RESILIENCE IPA

Resilience IPA went on tap yesterday, and we will be donating 100% of it’s sales to the Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund to support those impacted by the Camp Fire. We joined Sierra Nevada and independent breweries around the country in supporting the Butte County community by brewing Resilience. Sierra Nevada has put together a cool interactive map showing all the different breweries/tap houses participating! NPR chatted with Sierra Nevada’s CEO Ken Grossman about the program, and you can listen to that interview here.

PRAY FOR SNOW

We are participating in Pray For Snow events in partnership with two local radio stations (NRQ and KZEL). These events will be at the Tap Room on the 2nd Thursday of the month, beginning in November and ending in March. Pray For Snow is a live event focused on snow-based activities (skiing, snowboarding, etc.) with lots of prize giveaways ($20k total in prizes over the five months of events), games, contests, etc. We expect this to bring in a good number of folks new to Block 15 from around the region. Make sure to check out January’s event…you may even win the grand prize! #block15luck

THE CORVALLIS HALF MARATHON & 5K

The Corvallis Half Marathon & 5K is quickly approaching! The 5k is Saturday April 14th and the Half Marathon is Sunday April 15th. Block 15 encourages you to participate! In support of this, we will be covering the registration cost of any Caves or Block 15 employee who participates.

You must request, and be approved for, that time off of work by February 28th.

If you would like to register for one of these runs, please check in with your scheduling manager first. Sarah and Laura will be giving Kristen A. a list of all staff members who are approved for that time off.  She will then message all approved staff with a code that will allow you to register for free!

Please note this 'offer' is only good for those of you who participate.  If you register, but don't participate, you will owe Block 15 the registration fee, so make sure to only sign up if you are committed to running!

For event specific information, please visit the Corvallis Half Marathon website. Let Kristen know if you have any questions.

PROMOTIONS

EMPLOYEE PACKAGED BEER DISCOUNT

Block 15 will now be offering a 25% discount for employees on all packaged beer! This will exclude crowler and growler sales, since we already get a discount on those ($1 off crowlers, $4 off growlers). The same limits will still apply to beers as normal. This perk is to benefit employees only - so please don’t abuse it!

2015 AUTUMN FARMHOUSE EMPLOYEE FIRE SALE

We’re still selling off a chunk of cellared 2015 Autumn Farmhouse to employees by the case at a whopping discount. Stop by the Tap Room to pick up bottles for $12/case (12 bottles per case).
*This is subject to change based on duration/availability.

THE PEOPLE’S PINT / DINE OUTS

We are currently partnering with Corvallis Environmental Center for The People’s Pint tap. The designated beer is Alpha IPA at both the Pub and the Tap Room. On January 1st we will begin partnering with Heartland Humane Society.

We were able to bring 342 donated toys to Doernbecher and Randall’s Children’s Hospital last Saturday, 12/22 thanks to the 6th Annual Cameron Merrill’s Legacy Toy Drive! We also purchased items off the nurses’ wish list and stocked the shower area with basic essentials at Doernbecher. THANK YOU for promoting the drive and for helping to brighten the holidays for children and families! If you want to keep the love rolling, Cameron’s family organizes blood drives throughout the year - their Facebook page can update you on upcoming blood drives.
