Cape May Brewing Company

Cape May Brewing Company

In July 2011 we found our home here at the Cape May Airport, excitedly purchased our forklift, and delivered our first keg of Cape May IPA to Cabanas Beach Bar and Grill. Since then we’ve proudly brewed all our beers here, crafting balanced and flavorful ales and lagers for thousands of happy locals and visitors. Our taproom is the largest and most accessible in the state. While many production breweries are only open a few hours per week, we are open every day from 12-8pm for tours and tastings. We’d love for you to stop by!

Carton Brewing

Carton Brewing

In the seashore community where they were born and raised, the Carton boys found a turn-of-the-century red brick warehouse and adapted it to accommodate a state-of-the-art Newlands Systems 15 barrel brew house. 6 E. Washington Avenue was turned into an independent craft brewery and their hats were in the ring. Applying a passion for stimulating flavor to inspiration found all around them, they set about their goal: to make tasty beer in the place their tastes were formed.

Lunacy Brewing Company

Lunacy Brewing Company

Every Friday and Saturday, the brewery opens for educational tastings that combine the owner’s love of craft beer with a friendly, social, casual gathering of people from all over and from all walks of life. This is how beer and brewing was meant to be enjoyed. Conversation, meeting new people, making new friends, and enjoying an atmosphere that’s more like hanging out at a friend’s house than sitting in a bar. No sports playing on the TV. No loud bands to talk over. Just good beer, good people, and good times.
