioMérieux is making it easier for her to ensure that each can that leaves our warehouse is of the highest quality.
