Introducing Vault Brewing Company

Cape Beverage Distributing is thrilled to announce the addition of Yardley, Pennsylvania-based Vault Brewing Company to its distribution portfolio. Cape Beverage will begin distributing a number of different brands from Vault Brewing across most New Jersey retailers starting December 1st.

“We are extremely excited to add Vault Brewing and their 10 years of experience to our portfolio at Cape Beverage,” says Cape Beverage Brand Manager Chris Verderame. “Vault produces some of the best beers in the industry!”

Vault Brewing celebrated its 10-year anniversary this past October, and they have long been a staple brewpub in the region, known for not only their brews, but also their food and live entertainment. Their name pays homage to Yardley National Bank, which historically occupied the building the brewpub now resides in. What once was bank vaults of cash now proudly holds space for stainless steel beer tanks, which produce a range of different styles. 

“Vault Brewing Company is incredibly excited to be partnering with Cape Beverage,” says Vault Brewing Company Director of Operations Eric Leypoldt. “While we’ve had a presence in Central Jersey for a while now, this new partnership will allow us to expand to the north and south. Our brewery is situated only feet from the Delaware River, so we have tons of customers from New Jersey in our brewpub every week. Having representation throughout the entire state just makes so much sense for us.”

Cape Beverage looks forward to bringing yet another stellar craft beer brand to more New Jersey consumers. The full list of brands to be distributed include:

Teller Pilsner, a 4.9% ABV bold and unfiltered American Pilsner brewed simply with Pilsner malt, Saaz family hops, lager yeast, and local Yardley water for a straightforward and direct brew.

Of Hops and Clouds, a 5.5% ABV New England-style Pale Ale brewed with the all-star combination of Mosaic, Citra, and Amarillo hops with notes of pineapple and clementine up front as well as guava, mango, and lingering apricot. 

Five Cees, a 6.4% ABV IPA hopped with Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, and Citra with aromas of citrus and tropical fruit as well as notes of tangerine creamsicle and fresh cut grass.

Dead Cat Bounce, an 8.0% ABV Imperial IPA hopped with Citra and Idaho Gem, exhibiting luscious and sweet notes of juicy papaya and orange marmalade with a vivid and crisp piney finish. 

Bear Hug, a 6.0% ABV Oatmeal Stout that is silky smooth with subtle nutty and roasted notes combined with semi-sweet baker’s chocolate.

Public Offering, a 6.5% ABV New England IPA hopped with Strata, Sultana, and Mosaic with aromas of tropical fruits and a hint of dankness.

Beginning Thursday, December 1st, these Vault Brewing products will be distributed throughout most counties in New Jersey.

Introducing Grüvi

Cape Beverage Distributing is excited to announce the addition of its first non-alcoholic brand to its distribution portfolio: Grüvi. Cape Beverage will begin distributing three popular Grüvi brands to New Jersey retailers starting next month: Non-Alcoholic Juicy IPA, Alcohol-Free Dry Secco, and Alcohol-Free Bubbly Rosé. 

“Cape Beverage is very excited to add Grüvi to our portfolio as our first non-alcoholic offering,” says Cape Beverage Brand Manager Chris Verderame. “We can’t wait to spread their award winning products across New Jersey!”

Grüvi launched in 2019 as a family operation, committed to providing quality non-alcoholic beverages and fostering an inclusive community focused on health and wellness. They have quickly become a popular brand amongst consumers, and they even picked up a gold award for one of their non-alcoholic beer offerings at this year’s World Beer Cup.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Cape Beverage,” says Grüvi Founder & CEO Niki Sawni. “Their team truly understands brand building and will be a great partner as we introduce New Jersey to Gruvi’s delicious variety of alcohol free social beverages.”

Shifts in consumer behavior have changed alcohol buying habits, and non-alcoholic brands are on the rise. 

Many Americans have cut back or reduced alcohol consumption, and now over 30% of American adults do not consume alcohol. The non-alcohol category itself is expected to grow over 30% in the next few years; in fact, non-alcoholic wine grew nearly 40% in 2021.

Cape Beverage is proud to bring its customers a community-driven, non-alcoholic brand known across North America. 

Non-Alcoholic Juicy IPA keeps a hazy color and mouthfeel while delivering a taste of the tropics. Juicy IPA is packed with pineapple and nicely balanced with notes of citrus and a hint of fig.

Alcohol-Free Dry Secco is delicate, floral, and semi-dry with a touch of tartness. It’s also their most popular beverage option, and is completely gluten-free and sulfate-free. 

Alcohol-Free Bubbly Rosé is fruity on the nose and pours a light pink hue. Tiny, effervescent bubbles compliment notes of tart, green apple and fresh strawberry. Gluten-free.

Beginning today, Monday, August 1st, these Grüvi products will be distributed throughout New Jersey. For more information on Grüvi, events, and samplings from Cape Beverage Distributing, you can view our site here, or call (609) 759-2042.

Introducing Fishtown Iced Tea

Cape Beverage Distributing is thrilled to announce the addition of Rectified Spirits’ Fishtown Iced Tea to our brand portfolio. This flagship offering is a delicious ready-to-drink beverage that got its start as a popular to-go cocktail offering in Philadelphia during the height of the pandemic.

“We’re happy to have Fishtown Iced Tea on board with us here at Cape Beverage,” says Cape Beverage CEO Ryan Krill. “It has a great flavor—there’s a blend of four different spirits to enjoy alongside the pleasant, lemon tea flavors, making this brand stand out amongst a sea of single-spirit offerings.”

Designed to be poured over ice or enjoyed out of a cold can, Fishtown Iced Tea is a 9% ABV spirits-based hard tea crafted with vodka, tequila, rum, and triple sec. It will be available in 12-ounce cans throughout New Jersey starting Monday, July 11th. 

“We love the local story of this brand, and Rectified Spirits really nailed the spirit of the namesake cocktail with this canned, ready-to-drink version,” says Cape Beverage Marketing Director Alicia Grasso. “It’s been a hit with locals for years now, and we can’t wait for more people to enjoy it.”

Originally a cocktail invented at Interstate Drafthouse in Philly’s Fishtown neighborhood in 2012, Fishtown Iced Tea features a logo reminiscent of its early days as a mixture of spirits poured into a carton of Arctic Splash iced tea. The Rectified Spirits team used real tea extract and natural lemon flavor to replicate the iconic Arctic Splash flavors, and the can’s logo is designed by local Pennsylvania artist Jeff Kilpatrick. 

“Rectified Spirits, Fishtown Iced Tea, and Cape Beverage—three kindred independent spirits joining forces to bring our locally produced, fun and flavorful ready-to-drink canned version of Philly’s favorite, Fishtown Iced Tea, to our friends and neighbors in the Garden State,” says John Logan and Bob Ritchie of Rectified Spirits. “On the beach, on a boat, or in the backyard . . . we can’t help feeling that this is the start of something big!”

Beginning Monday, July 11th, Fishtown Iced Tea will be distributed throughout New Jersey in four-pack, 12-ounce cans. For more information on Fishtown Iced Tea, events, and samplings from Cape Beverage Distributing, you can visit our website at www.capebeverage.com, or call (609) 759-2042.
