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 is the longest running brewery in Fresno, and have been given a new life since 2016 thanks to owner and CEO Arthur Moye and a group of local investors. Since then, they have quickly expanded the brewhouse capacity and continue to bring their brews to new markets. 

“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. 

Additional products from the brewery will also come to New Jersey later this year.

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!

Introducing Big Storm Brewing Co.

Cape Beverage Distributing is excited to announce the addition of Florida-based brewery Big Storm to its distribution roster. This partnership will bring Big Storm from the Sunshine State to the Garden State, with Bromosa® Tangerine IPA, Wavemaker® Amber Ale, Tropic Pressure® Golden Ale, and Vodka Soda variety pack seeing distribution throughout New Jersey beginning February 14th, and Sunny Key Lime Wheat Ale coming to New Jersey later this year. 

“Big Storm has been in business since 2012 and has a great reputation,” shares Cape Beverage VP of Sales Bill Dillon. “Their unwavering commitment to creating high quality beer and to pushing boundaries in the craft brewery industry felt like a natural fit with our goal of bringing best-in-class brands to New Jersey. Given the fact a lot of people from New Jersey visit Florida, this makes them a great fit.”

Since opening in 2012, Big Storm has expanded its Florida footprint, acquiring Fat Point Brewing and Cape Coral Brewing in 2017 and Bradenton-based Darwin Brewing Co. late last year. It has four taprooms throughout the state, with a new venue opening in Ybor City. 

Big Storm is committed to reducing their carbon footprint as well. In partnership with Earthly Labs, Big Storm captures carbon dioxide from the brewing and distilling process to purify and reuse to carbonate and package beer, reducing emissions and creating even better tasting beer. 

“We are thrilled to launch statewide with Cape Beverage,” says Big Storm President & Partner LJ Govoni. “While we are very lucky to have outstanding relationships with distributors across the country, this partnership is uniquely special. Cape Beverage has shown they have an almost exclusive understanding of the nuanced differences that makes craft beer special and like us have service in their heart. As our company grows, we always prioritize the business culture of a prospective distributor and feel lucky to have found a team that so perfectly aligns their values with ours.”

Cape Beverage is delighted to welcome another brand to the team with a strong sense of place and an eye for innovation and quality products.

Bromosa® Tangerine IPA is a 7.0% ABV strong punch of tangerine flavor followed by a dry and hoppy finish that makes it approachable for both IPA and non-IPA fans.

Wavemaker® Amber Ale is Big Storm’s very first brew. At 4.9% ABV, it is malt-centric with minimal hop bitterness, making it highly drinkable year-round.

Tropic Pressure® Golden Ale is another easy-drinking brew that is steeped with hibiscus flowers for just the right amount of natural sweetness and a hint of cinnamon. At 4.4% ABV, it is best served cold as hail, with a color as warm as Florida sunshine.

Sunny Key Lime Wheat Ale is 4.5% ABV, and is a shandy-style beer created with Key lime puree from the Florida Keys and a matching aroma. It features a smooth taste and subtle malt character.  

Big Storm Vodka Soda Variety Pack includes their four flavors: Peach, Blackberry, Grapefruit, and Lemon-Lime, 4.5% ABV vodka-based brews made with real juice and sparkling water, which are produced through Big Storm’s Distillery arm.

Beginning Monday, February 14th, these brands from Big Storm will be distributed throughout New Jersey, with Sunny Key Lime Wheat Ale debuting in New Jersey later this year.
