It’s not to late to reserve for Saturday, August 5, for the Craft Beer and Crab Fest. Go to the beautiful grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate for an all-day festival featuring local craft beers to wash down favorite summer foods … steamed crabs, pulled pork, crab cakes, shrimp and hot dogs. There will be music all day, Jugglers, acrobats, and low-wire walkers from the Little Circus, and a crafts and collectibles show.
The music will begin at 11 A.M. And will feature The Honeyhawks, James Callio, Jake Tavill, Sean Preston, and the Quixote Project. Some of our local food purveyors will be Gaiss’ Market offering Bacon on a Stick, Crespella offering crepes, Eat Well with lobster rolls and grilled cheese, Executive Catering selling fish tacos, and Wahlburger offering hamburgers.
P.S. Suzie and I recently visited the Cape May Brewing Company with our niece and her fiance. It was a wonderful place to be and I even liked the beer, (and I don’t even like beer). I’d recommend the festival at the PhysickEstate for Saturday, and the Brewing Company for Sunday, after the beach. The owners of the Red Store in Cape May Point have opened a taco place next to the brewing company, so you can have some food to go with the beer.
I know that it’s early, but think about next September. Cape May’s first Harvest Brew Festival will be Saturday September 19th from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.. Lots of craft beers at the Physick Estate; with local food, local produce, local wine – and local talent for entertainment. (four local bands!) There will also be a farmers’ market, a crafts show, and activities for the kids.
The Harvest Brew Festival will also take place during the week-long celebration of gourmandize called the annual Food and Wine Festival (September 11th through 20th). This is our nineteenth year for the Food and Wine Festival, and it never fails to delight everyone who participates. You already know that Cape May is home to some of the best restaurants in New Jersey, and this week gives them a chance to show off. The MAC website will give you lots of information about a Lobster Bake Dinner, grape picking at Natali Vineyards, a Chocolate Lover’s Feast, a Beer Tasting luncheon, and dozens more. Call us today or go online to make your reservation for the gluttony gala in Cape May!
