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!

Ten Perspectives on Anniversary Ale 10

Each year, we do something a bit different for our anniversary ales. For Anniversary Ale 7.0, we used seven different hop varieties, and it was dry-hopped with seven pounds-per-barrel, featured an SRM of 7, and an ABV of 7.7%. Anniversary Ale 9 last year was 9.0% ABV, and was crafted at nine pounds-per-barrel of hops. Do you see the pattern here?

While Anniversary Ale 10 bucks the tradition a bit (can you even imagine trying to wrangle a 10% ABV brew with TEN different hops in it??), we decided to pay homage to our number system by reaching out to ten crew members to talk about this brew. From each of our main departments, admin/marketing, sales/distribution, the Tasting Room, and production, we spoke with five OG crew members and five of the newest crew members to get their thoughts on our new double IPA, and what Cape May Brewery’s 10th anniversary means to each of them!

Read on to learn a bit more about some of your favorite crew members, and a sneak peek at some of our new crew members ahead of their blog features!

Spotlight On Wheelhouse!

Our friends right across the bay at Wheelhouse in Lewes, Delaware have been on our list to visit for some time now, and we were so thrilled to get the chance to take a midweek ferry ride over to join them for lunch.

Wheelhouse is part of the Zogg’s Raw Bar ‘n’ Grill Restaurant Group, which also operates Zogg’s and Bushels, two fellow local Delaware restaurants, each with their own beachy, southern vibe. 

Mike Dangerfield, the Director of Operations for the restaurant group, set us up with General Manager Keely Weber, who’s the GM for both Wheelhouse and Bushels. Sales Manager Scott McIntyre and Social Media & Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg joined us for the adventure. We rode the ferry over with Courtney, and Scott drove out from Philly to meet us.

We checked out a few of the dishes they have to offer, as well as what you can expect when you visit. I mean, just LOOK at these photos!

Philly Beer Week 2021 – An Essential Return

Philly Beer Week is a ten-day festival and celebration of beer and recognition of Philadelphia as America’s Best Beer-Drinking City. We’re pretty lucky to live nearby, and we’re fortunate to be included among the incredible brews you can find inside and outside of the city limits year-round. 

After the hiatus last year, we’re thrilled to be back, as next week marks the start of Philly Beer Week 2021, from Friday, June 4th through Sunday, June 13th. 

Read on to find out how to plan your post-Memorial Day beer ventures in Philly!

Spotlight on the Deauville Inn!

This week, we visited our friends at the Deauville Inn to check out their updated space and get some insight into what folks have to look forward to this summer.

The Deauville offers multiple in-house venues to enjoy food and drinks, and their space is the place to be this summer. 

We spoke with Adam Modder, Vice President of Operations, Chuck Thompson, Assistant General Manager, and Paul Shust, the media director, who gave us more information on how the Deauville has adapted and what’s to come!

On the Way to Cape May: Our New Brew Series!

So, this summer is pretty special for us. It’s the first summer after particularly brutal pandemic restrictions, and also the summer of 2021, which is our 10th year anniversary!

We’ve got some awesome things planned for our unofficial summer kick-off Memorial Day weekend, including a very special beer series release, new merch, and of course, a party complete with decorations and live music. We’ll have more to share with you soon, but until then, here’s a sneak peek into what went into our upcoming new series: On the Way to Cape May, celebrating 10 years with 10 new brew releases!

This week, we caught up with Backdoor Release crew Production Planning & Specialty Brewing Manager Brian Hink, Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello, and Social Media & Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg in the Brewtanical Garden to learn more.

“American craft brewing has bucked tradition and forced brewers around the world to be more open-minded about ingredients and flavors and overall reconsider how they’ve always made beer."

American Craft Beer Week: Craft with Brandon Greenwood

It’s American Craft Beer Week all this week, and to celebrate, we caught up with Vice President of Brewing Operations and craft beer OG Brandon Greenwood for a look at his experience in the industry. We’ve got a lot of ‘90s babies on the team, and uh, Brandon’s been killing the game since before many of us were born. 

You’re not going to want to miss this!

We make every day Earth Day!

Earth Day!

We hope not to offend Mars or Jupiter — or, sadly, Pluto (pour one out for our homie…) — but next Thursday is Earth Day.

And we should celebrate! We only get one planet — it’s up to us to steward this blue marble, rocketing alone through the infinite vastness of space. It’s our home for a cosmically short amount of time: we’re here and gone in the blink of an eye, but Mother Earth is eternal. (We hope.)

Leave things better than we found them, that’s our mission on this planet. There is much work to be done: the world only spins forward. All we can do at this point is make an attempt to clean up the messes of previous generations while ensuring that future generations can enjoy themselves here as we have.

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

So, in honor of this singular day, we have ten reasons you should make Cape May Brewing Company a part of your celebrations.
