Cape May IPA

The American IPA named for America’s Oldest Seaside Resort, Cape May IPA is loaded with floral and citrus notes, well-balanced with a zesty finish. A West Coast-style IPA brewed in the heart of the East Coast, it’s the beer that’s Crafted on the Cape.

Fun fact: Cape May IPA is the first beer we ever brewed, the first beer we ever sold, and, in all likelihood, the first beer of ours you ever drank!

Coastal Evacuation

Coastal Evacuation — it's a phrase that's everywhere at the Jersey Shore. This West Coast-style Double IPA is as big and bold as hurricane season itself, with a Centennial-forward, brazen blend of hops serving up hints of orange citrus and honeydew melon. It's time to evacuate. Are you prepared?

Fun fact: This brew got its start as our Centennial IPA back in 2011.

Always Ready

Cape May is home to the Coast Guard, so we salute those who are Always Ready with a juicy Hazy Pale Ale. With the addition of wheat and oats for a medium body and with brilliant aromas of tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, and citrus zest, this lush hop-bomb is Always Ready.

Fun fact: Semper Paratus — “Always Ready” — is the motto of the Coast Guard, and we’ve used that as both the name and concept of the brew.

Cape May White

Cape May White is brewed with orange and lemon peels, coriander, grains of paradise, and our favorite Belgian Witbier yeast. Fruity esters up-front with an easy-drinking finish yields a traditional Belgian-Style Wheat Ale brewed in the heart of the East Coast.

Fun fact: This draft-only brew began its life known as Great Wit Shark.

Stay tuned next month as we unveil an exciting addition to the core four – or, should we say, core five – lineup. Cheers to a year filled with remarkable brews and unforgettable moments!
