Some Local Breweries and Wineries

Sometimes we all don’t really feel like going out to the bar and I thought I’d share some local places to get great home brews and wines!

First on our list is Cape May’s first ever brewery.  2011 The Cape Brewing Company was established.  It was slightly shocking to discover it took us that long to get our own brewery considering the abundance of amazing wineries we have to offer.  Cape May Brewing Company is located in our airport and brew 9 different beers right now according to their website.  They have something for everyone.  They also do tours every weekend.  

Next we have the Cape May Winery.  While it’s not technically located in Cape May, it’s only a hop skip and a jump over the bridge on Townbank Rd. You can find Cape May’s wine’s in a few local restaurants in the Cape May area.  They also do tours for a steal of a price! You can sample 6 wines for 6 dollars and then keep the glass.  The Cape May Winery does a variety of different events and dinners each month!

A Review of Owen’s Pub In North Wildwood

We’ve finally made it to my first real review of a bar!

Thursday evening I stopped in Owen’s Pub in North Wildwood for just a quick drink and some apps.  Certainly was the best way to end my school week I assure you!  I’ve been to Owen’s a few times and I usually get the same thing (some type of draft beer and something I probably should not be eating) however for the sake of reviewing purposes I thought I would mix it up for you.

Let’s start with the overall appearance and atmosphere of Owen’s.  I think the theme is clear with the Irish flag proudly displayed outside and the use of term “pub” instead of “bar.”  I also know that they do have a native Irishman working the bar.  You certainly get the feel for an Irish bar here at Owen’s.  They also cater to the community and are proud of it.  The back wall has an homage to North Wildwood and there are various North Wildwood photographs all over the place.  I truly respect the tribute that this establishment makes to the locals.  This cannot be a local’s Irish type of bar without having a place for the locals to go for their sports entertainment.  21 flat screens lined the walls of Owen’s.  It was no surprise that on a Thursday evening then that there were a limited number of bar stools and tables left.


A tribute to the locals
