Bring him down for the best reason of all: quality time with dad.

Treat Dad for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means that it’s time to show dad what he means to you. After all, he’s the guy who taught you how to drive, how to throw a baseball, and even turned a blind eye when you raided your first beer from his fridge.

Now you’re old enough to not have to steal your brews — and you’ve got better taste in beer now, anyway.

Father’s Day is the perfect time to treat dad to a trip to the brewery, where you can bond over a beer that’s been Crafted on the Cape.

And we’ve got the top ten reasons why you should make haste to 1288 Hornet Road in the Cape May Airport.

“Everyone from the Rabbit Hill group is just really awesome.”

Bounding through Rabbit Hill

This industry has the tendency to lead you places you never thought you’d be. Sour beer festivals in Indiana, for example. Smelling hops in Oregon. Tourism conferences in Boise.

They’ve all been amazing experiences for the attendees — we learn a lot at conferences, we make a ton of important connections at beer festivals, and selecting hops is all part of the business.

However, if you’d asked us ten years ago if we thought we’d ever be on the back of a tractor, sitting on a bale of hay, getting a tour through a gigantic grain farm in Shiloh, NJ, we’d have slapped the beer out of your hand.

Yet, it’s the unknown places in our backyard that can be the most rewarding. That’s why, when Hillary and the folks from Rabbit Hill Farms hit us up to attend a thank-you picnic on the farm, we didn’t hesitate to say yes.

“I had the American Dream experience.”

Welcome Polly

It takes a special kind of person to pick up and move 8,000 miles from the only home she’s ever known.

Luckily, at Cape May Brewing Company, we like special people. So, when Candice “Polly” Pollock-Bell applied for a full-time position in the Tasting Room, even though we didn’t have any full-time positions, we knew better than to let her slip through our fingers.

“Polly’s previous experience, while not warehouse-related, required the critical thinking and organizational skills that we need in the warehouse,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “Also, I was slack-jawed at one point in the interview when she told me that she’d been driving a forklift since she was eight. She said that she was rusty, but after ten minutes practicing in the parking lot, it was clear that she was perfect for the job.”

Welcome our new Warehouse Manager, Polly!

“Everything is better with Brett.”

Always Bretty

Haaaave… you met Brett?

Brett — full name Brettanomyces lambicus — is known to bring the funk. He’s a bit of a wild guy, and he’s Always Ready to get down.

So, we let them chill together for ten weeks — just to the point where things are funky enough without being too funky.

“I’ve learned quite a bit already. I’m already comfortable with the processes. It didn’t really take too long.”

Welcome Carl

Our newest Packaging Operator, Carl Gansert, has some serious chops.

“I hired Carl because he’s a good guy with some solid experience,” says Packaging Manager Mark Graves. “He’s expressed a passion to be in this industry, which I saw from the limited time I met him, and he seems to be a high-character guy who fits in with the kind of person Cape May loves to hire. All those factors considered, it was an easy decision to make.”

Welcome Carl!

“Very light and refreshing. Perfect on a hot day.”

Summer Catch is here!

If you’re anything like us, summer officially began this past weekend.

And the temperatures (and humidity) have been around to make sure no one forgets.

When summer rolls around and the temperatures start hitting that 90° mark, there’s only one beer that will do: Summer Catch. Full of flavor with notes of orange peel, tropical fruits, and a hint of classic Belgian essence, Summer Catch is citrusy, refreshing, and maybe a little too crushable. Lightly dry-hopped with Citra and Amarillo, it’s unpretentious yet complex: kinda like life at the Jersey Shore.

“It’s clean and crisp and doesn’t have the typical Belgian esters of other witbiers,” says Head Distribution Specialist Chris Martin. “I love to kick back with one after mowing the lawn on a hot day.”

“Philly Beer Week is one of the best weeks of the year.”

Philly Beer Week 2019

There are a few things that people should know about Philly:

  1. Rocky is a saint.
  2. Cheesesteaks are awesome.
  3. The beer is better than the water.

The last one isn’t even up for debate — the Schyukill Punch (aka, Philly tap water) is the scourge of Philadelphia, while the beer in the area is really rather good.

Actually, it’s better than “rather good.” Philly beer is awesome.

Since, down in Cape May, we root for the Phillies and the Eagles and the Flyers and the 76ers, we get to consider Cape May Brewing Company as a part of the great beer in Philadelphia, particularly since you’re able to find our beer throughout the city and the counties beyond.

That’s why, when Philly Beer Week rolls around each year, we jump in feet first. And this year’s festival running May 31st through June 9th is no exception.

“I truly appreciate that everyone at CMBC is part of the Brew Crew and that an Events Team Member can come up with a beer and see it put into production.”

Refresh-zing

One of the great things about working at CMBC is that we’ve got a number of homebrewers around this place. From the Beertenders to the brewers, odds are that, at any given time, someone currently working has something fermenting at home.

So, when we decided to begin holding internal homebrew contests last year, it was no surprise that we had entrants from numerous departments throughout the brewery.

We’ve had four of these contests — the past three winners have been two brewers and a Beertender (who’s also won numerous awards as a homebrewer).

For the contest that produced this weekend’s release, Refresh-zing — a Belgian Saison with cayenne, turmeric, ginger, and coriander — we were thrilled to see a member of the Events team come through with the win. Jenna Tesauro — Associate Director of Academic Affairs and Advising at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania by day, events rockstar by night — came through with the winning recipe this time around, and the beer blew us all away.

“Growing up as we are as a company, we wanted to take a step up in our quality. I think this is a huge, huge step in that direction.”

The Italian Stallion

Packaging Manager Mark Graves is downright giddy.

He’s not a man to whom you’d often apply such an adjective — packaging beer is serious business (said no one ever) — but when he has the biggest, shiniest new toy in the place, his giddiness is infectious.

If you had a big, shiny, new canning line, you’d be giddy, too.

“It's approachable for the Everyman beer drinker, but it has a subtle complexity that the craft beer drinker really enjoys.”

Wild Wooder is Here!

Morey’s Piers in Wildwood is celebrating 50 years of quality entertainment at the Jersey Shore, and we’re along for the ride.

Er… rides. Morey’s has over sixty rides for the young and young-at-heart, all overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean on the thrilling Wildwood boardwalk.

Now, while you trod the boards and take your chances on such rides as Cygnus X-1, Atmosfear!, Ghost Ship, The Great Nor’Easter, the Sea Serpent, or the all-new Runaway Tram, you’ll be able to sip on Cape May Brewing Company’s newest creation: Wild Wooder.
