What’s on Tap
Cape May IPAIPA - American
The American IPA named for America’s Oldest Seaside Resort, Cape May IPA is loaded with floral and citrus notes, slightly bitter with a zesty finish. Dry-hopped with almost a pound per barrel, it’s the brew that’s Crafted on the Cape.
Crusty BarnaclePale Ale - American
Back in 2015, we decided to bring back our Employee Series for a hot minute, but this time around we had the Brew Crew work in teams instead of on their own. The Tasting Room team brewed up a super crushable, bone-dry pale ale. Hopped up with Centennial and Amarillo, these hops naturally bring forth notes of grapefruit and citrus, but since this beast is fermented entirely with Brett, these hops take on a wave of exotic and tropical aromas of papaya and pineapple. With oats in the malt bill for a greater head retention and a creamier mouthfeel, it’s the fluffiest, pillowiest, softest brew ever to be called a Crusty Barnacle.
Sea MistressIPA - Session / India Session Ale
The sea is a harsh mistress. She’s cruel and unforgiving, taking good men before their time — mostly because they’ll spend all of their time on their boat. Can you blame them? At CMBC we love our boats, we love our time off to enjoy a brew, but we also love our IPAs. Sea Mistress Session IPA is anything but harsh — she’s loaded with hops, insanely aromatic, and bone dry, yet crisp and ridiculously refreshing. We’ve loaded this session IPA with citrus and fruit-forward hops, keeping the body strong enough to withstand the call of the sea, and dry hopped the heck out of it to make a session IPA that’ll be your new mistress.
Welcome to summers at the Jersey shore. Citrussy and refreshing with notes of orange peel and tropical fruits, Summer Catch — a crushable Belgian-style wheat ale — is sure to be your go-to beer all summer long.
Coastal EvacuationIPA - Imperial / Double
Coastal Evacuation — it’s a phrase that’s everywhere at the Jersey Shore. This West Coast-style Double IPA is as big and bold as hurricane season itself, with Centennial hops serving up hints of orange citrus and honeydew melon. It’s time to evacuate. Are you prepared?
Demisemiseptcentennial AlePale Ale - American
For Villanova’s 175th year, Ryan Krill ’05, Chris Henke ’05, and Bob Krill of Cape May Brewing Company have brewed Demisemiseptcentennial Ale: a Pale Ale brewed with German Pilsner malt, our House Ale yeast for its clean and easy-drinking quality, and a hefty dose of Centennial hops in the whirlpool for a floral and citrusy hop aroma. This brew is a veritable Professor of Suds, unifying all Wildcats with its drinkability, brewed with the care that only Villanovans can provide, and leaves an echo ringing from Bartley to Tolentine.
Devil’s ReachBelgian Strong Golden Ale
A Belgian beast, fruity and light, the complexity and character of Devil’s Reach comes from a robust Belgian yeast. Deceptively simple, caution is demanded because, before you know it, Devil’s Reach has swallowed you whole.
Tower 23 with Kiwi and LimeSour - Berliner Weisse
Honey PorterPorter - English
Here’s a taste of South Jersey, better known for farms than fist pumping. Roasted and dark crystal malts shine through in a smooth and light-bodied porter that is balanced by a hint of sweetness thanks to the local Jersey Fresh honey. Welcome to the Garden State, bro.
Apiology is the bee’s knees!
Apple BombFruit Beer
Say What!? Yes, this beer was designed to taste just like the description. This wheat beer is brewed with bready and biscuity malts and steeped with loads of fresh apples. It’s a tart twist on tasty tall tentacles. Say that ten times fast.
Mooncusser PilsnerPilsner - Czech
Mooncussers were land-based pirates along the Delaware River who would lure ships to run aground by disabling the Cape May Lighthouse and setting a separate fire further inland, giving the impression of a false shoreline. Once the ship ran aground, the Mooncussers would pillage and plunder the booty, but if a full moon was present, their plans were foiled, leaving them cursing the moon. Our Mooncusser is a traditional Czech-style Pilsner, with a crisp maltiness and a firm, clean bitterness. Noble Saaz hops lead the way, imparting their clean, grassy bitterness with a light body and a dry, satisfying finish. Unlike the mooncussers, you’ll welcome the summer moon with this brew and cuss it once it’s gone.
Honey Porter NitroPorter - English
What’s better than our beloved flagship Honey Porter? A nitrogenated version! With a creamy and rich texture, the roasted and dark crystal malts shine through in a light-bodied porter that is balanced by a hint of sweetness thanks to the local Jersey Fresh honey. Welcome to the Garden State, bro. Apiology is the bee’s knees!
The Bog Cranberry ShandyFruit Beer
Sometimes we’ll create a beer because we’ve always wanted to make a certain style, other times it’s to fill a hole in our lineup, but what happens when we’re making our Cranberry Wheat and accidentally add too much cranberry making it too tart? We embrace it and turn it into a Shandy. What was supposed to be a one-off batch has turned into one of our top-selling and sought after beers. The Bog has become the definitive South Jersey summer beer, a tart cranberry wheat beer blended with lemonade to create an uber-drinkable summer shandy. Designed to enjoy on those sweltering days, this beer is light and refreshing while still packing tons of flavor.
Turtle GutSour - American Wild Ale
Subtle earthy funk, malty sweetness and sharp acidity combine to give Turtle Gut its distinctive profile. Achieved by a quick souring with Lactobacillus before being fermented with our house Saccharomyces strain, then allowed to get funky with a hefty dose of Brettanomyces for a few months, Turtle Gut was our first venture into the world of mixed fermentations – and was pretty much the beer that kicked off our whole sour facility. Keeping the acidity in the more approachable range and letting Brett’s funk play a contributing part rather than taking center stage, our first born sour aims to please seasoned sour beer drinkers as well as the curious beer drinker who doesn’t yet know they’re a sour beer fan.
Anniversary Ale 6.0IPA - Imperial / Double
Since 2011, CMBC has been brewing your favorite beers, and as a gift, we’ve crafted a hoppy, juicy, and crushable brew as a reward to our faithful fans. A ridiculously drinkable Double IPA, our Anniversary Ale 6.0 is an unequaled offering, with generous hot-side additions of Nelson Sauvin and Zythos as well as a double dry-hopping of Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Eukanot to the tune of four pounds per barrel. Brewed with a heavy-handed portion of wheat and oats, you can expect a soft, pillowy body with a restrained bitterness, yet supplying a rich and enticing aroma. With notes of pineapple, melon, and ripened stone fruits on the nose and a subtle citrus zest on the finish, Anniversary Ale 6.0 is the ideal brew to toast in honor of CMBC’s 6th anniversary.
CorrosionSour - Ale
Sour. IPA. Boom. A beer geek’s’ dream beer. Bitter and sour, two flavor profiles that more often clash then complement, are brought together in a harmonious blend via the guiding nature of ample amounts of Citra and Centennial on the dry hop. Opening up with a huge nose of fresh citrus and grapefruit, then hitting the palate up front with firm bitterness, before giving way to back of the tongue acidity, the dance goes on until you’re left wanting more.
Geek Out 4.0Belgian IPA
Next stop on our Geek Out journey is a Belgian IPA, perfect for summer drinking. Geek Out 4.0 has a light body, an expressive Belgian yeast presence, and an enticing aroma. Thanks to a two-pounds-per-barrel dry hopping regime comprised of Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo, and Wakatu, Geek Out 4.0 is a beer truly worth geeking out over.
