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 space at Cape May Airport where they concocted a makeshift brew system and honed their beer-making skills. They opened their doors in 2011 and started with one client. Today, there are over 300 accounts in Jersey and Pennsylvania proudly serving the guys' award-winning recipes. And CMBC's fearless leaders have never looked back.

Thanks for stopping by our tasting room and enjoying a tour and a pour. Did you know that Honey Porter uses Jersey Fresh honey and this beer is one of the only beers labeled in the state as Jersey Fresh, pretty cool huh? We hope you swing by again soon next time you're in the area. Cheers! -The CMBC Brew... More

We enjoyed our visit to Cape May Brewing Company. We didn't take the full tour. We just stopped in to check it out and try some of their beers. The place where you do the tastings is in a little bit of a weird location next to a bunch of other stores/businesses. That would be my only complaint. I wish... More

We're glad you were able to enjoy our beer garden as much as we do. Once the weather drops in temperature, we will have our fire pit burning throughout the day aka the perfect way to enjoy a tasting during the Fall months.

Cape May does nice job all around. From their selection of beers, to the atmosphere of their tasting room, to the new outdoor patio, it's a great place for a few beers.

2:00 on a Saturday afternoon we walk through for our little tour, and first there is a guy tapping beer on the right who has "some" of what they offer that you can get just in pints. No flights, no growler fills...those you have to go inside for. Ok, no problems. IF you can get in the door. The tapping... More

The Rio Grande airport complex houses not only the Aviation Museum, a diner, a soap factory outlet, etc.; it is home to the tasting room of the Cape May Brewing Company. The compulsory tour is fast, leading straight to the tasting room. You are given a sheet of paper with the beers available that day. You can choose a single... More

We came here twice on our trip to Cape May! They have lots of great beer to choose from, and several "craft sodas" as well. Really nice patio seating, and a bar inside.

We usually stop at the Cape May Zoo going to Wildwood or Cape May. This great Microbrewery will now be on our checklist. Located in the Cape May airport , good signage along the way.

Went on a overcast day which was a great decision. It was $10 to pick 4 beers/Soda with a souvenir glass (choice of 4). I loved the home brewed root beer. Absolutely delicious!

Very enjoyable little brewery located at the Cape May airport. You have to take a legally mandated "tour" that takes 2-3 minutes, then its into the tasting room to try out the brews. A nice broad selection, although some varieties are very limited in terms of taking home. It's pretty basic in design and decor but does the job. No... More
