Cape May Brewing and Wawa Releasing a Peach Hard Tea Drink
Cape May Brewing doesn’t miss a lot on their beers so this one should be highly anticipated:

The limited-edition beverage, which uses Wawa’s Peach Iced Tea and Cape May Brewing’s “adult libations,” clocks in at an easy-going 4.5% ABV, according to a news release.
Shore Tea will be released Thursday at all of Wawa’s beer stores, including a new one in Langhorne, where the brewers will be on hand for the store’s grand opening and the official ribbon cutting of the first cases.
Shore Tea will also be released Thursday at Wawa’s 14 other stores in Pennsylvania that carry beer and it will be available at select beer retailers on July 25. A six-pack for Shore Tea will run you $12.99.
This is quite the arms race for hard tea supremacy around the Delaware Valley. You have the Sea Isle Spiked Ice Teas, Surfside Ice Teas + Vodka from Stateside, and the baby formula of Northeast Philly, Twisted Tea. You can make arguments for your favorites. The Sea Isle Teas pack a 6% ABV punch so you could argue you’re getting the most bang for your buck. You can’t start a day drink without tea’ing off with your boys. Then you have Surfside, which doesn’t make you feel like you’re mainlining diabetes into your body because the vodka cuts the carbonation for those digestively challenged. The Shore Tea is a strong competitor to the crowded tea market.
It’s Power Ranking Season so I’m going to need to taste test all of these and come up with the king. Stay tuned.
P.S. I need to get into the alcohol collab game. Who knew in high school when I was mixing Jacquin’s Rum in a half gallon of Peach Iced Tea on the train down to a Phillies game I was a decade ahead of the game.
