MEDFORD, Ore. — Common Block Bewing Co. is kicking off its new "Beers with Benefits" campaign by drinking to the health of Mt. Ashland.
From now until the closing day of ski season, $1 from every pint sold of the brewery's Steep Slope Hazy IPA will go toward the Mt. Ashland Association.
The campaign kicks off on Wednesday between 6 and 8 p.m. at Common Block in Medford. Guests will also find raffle prizes and giveaways, plus special guests from Mt. Ashland.
Beers with Benefits comes under the auspices of the company's "Local is Love" program, the company said — a way to support the local community and economy "through food sourcing, investing in renewable energy, and donations."
"Throughout the year, Common Block will continue to pair with local organizations and support their good causes through the in-house beer-sales donation program," the brewery said. "When brewery guests order the specialty ‘Beers with Benefits’ brew at Common Block (like this round’s Steep Slope Hazy IPA), the brewery will give a portion of sales to the nonprofit during the program time frame."
The Mt. Ashland Ski Area is operated as a nonprofit and has been the Southern Oregon community's ski hill since 1964.
