We're very thankful for new beers on tap! 'Bo Chaser, an American Pale Ale using
Bravo and Simcoe hops, has been pairing extremely well with our IPA #2!  Blizzard
Lights, our Gruit, which debuted as a ten gallon batch, is back and better than
ever, just in time for the holidays! And last but not least our Dunk’s Plan
Dunkelweizen has a perfect balance of bready malt and banana!  All available in
our tasting room.

Cape May

Cape May Brewing Co. is celebrating the holidays with Boughs of Barley 2017: an
Abbey-style Belgian Dark Ale with candi syrup and orange peel, aged in Cognac
and Kentucky Bourbon barrels. Flavors of plums, grapes, toffee, and caramel are
balanced with notes of apricots, cloves, and a floweriness from the Saison yeast.
The bourbon variant brings vanilla and charcoal, while the cognac has prunes and
sherry. Get some soon -- or it'll be gone before you
know it

Cricket Hill

The 12 days of Christmas variety pack, featuring one of each of our bottled beers,

Belgian Tripel is rich with aromas and flavor of spice, banana, clove and cherry
from the beer and vanilla and bourbon overtones from the oak barrels.  Visit the
brewery:   Monday – Thursday 4 – 6 PM, Friday 5 – 8 PM, and Saturday 1 – 5 PM.
