“It's the lure of more hops that did it, because who doesn't love more hops?"

Anniversary Ale 8

Bob Ross taught us that we don’t make mistakes, we make happy accidents. Those are certainly words to live by, particularly in the brewing world.

For example, if we hadn’t mucked up a batch of Cranberry Wheat back in the day, we wouldn’t have The Bog. That, certainly, is a happy accident.

However, that happy accident happened over six years ago. Six years later, with eight years of brewing under our collective belt, mistakes are fewer and farther between. When they happen — and they do — they’re much smaller mistakes than over-cranberrying a Cranberry Wheat.

It’s ironic that something as simple as an added word in a description could affect the entire recipe of a beer. 

Even more ironic that it’s what happened to the brew meant to celebrate eight years of killer beers, Anniversary Ale 8.

“There’s no roof for where it’s gonna go. The trajectory is unquestionable. You guys know what you’re doing. WE know what we’re doing, I guess I can say that now.”

Welcome Connor!

Having been here a few years, we’ve noticed a trend: each summer, we’ll get a recent college graduate or two who are looking to have one final fun summer before embarking on their career track.

Connor was looking for a fun summer before stepping into corporate America,” Chris explains. “Luckily, I needed someone to sling some kegs. Connor was the perfect fit. He brings great excitement to the team and a go-getter attitude.”

Welcome Connor!

“It’s awesome,” he says. “It’s laid back and friendly. Everyone’s upbeat and positive. It’s been great so far.”

Welcome Brendan

One of the great things about this business is that we’re always running into other people in the same business. Out in the field, at bars and at conventions, the brewing community is a tight-knit one.

That’s why, when we needed a new Draft Technician, finding someone with experience wasn’t difficult.

“Brendan brings a wealth of experience to the position with over five years of draft cleaning in New Jersey and Utah,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “He also has a sharp and dry wit about him that adds to the chemistry of the Distribution team at Cape Beverage. Ask him one day about his ever-changing mustache and facial hair, too!”

Welcome our new Line Technician, Brendan Carolan!

"I look forward to many years of working with Ryan to better beer in the U.S.”

Ryan on the Board

There have been a lot of great things happening around the brewery over these past few weeks. Babies, anniversaries, expansions, partnerships, and, of course, literally tons of great new brews.

Now there’s even more great news: Ryan Krill was named as an Ex Officio member of the board of the Beer Institute!

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!

The Bog Cocktails

There’s nothing better than an awesome beer cocktail. Cool and refreshing, they’re perfect for the summer months — and they mix two of your favorite things: beer and cocktails!

And there’s no better beer cocktail than one made with The Bog. Its sweetness and its cranberry deliciousness are perfect for a beer cocktail. In addition, its low 3.9% ABV makes it excellent for a mixer.

We’ve had a number of events over the past few weeks that featured some Bog joyfulness in a cocktail form. Check ‘em out!

“It’s an exciting time for us, and we can’t wait to bring the beer our fans have come to love on their trips down to the Jersey Shore to their homes in Pennsylvania.”

Expansion into Reading

If Billy Joel is to be believed — and there’s no reason not to believe the Piano Man himself — in Allentown, they’re closing all the factories down, and out in Bethlehem, they’re killing time by filling out forms and standing in line.

But our (grand)fathers fought the Second World War and spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore. When they did, they were probably introduced to some good beer. That is, if they did so after 2011.

So they’re waiting there in Allentown. Waiting for some CMBC. They’re waiting in Bethlehem. They’re waiting in Reading. And in Easton. And Lancaster and Kutztown and Strasberg and Nazareth.

And we’ll be there to help them out.

“This beer is light and crisp with a nice spiciness backed by citrus.”

Great Wit Shark

Get ready for a shark attack.

From time to time, they happen at the Jersey Shore. In fact, back in 1916, there were enough in one season to inspire the book and movie Jaws.

This season, though, you’re not going to want to avoid these sharks. You’re going to want to seek them out. At least, you’ll want to look for Great Wit Shark from Cape May Brewing Company.

No sharp teeth on this one. No fins, no muscular Jaws. (And, unfortunately, no Roy Schneider or Richard Dreyfuss, either.)

Only a clean and gentle Belgian-style wit with a touch of orange and lemon peels, coriander, and grains of paradise.

You’re gonna need a bigger boat.

“We’ve always looked up to Yards and have a lot of respect for them, and that’s why they’ll be an awesome partner for this next phase in our growth.”

Cape May Brewing Company and Yards

When it comes to brewing in the Philly area, there are a couple of big names, but there’s one that’s always stood head and shoulders above the rest.

They essentially started the Philadelphia craft beer scene back in ‘95.

Their Philadelphia Pale Ale released in 2000 is both ubiquitous and delicious.

Social Media and Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg literally cannot get enough of their cherry and raspberry ale.

Their new facility on Spring Garden St. made headlines when it opened in 2017.

By now, you probably realize that we’re talking about Yards Brewing Company, and we’ll be partnering with them to bring you Cape May Lager.

If your kid asks for your support to start a brewery: go with it.

Mop Man’s Advice

We’ve got a number of new fathers around the brewery:

Ryan and his wife Kaysi had Radley Theodore back in February.

Justin and his wife Mariel had Piper Anne three weeks ago, and, while Justin’s not exactly a new father, the last time he went through all of this was ten years ago.

And Craig and his wife Amanda should have had a baby last weekend, but, as we write this, we’re still on Baby Watch. (Let’s hope she goes on Father’s Day!)

So, this Father’s Day, we wanted to catch up with the brewery’s father — the Mop Man himself, Bob Krill — to see what advice he had for these new proud papas.
