5th Annual Cape May Craft Beer & Crab Festival

Fun Activities in Cape May, NJ

Published on August 01, 2016

Though you’re more likely to see a bottle of fine wine around The Queen Victoria or get recommendations from Anna Marie or myself on what wines to bring to which Cape May restaurant, we’re not disappointed with Cape May’s growth in the craft beer industry these past few years or the wonderful festivals it’s brought to our seaside resort.

In its fifth year, the Cape May Craft Beer & Crab Festival, has attracted the attention of beer enthusiasts across the country as they make their way to Cape May each August for a wonderful selection of craft beer from local and regional breweries. I’m pretty sure the inclusion of crab and other summer BBQ favorites doesn’t hurt the festival’s popularity either.

The festival is Saturday, August 6, 2016 on the grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate. This festival runs all day, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and has a variety of live entertainment from the circus to music performances. Feel the energy-inducing rhythm from Full Spectrum as they play a wide range of music – spanning Classic Rock to R&B. Thanks to the Cape May MAC for their sponsorship of this great event that helps highlight the enjoyable beers brewed along our shores.

The impressive selection of brews comes from Cape May Brewing Company, Tuckahoe Brewing Company, and Victory Brewing Company.

Admission is free though beverages and food have their own costs. Commemorative t-shirts will be available for purchase as well. Call 609-884-5404 with any questions or for more information.
