Cape Cod Beer x Mindbender Pale Ale

The Back Story:

Todd & Beth at Beach Road Weekend Music Festival (August 2022)

Cape Cod Beer owners Todd & Beth Marcus have always been big fans of music, and when they moved to Cape Cod in 1998 they fell in love with MVYRADIO, because they appreciated MVYRADIO’s dedication to seeking out new artists, having varied and interesting programming, and playing a great mix of music that they love!  And once they got to know them better they also became big fans of the people that work there!

Cape Cod Beer has been a proud supporter for many years, and loves being a sponsor of the afternoon MindBender.  (For the uninitiated the Afternoon MindBender is a daily question where MVYRADIO listeners, who are super-smart, get to prove it every day, by plumbing deep within their grey matter to answer some of the toughest queries on a variety of subjects. Show your smarts weekdays at 3:20pm on 88.7 or streaming live at!

MVYRADIO MindBender American Pale Ale

When we wanted to create a new beer, namely an American Pale Ale, we were searching out a name and concept when the idea struck us to make a beer that celebrates and honors MVYRADIO and the MindBender, so we’re very excited to bring you Mindbender Pale Ale. 

This light & crisp ale is packed with hop flavor that will send you into sensory overload. Pouring a hazy golden color, this refreshing brew is bright with aromas of fresh citrus, grapefruit, and a hoppy dankness. Unlike the daily Mindbender question on MVYRADIO, sipping on this Pale Ale is a no brainer.

The beer releases in 16oz cans on Black Friday (11/25), and the labeled cans have 8 different MindBender questions on them to test your smarts!

MindBender Bash | Dec. 10th 7pm

Anyone who knows us, knows that Cape Cod Beer loves a good excuse to host a PARTY – and even more so when we can combine it with a new beer and live music.  Join us at Cape Cod Beer on Saturday, December 10th from 7-10pm for a night of live music with Johnny Hoy & The Bluefish! 

General Admission tickets are $20 and include a $10 donation to MVYRADIO. There is also a VIP Package for $38 that includes admission, one 4pack of the MindBender American Pale Ale & a specialty Mindbender 16oz can koozie. As an extra effort to help support our favorite local radio station, we will be donating 88.7 cents from every pint of MindBender American Pale sold at the brewery to MVYRADIO. Surely there will be MindBender questions asked throughout the night! Rumor has it that there might even be some prizes for the smartypants in the room!

Join us for a few beers, a few laughs, some dancing, and great live music to support a great local radio station!
