"I plan to be here for a good, long time.”

Congrats, Noelle!

At Cape May Brewing Company and Cape Beverage, we really love promoting from within. It’s great to see a member of the Brew Crew who may have started at an entry-level job in the Tasting Room or in Packaging further their career by getting a job in the marketing department or moving up the chain to Cellarperson.

When Noelle Smuz began working in the Brewtique this past September, she was hoping to do exactly that.

“When I interviewed Noelle, I could tell she would do well in our company,” says Director of People Operations Christine Bry. “She has a calm demeanor, does not let herself get flustered — or at least does not show it –, and is great with personal interactions. Yes, she was enthusiastic about working here. Not a pest, but persistent — I can’t fault her for that!”

Congratulate Noelle on her promotion to Accounts Receivable and Credit Specialist for Cape Beverage!

Meet Cape Bev’s New Operations Manager… Justin Vitti!

He’s more than magic. He’s more than a mustache and a smile.

He’s a guy with a singular past that prepared him to be the new Operations Manager of Cape Beverage, with an accrued business acumen that only a background in sales, homebrewing, bartending, and distribution could possibly create.

That’s Justin Vitti: Pearl Jam fan, walking encyclopedic compilation of Harry Potter spells, and able to shove a nail through his septum.

Straight to the Pint has never formally introduced him to our readers. He’s sort of always existed as this force at Cape May Brewing Co., doing card tricks and ensuring that our beer gets to its final destination: your stomach.

Now, on the precipice of his new job, we wanted to get it down. Get it all down. Sit back, because Justin is known to tell stories. 

And we’re starting at the very beginning.

"I like that it’s a small business. It’s something cool from my hometown that’s grown into an awesome business.”

Meet Andrew!

Andrew Monastra has been our draft technician for almost four years, traveling around South Jersey, ensuring that the lines that serve our beer are squeaky clean, giving you the freshest and best-tasting beer possible.

“Andrew has a no-nonsense attitude that is very reflective in his work,” says Distribution Manager Justin Vitti. “When he first interviewed for the driver position, we left the room with a common thought ‘this guy just wants to get his job done’. Since then, he has grown and learned everything about being a well-rounded technician in the industry, including a full 3-day seminar covering all the ins-and-outs that even myself or Hank didn’t know to teach him. He is a crucial part of the Distribution Team’s spirit and morale.”

Meet Andrew!
