Top Ten Reasons to Visit the Brewtanical Garden

These days, it’s difficult to find a place to hang out with friends over a cold beer. Seating everywhere is limited, it can be a little intimidating, and some places threw a few tables in a back alley and called it “outdoor seating.”

Thankfully, there’s plenty of space down here at the Cape May Airport. We’re lucky enough to have been able to convert some of it into our new Brewtanical Garden!

But, maybe you haven’t had the time to check it out. You’ve probably been busy, working on your new quarantine hobbies, working in your quarantine garden, writing that quarantine novel you’ve finally found the time to write.

Take a break! You totally deserve it.

And we’ve got the top ten reasons for you to try our new Brewtanical Garden!

Visiting the Brewery

There have been a number of changes at Cape May Brewing Company, from changes due to COVID-19 to opening new spaces and creating new experiences.

We want our visitors to have all of the information they need in one place, so we’ve compiled it below. If you have any unanswered questions, please see our FAQ page.

More Merch!

Let’s go shopping!

Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith has been hard at work, designing a bunch of great new merchandise for this summer, and we’ve received a bunch more in stock!

So, if you haven’t spent all of your money on completely useless crap that you don’t need — like that Bob Ross Chia Pet (was that a happy accident?) — check out our awesome new tees and glassware!

BikeMS

With this week’s release of City to Shore, it’s definitely time to start ramping up our fundraising for the annual BikeMS: City to Shore ride!

Usually held mid-September, this year’s ride had been moved to the first weekend in October before COVID hit. Now, they’re still planning to hold the event, but it may look a little different.

COVID or no COVID, we’re still committed to raising as much money as possible for Multiple Sclerosis research.

So… here are five reasons you should help!

New Merch!

If you’re anything like us, as you’ve been quarantined over the past few months, you’ve been doing a lot of online ordering.

Like… a lot.

But… you definitely needed that Nicolas Cage pillow you just picked up at Amazon. Everyone needs a little change of scene, and you’ve always been such a fan of Nic Cage’s work. It’s an investment, really.

Thankfully, we recently received a bunch of new merch at the Brewtique — none of which features the star of the National Treasure films.

New glassware! New t-shirts! New designs!

New merch! New you!

Check it out!

The Brewtanical Garden

Show of hands: Who remembers our Beer Garden back when it extended about five feet from the back of the building?

It was cute. It was intimate. It did the job back when we were a much smaller brewery. Believe it or not, that was only four short years ago. We’ve since expanded it three times, turning it into the gorgeous expanse of brick and wood that you see today.

Yet, it’s still pretty insular. You’re outside… but it still kinda feels like you’re inside. You’re open to the sky — and there certainly isn’t any air conditioning –, but it can feel like an extension of the Tasting Room. 

With the increased need for social distancing and outdoor seating, our fans deserve one more way to experience Cape May Brewing Company.

“They’ve always had the Tasting Room,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello, “we fixed up the Barrel Room and made it into a different experience. While we’re being a little hamstrung by COVID, we can’t really use those spaces, so our fans have had no choice but to sit in the Beer Garden.”

And we’re all about your right to choose at Cape May Brewing Company — after all, have you seen our tap list?!?

“Let’s give our fans a different experience,” he said.

So, we’ve changed gears a bit, bringing you an entirely new way to experience Cape May Brewing Company: The Brewtanical Garden.

Reopening Phases

We’re thoroughly excited about opening our doors to our fans! As far as we’re concerned, Monday can’t come soon enough, and we can’t wait to welcome you back.

Last week, we gave you what we hope was a pretty detailed picture as to what to expect when we open on Monday. However, we don’t intend to keep things that way forever.  

We intend to reopen in three phases, each of which returns some aspect of your visitor experience to some semblance of normal.

Fun With Lab Equipment!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Lab Manager Lauren Appleman has the best toys in the brewery, and she recently added two new ones — the Anton Paar DMA 4500 with Alcolyzer and the Anton Paar CBox — to her arsenal of sciency weapons.

We got together with her over Google Meet this week to talk about them.

“You’re kinda forcing me right now to think about the science of all this stuff,” she says, “and in the regular day-to-day, I’m like, ‘I don’t know how it works. It just does.’”

She’s being a little self-deprecating — she definitely knows how it works, she simply never has to think about it.

So, what do they do? Basically, they make better beer.

We hope to see you soon and hope that you and your loved ones have remained safe and healthy throughout this crisis.

What to Expect When We Reopen

It appears that the end is in sight, friends.

We’ll be opening with limited capacity and following recommendations provided by the CDC on June 15th!

So, to get you excited about what’s to come, we’ve put together an image of what things will look like when we reopen.

Happy Birthday, Italian Stallion!

Last year, we inaugurated our new canning line: a big, shiny new line direct from Italy, we dubbed it at the time “The Italian Stallion.”

Now that Sly has a year under his belt, we refer to the line a little more formally as the “CFT”.

And, as expected, it’s been a VAST improvement over our previous line, meaning that we’ve had the capacity to can up the demand we’ve seen for our summer lineup of beers, including The Bog, Tan Limes, Crushin’ It, and The Grove.
