Exciting news for South Jersey Beer Fans! On April 6th, Cape May Brewing Company issued a press release yesterday announcing that they have partnered with Weyerbacher Brewery of Easton, Pa, to develop an India Pale Lager, Paradise 160.
Paradise 160 is a high-octane India Pale Lager inspired by the fact that 160 miles separate Cape May, NJ, from Easton, PA. The two brewing powerhouses have taken that basic style and dry-hopped it with two particularly exotic hops varieties: Wakatu from New Zealand and Hallertau Blanc from Germany. It is great to see that South Jersey is gaining serious traction in the beer world.
“As we move into our sixth year, this is a really exciting time for us,” says CMBC co-owner and president Ryan Krill. “Partnering on our first collaboration with such a well-established brewery as Weyerbacher means that we’ll be able to gain some of their knowledge of the brewing process and they’ll benefit from our innovation and dedication to variety. “And we get to brew a beer we’ve always wanted to brew with a brewery we’ve always looked up to.”
Paradise 360 will make its debut at Chickie’s and Pete’s in Egg Harbor Township on May 18th. Representatives from both CMBC and Weyerbacher will be in attendance, and revelers will be afforded the chance to sample the beer and meet the brewers. The following day, May 19th, both Cape May Brewing Company, and Weyerbacher Brewery will be hosting release parties — one at CMBC’s Tasting Room at 1288 Hornet Road in Cape May, and the other at Weyerbacher’s Tap Room at 905 Line Street in Easton, PA.Kudos to Ryan, Jimmy, and the rest of the CMBC family for again getting the spotlight shone on South Jersey!
