Cape Beverage Distributing is proud to announce the addition of Pennsylvania-based brewery vonC Brewing Company to its distribution partners. This partnership marks the first time that vonC beers have reached the New Jersey market.
“Fresh on the scene, vonC Brewing Co. brings a long-standing history of brewing excellent liquid over six generations of family members,” says Cape Beverage General Manager. “Their beers lead into Cape Beverage’s stance of quality product first and foremost being put into our retailers’ stores and their customers’ hands.”
Since their grand opening in June of 2021 in Norristown, PA, vonC Brewing Company has been making waves in the Pennsylvania craft beer market. The three brothers who started the brewery are the great great grandchildren of Christian Schmidt, who started Schmidt’s brewery in Philadelphia in 1860. They brew an 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.
“With the help of Cape Beverage, we plan to continue to ride those waves into the New Jersey craft beer market in March,” says vonC Brewing Co. owner and partner Jay von Czoernig. “The team at vonC couldn’t be more excited to share their history and tradition with the NJ market, and feel they have found the perfect partner in Cape Beverage to make that happen.”
Cape Beverage will distribute vonC Brewing Company’s Walking on Clouds Hazy NEIPA, O.G Pils Legendary Philly Lager, and Vienna Style Lager.
Additional products from the brewery will also come to New Jersey later this year.
Beginning Monday, March 28th, these three brands will be distributed throughout New Jersey. For more information on vonC, see their website at https://voncbrewing.com.

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!
