Spotlight On… Morey’s Piers!

In 1996, Steve Izenour, an American architect, urbanist, and theorist, had some thoughts for the revitalization of Wildwood, a mere stone’s throw from the brewery. In a letter to Jack Morey, the second-generation owner of Morey’s Piers, he advised against attempting to become another poor, homogenized imitation of a Disney theme park.

“Rather, your strategy should be to make the most of what you have,” he wrote. “What Wildwood is, is one of the last really down and dirty, TACKY with a capital T, beach resorts. What you need to do is take Tacky to new heights.”

Now celebrating their fiftieth year of business, Jack Morey and his team have been concentrating their efforts over the past twenty-three years on doing exactly that: creating a destination of such refined Tackiness that not even Disney could beat them at their game.

And, to help celebrate, we brewed up a crisp, clean, and ridiculously approachable Kölsch-style ale, Wild Wooder, available at eateries throughout the Piers.

BikeMS: City to Shore — Steve & Kyle

We’re not saying that our BikeMS: City to Shore team is a bunch of goofballs, but… we’re not not saying that, either.

Don’t get us wrong, here: they’re awesome goofballs. They’re dedicated goofballs. But… yeah. They’re goofballs.

We love dedicated goofballs. And our BikeMS: City to Shore team is among the most dedicated goofballs you’re likely to find.

It takes some serious dedication to train for months. It takes some serious dedication to ride your bike for a hundred freakin’ miles. It takes some serious dedication to raise the amounts of money that these folks raise. 

We’re extraordinarily grateful for our dedicated goofballs.

We got together with our Team Captain Steve Briggs and team veteran Kyle Konopka to find out why they love riding for our BikeMS: City to Shore team.

Check out the video below! And, if you’d like to join our team, we’d love to have you! Click here!

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!

“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.

“There are a ton of great female brewers in the Philly area, and I’m looking forward to tasting some of the things they’ve done.”

Bold Women & Beer Festival

The Year of the Woman keeps getting better for women in the brewing industry, particularly at CMBC.

They dreamed up a killer beer in collaboration with the Pink Boots Society — a national organization of women in the beer industry — with Maybe She’s Brewed with It — a light and spritzy kettle sour with cherries and mangoes.

They got together and brewed it up on International Women’s Day back in March, with a brew day including Rabbit Hill’s Hillary Barile, Cape May County Chamber of Commerce President Vicki Clark, and Assemblywoman Carol Murphy.

Now, this weekend, some of the women of the brewery will celebrate women in brewing at the very first Bold Women & Beer Festival in Philly!

"As a rugby club, we are a family -- I often address my teammates as ‘brother’. It makes perfect sense to join our families to promote both the sport of rugby and the beers of CMBC.”

Cape May Brew Cup

Okay. Let’s recognize a universal truth.

Generally speaking — and this certainly doesn’t cover the entire population –, but, generally speaking…

…and we hope we’re not rocking your world, here, but…

Rugby players like beer.

There are probably a few players out there who don’t, and this may be the case of the squeaky wheel getting the grease — or, in this case, the Cape May Lager — but, as stereotypical as it may be, in our limited experience, it’s true.

Rugby players like beer.

We don’t blame them.

You may be thinking, “How many rugby players could there possibly be in South Jersey?” and that’s a good question.

The answer: not many. In fact, there are only two adult men’s teams playing in the southern eight counties: the South Jersey Devils based in Cherry Hill and the Jersey Shore Sharks based in Galloway.

These guys like beer enough to approach us about sponsoring their annual championship match, and, needless to say, we said yes.

Cheers to Fifty Years!

Wild Wooder

Have you been to Morey’s Piers in Wildwood? We’ll get sued if we call it the Happiest Place on Earth, so we’ll call it the Happiest Place Within Walking Distance of Cape May Brewing Company.

Because it is.

Three piers of amusement park rides, two water parks, hotels, dining establishments, and all of the fun you can possibly have in Wildwood.

And their April Fool’s prank this year was on point.

So, when the subject was broached of a collaboration to celebrate Morey’s fifty years in Wildwood, we wasted no time in banging out the details.

They like fun. We like fun.

This is a collaboration made in heaven.

“Despite the weather and changes, we had a great group of volunteers and successfully prevented 235 pounds of trash from entering the ocean!”

Twin Fin “Beach” Cleanup

Sometimes, it rains on your parade.

Such is the nature of parades, being outside and all. Unfortunately for parades, they’re large and require a street with spectators, otherwise it’s just a bunch of marching bands, floats, and beloved character balloons creating a cacophony in some school gym somewhere.

Sometimes, it rains on your beach cleanup.

Such is the nature of beach cleanups, being outside and all. Fortunately, if you’ve got a small group of committed citizens, you can make a beach cleanup happen anywhere — beach not included.

Maybe this blog should be a reminder for everyone to clean their air conditioners.

Sustainability at CMBC

A year and a half ago, Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man sat down and determined our Core Values. These are a set of principles — a code of conduct — things that we’d been doing, but it was smart of them to sit down and type them up in a Powerpoint presentation.

While everything from Be a Pro to Have Fun is important, we truly love to Be a Good Neighbor.

And that doesn’t simply mean that we should grab a burrito at the Taco Shop or carry candles from A Place on Earth in our Brewtique. We do, but we’re also charged with engaging our community near and far.

On Earth Day — and every day –, that includes being a steward to our planet. We’ve only got one, and we should leave it as we found it.

After all, it’s the only one with beer.

“Cape May Brewing Company has been a great friend to the Festival throughout the years.”

Bring on Jazz Fest!

EZJF_Banner

“Anyone who understands Jazz knows that you can’t understand it. It’s too complicated. That’s what’s so simple about it.”

Perhaps the single greatest Yogi Berra-ism of all time. The man had some wisdom. Like a chord that’s both major and minor, Jazz is complex and simple, both at the same time.

That’s why we like being the exclusive beer sponsor for the Exit Zero Jazz Festival April 12-14: it gives us a chance to be a part of something that’s both simple and complex, much like our beers.
