For fall, we have several recommendations for those craving rich and flavorful cocktails that embrace the spirit of the season. Our top picks for fall beers in Cape May are:
Cape May Fall Beer
Cape May Brewing Oktoberfest
Cape May Brewing Co.’s Oktoberfest lager is rich, complex, smooth, and clean. Amber in color, it is well balanced with a touch of hops. Its grain bill boasts Vienna, Munich, Caramunich, Pilsen, and Melanoidin malts.
Ludlam Island Brewing Oktoberfest
This Oktoberfest ale is brewed with Pilsner, Munich, and Vienna malts. No need to travel to Germany, this beer will take you there. Lederhosen optional; pairs wonderfully with giant pretzels. You can find those at Harry’s.
Cape May Brewing Devil’s Reach
A fruity and light-in-taste Belgian brew, the complexity and character of this beer come from a robust Belgian yeast. Simple but strong, it’s sure to spice up life this fall.
Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin
New Belgian presents Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin Ale, featuring cinnamon habanero chili peppers for an extra kick of heat during this chilly time of year. The Voodoo Ranger family is brewed with a variety of hops and malts, leading to innovative IPAs that are hop forward, bold, and occasionally hazy.
Atlas Peak Vineyards 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
This delicious ruby-colored cab sav offers well-married intense aromas of blackberry, dark fruit, and hints of rich toasted walnut. Its flavor mirrors its aroma, “exploding on the palate with the structure and weight one would expect from hillside Cabernet Sauvignon…The hearty tannins are sufficient to allow this wine to age for many years, but retrained enough to also enjoy now.”
Sea Sun 2019 Pinot Noir
An extended growing season makes Sea Sun 2019 Pinot Noir a deep, rich, layered, wine perfect for chilly nights on the Cape May coast. Strikingly soft, with scents of baked cherries, vanilla, and brown spice, this pinot is perfect for the fall.
Blanton’s Original Single Barrel Bourbon
This single barrel Burbon is sweet and bright with notes of citrus and oak. Enjoy a creamy vanilla nose with hints of caramel and butterscotch, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Blanton’s Original set the standard for single barrel bourbons in 1984. In our option, it’s best served neat or on the rocks.
This fall, we look forward to welcoming you to The Wine Cellar and of course to Harry’s Ocean Bar & Grille from the best food in town. We’ve changed our hours of operations, you can find our current schedule here.
