“We’re Being a Good Neighbor, even in Denver."

Denver, Here we come!

There are certain things in life that are simply impossible.

Licking your elbow, for example. You simply cannot lick your own elbow. You can try, but it is impossible to lick your own elbow.

Getting Distribution Manager Justin Vitti to stop showing pictures of his newborn daughter, Piper. You simply cannot get Justin Vitti to stop showing pictures of Piper. But… she’s adorable, so we’ll let it slide.

Sampling all 4,000 beers at the Great American Beer Festival. It is simply not possible to sample all of the beers in Denver at GABF next weekend. In a four-hour session, you’d have to sample 1,000 beers an hour. That’s 16.67 beers a minute. That’s a two-ounce beer every three-and-a-half seconds.

You can’t do it. You shouldn’t try. That’s 500 pints of beer in four hours. Even the most daredevilish amongst us will realize that there’s simply no way of achieving this. 

So, if you’re planning to be in Denver at the Colorado Convention Center next weekend, you’d better have a gameplan, and it should involve making a beeline to our booth in the Mid-Atlantic section, 24-14.

“It’s much more relaxing than some of the jobs I’ve had. I like being out on the road.”

Welcome Marco!

As we expand up north, it helps to have people making deliveries who have some understanding of the region.

“Having grown up in West Orange, Marco brings knowledge of the northern counties new to our distribution area,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “With his experience delivering to those metro areas in his past gig, he’s not afraid of the long drive up and the super heavy traffic.”

Welcome Marco Facchiano!

It’s still receiving wide distribution on draft; however, it will only be available in 12-ounce cans through our Tasting Room.

Fare Thee Well, Mop Water….

Regardless of what the thermometer might say, autumn is here! 

It’s still pretty hot in Cape May — and, indeed, just about everywhere with sunlight — but, rest assured, the people in charge of such things have confirmed that the hours of night exceed the hours of daylight and the leaves on the trees are slowly draining of chlorophyll and will be dazzling us with their rainbow of reds, yellows, and browns and beginning their annual plummet to the ground to be gathered into jump-inviting piles in short order. 

Nonetheless, it feels like summer has been even longer than the preceding sentence. 

Yet, as we ready ourselves for the inaugural Pick of the Batch Beer Garden, we know that cool days and crisp nights are in short order and bring with them all of the wonderful things we love about fall.

And, of course, that means the return of our fall-favorite, Mop Water.

Sour Beer Day 2019

We’re proud of our sour beer program. We were one of the first in New Jersey to brew sour beers — certainly the first to have a dedicated sour brewery — and we’ve been going strong since the beginning.

Our first season of barrel-aged sours ended up with the top two entries on The Beer Connoisseur’s Top 10 American Wild Ales of 2017, with The Topsail being named their Best Beer of 2017. From the second season, Phantom Crew and Higbee won multiple awards. And, in this season of sour brews, The Beer Connoisseur rated Temporarily Permanent an astounding 95: Exceptional.

And, today, on Sour Beer Day, we’ll be celebrating sour beer in all its glory!

“Mooncusser is a juice-bomb-meets-balanced-crusher."

Mooncusser Pale Ale

Did you celebrate on Thursday? It was a pretty important day, in the grand scheme of things.

It’s too early to be Christmas. Thanksgiving is still a ways away. It’s not even Halloween yet. Regardless, for those in the know, Thursday was a very, very important day.

Of course, we’re talking about Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Granted, it doesn’t have the cachet of a National Hamburger Day (which was Wednesday) or a Sour Beer Day (which is Friday) or even a National Banana Day (which is April 15th), because all of them revolve around consuming some sort of food or liquid.

So, we’re taking back Talk Like a Pirate Day. How? you may ask.

By releasing a very pirate-y pale ale: Mooncusser Pale Ale.

“Kölsches are so crisp and clean that it is difficult to make a good one because there is nothing to hide behind if there are any off-flavors.”


The journey is its own reward.

Go the distance.

Work hard, play hard.

You’re always out to better yourself. Your biggest competition is you. You push yourself each and every day to get better and better, and you don’t take good enough as success.

And, for that, you deserve a beer.

That’s why, on Saturday, in conjunction with the inaugural Beach to Brewery 10K, we’ll be releasing Finisher, a Kölsch-style ale, to celebrate the winner in each of us.

“I really like the atmosphere and the culture. It’s not stuffy like the last place I worked.”

Welcome Brandy!

Our new AP/AR Specialist, Brandy Darby, began working in the Brewtique, but it didn’t take long for us to realize how valuable she could be for the rest of the company.

“Brandy came to us from our local Coast Guard community,” says Tasting Room General Manager Chris Costello, “and she had a wealth of experience that we could not pass up. After meeting her, I knew we needed to find a place for her in our CMBC family. She quickly fit in with our team and Christine was already looking to see how she could help us more. While I’m very sad to see Brandy less in the Tasting Room, I’m very glad that we were able to find a great fit for her within our company.”

Welcome Brandy!

"I'm really excited to take in the magnitude of this race."


Packaging Lead Steve DiMartino finally gave in to peer pressure — primarily the pressure from Innovation Director Brian Hink (and the marketing team) — to join our BikeMS: City to Shore team, and we couldn’t be more proud of him.

Regardless of the pressure to join, Steve is always looking for new ways to challenge himself athletically, and the fact that he can do so while raising funds and awareness for a good cause makes it all worthwhile.

Check out his video below! And don’t forget to donate!

It's really bright and super vibrant.

The Grove

Sometimes life throws you a nice surprise when you least expect it.

Like finding $20 in the pocket of a pair of jeans you haven’t worn in months or noticing a squirreled-away can of The Bog in the back of your fridge in January, the least-expected surprises are sometimes the best.

Kind of like a citrus shandy in October. You don’t see it coming, it kind of catches you off-guard, but it’s definitely a nice surprise.

And our citrus shandy, The Grove, is definitely more than a “nice surprise”. It moves beyond the bounds of “nice” into the realms of “unbelievably delicious.”
