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.

Very good variety of beers. As they continue to grow in popularity, the current location is way to small. You guys are going to need to move, again, to an even larger location.

This is a very upbeat lively place with a terrific outdoor fire pit and tables. There is a wide selection of beers but only a few I would actually recommend. This brewery is nicer and has more to offer than the Cold springs one. A nice crowd and atmosphere.

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.

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.

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.
