When March hits, your car’s windshield is free of ice, and the weather starts to get just a bit warmer, you know that summer isn’t far behind. We’re gearing up for the season with a triple beer release for St. Patty’s Day Weekend: Friday, March 11th - Sunday, March 13th!
We also have lots of fun, festive activities in store (and some special Irish-inspired brews!) for the weekend. Check it out!
Premiering Friday, 3/11, is draft-only Cococabana, our 5.8% Coconut Pale Ale which is always a hit, the celebrated return of 4.5% Mexican-style Lager Tan Limes, and…of course, what would a St. Patty’s celebration be without Irish Potato, our 8.5% Imperial Dessert Ale?!
Brewed with an abundant amount of Sultana and Cashmere hops, Cococabana is a pale ale perfect for pairing with the oncoming spring weather. House-toasted coconut lends a gentle and complementary silky-smooth mouthfeel, with an enticing aroma showcasing these brilliant hops. The background notes of coconut are the perfect accompaniment for a springtime merengue or cha-cha.
Tan Limes is our Mexican-style Lager brewed with a touch of locally-sourced sea salt and a hint of Persian lime juice. Fresh and zesty, Tan Limes would be perfectly at home at your local cantina and is best paired with street tacos, brilliant sunshine, and close friends.
Irish Potato is our Irish potato candy-inspired Imperial Dessert Ale. We conditioned this decadent brew on house-toasted coconut and finely shaved cinnamon sticks, resulting in a beverage that is sweet, savory, and desserty—all in a can.
We’re going green in the Tasting Room with festive decor and some special CMBC St. Patty’s shirts for sale. The fun doesn’t stop there, though. We’ll have a variety of Irish-inspired one-off stouts to sample and enjoy, as well as a special St. Patty’s flight.
Our one-off Irish-inspired stouts going on tap throughout the weekend include:
- Irish Coffee (Irish cream-flavored Coffee Stout)
- Irish Potato Stout (can be layered with IP Cream Ale to make a black and tan!)
- Shamrock Shake (Spearmint/Vanilla stout)
- Irish Whiskey Stout (need we say more?!)
- Irish Soda Bread (raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel)
If you’re one of the lucky folks who kick one of our one-off kegs, you’ll get a free CMBC St. Patty’s shirt!
Starting today, Friday, March 11th, Cococabana is available now on draft exclusively in the Tasting Room for a limited time.
Irish Potato is also available now on draft and in 4-pack cans to-go in the Tasting Room while supplies last, and Tan Limes is available now in 6-pack cans to-go and on draft in the Tasting Room.
You can find Tan Limes in 12-packs or on draft throughout the region wherever Cape May brews are sold starting Monday, March 14th!
We can’t wait to see you, and don’t forget to dress for the occasion!
