CAPE MAY – Cape May Brewing Company has been named New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program’s (NJMEP’s) Manufacturer of the Year in the Start-Up/Young Manufacturing Company Category, according to a press release.

“This is a huge honor,” said co-owner and president Ryan Krill. “We love it when our beer wins awards, but there’s something special about winning as a company rather than for our product. It means that we do more than just make great beer — it’s not just the brewers. It’s everyone at Cape May Brew Co. from the drivers to the Beertenders who work tirelessly to make this company great.”

Now in its third year, the Manufacturing Awards honor the excellent manufacturing businesses that are part of the Made in New Jersey program. The program showcases the products available in New Jersey and the companies that manufacture them.

Co-owner and vice president Bob Krill attended a ceremony at The Palace in Somerset to accept the honor.

“We’ve worked so hard not only to brew great beers, but to create a great company, as well,” he said. “It’s gratifying to be recognized for everyone’s dedication.”
