Chuck Wray is a 24-year-old graduate of Susquehanna University who studied public relations, advertising, marketing and graphic design. He’s a man of many hats and, at the brewery, he wears a bunch of them. Chuck’s official title is ‘event rep,’ but since he was hired in April, he’s done everything from delivering beer to bartending to helping out at CMBC’s headquarters… and he wipes out in style, too. Get to know “The Chuck” below:
I am from… Egg Harbor Township.
My favorite non-CMBC craft beer is… Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin.
My favorite CMBC brew is… Geek Out 2.0.
The superpower I’d most like to have is… laser vision.
The thing I’m most afraid of doing is… starting my own clothing company.
The thing that’s stopping me is… probably that I’m broke!
My favorite musician is… Led Zeppelin
The most famous person I’ve ever met was… I technically didn’t meet him, but I saw George W. Bush at an Army Navy football game.
My karaoke song is… I’ve never sung karaoke, but with a few pints of Devil’s Reach I’m sure I would!
The team is support is… Eagles.
If I could, I would splurge on… probably lots of good beer, like a lot.
The best advice I’ve ever gotten is… Let’s go with something really corny: follow your heart.
The last time I laughed until I cried was… About a month ago. I was out with my a couple buddies hanging at the bar, just having a good time.
The greatest adventure I ever had was… When I traveled to Germany with school the summer before my senior year of college.
The dorkiest thing about me is… I’m a craft beer nerd. I will ask EVERY bar for their craft beer selection.
The thing no one knows about me is… I never went to prom in high school. I always had a big crew race the day after…
If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be… Chick-fil-A.
I would give up 10 years of my life if it meant I could… Travel around the world.
The decade I wish I’d lived through is… The 50s.

The best part of my job is… Getting to meet new people every day.
