Down in Cape May county shopping can be hard to come by, it seems that no matter what you need everything is 35-45 minutes away. There is an exception,breweries! I swear, I feel like, there is one every 10 miles and I am ok with that. I recently went to visit the 7 mile brewery in Rio Grande. 7 mile is unexpectedly in a small shopping center across from a Walmart, but don’t let that fool you, they know beer.
First let’s talk atmosphere. From the high-tops that can fit a group, the doggie hang out complete with water bowls, to the large u-shaped bar that is perfect for socializing this place has atomosphere. Add to that an epic playlist and great beer, 7 Mile Brewery has everything a Jersey Girl could want.
Their beer selection is on point and they have something to please everyone from the lite beer drinker to the IPA lover . Skinny Dipper is a beach-worthy beer perfect for pouring into your solo cup and sipping while digging your toes into the sand and watching the waves roll in. to the porch drinking end of the work week (or day-no judgement here) 7Suns DIPA is perfect for sitting on the porch after a long work week or a long work day, there’s no judgement here. The beer at 7 Mile is good and the passion for good beer is obvious.
Your visit to 7 Mile Brewery, starts with a tour just like every other brewery because rules. 7 Miles tour mixes it up by encouraging guests to autograph the wall. On our visit I took the pink sharpie and shamelessly plastered Jersey Girls Drink across the wall of shame.
After the tour I picked my path of desire, pint or flight. My guy and I choose flights because flights are the best of 4 worlds, and who doesn’t want that?
Like most brewery’s food isn’t served but there are plenty of options across the street but it doesn’t hurt come prepared. Overall, 7 mile has something for everyone and the atmosphere is awesome. Just ask the bartender for their recommendation or try a sample of everything, because what’s a visit to a brewery without a few beers.
