Cape May Tap Takeover/Funkfest Kickoff Event
Thursday, November 5th – 5 PM
The whole gang from Cape May Brewing Company will be here, including the brewers themselves. Featured beers will include Turtle Gut (American wild ale), Harvest Ale (Saison with merlot grape juice added), City to Shore (Double IPA), #IKWYDLS (I know what you did last shandy, Fall spiced shandy).
Then on to the star of the show, made especially for Funkiest, the Cape May Funky Firkin where Turtle Gut will be brewed with cold pressed coffee. A firkin is a old style, gravity dispensed keg that has little to no carbonation and is served at cellar temperature. Adding cold pressed coffee to beer is a new trend in the industry and Funky Firkin is Cape May Brewing Company’s first foray into this kind of brew.
In addition to the list above, select drafts from the FunkFest draft list will be available.

What the Funk? Fest Tap List:
Ichtegem Grand Cru Flemish Red Ale – Dark ruby brown color with dark cherries and a hint of vinegar on the nose. Slight tartness with a berry like fruitness and woody notes from the oak barrel. This unique style of beer is brewed as two separate beers that are blended together to form the final product. One beer is brewed to be aged in oak barrels for two years, with the oak, oxygen and naturally occurring microflora altering its flavor until it is blended with a sweet young beer used to balance the beer to the brewer’s specifications. Nutty, malty, with a dark cherry tang.
Bruery Terreux Sour in the Rye American wild ale brewed with substantial amount of rye malt. The character of the rye asserts itself with clove and pepper in the aroma and flavor, and contributes a full body not generally found in sour beers. Pleasantly sour with notes of tart cherry, rustic earth and vanilla notes from a year-plus of barrel aging.
Hitachino Anbai Anbai literally means “Salty Plum”. Hitachino Nest White Ale infused with locally grown green sour plums and finished with a pinch of Japanese Sea Salt (moshio). Sour & bitter, but very drinkable with a subtle saltiness.
Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnof Berliner Style Weisse w/ Oats. Berliner Weisse is a cloudy, low alcohol white beer soured with lactobacillus culture that dates back to the 1600s. Bayrischer Bahnof’s version is a more mellow interpretation of the style with a balance of tart, fruit, and sweetness with lactic tartness in the finish.
Funk Brewing Company Citrus IPA Balanced and sophisticated IPA with a massive American citrusy hop profile with huge flavors and aromas of grapefruit, blood orange, pine, passion fruit, mango and pink guava
Wild Brewing Co. Lavain known as “Sourdough” in England, this beer uses 58 year old sourdough culture, brettanomyces and oak barrel fermentation combine to produce a gently rounded beer with a fruity sourness.
Brasserie de Silly – Silly sour 13% Dark saison mixed with 87% soured ale. Approachable Belgian sour with green apple notes
Goose Island Bourbon County Barleywine 2014 Aged in barrels that were once home to Kentucky bourbon and later the renowned Bourbon County Stout. A traditional English-style barleywine that showcases the intricacies of the previous barrel denizens oak, charcoal, tobacco, vanilla and the signature bourbon heat.
Spellbound Brewing Palo Santo Porter An all-time Keg favorite and recent GABF silver medal winner in the wood/barrel ageing category. Spellbound’s Porter aged with palo santo or “Holy wood” to bring out rich chocolate, vanilla and coconut flavors. We liked this beer before it was cool, how hipster of us…
Cape May Funky Firkin When the guys at Cape May Brewing Co heard about our 1st What The Funk?Fest they said they’d come up with something good, and did they ever. So for #2 why not make it a tradition. So enjoy a one of a kind Cape May firkin, crafted just for us.
Cape May – Turtle Gut Subtle earth FUNK, SUPER APPROACHABLE, A GREAT INTRODUCTION TO SOURS. If you don’t know that you like sour beers, start with this. Think Fischer–Price my first sour
Captain Lawrence- Golden Delicious Another all time Keg favorite. An American style tripel, dry hopped with Amarillo hops and aged in applejack brandy barrels from one of the countries oldest distilleries.
