Press Release — 23 January 2012

Phillipsburg, NJ – December 30, 2011 – Hunterdon is excited to announce that Dogfish Head sales for the year 2011 have exceeded the 100,000 case equivalent mark.   This year marks the first time in company history that Hunterdon has reached this tremendous goal with any of its suppliers.

In a company-wide memo on December 20, 2011, Hunterdon co-founder Dave Masterson wrote, “Yesterday marked the historic day that the record-breaking case of Dogfish Head was delivered into the market.  We would like to congratulate and thank everyone at Hunterdon and at Dogfish Head for their hard work, passion and enthusiasm with reaching this extraordinary milestone. We are very proud to represent Dogfish Head for the state of New Jersey and look forward to selling 150,000 case equivalents in 2012.”

Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione also gave a statement regarding this exciting news. “This is a huge milestone.  I still remember the day I rowed the first six-pack to New Jersey and three people showed up to greet me.  I’m pretty sure those three people were our only loyal customers for the first three years.  Mike Short used to say that Dogfish and Hunterdon were in a race to go bankrupt as we unloaded my three-pallet delivery truck by hand because the fork lift was busted once again.  But slowly and surely, Dogfish and Hunterdon grew our collective business in New Jersey.  It took a lot of hard work by a lot of passionate people, but we made it happen together and I am very proud.  Thanks for all the support!”

Hunterdon has been distributing Dogfish Head’s “off-centered ales” in New Jersey since 1998. They are the fifth distributor nationwide to have achieved this significant goal for the brewery.
