A Union of Two New Jersey Craft Brewers

We are excited to announce our plans to acquire the assets of fellow New Jersey craft brewer, Flying Fish Brewing Company. This acquisition represents the union of our two brands – ones that charted the course for craft brewing in New Jersey with a shared foundation of entrepreneurial spirit, strong local pride, passion for innovation, and a deep appreciation for brand fans.

The acquisition is a strategic investment for us and will significantly increase our company’s manufacturing and warehousing space; boost annual production capacity; and add manufacturing capabilities to support the expansion of our product portfolio.

“This is a massive milestone for both Cape May and Flying Fish, who we’ve long admired as a true pioneer of craft brewing in the Garden State since its founding in 1995,” says CEO and Co-founder Ryan Krill. “We are thrilled to expand our product portfolio and are approaching this acquisition with a focus on our core values, passion for brewing, and commitment to serving our customers with the highest quality brews."

As part of the agreement, Flying Fish will continue to be distributed by its wholesale distributor partners. As for Cape May – we will continue to operate at our existing location in New Jersey, utilizing the Cape Beverage Distributing network throughout the Garden State and wholesale distributor partnerships in Pennsylvania and Delaware.

“We are excited for these new opportunities, and grateful for the teams and fans of both brands who have supported the New Jersey craft beer community over the years,” says Krill. “This may be a brand-new chapter in our company history, but it’s one that is rooted in the same values that have driven our commitment to quality, people, and refreshing brews since our founding in 2011.”
