On Friday night, our own Ryan Krill was featured on “Drinking Dirty in Jersey,” a show broadcasted by the “irreverent, entertaining, cool” LA Talk Radio. Program hosts Cassie and Chris Finley — self-described “beer drinking champions of the world” — peppered Ryan with questions about CMB’s
history, ongoing expansion, and industrial-chic locale. The action starts at 14:10 here. But if you don’t have time to listen in, here’s the interview in numbers:
1: Number of on-air f-bombs dropped by Ryan
4: Number of specific CMB brews discussed, including the Coastal Evacuation which recently won a silver medal in the Best of Craft Beer Awards in Oregon, aka “IPA country.”
1: Number of accounts CMB started with in 2011 (Cabanas).
300: Number of accounts CMB will have by the end of this summer
2: Number of states in which CMB is currently distributed. (PA and NJ)
47: The ranking of New Jersey in per capita craft breweries when CMB launched. (Today, we’re still only at 40, but we’re climbing!)
>100: Number of beers produced by CMB in its four-year history
21: Number of CMB employees (and counting!)
1,500: The original square footage of the first CMB building. (The square footage of our new addition? 15,000.)
12: The number of gallons produced by our original brew house. The capacity of our new brew house? 30 barrels.
1: The number of comparisons made between “south Jersey guys” and “mellow” Californians. (Unlike farther north where there is “too much expresso and too much cocaine,” says Cassie. All the more reason to head south?)
