"We’ve been looking for a way to be more involved with the Festival, and, with the opening of the Brewtanical Garden, this year seemed like the perfect opportunity to host a few acts in our own backyard."

Exit Zero Jazz Festival, COVID Edition

There have been some good things to come from this pandemic, believe it or not.

Early in the pandemic, we were able to pivot to online beer sales, and that’s been a total game-changer. We threw our planned schedule out the window in order to bring you more canned offerings as you were stuck at home during the lockdown. We told you about the changes to this year’s Great American Beer Festival, and we’re thrilled about them. 

Across the board, from retail to festivals, everyone’s been forced to think outside of the box, innovating out of necessity, transitioning from how-it’s-done to how-it-could-be.

And many of those changes are pretty awesome. While there’s a lot to dislike about what’s going on out in the world, there are small glimmers of hope and normalcy to be found, if you look hard enough.

One of those hope-glimmers is the Exit Zero Jazz Festival. For years, the festival has descended upon Cape May each spring and fall, bringing the best in jazz, bebop, funk, zydeco, samba, and all kinds of music, sure to get you up and dancing.

And, this year, you’ll be able to enjoy some of that great music in Cape May Brewing Company’s Brewtanical Garden!

“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!

Rosé du Gosé Pics

It’s rare that we’ll devote an entire blog to a photoshoot, but it’s rare that the sunset, the suds, and the sea come together in a perfect moment. 

Our Social Media and Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg really outdid herself this time. While she always provides great photos, the set she took at sunset by the Bay of Rosé du Gosé are in a class by themselves.

With a beautiful day and an absolutely stunning sunset, if these pictures don’t make you want to plan a trip to Cape May and drink all of the Rosé du Gosé in existence, we can’t help you.

Check ‘em out!

A few rules, a few new procedures, and we should be able to ensure that everyone has a happy and healthy Memorial Day weekend, filled with as much Crushin’ It as you can responsibly handle.

Memorial Day at CMBC

We miss our fans so much: our Tasting Room is usually hoppin’ by this point in May. This year, it’s a sad, desolate, lonely place. Beertender Jake Hauser will sometimes wander in aimlessly, staring longingly at the bar, sighing deeply, only to shuffle out several minutes later with the hangdoggedest of hangdog looks on his masked face.

And we know you feel the same way. This quarantine is affecting everyone hard — we’re all struggling at this point. But, keep in mind that we’re all in the same boat. 

The Tasting Room and Beer Garden won’t be open for Memorial Day weekend in their usual sense, but we’ve still got your back. We know this is a big weekend, and you’ll need to get your stock of your favorite CMBC brews.

We miss you, too!

Some of Those Tasting Room Feelings….

Remember the good ol’ days — back in early March — when you could come down to the Tasting Room, have a few beers, and hang out with friends? 

Good times, they were. Good times.

We know we’re missing the awesome times spent in the Tasting Room, and we’re guessing that you are, too. Grabbing some of our brews online for curbside pickup or delivery helps, but we know that it’s a far — though thoroughly appreciated — cry from how things were.

It would be terrific if you could recreate the feeling of our Tasting Room in your very own home. Luckily, we’ve got a few ways for you to feel a little bit closer to one of your favorite places while maintaining your social distancing practices.

Check out these fun ways to attempt to recreate that Tasting Room feeling at home!

"Beer can be what washes down the lovely dinner you made with your harvest or what you share with your special someone in the shade of the tree you planted.”

Make Your Garden Grow

Spring is springing all over the place these days, and, as many of us are cooped up inside our houses, it’s the perfect time to get outside and start working on those gardens. 

Since many of us don’t have much else going on right now — and Easter dinners around the area are more-or-less canceled –, we figured this would be a great time to pair some of our beers with their perfect horticultural matches.

And, since the staff at Straight to the Pint knows less about gardening than they do about medieval French poetry, we contacted Kathy Salisbury: a real, live horticulturist, Director of the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University, consultant at Katsura Horticultural, and lover of all things beer to help find not only the perfect plants for our beers, but also ones that will thrive in the climate throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.

Awesome Accounts

As the world struggles to redefine normalcy, industries throughout the country have found ways of innovating to remain relevant. A few weeks ago, we told you how brewers and the various associations that support us have found ways of doing exactly that. 

However, the COVID crisis has hit restaurants and bars particularly hard, with many of them throughout the area closing their doors, perhaps for good. The servers and bartenders there have suddenly found themselves out of a job, and it may be years before the industry truly recovers. 

Luckily, a few of them have found ways of restructuring their businesses in an attempt to keep their doors open and keep as many folks as possible working and productive.

This week, we want to send a shout out to a few of those bars and restaurants that have found new ways to keep their customers pleased and happy. While this list is by no means exhaustive, we hope that, if you’re near these places, that you give them your patronage during this difficult time.

Home Delivery to Cape May and Atlantic Counties!

Every so often, there are bright moments in a crisis. Like Mr. Rogers told us, “Look for the helpers.” In times of uncertainty, they’re always there.

Now, we’re certainly not comparing ourselves to the men and women on the front lines of the COVID-19 mess: the doctors, the nurses, the EMTs — they’re going to have an extraordinarily rough few weeks.

However, this time, we can count the ABC — the New Jersey Division of Alcohol Beverage Control — as one of the helpers. In these extraordinary times, they’ve decided to allow breweries to begin home deliveries!
