Block 15, the mid-Willamette Valley’s premiere brew pub, specializes in locally sourced pub food and premium from-the-source craft brews. Located in downtown Corvallis, they're leaders in the sustainable craft brew revolution that's taking the Northwest by storm.

Block 15Block 15 takes their footprint on this earth very seriously. They are participants in Pacific Power’s Blue Sky Program and NW Natural Gas Smart Energy Program.  They brew efficiently in order to reduce the use of water and recycling waste and by using organic and regional ingredients. For instance, they use a hot liquor tank that catches excess water during cooling and stores it for the next brew day. They use a clean in place systems to clean their tanks. In addition, they purchase Bonneville Environmental Foundation Water Certificates. For every gallon of water they use in their brewery, the amount is diverted back to rives in need through those certificates.

But most importantly they take pride in serving tasty craft beers and delicious food all in a warm welcoming casual environment. 

They have set a great example for other craft brew establishments that have opened since Block 15 came into town. For example, Sky High Brewing does local deliveries to area restaurants using a bicycle built in Eugene and they are a bike friendly business. The folks at Sky High brew beer to celebrate life here in Corvallis. They feel lucky to live in the Willamette Valley and they know it. They brew on a 10 barrel JV Northwest system made in Canby, use Crosby Hop Farms hops from Woodburn and Wyeast yeast from Hood River. They also serve some excellent pub food that is locally sourced. 

Each year since 2011 the Corvallis Craft Brew Association comes together to hold two great events: the Corvallis Beer Picnic is scheduled for July 25, 2015 and Corvallis Beer Week is on schedule for September 11th through September 19th 2015.
