These days, the Cape May news seems to be all about beer. Aside from the two festivals; the Craft Beer and Crab festival two weeks ago, and the Brew Fest this week – both at the Emlyn Physick Estate hosted by MAC, The Cape May Brewing Company has been in the news. First, they got a coveted status as a Jersey Fresh product for their honey porter, made with Cape May honey. Second, they’ve been in the news for their new beer brewed in honor of Pope Francis’ visit – You Only Pope Once or YOPO a pale hoppy beer designed to go with Argentine beef.
In our other hoppy news, Historic Cold Spring Village will soon be giving the Cape May Brewery some competition. Anne Salvatore (and her husband Dr. Joe Salvatore) are re-erecting an 1804 century barn. They have their permits from the State and are planning on brewing historic beers like spruce beer made with spruce sprigs and honey porter. If you drive by the village, you can see the barn going up near Seashore Road.
