Cape May Beer

cape may beerThese 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.beer cape may

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 cape may beermade with spruce sprigs and honey porter. If you drive by the village, you can see the barn going up near Seashore Road.

Come visit us at Leith Hall now that the evenings are cooler and the days are still beach-weather warm

Cape May Craft Beer and Crab Festival

Cape May Craft Beer and Crab Festival

 Cape May’s Craft Beer and Crab Festival hit town last Saturday. The day was gray and Cape May Craft Beer and Crab Festvalintermittently rainy – not ideal beach weather. So lots of people showed up on the lawn at the Physick Estate. There was a long (but fast-moving) line for crabs and crab cakes under the striped tent, and lots of covered seating nearby. There was a small crafts fair – I particularly liked the Guatemalan pottery – pony rides, and a teensy-weensy circus appropriately called the Tiny Circus.

 

The next big food festival will be in September. The Cape May Food and Wine Celebration will include special dinners, winery tours, Scotch whiskey tastings, and talks by famous chefs. Call us for reservations now Cape May Craft Beer and Crab Fesitvalso you can get in on the fun. Celebration tickets are available from the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities (MAC).Cape May Craft Beer and Crab Festival
