Cape May

Cape May Brewing Company has an exciting new look! After six years of one-off
bottle designs, we've devised a cohesive look that speaks to what we stand for as
a company. Our new look evokes all of the great things about Cape May: the
breeze, the beach, and, of course, our beer! The new logo, badge, and website
are currently in use, with new bottle designs set to deploy over the next month.
CMBC has a new look, but we're still New Jersey Proud!



The Marshallville Wit is back on draft in the tasting room, and six packs are also
for sale. Persistent Illusion is also on tap for Memorial Day Weekend! This juicy,
dry hopped, Pale Ale is fermented with our house Farmhouse yeast strain, giving
it an Earthy complexity. The Mosaic, Belma, and Summer hops we use give it a
bright and fruity nose and taste. Peaches Table Sour will also be making its
comeback within the next few weeks.
