Corvallis Beer Week VIP Tour with The New School & Brewvana Brewery Tours
Corvallis Beer Week returns for its 2nd year September 10th through 16th with one of its marquee events, the Block 15 Beer Brunch and Cellar Stash Party, already SOLD OUT in just 1 day. LUCKILY, the New School has 14 Reserved Tickets to this party for the return of our hosted VIP Tours with Brewvana Brewery Tours on Saturday, September 15th.
The 2nd Annual Block 15 Beer Bunch and Cellar Stash Limited Bottle Release includes a Beer Brunch with free range eggs, local bacon, Nebula Stout sausage, French Toast, pastries, fresh fruit and coffee. Your seat also includes Beer Rights to purchase 2 bottles of beer from the stash. After everyone has chosen their 2 bottles, what remains will be available for anyone to purchase. Special brews, mimosas, and cocktails will be available for purchase as well.
In addition to joining Block 15 owner/brewer Nick Arzner for brunch, we are going to visit and tour Oregon State University's fermentation sciences department. OSU is one of the only colleges with a fermentation program, and they even developed their own malting facility. The professor that heads up the program, Tom Shellhammer, is one of the foremost experts on hops. Thinking about going to brew school or just seeing what it's all about? Now is your chance.
The tour will also stop off at Corvallis Beer Week's own brewfest--the Septembeerfest at Benton County Fairgrounds--for a few beers. Also, a To Be Announced 4th secret brewery stop is in the works. More on that soon.

Corvallis’s craft beer scene is a continually evolving beast that has exploded since its original breweries, Oregon Trail and McMenamin's, opened some years ago. The opening of beloved beer geek brewery Block 15 was a huge milestone that put the city on the map for beer, and the scene has continued to expand with Flat Tail Brewing, Les Caves Bier & Kitchen, and some new breweries in the works.
Corvallis Beer Week is the brainchild of Co-Founder Drew Salmi, Beer Curator at Les Caves Bier & Kitchen in downtown Corvallis. He saw other communities throughout Oregon, including Portland, Eugene, and Medford, rally behind the idea of a week long celebration of the craft beer industry. After bringing on Chris Althouse, Co-Founder of Oakshire Brewing and Bar Manager at Block 15, and Nathan Langner, Instructor & Faculty Member at Oregon State University, the Corvallis Beer Week team was complete and had a great first year in 2011.
Organizers have formed Corvallis Craft Beer Association LLC with the social mission to promote Craft Beer advocacy throughout Corvallis. Joining CCBA’s signature event, Corvallis Beer Week, will be a 2nd event, BARREL, a barrel-matured Craft Beer experience happening on Friday, September 14th, 2012, at the Corvallis Odd Fellows Hall.
