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!
Cape May IPA NitroIPA - American
Our flagship beer with a twist. Served on nitro, you’ll notice a creamier and fuller mouthfeel, with the bitterness seemingly toned down due to the lack of carbonation. Very much the same beer at heart, but with a refreshing spin, this is a decidedly hoppy and slightly bitter American IPA. We load it with a blend of hops that provide floral and citrus notes, focusing on the quintessential American west coast hop profile. Which has become our style, this India Pale Ale emphasizes the hop aroma and flavor, while muting the hop bitterness by back loading the hop additions. Dry hopped with almost a pound per barrel, the hops come bursting through – encapsulating your senses to the point where you’re not sure where the rest of the pint went by the time you’ve put down your glass. You should’ve just ordered two.
King Porter StompPorter - Baltic
The smooth notes of natural chocolate in King Porter Stomp are in perfect syncopation with the five different malts that provide the bass line of this robust beast. Medium-bodied with a chocolate aroma, King Porter Stomp is smooth as jazz.
Mop Water 5-Spiced AleSpiced / Herbed Beer
CMBC’s Chief Mop Man mandated a beer brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and a s-load of real vanilla. Combining these spices with the flavors of German malts creates a brown ale perfect for cool autumn evenings and bitter winter nights.
Apple PieFruit Beer
For the past few years, if you stopped by the Tasting Room on Thanksgiving Eve, you may have been able to catch our Apple Pie. One of our favorite One-Offs, we take our beloved Apple Bomb and infuse it with the spices from our favorite fall classic, Mop Water. Since the One-Off keg is usually kicked in record time, we’ve since decided to treat you to an entire batch of this delectable holiday favorite. That’s right: 60 kegs of this spicy, apple-y treat.

From the boil to the dry hop, the hops blend in City to Shore hits all the right notes and tickles your taste buds. The sexy hops in this Double IPA bring a wave of citrus, grapefruit, and other exotic fruits to your face. Not as dry as our usual hop-bombs, we leave a touch more of the body behind to being out the juicier hop profile.
Fresh Brewed Coffee StoutStout - Other
We take our dark, slightly sweet, and full-bodied stout and condition it on locally-roasted coffee from Avalon Coffee. A complex grain bill of pilsner, carafa, caramunich, roasted barley and oats make up the heart of Fresh Brewed Coffee Stout, which pairs perfectly with the soft nutty and cocoa notes of Avalon’s Latin American-leaning house blend. Whether consumed as a delightful dessert beer or an arousing breakfast beer, Fresh Brewed Coffee Stout is one of our favorites.
Tide Table Pale AlePale Ale - American
Designed to bridge the gap between a classic American Pale Ale and the haze-crazed juice bombs out there, Tide Table fits the bill and then some. At 5.2% ABV, you’ll be able to give it several rounds and not get knocked out, and, thanks to a restrained grain bill, the boatload of Citra and Ekuanot hops do all the talking. Aromas of papaya and mango hit you up front, then the sudden sensation of walking through an orange grove at harvest time accents the fruits on the nose. High tide or low tide, this is one table you’ll set time and again.
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.
Cranberry Wheat with OrangeFruit Beer
Thanks to the tartness of the cranberries, Cranberry Wheat with Orange is crisp and snappy, yet it’s fruity and zesty due to the addition of sweet orange peel. A harmonious blend of fruits and beer, our Cranberry Wheat with Orange is pink in color with a tart finish, with the cranberries taking center stage, charming you with a refreshing finish to this approachable autumn ale.
Harvest AleSaison / Farmhouse Ale
Harvest Ale is something of a beer/wine hybrid. Beginning its journey with a simple Saison grain bill, Harvest Ale is brewed with a generous helping of Hallertau Blanc. These hops have a gentle, earthy bitterness with loads of white wine and grape-like flavors to them, and, when paired with a Saison, the beer takes on a winelike profile. Towards the tail end of fermentation, a large addition of Merlot must yields a juicy yet dry finish to the beer. The grape juice has a beautifully rich flavor to it, with the more delicate aromatics being preserved thanks to a late-addition secondary fermentation. Is it a wine? No. Harvest Ale is distinctly a beer — but at first sip, you’ll be asking yourself why you haven’t had anything like this before.
King Porter Stomp NitroPorter - Baltic
Originally brewed for the Exit Zero Jazz Festival — is everything you love about the original, only smoother and silkier. The assertive chocolate presence is still forward, with the natural chocolate in perfect syncopation with the five different malts that make up the bass line of this robust beast, its medium body more like a chocolate milkshake. Original or on Nitro, King Porter Stomp is an adventurous brew that’s as satisfying and complex as your favorite toe-tapping jazz tune.
Three PlowsIPA - American

Cape May IPLLager - IPL (India Pale Lager)
Cape May IPL is a delicately-balanced mashup of two distinct styles: all of the crispness of a Pilsner, but bursting with the fruits and bright citrus aroma of your favorite IPA. With a massive hop bill featuring Bravo, Citra, Nelson Sauvin, and Hallertau Blanc, Cape May IPL is cold fermented at lager temps and keeps a touch of sweetness on the finish to tie everything together.
