Boat Ramp Champ Returns

Cape May Brewing Company is proud to announce that they have renewed their collaboration with The Qualified Captain, an Instagram influencer and lifestyle brand in North Carolina, and have brought back Boat Ramp Champ for distribution this summer. It is available now throughout New Jersey, Delaware, and eastern Pennsylvania.

Boat Ramp Champ is a 5.5% ABV Helles Lager crafted alongside The Qualified Captain for a crisp, clean, light beer that makes the perfect complement to a day out on the water. 

Made with German hop Hallertau Mittelfrüh and Bohemian Lager yeast, Boat Ramp Champ has a gentle bitterness complimented by a malty sweetness and delicate aroma. It balances the best of malt, yeast, and hops for an easy-drinking, refreshing brew. 

Originally from South Jersey, brother and sister team Aaron and Lauren Stasiak grew up in Burlington County before making their way to North Carolina and founding The Qualified Captain together in 2016. They began by chronicling the outrageous and often hilarious mistakes that can occur on ramp and in the water and have since become a major force in the maritime community. 

Cape May Brewing Company has long been fans of The Qualified Captain’s Instagram, and CEO Ryan Krill is a boatsman himself, making this collaboration a great match for two shore-based companies focused on passion and quality. 

“Not only was this our first major beer collaboration, this was really our first collaboration with anyone,” shares The Qualified Captain founder Aaron Stasiak. “And what a great group of folks to collaborate and work together with. I feel blessed to have had this opportunity.”

The distinctive art style on the can represents the two brands, with Cape May Brewing Company founders Ryan and Bob Krill, and The Qualified Captain founders Aaron and Lauren Stasiak, represented alongside easter eggs of local Cape May scenery.

“The artwork on the can has been a huge hit,” Stasiak says. “I’ve had a lot of people tell me that the refreshing, crisp beer is so easy to enjoy on the hot days of summer. For the fans that have not had access to the beer, they are dying to try it.”

To celebrate this re-release, Cape May Brewing Company is hosting a launch party at Bird & Betty’s, a beloved Qualified Captain favorite, in Beach Haven, NJ on Saturday, June 25th at 6:30PM. Join the Cape May and Qualified Captain crew for an evening of Boat Ramp Champ and other Cape May beer, fun giveaways, and more.

Cape Beverage Distributing is proud to announce the addition of Fresno-based brewery Full Circle Brewing Company to its distribution partners. This partnership marks the first time that Full Circle beers have reached the New Jersey market.

Full Circle is committed to bringing a fresh voice to the industry through new techniques and ownership.

“Full Circle Brewing Co brings great liquid and fun packaging to the NJ market, including a variety four-pack! Besides excellent liquid, Full Circle’s creative approach of bringing together artists and craft beer enthusiasts helps their ‘Beertainment’ approach to craft beer shine brightly in a crowded craft space,” says Cape Beverage General Manager.

The team at Full Circle are invested in their community and operate as both a full-scale production craft brewery and live entertainment venue, including hosting headliner artists such as Alien Ant Farm and Kyle Gass in addition to events such as roller derby, craft nights, and art shows. 

“We are excited to partner with a premier distributor like Cape Beverage Co. to bring our California fruit-forward beer into the hands of New Jersey consumers,” says Full Circle CEO Arthur Moye. “As the fastest-expanding black-owned brewery in the nation, we believe that our balanced beers with unique packaging will truly stand out in the New Jersey marketplace.”

Cape Beverage will distribute Full Circle Brewing Company’s Captain Save a Hop (w/ Pineapple) West Coast IPA, Juicy New England-inspired IPA, and Illa Vanilla Milkshake IPA.

ABOUT FULL CIRCLE: In 2016, the oldest running brewery in the Central Valley met its new owners… Arthur Moye was a CPA with a passion for homebrewing before making a giant leap and selling his practice to acquire Full Circle Brewing Co. The rebirth of FCB was backed by a group of investors, all members of the community, many of whom banded together financially because they so strongly believed in our vision. The change of ownership resulted in rapid growth and rebirth for the brewery and allowed us to expand from a 7.5BBL brewhouse only producing draft beer to a 15BBL brewhouse producing a majority of packaged beer able to reach the consumer market throughout California.

Today, Full Circle Brewing Co. remains dedicated to the quality and flavor of our beers and you can taste the passion, commitment, and experience in every glass and can. We are not only breathing new life into this old brewery, but we are committed to reviving downtown Fresno and our own historic Chinatown. We love beer, we love live entertainment, we love Fresno, and we love this brewery!

ABOUT VON C: The von C family is part of the family that started C. Schmidt & Son brewing in 1860. Our grandfather, Carl von Czoernig, was the great-grandson of Christian Schmidt, who came to Philadelphia from Machstadt, Württemberg, in 1851, with the famous strain of lager yeast that made Schmidt’s so popular back in the day. Our father was a master brewer, our grandfather was a master brewer and so on, all the way back to the founding father of Schmidt’s. Brewing great beer in Philadelphia is in our blood. At one point in time, two out of three drafts that were poured in Philadelphia were Schmidt’s beer. To the Philadelphia tavern customer, Schmidt’s and beer were practically synonymous. Even though it was only distributed in 14 states, Schmidt’s was able to sell over 2 million barrels of beer a year to an incredibly loyal customer base. People remember Schmidt’s being the biggest and best beer brewed and served in Philly. von C Brewing Co. will not only be tapping into that history, but it will bring it back and make history of its own.

Voted Best New Brewery in PA., vonC is a 16,000 sq ft Brewery, with a 2,500 sq ft tasting room inside and a spacious 3,000 sq ft beer garden outside. vonC is located in Norristown Pa., the heart of Montgomery county. vonC’s tradition and history of brewing great beer in our area dates back six generations. The three brothers who started the brewery are the great-great grandchildren of Christian Schmidt, who started the Schmidt’s brewery in Philadelphia in 1860. 

Their brewing team includes the last Master Brewer of Schmidt’s Adam Brozzetti, and Their Brew Master Michael Froelich, and they are brewing and array of styles both deep in tradition and haze, ranging from the OG Pils “Philadelphia’s Legendary Lager” which is the family recipe handed down through six generations to their Walking on Clouds Hazy New England IPA, vonC is brewing beer as beer should be!
