Their brews are completely unique and inventive, utterly delicious, and really just spoke to everything I love about craft beer.

Great Notion

As far as CMBC is concerned, 2018 will go down as the Year of the Collaboration.

So far this year, we’ve had Referend, DC Brau, Carton, Left Hand, and, believe it or not, we’ve got a few more up our sleeve before the year is out.

While they were traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest, faithfully choosing the crops of hops we’ll be using over the next year, they had the chance to stop by Great Notion in Portland, Oregon, to devise yet another collaboration beer to add to our quickly-growing portfolio.

Always Ready was designed specifically for heavy dry-hopping of tropical and fruity hop varieties.

Extra Ready

A lot of the time around here, we’ll brew a beer and absolutely love it but think in the back of our heads, “This could still be better if we….”

And that’s the fun thing about this business. We always get a second chance. While we strive for perfection in everything we do, with almost everything, hindsight is 20/20 and almost always involves more hops.

Take Always Ready, for example. By all accounts, Always Ready is an unbelievably good beer. It’s well-balanced, juicy, floral, and has an ABV that isn’t going to have you dancing on the table after two pints. (Unless you really want to dance on the table. In which case, live your best life. We won’t judge.)

Either way, our philosophy around here is that anything can be made better. In fact, it’s one of our Core Values: Make It Better.

So, when the occasion arose to pump up the aforementioned awesomeness that is Always Ready, we took it by the horns and dialed it up to 11. What was once Always Ready has become that much readier.

Extra Ready, if you will.

I got a chance to see the whole process of having a beer come to life: all the way from when it was only an idea to when it is packaged and on a truck for delivery.

Goodbye, Amanda!

A strong, well-rounded education is the key to a successful life.

That’s our philosophy at CMBC. We continually send members of the Brew Crew on professional development activities, our brewers are constantly keeping up on the latest in beer trends, and we’ve got a strong internship program, educating the future leaders of tomorrow.

This summer, the marketing department was lucky enough to be graced with an internship by Amanda Dunlap.

“Amanda has been a fantastic intern,” said Marketing Communications Director Alicia Grasso. “She was smart and professional and was eager to approach every assignment. She fit in here perfectly, and we’re sad to see her go.”

We got together with Amanda for a few questions.

We crushed it!

Great American Beer Festival 2018

Last week, the Brew Crew descended upon Denver for the Great American Beer Festival. With some 800 breweries pouring over 4,000 beers, it definitely earns its name.

We poured Temporarily Permanent, Always Ready, Concrete Ship, Crushin’ It, and Oktoberfest.

“Crushin’ It crushed it,” said Social Media and Graphic Design Alchemist Courtney Rosenberg. “People came back for it multiple times. Concrete Ship got listed as one of the funniest names by DiningOut Denver & Boulder.”

Sounds like it was a great weekend! Check out the pictures below!

lus, the finish line is one block from the beach in beautiful Ocean City -- you can't beat that.

City to Shore is Here!

We are down to the wire for BikeMS: City to Shore!

It’s one of the biggest weekends of our sponsorship year, when all the work and training and fundraising comes to a head and our bikers all convene in Cherry Hill for one singular purpose: making Multiple Sclerosis a thing of the past.

A cheese factory blew up. All that was left was de brie.

Chefs’ Dine Around

From time to time, we’ll schedule a beer dinner. One of our accounts will coordinate with our Head Chef JP Thomas, and, together, they’ll work out a menu and pairings.

They’re always a great time. JP really has a knack for pairings, and we’re lucky to have him.

We’re also lucky to have an organization such as MAC in town. Formally known as the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities, they’ve been great friends to the brewery for years. A non-profit, we’ve hosted Pint Nights for them, worked on Pop-Up Beer Gardens with them, and, last week, worked with them on their take on the traditional beer dinner: the Chefs’ Dine Around.

It really does taste like a strawberry milkshake!

Pinky Lee

Oh, those summer nights…. You’d spend them at the beach, clad in your leather jacket… falling in love with the Australian exchange student who’s way out of your league.

Summer would eventually come to an end, and you’d return to school and sing a huge production number about your summer conquests. After school, you’d all get together at the Frosty Palace to eat burgers and sip on strawberry milkshakes with your friends Jeff Conaway and the other T-Birds, Stockard Channing, Didi Conn, and Dinah Manoff, and all those Pink Ladies.

Then Stockard would get pissed at Jeff and toss a strawberry milkshake in his face, saying, “To you from me, Pinky Lee!

Okay. That only happens in Grease. Unless you really were friends with all those people, in which case, we should hang out more.

Regardless, the end of summer deserves to be commemorated in some way, and we couldn’t think of a better send-off to summer than with a strawberry milkshake IPA called Pinky Lee.

I’m just here to help, not because there’s a brewing problem. Get it?!? Brewing problem?!?

Welcome Agnes!

We’ve been growing steadily over the past seven years, and, as you may have noticed, we’ve added a significant number of employees in that time. We’re up to about eighty-five now, and having someone around who’s first thought is us was just what we were looking for.

One of the main things we learned from a company survey earlier this year was that we needed someone running HR for this place, and with Agnes Trummer, we found the right person.

“She’s the real deal,” Ryan says. “She’s been working in HR for over twenty-five years, and with that comes a wealth of knowledge and experience. Combine that with a positive, outgoing demeanor, and Agnes fits right in with our unique brewery culture.”

Welcome Agnes!

Another Tiny Drink Umbrella? You’re Welcome!

This weekend, we’ve got two very limited-edition brews coming at you: our milkshake IPA, You’re Welcome and the second edition of our smoothie ale, Tiny Drink Umbrella.

These are two brews you’re going to want to get together — one with toasted coconut and the other with passionfruit, orange, and guava — they’re two great tastes that taste great together.

It took the easy-drinking, refreshing nature of the Watermelon Wheat and added these two extra elements that brought it to a whole new level.

Old Salt

If you’ve spent any time at all at the Jersey Shore — or, really, any ocean-adjacent seaside town anywhere — you probably know this guy: he’s northward of seventy, he’s spent his life out on the ocean, either fishing or sailing or what-have-you, his beard is the envy of everyone in Z Z Top, and he has a face like an old catcher’s mitt, wizened by the salt air.

And he knows how to tell a story.

And he will tell a story. At length.

And, somehow, each successive story becomes less and less believable, yet they all make him out to be Superman, MacGyver, and Steve Jobs all rolled into one.

That guy is an old salt. And you’re lucky to know him.

Now, we’ve got a beer to honor that guy in your life, and, as a watermelon gose, it’s just as salty as he is.
