The Official Blog of Cape May Brewing Company


This year, the Great American Beer Festival is coming to a brewery near you! 

It’s been a rough year for everyone, but the Brewers Association wanted to keep the spirit of GABF alive, so they’re moving it from Denver to breweries nationwide. Each participating brewery is getting in on the fun with their own special giveaway.

So, at Cape May Brewing Company, your GABF passport will entitle you to our brand, spankin’ new Tap That Glass. 

This isn’t your everyday glass, folks….

What an honor!

Governor Murphy Has a Beer

The Governor of New Jersey, Phil Murphy, was in Cape May this week for the ribbon cutting of the new Harriet Tubman Museum, and he asked if he could drop by. How could we say no to that?

The governor toured the production facility, the Tasting Room, and sat and had an Oktoberfest in the Beer Garden, while discussing business with Ryan and Mop Man.

Check it out!

The festival lasts two full weeks and they go through about two million gallons of beer.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Oktoberfest

It’s one of the oldest — and most appropriated — beer traditions, and for good reason. Oktoberfest has been celebrated in Munich for over 200 years, and is the standard to which all other beer festivals are measured.

And, while this year’s Oktoberfests may be on hold for the time being, there’s no reason you can’t crack open a cold can of Oktoberfest and enjoy yourself. 

While you do, check out these facts on this beer festival to end all beer festivals.

The Brew Crew and Their Furbabies

If there’s one thing that we love at Cape May Brewing Company… well… that would be beer.

But if there’s another thing that we love at Cape May Brewing Company, it’s our pets. 

International Dog Day was this past Wednesday and International Cat Day was earlier in the month. While we’re glad to see days dedicated to celebrating our pets, we’re not entirely sure why we need a whole day. After all, they already run our lives.

Nonetheless, we’ve got a huge number of animal lovers in the Brew Crew, so we decided to find out which of our beers their pets would be. And we asked them to submit a picture. One picture. Many found it difficult to choose only one.

Get ready to boop some snoots!

Spotlight On… Grain on the Rocks!

Just across the Delaware Bay from Cape May, at the sister terminal of our beloved Cape May-Lewes Ferry, you’ll find a new eatery, open for only a few months: Grain on the Rocks. 

Part gastropub, part neighborhood bar, part amazing views, and all heart and soul, Grain on the Rocks isn’t only a respite for the weary traveler, it’s a destination in and of itself.

As we expand our distribution in Delaware and gleefully welcome back our Spotlight On series after a long, COVID-fuelled hiatus, we were delighted to celebrate both of those events with a visit to this soon-to-be favorite of beer lovers everywhere.

“Oh sure, it's easy to pick holes in a story about a weather system that makes it possible for sharks to fly and take to the streets, but that's the whole point of movies like this: fabulous in-home commentary.”

Shark Week

It’s the most terrifying week of the year — well… aside from literally every other week of 2020 — Shark Week!

One of the most anticipated weeks of the summer, over the past few years, it’s grown from a week of informational programming on the Discovery Channel to a celebratory week regaling the truth and the myth of sharks, shark attacks, and shark lore.

On an episode of 30 Rock, Tracy Jordan compelled us all to “live every week like it’s Shark Week,” and at Cape May Brewing Company, we will heed his advice with an event celebrating everything we love about Shark Week!

Banner Planes

It’s not a day at the Jersey Shore without a few traditions. You’ll need a cone from Kohr Brothers — that’s a given. We could debate all day about who’s got the best pizza, but you know you’re getting a gigantic, oversized slice from somewhere. At some point, a gull will steal some food from a soon-to-be-crying child.

And you will see a banner plane.

Several times throughout the day, a small, single-engine plane will fly overhead, trailing behind it a banner advertising… well… just about everything.

Including Cape May Brewing Company.

If you’ve seen our banners, you already know that they definitely create some conversation. And now, you could win a prize if you post a shot to your Instagram!

Christmas in July!

While the thermometer might look as if it were placed somewhere near the sunward side of Mercury, the calendar is telling us that it’s July 25th. 

It’s the perfect time to think cold thoughts. Visions of snow. Dreams of cold air across your face. 

When the temperatures ramp up, it’s time for Christmas in July!

Ev’ry Rosé Has Its Thorn

We look for a few things when we collaborate with other breweries, but, mostly, we want to find someone who embodies as many of our Core Values as possible.

When we collaborated with DC Brau two years ago, we found them to be about as similar to us as could be, in as many ways as possible.

But, the most obvious is that they’re big proponents of our Core Value #7: “Have fun!”

That is nowhere more evident than in our recent video, “Every Rosé Has its Thorn”. DC Brau CEO Brandon Skall’s air-drum skills are matched only by Ryan’s skateboarding, and each team — here in Cape May and over in DC — had a great time making this video.

If you missed it, check it out!

And don’t miss out on Rosé du Gosé — available today, only at the brewery!

We are a CRAFT brewery, after all....

Growler Craft Ideas

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been extremely lucky to have been able to remain open. We’ve been brewing and canning and, now, kegging as fast as our brewers can brew.

And, we love those of you who have supported us during the pandemic. 

But… there’s been one aspect of our current business model that — we know — not everyone loves, and that’s been the fact that we can only fill new growlers.

We know, it’s a pain; however, it’s the only way we can ensure that our big, strong, Austrian growler filler, Hans, doesn’t catch the coronavirus. You see, Hans starts his fill with a shot of carbon dioxide, potentially blowing any virus particles in a dirty growler all around the chamber. Then he fills from the bottom, sticking a long probe into the growler, possibly mixing all those stirred-up particles with the beer.

That’s not a great way to guard against the spread of COVID-19. We can do better. 

So, we’ve been including a new growler with each growler fill, selling them to you at our cost.

But… if you’re a growler aficionado, you’ve probably got a growing pile of growlers at this point, and you’re wondering what you should do with them.

This week, we’ve got five craft ideas for those old growlers. We don’t have full plans for each of them, but, hopefully, this blog will get your gears turning.
