Cape May, NJ – As the first in a series of six-new-beers-in-six-weeks, Cape May Brewing Company is unleashing its Citra Pale Ale on the world this Thursday, February 19.
“Picture walking through a California orange grove at harvest time,” says CMBC’s head brewer Brian Hink of the beverage’s sensory impact. “Or the mist you get when you peel back an orange.”
Dry-hopped with citra, arguably the buzziest beer flower on the market, the brew is 5.5% ABV, very dry, slightly sweet, light-bodied, and capable of turning cynics into craft beer enthusiasts.
And, as always, it’s fresh. “A beer that was made in California… how does that get to you?” asks CMBC co-owner Chris Henke. “It sits in a warehouse before sitting on a train. Our beer is made right here. That’s what makes it different, and supremely drinkable.”
Come get your Spring on at CMBC’s tasting room, open every day between noon and 8pm. For more information on tours, taps, and tastings visit capemaybrewery.com or call (609) 849-9933.
About Cape May Brewing Company:
Once upon a time, twenty-something Ryan Krill earned a six-figure salary working in finance and real estate development in Manhattan, while his college roommate, Chris Henke, designed satellites. During a summer weekend at the Jersey shore, they brewed a batch of beer with Ryan’s dad that wasn’t half bad. “Should we open a brewery?” Ryan asked, only half-serious. But, by the following year, the three guys had secured a hangar at Cape May Airport where they concocted a makeshift brew system and honed their beer-making skills. In 2011, they started with one client. Today, there are nearly 200 bars in Jersey and Pennsylvania proudly serving the guys’ award-winning recipes. And CMBC’s fearless leaders have never looked back.
