BikeMS: City to Shore — Brian Hink

Not only is he our Innovation Director, but this is Brian Hink’s seventh year riding for BikeMS!

When he was younger, he used to watch the riders going by his house in Ocean City. Eventually, he couldn’t stand being left out of the action, so he and his brother signed up for the ride. He’s missed a few years, but he’s a stalwart on our team.

Brian hasn’t yet hit his fundraising goal, but you can help! Click here to donate to Brian.

Find out why he loves to ride in the video below!

Beer for Breakfast

There are things in this world that, once you’ve graduated from college and entered the harsh, cruel world, you’re simply not supposed to do anymore.

Pull an all-nighter, for example.

Break into the astronomy observatory at three in the morning to use their printer to publish an underground magazine, for another. (Just us?)

Or have beer for breakfast.

Well, we’re here to stymie that last one. We’re here to tell you that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having beer for breakfast. After all, it’s the most important meal of the day. In fact, a beer like Crushin’ It is practically screaming to be sipped during your first meal of the day.

So, we got together with our CIA-trained Culinary Ops & Soda Guru JP Thomas to build the perfect breakfast using our beers in the recipes and pairing each dish with another delicious CMBC brew.

Or just pair them with Crushin’ It. You don’t really need to look much further, particularly for breakfast.

If you’re hosting a breakfast party, we’ve got a whole menu for you. Or, if you’ve got an end-of-summer staycation coming up, we’ve got nearly an entire week of breakfasts waiting to be devoured.

Spotlight On: The Sea Shell!

Long Beach Island is aptly named. 

Like many of the barrier islands, it’s only wide enough to accommodate a few blocks of streets, and its main drag is dotted with the typical beach shops, bars, restaurants, and the original Ron Jon Surf Shop. For eighteen miles.

It’s long.

Yet, the Island’s surf kitsch and tourist haven lay in defense of some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches you’re likely to find on the East Coast.

So, on a day with clouds in the sky that looked as if they had been painted by Bob Ross while in one of his more melancholy moods, we made the trek to the southernmost reaches of the island, in search of the Island’s premier oceanfront resort: The Sea Shell.

BikeMS: City to Shore — Michael

Some of the best fundraisers on our BikeMS: City to Shore team began exactly as you are — a fan of CMBC.

Three-year veteran Michael Malinowski liked the cut of our jib — or, more accurately, the cut of our bike jersey — and decided to sign on as a rider. Since then, he’s raised over $20,000 to help fund Multiple Sclerosis research.

Now, we’re not saying that every single one of our fans need to raise $20,000… but wouldn’t that be awesome?!? The minimum you’d need to raise is $300 — a number that’s totally doable. You probably have that much in your couch cushions. 

Either way, if you’re thinking about signing up for the team, check out the video below to see why Michael does it. Then, head over to our BikeMS: City to Shore page and sign up for the team!

Independence Day Traditions

The Brewers Association has declared July 3rd to be “National Independent Beer Run Day” — you gotta go out to grab your independent beer before you can celebrate your independent nation.

Luckily, if you need to make a beer run, our Tasting Room and Brewtique will be open from 11am to 9pm for you to grab your favorite independent beer.

We caught up with the Brew Crew to see what they’d be sampling this year. Check it out!

It’s shaping up to be a great day!

Cheers to Eight Years!

Can you believe it’s been eight years?!?

We know we can’t. Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man had no idea that when they brewed up their first batch of Cape May IPA, kegged it up, and sold it to Cabanas that, eight years later, they’d be employing over 90 people in 33,000 square feet at the Cape May Airport.

So… that deserves a party, right?

To celebrate the milestone, on June 28th, we’ve got two parties planned!

If your kid asks for your support to start a brewery: go with it.

Mop Man’s Advice

We’ve got a number of new fathers around the brewery:

Ryan and his wife Kaysi had Radley Theodore back in February.

Justin and his wife Mariel had Piper Anne three weeks ago, and, while Justin’s not exactly a new father, the last time he went through all of this was ten years ago.

And Craig and his wife Amanda should have had a baby last weekend, but, as we write this, we’re still on Baby Watch. (Let’s hope she goes on Father’s Day!)

So, this Father’s Day, we wanted to catch up with the brewery’s father — the Mop Man himself, Bob Krill — to see what advice he had for these new proud papas.

Bring him down for the best reason of all: quality time with dad.

Treat Dad for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means that it’s time to show dad what he means to you. After all, he’s the guy who taught you how to drive, how to throw a baseball, and even turned a blind eye when you raided your first beer from his fridge.

Now you’re old enough to not have to steal your brews — and you’ve got better taste in beer now, anyway.

Father’s Day is the perfect time to treat dad to a trip to the brewery, where you can bond over a beer that’s been Crafted on the Cape.

And we’ve got the top ten reasons why you should make haste to 1288 Hornet Road in the Cape May Airport.

“Everyone from the Rabbit Hill group is just really awesome.”

Bounding through Rabbit Hill

This industry has the tendency to lead you places you never thought you’d be. Sour beer festivals in Indiana, for example. Smelling hops in Oregon. Tourism conferences in Boise.

They’ve all been amazing experiences for the attendees — we learn a lot at conferences, we make a ton of important connections at beer festivals, and selecting hops is all part of the business.

However, if you’d asked us ten years ago if we thought we’d ever be on the back of a tractor, sitting on a bale of hay, getting a tour through a gigantic grain farm in Shiloh, NJ, we’d have slapped the beer out of your hand.

Yet, it’s the unknown places in our backyard that can be the most rewarding. That’s why, when Hillary and the folks from Rabbit Hill Farms hit us up to attend a thank-you picnic on the farm, we didn’t hesitate to say yes.
