HAMMONTON – Effective September 22, 2023, Kramer Beverage has acquired Cape Beverage Distributing, the exclusive state-wide wholesaler of Cape May Brewing Company. This acquisition will provide them with Cape May Brewing’s award-winning portfolio spanning our full eight-county territory, making them the largest craft beer distributor in New Jersey.
This strategic partnership marks a significant milestone for both companies and promises to bring an exciting array of craft beers to beer enthusiasts and consumers. Cape May Brewing Company has gained widespread recognition for its commitment to producing exceptional craft beers that combine innovation with respect for tradition.
“Cape May Brewing has done an incredible job growing its portfolio of brands, and they have become a beer enthusiast favorite, not only in Cape May County but throughout the entire state,” says Mark Kramer, President of Kramer Beverage.
Cape May Brewing Company has grown to be one of the most innovative and fastest-growing breweries on the East Coast, making it the largest craft brewery in New Jersey. They have built a reputation for crafting exceptional beers that combine creativity, quality, and a deep passion for brewing. Cape May Brewing has won numerous accolades for both the brewery and beer.
“New Jersey’s largest craft brewery belongs with New Jersey’s largest beer wholesaler,” says Brendan Dalton, Vice President and General Manager of Kramer Beverage. “It’s a good fit for both of us. Cape May brews great quality beer that New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware consumers have come to love.”
Retailers can look forward to purchasing Cape May Brewing Company’s signature brews, including their iconic IPA, award-winning sour ales, and seasonal releases beginning next week.
