The owners of COHO Brewing Co say it’s never too late to follow your dreams and start a business. Karen Buckingham and Mike Johnson decided that their love for life and having a good time was the spark needed to enter the still-growing craft beer industry.
The story begins when Buckingham hired Johnson to cater a private party. After rave reviews about his BBQ, a friendship between the Buckingham and Johnson families began. After a few visits to different regional breweries, and after having sampled Johnson’s home-brewed beers, Buckingham came up with the idea of opening a brewery with Mike as the brewer. They were convinced that Mike’s beer was ready to be made available to the public.
After a search for the perfect location for the brewery around their hometown, they finally found that perfect location on Indian Trail Road in Cape may Court House.
Buckingham has extensive experience in customer service and is extremely excited about the launch of COHO Brewing Co. Johnson is a retired North Wildwood police officer and started his award winning Anglesea BBQ catering company. The name COHO came about because of its location in Cape May Court House or “COurt House”. COHO will feature unique beers in a very relaxed environment, where the brewery can be viewed from all areas of the tasting room and bar in a very industrial but warm inviting setting.
