If you’ve never experienced a holiday season in Cape May, you’re missing out.
The entire town turns into a Winter Wonderland of joy and happiness: the winding streets are decorated like a Rockwell painting come to life, the sights and sounds of the season fill the air, even the clip-clop of the horse-drawn carriages through town takes on a special warmth throughout the holidays.
Cape May does the holidays right.
And we don’t forget that here at Cape May Brewing Company! We’ve got a great holiday season planned, and we’re kicking it off on Black Friday with the release of Boughs of Barley 2019!
We took our delicious and complex Baltic Porter, carefully fermented it with our house lager yeast, cold conditioned it for a month, then laid it down in freshly-emptied port wine and bourbon barrels. Perfect for aging, each variant will bring joy to one and all this holiday season.
In the port variant, you’ll find strong aromas of the port barrels’ presence on the nose, with a hint of port acidity. On the bourbon side, you’ll find a well-rounded body and a delicate sweetness with strong notes of vanilla, chocolate, and oaken char on the nose. At $17.99 +tax per bottle, both variants are intensely well-balanced, insanely delicious, and the perfect addition to your holiday plans.
We’ll also be releasing our newest bourbon-barrel-aged Imperial Cream Ale, Coquito! Inspired by the traditional Puerto Rican Christmas drink, Coquito is aged for eleven months in second-use bourbon barrels and conditioned on house-toasted coconut flakes and finely-chopped cinnamon and cloves. Its underlying sweetness is cut by the subtle oaken finish, and the vanillins extracted from the wood are complemented by a generous addition of Madagascar vanilla beans. Equally delicious around a roaring fire or on the sunny beaches of San Juan, Coquito is perfect for gathering with friends and family for holiday cheer. Packaged in 16-ounce four-packs, they’ll be available for $18.99 + tax.
We’ve got a bunch of new merch in the store right now, and we’ll have even more ready to launch on Black Friday! You won’t want to miss this merch — it’s perfect for gathering around a roaring fire with a glass of delicious Boughs of Barley 2019 to warm you!
