“Now, it’s almost like I have a normal nine to five schedule if I think of my job as sleeping. I go to sleep from 9 to 5, I wake up and have my evenings, and I go to work when people are going to bed."

Midnight Brews

It’s been a few weeks now, but there’s something different happening with our brewhouse at night.

Something we haven’t done before in the ten years we’ve been brewing: overnight shifts!

Yep, that’s right. As of last month, we’ve been on a 24-hour schedule, with folks in the brewhouse at all hours during the week. 

Although, we’re not complete savages. There are some folks who come in on the weekends, but our overnight crew works hard during the week so that they can have weekends off. 

Brewer Mike McGrath and Packaging Lead Sean McGuirl are the first two to ever work these overnight shifts, and are typically alone in the brewhouse for about five hours in the middle of the night, between the rest of the packaging team leaving and the morning crew coming in at the crack of dawn.

We get to check out some pretty cool things about what goes into our brewing process and clean up at the end of the night, and even some spooky-adjacent happenings.

The Big ONE-OH: Reminisce with Us!

Ten years is a big one. It’s a decade long, one of the first big markers measuring time, and, not to mention, a snazzy X in roman numerals. 

We might not be quite old enough to drink yet, but as far as we’re concerned, breweries mature way faster than people do, and we’re not the new kids on the block anymore!

There have been a number of changes at Cape May Brewing Company, from COVID-19 adaptations to opening new spaces and creating new experiences. Here is the latest information based on current New Jersey State guidelines!

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.

We’re Hiring!

Each spring, we come out with two things:

  1. Our awesome summer beers like Crushin’ It, Tan Limes, The Bog, and The Grove, and
  2. A laundry list of jobs that need to be filled as we head into our busy season.

And these jobs run the gamut! If you’re looking for something part-time to fill out your summer hours, we have plenty of those; however, if you’re looking for a career change to a rewarding, fast-paced job with excellent pay and benefits, working at a growing company, look no further!

“Cape May Brewing Company and Cape Beverage are workplaces where people matter,” says Director of People Operations Christine Bry. “Your ideas are valued, you are encouraged to ask questions, and you are celebrated for your hard work. The work may be physically tiring and mentally challenging, yet the benefits of sharing in the rewards with a team who cares about you are worth all you put in.”

Check out our open positions below!

Ch-ch-ch-changes… in the Tasting Room

If the past year has taught us anything at all, it’s that just about everything you’ve ever known is subject to change. Sometimes they’re good changes, sometimes not-so-much, but, either way, this pandemic has certainly kept everyone on their toes.

Take the experience of visiting the brewery: as more information regarding the pandemic has come to light and as the outlook has grown more optimistic, we’ve changed and modified the experience multiple times, from being closed completely to creating a take-out window to allowing for outdoor dining to expanding the Brewtique to opening the Brewtanical Garden, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

We’ve been rolling with the punches, and you guys have been right there, along for the ride. So, we wanted to clue you in to a number of changes that you may encounter on your next visit. We got together with Tasting Room Manager Jake Hauser and Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith to get all the deets.

Cellar Four

Over the past several months, we’ve been undertaking a relatively large expansion to our brewing facility. We had a massive cooler at production that, since we’ve opened Cape Beverage in Egg Harbor Township, we no longer really need.

So, it only makes sense to tear it down and make more space for brewing! And, over the past several months, we’ve been doing exactly that: repurposing that large, empty room as “Cellar 4”.

We caught up with Vice President of Brewing Operations Brandon Greenwood and Brewery Operations Manager James Fox to get the low-down on this upgrade.

Last Chance to Shop!

Santa is coming is THIS WEEK! (SANTA! I KNOW HIM!)

If you’re already done your holiday shopping, nice job! Give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it.

However, if you still have a few names to cross off your list, the Brewtique will be open on Christmas Eve from noon to 4pm for your shopping pleasure.

We rounded up with Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith to hear about some of her last-minute favorites. Check it out!

If you haven’t yet had the chance to stop down to the brewery this holiday season, you’re running out of time.

We’ve got the Brewtanical Garden beautifully decorated, and the Tasting Room and Beer Garden look amazing. We’ve got a killer tree this year, your favorite holiday tunes are pumping, and visiting Cape May Brewing Company is like walking into a winter wonderland.

There’s no way to be here without feeling part of the Christmas spirit. We have decked the halls. And you’ve only got one final weekend to drink it all in.

For the final weekend of the pre-Christmas shopping season — and the last weekend of our Food and Supply Drive (hint, hint) –, we want to make sure that you’ve got as many chances to give as possible and be part of our new Holiday Wall of Cheer.

And, it’s the last weekend for shopping before Christmas — stop by the Brewtique and stock up!

Four Ways to Shop This Holiday Season

We can still make 2020 a great year! We know it’s been a challenge to make 2020 memorable for something other than <gesticulates wildly at everything>, and that’s why it’s wonderful that the holidays take place at the end of the year — you get one final push to make it a great year.

So, this holiday season, we’ve got four great ways to shop for your favorite Cape May Brewing Company merchandise: in-store at the Brewtique, at the Exit Zero Festive Station, at the West End Garage, and, of course, online.

This week, we rounded up with Brewtique Manager Kaitlyn Smith to find out her favorite things about each venue.

A Well-Trained Staff

Note: Some images in this blog were taken prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At Cape May Brewing Company, we know that a knowledgeable, informed, and well-trained staff in the Tasting Room is as important to your experience as the beer itself.

That’s why our staff goes through two very important training programs: TIPS and Cicerone. 

We got together this week with Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello and Tasting Room Manager Jake Hauser to find out more about these two essential programs and how they affect your experience.
