Meet Randi!

If you’ve been around CMBC at all, you probably know Randi. Her picture is EVERYWHERE. She’s our favorite model, and not only because of her winning personality and smile. It’s because she’s awesome.

After high school, she went to West Virginia University — which, at the time, was the nation’s #1 party school. So… she’s kind of the perfect person to be our Chief Celebrations Officer.

Now, she runs all of our events, managing a three-person Events team and organizing killer festivals through the New Jersey and Pennsylvania area. And she’s the right person for it — with her positive attitude and attention to detail, Randi is the person you want throwing your party.

So, without further ado… say hello to Randi Friel!

White Caps is Back!

There are beers that we brew only once, to be celebrated in our history and sought after by our fans, and there are those that we keep coming back to time and time again.

White Caps is definitely one of the latter.

Brewed with hefty portions of wheat and oats, White Caps has a soft mouthfeel, a pillowy head, and a robust body. Featuring Mosaic and Citra hops, this effervescent Double IPA explodes with notes of papaya, mango, stone fruits, and citrus.

In fact, we love this one so much, we’ve decided to put it into 16-ounce cans! Following on the heels of our extraordinarily successful (and quick-selling) 16-ounce release of City to Shore, we’re following one great DIPA with another, because 12-ounces of this bad boy just isn’t enough — only a full pint will do. They’ll go out for distribution sometime next week, so be sure to hit up your local liquor store!

In the meantime, check out some of the great things people had to say about this delectable brew.

Your Thanksgiving Meal

Gotta love Thanksgiving. Ostensibly, it’s a day to give thanks for the bounty with which we’ve been blessed, but, let’s face it, it’s a day for food. We don’t call it “Turkey Day” because we’re thankful for turkeys.

(No one is thankful for turkeys. They’re incredibly stupid birds.)

That’s why we had our Head Chef JP Thomas come up with a few recipes to make your Thanksgiving dinner a little more beery. Butternut Squash Soup with Apple Pie? Check! Cranberry Sauce and Stuffing with Cranberry Wheat with Orange? Check! Harvest Herb Turkey with Harvest Ale? Check! Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding with Boughs of Barley? Check!

Check out these recipes below for some inspiration for your holiday meal. If you end up giving any of these recipes a try, let us know what you thought in the comments!

“Using two types of barrels really showcases the barrel-aging process in its own right,” Jimmy says.

Boughs of Barley is Back!

We all know someone who’s waaaaaay too prepared for Christmas. They start their shopping in May, invites to their Holiday Potluck go out in August, decorations for the house are down from the attic sometime in September, and Josh Groban’s Christmas CD is playing in their car the minute the temperature drops below 75. By the time Thanksgiving rolls around, they’re checking out Black Friday sales for stocking stuffers.

We certainly admire their verve and moxie, but their planning seems last-minute compared to the guys in the brewhouse.

“It’s nice to give back,” he says, “and to help people in need. Whether it’s a kid who needs a new wheelchair or helping a single mother afford new furniture for her family, it’s a good feeling to give something back to the local community and help people.”

Welcome (back), Doug!

CMBC can sometimes be like Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part III: “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”

However, everyone in The Godfather drinks wine. Nope. We’re beer drinkers.

And so is our new driver, Doug Diemidio, and, happily, without all the unfortunate trappings of the Corleone family.

New Toys!

Christmas came early to the brewery this year. It came with a bang, it came with great cheer!

Yet it came without ribbons, it came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags.

You see, each brewer in Brewville loved canning a lot. But all they had was a bottler, and that wasn’t hot.

So they called up a canner — Iron Heart was their name — and each week with a canner to the brewhouse they came.

Till one day Hank said, “Oh, this just won’t do. We must get a canner! It must be brand new!”

To the Internet went Jimmy to find the right one. Brian searched and he searched, till his searching was done.

They ordered one up, and, oh, their hearts quivered. ‘Till Tuesday, our new canning line was delivered!

“I’m very excited,” Danielle said. “It gives me the opportunity to work more with the company. Every day it grows more and more -- right in front of my face.”

Congrats, Danielle!

Things move fast in the big city… er… the small, sleepy beach town. While the rest of the town is slowly entering hibernation mode, at CMBC, we’re sailing full steam ahead!

And that means making sure that the ship sails with a full crew.

When it comes to the Tasting Room, we’ve got our Captain: Retail General Manager Kaitlyn Smith. She’s got two First Mates in our Assistant Tasting Room Manager Dan Petela and our Brewtique Manager Emily Bowman.

And now, she’s got a third: Tasting Room Supervisor Danielle White!

...it was very exciting to be part of a company that was in such a growth trajectory so quickly, there almost wasn’t time to say no....

Not Your Average, Ordinary Kind of Woman

She rushes onstage midway through the second act, beautiful and barely put-together, apologizes for missing her entrance due to an uncooperative shoe, then launches into a huge, tongue-in-cheek chorus number about her ordinariness. She sings:

I’m your average, ordinary kind of woman:
Competent and neat,
Making life a treat.
Others as nice
You meet often, I know.
At least once or twice
Every decade or so.

This is Catherine from Stephen Schwartz’s musical Pippin. And, truly, she’s anything but ordinary: a widow raising a child and running a farm — two things that couldn’t have been ordinary in the time of Charlemagne but made perfect sense in a 1972 musical comedy.

Also, this is CMBC’s very own Marketing Communications Manager, Alicia Grasso, who played Catherine while pursuing a BFA in Theatre at Montclair University. Like Catherine, Alicia will insist on her ordinariness, but anyone who knows her and works with her will attest to the fact that she’s anything but.

CBMTRA News

0cb16b14-36fd-445d-8dbc-70d19303c7cdSometimes, there’s actually some good political news: no indictments, no early-morning tweets crescendoing into CAPS LOCK, no mention of Russia or Manafort or healthcare or DACA or any of the other issues that seem to be distracting the nation from the real news: CBMTRA.

We’ve told you about CBMTRA before: the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act would reduce the excise tax for brewers producing under 60,000 barrels a year — that’s 98% of the industry — from $7/barrel to $3.50/barrel, cutting our tax liability in half. The BA expects that doing so would create an additional $320M that we could put back into the economy in terms of new jobs, new equipment, and better beer.
