“We’ve been brainstorming ways to implement this idea for months, and I’m so happy that it’s finally come together.”

Buy a Friend a Drink

How often have you been sitting at home — forlornly, because you’re not at our Tasting Room — mindlessly scrolling through your social media platform of choice, when you see a good friend of yours check in at our Tasting Room?

“Oh!” you think. “I wish I could buy my brother’s fiancee’s cousin’s uncle’s second-grade music teacher a drink. She’s awesome! She deserves it!”

You may pick up the phone and give us a call, only to be told that, unfortunately, we can’t take a credit card over the phone.

It’s as frustrating for us as it is for you. We know what a wonderful and thoughtful gift that would be for your brother’s fiancee’s cousin’s uncle’s second-grade music teacher. She totally rocks.

Well… now you can buy her a drink!

"An ice cold Lager is the perfect grill master accessory on a hot summer’s day, grilling some burgers for the whole family."

Memorial Day and Cape May Lager

The beginning of summer is finally here! (And we can all use a three-day weekend at this point….) Most of us probably have plans for at least one barbecue this weekend, and you’re probably looking for the right beer for your barbecue.

If you haven’t heard by now, we all think that the perfect barbecue beer is Cape May Lager. Its clean and crisp profile goes with just about everything you’d want at your weekend barbecue.

We hit up the Brew Crew to see what their favorite barbecue dishes are and why they’d pair perfectly with Cape May Lager.

“This is the perfect brunch beer.”

Crush this can!

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Man, I really like this Orange Crush. I wish it were a beer,” you’ve come to the right place.

Last year, Crushin’ It was one of our first exclusive releases, born from an internal homebrewing contest, and, suffice it to say, it was wildly popular. The response to it was overwhelming, such that, even though the first run was limited to about a hundred cases or so, it became exceedingly obvious that we needed to get it out for distribution.

So, that’s what we did. We brewed up another batch, kegged it up, and sent it out to some very grateful customers.

This year, we’re bringing it back. A few times, in fact. We’ll be dropping Crushin’ It on you guys a few more times this summer; however, with a whole new look.

"I like it a lot. It’s a perfect balance: not overly sweet, but not really heavy, either.”

Spotlight On… Red Rock Tap and Grill!

In a weird way, Red Bank is a lot like Cape May. They’re missing the beaches, but their downtown is trendy as hell. Many people know it as the home of Kevin Smith — the filmmaker responsible for such classic films as Clerks., Mallrats, Dogma, Chasing Amy, etc., etc., etc. — yet, it’s so much more.

Some 300 shops, numerous art galleries, a historic theatre, trendy bars, and modern restaurants are enveloped by Victorian architecture and enough historical markers to keep any self-proclaimed history buff infotained the whole day through.

Sounds a lot like home.

However, if you’ve had a Vitamin D overload and your tan is the envy of your friends, Red Bank is the perfect destination for browsing through some voguish shops, finding the perfect outfit for a night on the town, and then not having to go far to find that perfect night on the town. And, situated on the southern bank of the Navesink River, you won’t miss Cape May’s beaches for very long.

There, about as close as one can get to the river at 14 Wharf Ave., you’ll find one of the highlights of Red Bank, Red Rock Tap and Grill.

"With us and DC Brau there, it should be a fun night."


You know how sometimes you over-schedule yourself? You’ll have brunch with friends, then a barbecue at your aunt’s, then dinner with your step-mom, and then drinks with an old friend from high school?

That’s kinda how our week in DC is shaping up.

“Anyone I’ve ever talked to loves it here. They seem to look out for their employees and take care of them.”

Welcome Jenna Rae!

We’re expanding relatively quickly around here, and, while opening new territories is awesome, we’ve recognized the fact that we need someone to help maintain the ones we have. While the sales managers out in the field are great at what they do, it’s a good idea to have someone on staff to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

Enter Jenna Rae Copson.

“She’s got a great personality,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “She’s tremendously business savvy, a hard worker, and she has a proven track record of positive results in her career. It doesn’t hurt that she’s got a lot of local ties and loves Cape May Brewing Company.”

Welcome Jenna Rae!

American Craft Beer Week 2019

Sometimes, around 9:30pm on a Sunday — usually after too much weekend — you’ll sit back and think, “Maybe… I just never go back to work ever again, ever.”

It’s not an unreasonable thought. Your boss may not agree, but she’s probably had the same thought once or twice, as well.

However, some weeks are easier to anticipate than others. There are some weeks when you sit back on Sunday night and think, “Bring it, life! Wachu got?!?”

Those weeks almost always involve some sort of celebration: a birthday, an anniversary, a holiday of some sort. They’re even better when it’s a weeklong celebration.

Thankfully, the good folks over at the Brewers Association devised the best weeklong celebration we know: American Craft Beer Week!

A nationwide celebration of U.S. small and independent craft brewers, this weeklong salute to everyone’s favorite beverage provides an opportunity for craft brewers to share their creativity and passion for the beverage they love.

So, this Sunday, if you’re dreading the week ahead, keep in mind that CMBC has a week full of great events to celebrate the best week of the year, beginning May 13th!

“Great, easy-drinking beer.”

Follow the Gull reviews

Back in 2017, Cape May County asked us to help them celebrate a milestone. 325 years worth of milestones, in fact.

When your home county asks you to help them celebrate, you step up, particularly when they’re celebrating a birthdate that’s only 70 years after Plymouth.

Cape May County is olllllddd, y’all.

So, we brewed up a killer IPA in Follow the Gull — a juicy and ultra-drinkable hop-bomb bursting with tropical and citrus aromas — and people loved it! They loved it so much that we knew we had to keep bringing it back.

Check out what people had to say below!

You’ll get to spend some QT with mom. What more do you need?

Mother’s Day 2019

If your mom’s anything like ours — and, let’s face it: when it comes to motherhood, all moms are pretty much the same — she thinks she’s got the greatest kid in the world.

Thankfully… mom probably doesn’t have all of the pertinent information to make an informed decision on the matter; nonetheless, as far as mom is concerned, you can do no wrong.

She forgave you that time that you rode the subway for five days to get out of doing your chores. She just shook her head knowingly that time you climbed down a storm drain to get your iPhone. She didn’t even seem to mind that time you put your name and home number on a bathroom wall with “For a good time, call…”.

So, this Mother’s Day, to thank mom for turning a blind eye to all of the dumb stuff you’ve done since you’ve been able to do dumb stuff, bring her down to the brewery.

In fact, we’ve got ten reasons why you should.

“It seemed like an awesome work environment,” he says. “Everybody’s happy. Hopefully, I’ll still be able to continue to evolve and grow in the craft beer universe.”

Welcome Joe

Hey, there, North Jersey!

We’ve slowly been making our way through the northern counties of New Jersey, and we’ve recently hired Joe Zapoitc… Zapoticz… Zapoticzny…

…“Joe Zap”…

…to open up Passaic, Bergen, Essex, and Hudson counties for us!

“Joe’s got a bunch of experience, with over seven years in beer sales,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli. “More importantly, he really wants to get our name out there. He’s got a real desire to spread Cape May’s beers throughout Northeast New Jersey. When you combine that with a last name that’s as difficult to pronounce as my own, I know Joe’s going to do a great job here.”

Welcome Joe Zap!
