Looking for Something to Do in Cape May? Last week end we checked out the Cape May Brewing Company and took a tour and tasted some of the local brews. The Brewery was packed with Labor Day travelers and we had a great time. Here’s what you can expect when you come hang out, a small brewery and tour, 4-4 ounce tastings of the great beer. They have a food tent set up back and the best thing is that you can bring you well behaved “leashed” pooch along to check out the beer and food. They also have a great selection of Cape May Brewing Company t-shirts, hats and other gear, or you can purchase one half gallon growlers to go. We especially enjoyed the Centennial IPA which has become the First Award Winning Beer from the Cape May Brewery.
Ryan Krill: “We are a microbrewery located in South Jersey. We are a microbrewery in Cape May County serving South Jersey. Our beers are made in small batches and are hand crafted with the finest ingredients. We are just a small team, in a small warehouse, who share the same vision to make the finest quality beer possible. We began using a 12-gallon brewing system, and then stepped up to a 45-gallon system. We are expanding again to a 186-gallon system. One hundred eighty-six gallons of beer may sound like a lot, but it’s really only a drop in the bucket when you compare it to more established microbreweries. ”

Last March at our first beer festival, we won first place for best India Pale Ale (IPA) for our Centennial IPA. It was our first award for us and we were just floored. There were 19 other beers from very large and well-established microbreweries from all over the country and the judges chose us in a blind taste test. It was the kind of thing that just gives you butterflies.
We are a small team of three: Bob, Chris & Ryan. We all recognize that Cape May is a very special place and offers something very unique.
