A brew that has been making waves in PA and NJ is Cape May Brewing Company’s Crushin’ It, a fruited summer delight that captures the essence of the beach in every sip.

Crafted using fresh orange juice, Cape May Crushin’ It is a fruited summer delight that captures the essence of the beach in every sip.

Inspired by the iconic beach bar cocktail Orange Crush, Cape May’s Crushin’ It embodies the spirit of summer. Crafted with fresh orange juice, this IPA boasts a dangerously juicy flavor that is both refreshing and crushable, all while delivering a satisfying 8% ABV kick.

You may ask, why should I sell Crushin’ It? This beer has a proven track record of success.

“Even though it’s a seasonal product, Crushin’ It, a top 5 performer in Cape May’s portfolio, has quickly become our #1 seasonal in both draught and package formats,” notes Cape May’s Market Manager (PA & DE), Scott McIntyre. “What’s more, Crushin’ It has secured a spot in our top five brands overall. It’s honestly a remarkable feat considering its seasonal availability in the market.”

When it comes to summer sales, Crushin’ It is a powerhouse. The package variant of Crushin’ It skyrockets to #3 in overall package sales by the time summer hits, trailing only behind Cape May Brewing Co.’s flagship IPA and Coastal Evacuation. Similarly, draught ranks among the top five draught SKUs for the year, peaking at #3 in the summer.
