In early 2014, the HCSV Foundation Board of Trustees voted unanimously to pursue the development of a small brewery on the Village grounds with the name Cold Spring Brewery. To this end, and in keeping with the mission of the Historic Cold Spring Village, an 1804 three bay English-style Cape May County barn from Upper Township was purchased. Stillwell and Elizabeth Corson, a familiar name in the County, built the classic building. Permission to restore and reconstruct the barn, board by board, and place it on Village property was received from both the Lower Township and County of Cape May Zoning Boards along with approvals to utilize the barn in connection with the proposed brewery. Although the barn/brewery is located outside the Village fencing, it remains part and parcel of the 30 acres that are located between Seashore Road and Route 9 in Cold Spring, containing 27 restored historic structures.
Funding for the project was secured through HCSV Foundation’s fundraising events, donations, memberships, retail sales, corporate sponsorship for programs and gate revenue. Its purpose is to stabilize the museum for future generations to enjoy. The Village’s mission is historic preservation, history education, and heritage tourism.

Cape May Farmhouse
Traditional Pale Ale—7.6% ABV— 5.IBU
Possibly the most period correct beer on tap, our Farmhouse is a very easy going brew with a hint of malty sweetness and a little bite at the tail end. Very low on hops so little to no bitterness.
Ishmael Pale Ale
Pale Ale—8.5% ABV— 68 IBU
This is as close to an IPA as you can get without being a true IPA, Extra hops are added to an already tasty pale ale giving it a nice bitter, but not overwhelming taste, with hints of grapefruit hiding about.
Hildreth German Wheat
Hefeweizen—5.4% ABV— 18 IBU
True to character, we use a German yeast with no filtration, which adds to the cloudiness and foaminess. Hints of banana, cloves and citrus.
Finley Forge IPA
New England IPA—8.5% ABV— 130 IBU
Cold Spring Brewery’s first true IPA. still not overly aggressive, but certainly packs a punch. A must try for any hop head. Our secret use of hop variety adds just the right mix of floral bitterness and malty sweetness.
Dennisville Inn Porter
Porter—5.6% ABV— 5 IBU
A mainstay in the brewery since day one, our porter has rich coffee flavors with hints of chocolate lingering around.
Vanilla Milk Stout
Milk Stout—5.2% ABV— 5 IBU
Originally created to be a one-time special occasion brew, it was so liked and requested that we made it a mainstay. A lighter stout with a creamy body and strong notes of vanilla and chocolate with hints of coffee.
Hand American Lager
American Pale Lager—6% ABV— 18.5 IBU
Heavier in body then most lagers this packs both malty sweetness and smoothness, a very easy drinking beer with all American sourced ingredients.
Light Lager—5.25% ABV— 26 IBU
Akin to a Coors Light or Bud Light, an all-around light beer with low hops and low craft beer flavor’, Levi’s Lager can be enjoyed by all drinkers alike.
Cold Spring Red
Irish Red Ale—6%— 40 IBU
From the moment the doors opened on July 12, 2016. the Cold Spring Red has been our best selling beer and remains so to this day. With a rich burnt sienna color, a creamy beige head and good lace, it is our visitor’s favorite brew.
Limited edition brews are available, please visit often, we look forward to seeing you!
