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.

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!

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!

“The atmosphere is good. And the people are nice. I haven’t had any issues with anybody. I don’t see why I should, anyway.”

Welcome Jason!

The military will prepare you for nearly any job in existence, and, if you can get through a tour of duty, you can get through just about anything.

“Jason came to us with truck driving experience from the military,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “He has an extremely positive attitude, is totally flexible for tasks to be completed, and is a team player. His military experience will also be a key differentiating factor when the Sales Department eventually agrees to a requested paintball match against the Distribution Department.”

Welcome Jason Dotts!

Apple Bomb in Cans!

One of the guiding forces at Cape May Brewing Company has always been “we brew beer we want to drink.”

It’s been a good philosophy, one that has served us well for the past eight years. It’s brought forth some award-winning brews and some that have simply become award-winning in the eye of the beer holder.

But, here’s the deal: we don’t necessarily want to drink the same thing all the time. We like to change it up. In fact, that’s pretty much the hallmark of craft beer: innovation.

So, beers come and beers go. It’s a simple fact of nature. 

But, sometimes, thankfully, they come back. Like Apple Bomb. Our outstanding not-a-cider apple beer wasn’t on the schedule this year. Until it was.

So, since we’re bringing it back, why not put it in cans?

“It’s so entertaining to hear people’s stories about why they come here."

Welcome Marie!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: our fans make some of our best employees.

“Marie has been a longtime fan of Cape May Brewing Company and has always loved our brand and beer,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello. “Her organizational skills are key, as she was running a doctor’s office prior to her retirement. She brings that professional working experience to our team and is eager to help out wherever possible. Marie has been an amazing asset in the Brewtique and at the greeter stand!”

Welcome Marie Dougherty!

CBMTRA Back Again!

We haven’t given you an update on the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act — affectionately called “com-BOO-tra” — in a while, and for good reason. It was rolled into the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, so, for the past year-and-a-half, it’s been the law of the land, cutting our excise taxes in half and allowing us to reinvest that money into making better beer for you.

However, that law — also known as President Trump’s controversial “tax cuts” — is set to expire at the end of 2019. So, we’re gearing up for another fight on CBMTRA, and, thankfully, New Jersey’s entire delegation to Congress has our back.

Pick of the Batch Beers

Pick of the Batch will be upon us before you know it, and we’re all getting tremendously excited!

While the fall-fun activities will be out in full force — get ready for face painting and Steinholding! — let’s face it: that’s not why we signed on. We’re not here for Cornhole and pumpkin painting, even though we are getting really good at both.

Naw. We’re here to make awesome beers. And Pick of the Batch is here to put them on display.

So, as we gear up for October 12th, we’re ready to unveil the stellar lineup of exclusive brews you’ll find at Pick of the Batch!

And, if you’re thinking you want no parts of the competition, Steinholding is definitely a spectator event.

Pick of the Batch Activities

Our inaugural Pick of the Batch Beer Garden is beginning to come together! We’re very excited about this event — it’s gearing up to be the event to end all CMBC events. (But it won’t. We’ll still have others. No worries, folks.)

Regardless, you’re not going to want to miss this one! We’ve got some awesome autumn activities planned, like pumpkin painting and face painting, as well as a 56-bale hay maze. We’ve got some crazy contests planned, and you are not going to want to miss the Steinholding competition. It’s so much more difficult than it sounds!

We’ll have more information to come about our tasty and delicious fall beers like a merlot saison, Coastal Evacuation with habañero and mango, and our Honey Porter with pumpkin and pie spices, but, until then, we’ve got a day filled with awesome activities, sure to put a smile on the faces of everyone in the family.
