Cape May Brewing Co. will celebrate the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl victory with a little help from a brewery in Patriots territory.

Night Shift Brewing, based in Massachusetts, made a friendly wager with the Cape May firm on the big game. The payoff: Night Shift owner Mike O’Mara will serve Cape May Brewing beers from 4 to 5 p.m. Saturday in the brewery’s tasting room at Cape May Airport.

O’Mara will tend bar while wearing a Patriots jersey with “We Lost” emblazoned on the back.

“It’s really been a great time working with these guys,” Cape May Brewing CEO and co-founder Ryan Krill said. “We were both hoping to see our teams win, but they’ve been gracious, even in the face of their home team’s loss. The Eagles prevailed and so did CMBC.”

All tips collected during the hour will be donated to the Eagles Charitable Foundation.

“We love the opportunity to stir up a little bit of friendly competition with other great craft breweries,” Kim Currier, marketing director for Night Shift Brewing, said in a statement. “Although we are bummed that the Patriots lost, it was a well-played game, and we have to give credit where credit is due.”

Cape May Brewing will tap a special firkin of its recent Northeast Pale Ale commemorating the U.S. Coast Guard, Always Ready. The brewers also will create a Boston Cream Pale Ale: Always Ready conditioned with lactose, chocolate and vanilla.
