This Cape May, NJ, ‘Fall Beer’ Named One of NJ’s Best
We've officially transitioned from summer to fall, and we all know Cape May county has a ton of great beer options and the various local breweries.
As the seasons begin to change, many people will also change the flavors of beer that they choose to drink. If you're looking to try some of the fall beers around, one Cape May county-based brewery has a great options for you, so good writer Laura DeSiena recently mentioned it among the best in the entire state of New Jersey at NJ Digest.
While it might not have the most appealing name, it sure does have an appealing taste.
The beer is called, Mop Water, from Cape May Brewing Company.
As New Jersey’s largest craft brewery, Cape May Brewing Company is returning its award-winning spiced ale to the tasting room this fall season. Don’t let the unique name deter you—this one-of-a-kind brew is inspired by CMBC’s Chief Mop Man, who tasked the brewery with crafting a beer that would be ideal for chilly fall evenings and harsh winter nights. As a fan-favorite, this brown ale combines German malts’ rich, bready flavor with warm autumn flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and a generous amount of real vanilla.
Mop Water is a 7.3% ABV and has a very solid 3.78 rating out of 5-stars on the popular app Untapped.
You can find this beer throughout both Cape May County and in New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, or order it on their website.
