Cape May, NJ– Cape May Brewing Company, the Jersey Shore’s premier local brewery, is pleased to announce their second Pint Night of the year on Thursday, March 23, in their Tasting Room at 1288 Hornet Rd. in the Cape May Airport. As part of their commitment to being a good neighbor by supporting local charitable causes, from 5 to 8pm, $1 from each $5 pint will be donated to the Cape May County Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities.
“MAC is a Cape May institution,” says president and co-founder of CMBC, Ryan Krill. “They’ve been dedicated to preserving and restoring the historic gems in Cape May.”
Since its founding in 1970, MAC has led the charge of historic restoration in Cape May. Not only dedicated to restoration, MAC promotes the interpretation and cultural enrichment of greater Cape May for its residents and visitors. They offer a year-round calendar of tours and special events, serving nearly 300,000 people each year. MAC’s sponsorship of cultural and heritage tourism has helped transform Cape May from a summer beach resort into the country’s leading Victorian-themed destination.
MAC has multiple restoration projects to their credit, including the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate, creating an operating Victorian house museum with a Carriage House, gallery, and cafe. They’ve turned the iconic Cape May Lighthouse, built in 1859, into a maritime museum and working lighthouse. Their restoration of the 1942 WWII Lookout Tower has created a WWII museum and memorial to local veterans, as well as lending its name to one of CMBC’s most popular brews, Tower 23, a soured Berliner Weisse.
“Cape May Brew Co. helps MAC achieve its mission by educating through beer, with brews named after local landmarks and historic figures, such as Sawyer’s Swap, Tower 23, and Concrete Ship,” says MAC Director Michael Zuckerman. “It’s such a great way to spread the word about Cape May’s history. We appreciate all Cape May Brew Co. does to promote the Cape May region in this creative way.”
Cape May Brew Co. recognizes the huge impact that MAC has on the region, bringing to the area numerous tourists who are searching for more than a beach day.
“Throughout the year, MAC holds numerous events that bring over 300,000 people to Cape May,” Krill says. “We get a huge bump from the added population, so we wanted to find some small way of saying thanks to this deserving non-profit organization.”
Cape May Brew Co. will be serving a special $5 flight of brews that night — Dr. Physick’s Flight — containing their brews with close ties to Cape May: Concrete Ship, referring to the sunken SS Atlantus off Cape May Point; Turtle Gut, remembering a Revolutionary War battle just east of the brewery; and their flagships Tide Table Pale Ale and Cape May IPA, both of which can be found on tap throughout Cape May and beyond.
In addition, the Cape May MAC will be collecting further donations throughout the evening while educating revelers about their mission, and the night will be used as a volunteer drive for the upcoming year. MAC volunteers assist the organization during their three outdoor festivals — the Cape May Hops Festival in late spring, the Craft Beer and Crab Festival in August, and the Harvest Brew Fest in the fall. In addition, volunteers receive numerous benefits and discounts throughout the year.

About Cape May Brewing Company:
Once upon a time, 20-something Ryan Krill earned a six-figure salary working in finance and real estate development in Manhattan, while his college roommate, Chris Henke, designed commercial satellites. During a summer weekend at the Jersey shore, they brewed a batch of beer with Ryan’s dad. “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 hundreds of accounts in Jersey and Pennsylvania proudly serving the guys’ award-winning recipes. And CMBC’s fearless leaders have never looked back.
