The name of the brewery and it’s meaning has been the single most asked about topic since we decided on the name. So, here is why we named it Numbers.The most wonderful thing about numbers is they have both value and meaning. They have no beginning, no end and we are all touched by them in some way. To some, numbers represent money or achievement. To others they represent a favorite date or an athlete. To us, numbers have a much deeper meaning, they represent brotherhood and a way of life. Many years ago, the founders of Numbers Brewing Company attended the same small college and happened to join the same fraternity, a few years apart. Upon initiation they were awarded roll numbers. Those roll numbers signified the successful completion of a difficult journey and their acceptance into a brotherhood that dates back more than 150 years. The roll numbers also provided each individual with a type of seniority over anyone with a higher number than theirs. That seniority would allow them to call “Numbers” for privileges such as shotgun in the car or a good seat at the bar and was often used to give each other a hard time. Therefore, we chose the name Numbers because it reminds us of time we spent at that small college, in that fraternity, with that brotherhood and how it helped to shape our futures. We also chose the name because we believe that everyone can relate to or has connection numbers.
