Cape May to Release Take Five Session IPA

cape may

Cape May, NJ – Cape May Brewing Company may be in the midst of a major expansion — their new 30-barrel brew house ships this week, and will be fully up and running in their new 15,000-square foot space at the Cape May Airport this spring — but this hasn’t slowed the brewing schedule at all.

As the fifth in a six-new-beers-in-six-weeks series, Cape May Brewing Company will release its Take Five Session IPA on Thursday, March 19th.

“I cannot wait for it,” says Brew Master Brian Hink. “As a session beer, it’s low in alcohol, only about four percent, but super hoppy. It’s the kind you down in two sips before thinking: ‘Where’d my beer go?’ It’s just that drinkable.”

A recent article in Outside magazine confirms it: session beers like the fruit-forward Take Five are having “a moment” because they have all of the flavor of brews with higher ABVs, but won’t leave you feeling foggy in the morning. It’s the reason they’re a popular choice among athletes who need to hit the gym after a night out. And a popular choice among non-athletes who’d rather “day-drink their faces off,” says Brian.

Whichever camp you fall into, you’re welcome at Cape May Brewing Company’s tasting room (1288 Hornet Road, Rio Grande), open from noon to 8pm everyday. For more information on tours and tastings, call 609-849-9933.

Then come get your spring on.

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.
