Please be mindful of your personal belongings at all times. Cape May Brewing Company is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.


While we normally encourage you to bring your pets with you while you visit our Brewtanical Garden, this event is expected to be particularly busy, and vastly different from most other events in this space. It could be overwhelming to even the best pups, so we ask that you leave your pets at home if you plan to attend the event. There are no dogs permitted at Pick of the Batch.

If you plan to travel between the two, you must consume or dispose of your alcohol before leaving each space. You may be asked to hand over your alcohol if you are found in violation of the above. Guests found to be impaired by alcohol or other substances will be removed from the event without refund and may face prosecution.
