Cape Beverage is pleased to announce the addition of another top-notch brewery to its roster: Pennsylvania’s Workhorse Brewing Company. This partnership will help bring Workhorse beers to the New Jersey market, with three core brands: New England IPA, West Coast IPA, and Golden Lager, and two seasonal brands: Cucumber Mojito and Prickly Pear Margarita, available throughout the state beginning August 2nd.
Continuing the growth and expansion of our sales team, this year we started looking for someone to take over Regional Sales Manager Tom LoBianco’s area. Lucky for us, Dan Moeri, fresh off his time with Founders, was eager for the chance to join our team.
“We were looking for someone to take Tom’s place, and that’s where Dan came in,” Sales Director Bill Zaninelli says. “He knows a lot of accounts and was already familiar with the area. He’s doing a great job– he jumped right in and was a great fit for our team.”
Tom first met Dan sometime between 2012 and 2014, before his time with us. “He was working at the time for The Stirling Hotel in Morris County. I worked for a Miller distributor then and would sell him beer for the restaurant. It’s funny, in this business, you never know who you will run into or be working with after being involved for so long. When Bill contacted me about Dan applying, it was a no-brainer to reconnect,” he says.
As for Dan’s work so far, Tom shares that he “picked up on everything immediately. His customer service skills and industry knowledge are total assets. He had contacts from working in the industry and was well-liked in the trade.” Dan has even excelled in opening up new accounts already: “He used his contacts to get us into Stage House in Scotch Plains as well as their Somerset location, and opened Oh Brian’s at the Hyatt Hills golf complex in Clark, replacing White Claw seltzer with Cape May Seltzer.”
(That’s right, folks. Our seltzers really are that good).
“I love working with him so far,” Tom says. “He’s doing a great job!”
Dan is personable from the moment you meet him, and we enjoyed getting a chance to talk with him this week about his journey so far.
When you’re looking for someone to fill a sales position, familiarity with our products goes a long way.
“Courtney has a lot of experience, having come to us from Evil Genius and spending a bunch of time with our Pennsylvania distributor, Origlio Beverage,” says Director of Sales Bill Zaninelli, “so, not only does she have a lot of experience in beer, she’s already very familiar with our products. She’s bubbly and full of energy, which is exactly what we need out there. She’s excited to kick some ass, and I’m sure she’ll be a great addition to our team.”
Welcome Courtney Moore!
