Our tri-athletes!

Escape the Cape weekend is a big one in Cape May. Several thousand competitors descend upon our fair town, biking, running, and swimming in some of the most beautiful terrain you’ll find in competitive triathlons.

We’re thrilled to be part of it each year, brewing a special beer — Escape the Cape — to mark the occasion.

This year will be truly something special — three members of the Brew Crew have agreed to run a relay team for us! We got together with Paul Greer, Lauren Frech, and Caitlin Gard to get their thoughts on swimming/running/biking their leg of this award-winning triathlon.

We were hoping that we could find someone at the brewery to take the plunge and run the full triathlon, but we couldn’t find anyone that determined.

Escape the Cape

So, you’ve decided that you want to jump off a Cape May-Lewes ferry. Maybe you’re an adventure-seeker, maybe you’re a flotation device tester, maybe you’re just a little bit loopy on bus fumes. For whatever reason, you’ve decided that a 12-foot plunge into 65° water is in the cards for you.

We don’t judge.

However, if it’s something you’ve been wanting to do with 1,750 of your now-closest friends, followed by a five-mile run along the North Cape May beaches, then a ride on your trustiest bike for 23 miles, you should probably do so as part of one of the best triathlons in the nation: Escape the Cape.

Because, if you’re a competitor, you get to attend a killer after-party and sample one of the most refreshing beers you’re likely to find: Escape the Cape.

Sounds like a great day on the town… or a great night on the town.

Tour de Cape May

If you’re planning a trip to Cape May for Memorial Day Weekend — or at any point over the summer — you’ll probably want to know where to find our beer.

You could check our Beer Finder, zoom in on the downtown, and go from there. That’s a perfectly acceptable way to do things.

However, we decided to put together this handy-dandy tour of downtown Cape May. Because there’s no better way to plan your visit to America’s Oldest Seaside Resort.

This summer is gearing up to be awesome.

It’s Eventful!

As we get closer to summer, our events calendar really starts to fill up. American Craft Beer Week — happening now — kicks off a summer season filled with festivals, tap takeovers, pop-up beer gardens, and every kind of event to tickle your fancy and get our beers into some unusual places.

In fact, this coming weekend is one of our busiest, with six events on Saturday alone, spread all throughout the area.

We caught up with our Chief Celebrations Officer Randi Friel to get the lowdown on what to expect this summer.

We’re all there to enjoy craft beer. Let’s do it together.

American Craft Beer Week 2018

ACBW18_redThere are plenty of week-long observances out there.

Some are good ones: we just observed Teacher Appreciation Week. Did you thank a teacher? They deserve it.

Some are practical: Healthy and Safe Swimming Week is the week before Memorial Day. These are good things to think about as we head into season.

Some are a little ridiculous: we’re currently in the midst of National Raisin Week. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But there’s one that we can all get behind, and it’s coming up the week of May 14th: American Craft Beer Week!

Be a good kid and bring her down to the brewery this weekend.

Celebrate Mom!

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, which means it’s time to honor all that the mothers in our lives have done for us over the years.

She ran you from tuba practice to soccer practice to tutoring and somehow managed to figure out a way to not let you starve in the meantime. She cleaned your room when the only people allowed in there should have been wearing hazmat suits. Through all of your faults and missteps, she kept a winning smile on her face, clinging to the unerring belief in your inherent goodness.

Now, the mom in your life keeps your kids fed between running them to dance class and baseball practice and Scouts. Your friends publicly comment on what a beautiful home she keeps and privately comment that you’re a lucky man. She magically juggles a family and a rewarding career, and you thank your lucky stars that she came into your life.

And don’t forget all of those “honorary moms”: your grandma who’s been to every tuba recital. The sainted aunt who stepped in while mom was sick and out of commission for a week. Your high school friend’s mom who still answers to “mom” when you run into her at the mall.

For all that she does, mom — in all her forms — deserves a beer.

“Our craft beer selection, focusing on New Jersey brews, is sort of untouchable around here,” Callum says.

Spotlight On… The Local!

“Let’s pop down the local.”

Now… that’s not a thing you hear. At least, it’s not a thing you hear around here. But to Swindon, England native Callum Satchell, that’s a thing he heard people say all the time.

“In any town in England, if someone says, ‘Oh, where are you going tonight?’ ‘Just poppin’ down the local,’” he explains. “That’s the local pub in the town. We wanted to instill that in Mount Holly. What we really wanted to do was create something sourcing local products and goods, but we wanted to give it the warmth of what a local pub in England would be.”

And, with partner Derek Little, they’ve truly captured that. The Local in up-and-coming Mount Holly is warm and cozy, with the honey-colored bar taking up half of the width of the downstairs — with multiple local whiskeys, vodkas, and gins lining up the back wall and a “New Jersey Tap Takeover” happening every night of the week.

“This year’s going to be extra fun because it falls on a First Firkin Friday, so instead of having our usual one-off sixtels, we’ll have two casks.” -- Chief Celebrations Officer Randi Friel

May the Fourth Be With You!

The choices one makes on the fourth day of May truly separate the men from the boys — or, at the very least, it separates Star Wars fans from mere mortals.

This year will be no different.

May the Fourth be with you!

Sounds like the perfect time for a sale!

Summer Sale!

Although the weather doesn’t seem to be cooperating, summer is actually right around the corner.

Seriously. It is. It’s difficult to tell, but it is.

And summer at CMBC means one thing: the arrival of Summer Catch.

This year, to kick off the season of Summer Catch, we’ve got a full weekend of fun and deals planned at our Tasting Room the weekend of April 27th.

Beer and Jazz

EZJF (1)Hold onto your hats, cats and kittens! It’s time again for the highlight of Cape May’s Spring kick-off: the Exit Zero Jazz Festival, and Cape May Brewing Co. has once again signed on as the exclusive beer sponsor of the festival, with a whole new brew making its debut.

Taking over Cape May for two weekends each spring and fall, the Exit Zero Jazz Festival has got it goin’ on. You can see some of the biggest names in jazz at Convention Hall, the Schmidtchen Theater at Lower Cape May Regional High School, at the Shackleton Playhouse, and at some of the coolest bars and clubs in town.

And we love being a part of it.
