Pumpkin Cooler

It’s Halloween, and that means pumpkin everything. You’ve got pumpkin donuts, pumpkin coffee, and even David S. Pumpkins arises from his year-long slumber to do a weird hand jive and make everyone say, “What…?

Well, we’ve got directions for a Pumpkin Cooler for you! Simply follow the easy steps below, and you can have your very own Pumpkin Cooler!

"All of the flavors really come through in their own time, nothing really jumps out at you, nothing’s really overpowering."

Mexican Coffee Stout

It’s definitely cooling down in South Jersey. It took us a while to get there, but the signs of fall are in the air and on the trees — you get to break out your favorite hoodie every day and watch as the leaves turn brilliant colors of red and gold and yellow.

And, as the weather turns cooler and the days become shorter, it’s time to turn your taste buds from the thirst-quenching beers of summer to the warming beers of winter. Break out those porters and those stouts — it’s time to start looking for something bone-clinging, maybe with a bit of heat to it.

“While I do believe that any beer can be had at any time of the year,” says Lab Manager Lauren Appleman, “there is just something about a viscous and roasty/chocolately stout when the weather gets cooler.”

That’s why it’s the perfect time of year to release our Mexican Coffee Stout, chock full of vanilla, cinnamon, and guajillo peppers.

BI Hill Climb 2019

Ryan and Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello flew down to D.C. last week for the Beer Institute’s annual Hill Climb, eventually getting stuck down there during that awful storm that shut down everything along the Eastern Seaboard.

However, that simply gave them more time to discuss matters that affect the brewing industry with our local officials. (Or, more accurately, hunker down in the hotel, wait for the storm to pass, and work on their budgets for 2020.)

Regardless, aside from a few networking and social events — where Cape May beer flowed liberally –, they engaged our legislators on two bills up for review: CBMTRA and the APEX Act.

It’s going to be a spooOOooOOooky night!

2019 Halloween Bash

It’s the spooOOooOOkiest time of year! The pumpkins are hung by the cauldron with care, and the children are huddled in the most sincere pumpkin patch, awaiting the arrival of the Great Pumpkin.

And CMBC is gearing up for their annual Halloween Bash!

See you next year!

Pick of the Batch Pics

We had a blast at Pick of the Batch

Animal House rocked, everyone had a great time at all the activities, and the beer selection was fantastic! We’re going to see what we can do about ordering up the same weather for next year — 75° and not a cloud in the sky. Perfect!

“What a home run of an event!” Ryan said. “The beers were great, and I think everyone was having a great time. Even Radley had fun!”

If you’ve got #FOMO for missing it, no worries. We’ll definitely be doing this again next year, and it’ll be even bigger and better than this year!

In the meantime, check out the pictures below.

You won’t be remotely as crabby as your hoodie when you’re wearing this hoodie!

Fall Swag is Here!

It looks like fall is finally here! The leaves are still relatively green on the trees, but, if you’ve got any number of oak trees near you, you’re probably aware of the hazards of going outside barefoot right now: those acorns will kill you!

Yet, temperatures are dropping! The 80° days of early October are finally a thing of the past, and the days are dawning upon one of our favorite times of year: hoodie weather!

Is there anything better than donning your favorite, well-worn hoodie, either proclaiming your love for your favorite team, or a much-loved band, or even — luckily for us — your favorite brewery.

Well, we’ve got a killer lineup of products — including your new favorite hoodie — just in time for fall.

Ties the Room Together returns!

How many of you Big Lebowski fans have only seen the movie one time?

Exactly. No hands. No one. No one has ever seen The Big Lebowski only one time. Nothing so quotable could possibly pass by with only one viewing.

In that vein, why would we only brew Ties the Room Together once? Even Maude would find that ludicrous.

And we’re pretty sure that most of our fans would agree. The response to Ties the Room Together was overwhelmingly positive.

“Sales and marketing kept getting requests for it throughout the summer, asking when it was coming back,” says Innovation Director Brian Hink. “We had no intention of revisiting it, but the demand seemed too good to pass up. So, like The Dude, we… abided…?”

So, to keep it easy for all us sinners, we brought it back. It’s available in the Tasting Room and is out for distribution now.

Check out the reviews below!

Bringin' home the Bronze!

Great American Beer Festival 2019

This past weekend, CMBC high-tailed it to Denver to participate in the 2019 Great American Beer Festival and the Denver Rare Beer Tasting.

We entered a few beers into the competition this year, and, lo and behold!, Honey Porter came through with a bronze medal in the Brown Porter category! This year, 9,497 entries were submitted to the general competition, along with 113 Pro-Am and 70 Collaboration entries, by 2,295 breweries from across the nation, with entries from all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. There were some sixty other entries in the Brown Porter category, and we really couldn’t be more pleased.

“Honey Porter has long been one of the mainstays of our lineup,” Ryan said. “It’s extraordinarily gratifying that this recipe that began in my bathtub as one of my homebrews almost a decade ago got us our very first medal at GABF.”

Nearly 60,000 people attended GABF this year, and the event was a huge success! Check out the pics below!

“It's downright delicious.”

Jersey Shore Souvenir

It’s easy to make friends in this industry. Not only does our product lend itself to bringing people together, but we’re constantly networking with each other — not only at industry events, but for equipment, as well.

After we installed our new canning line, it was time to sell our old one. Thankfully, it caught the eye of one of the “biggest names in beer,” Other Half Brewing of Brooklyn, New York. Well known for blazing a trail in the City, for hazy New England IPAs, and for lines around the block and capacity crowds, neither of us hesitated when the subject of a collaboration beer was breached. 

So, on Saturday — just in time for our inaugural Pick of the Batch Beer Garden — we’ll release Jersey Shore Souvenir: a crisp, bright KellerPils, perfect for that last lawnmower ride of the season.

There’s no rain in the forecast for the foreseeable future, and, with temperatures in the low 70s, there’s no better weather for doing some drankin’ outside!

Pick of the Batch is this Saturday!

The inaugural Pick of the Batch Beer Garden is this weekend, and tickets are selling fast! 

We’ve been having a blast putting together this event for our loyal fans, and we can’t wait to kick it off from 2-6pm on Saturday. We’re currently sold out of advance tickets, but we’ll have an extremely limited number available on Saturday!

However, if you’re still on the fence as to whether or not you’d like to attend, we’ve got ten reasons that you should visit us behind the Tasting Room this weekend!
