Description: Once upon a time, twenty-something Ryan Krill earned a six-figure salary...
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. In 2011, they 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.

Nice brewery in Cape May

Nice place to visit if you love beer. Take a guided or self-guided tour and sample with souvenir glass for only 10. Decent beer selection with a few stand outs. Try them all :)

I thought the location was kind of odd for a brewing co. Next to a mechanic of some sort and out of the way. When we went in we weren't really sure as to what to do, there weren't any signs posted that you must do the "self guided tour" first before sampling any brews. We bought 2 glasses that... More

We have gone here since they opened a few years ago, slightly off the beaten path down by the Cape May airport but worth the trip. They always have an assortment of favors to pick from and we always leave with our growlers full of our favorite brew for only $10! The staff of very friendly, the only downfall is... More

Great place if you like good beer tasting and something fun to do when on vacation in the area. Found it last year by chance and couldn't wait to go back this year

This is definitely a great place to hang out with friends. The beer is great and they have lots of choices. It does get pretty crowded. The bartenders were nice and helpful if I had any questions about the beer.

Never had this beer before but what a great discovery. Beer is fantastic. Staff is a lot of fun. After you do your self guided tour its tasting time. You buy a glass for $10-$13 then get 4 four ounce tastings of your choice. PS its more than 4 ounces. Its located in an industrial park right off Cape May... More

Love this place we go every time we are in the area. After the tour, we do some sampling, get a pint or two and usually leave with a growler of something we love.

I am always open to learning while vacationing. We had vouchers as part of our vacation package which afforded us to choose this activity and the privilege to redeem such for souvenir glasses ($10 value). The Cape May Brewery is open daily from 12pm-8pm. When we went on Tuesday, June 9th, there was definitely a 'casual bar, after work' feel... More

If you are visiting Cape May and like beer, you have to stop by the Cape May Brewing Company. Amazing beer and even more amazing staff! Super friendly and super laid back atmosphere. We can't wait to head back again!
