Brewing the finest microbrews in Oregon & the Willamette Valley!

On Wednesday the 27th, come celebrate summer with an evening in Corvallis for Knights Baseball. Plan to leave work early and join us at our brewpub in Albany at 3PM where we’ll be doing $1 ballpark hotdogs, special prices on beer, and then we leave for the game. We have a chartered bus that will take us from the brewpub to the game and then back again. The bus leaves the brewpub at 5:30pm promptly. Once on board we’ll have refreshing beverages to enjoy before arriving at the ballpark.

Tickets are only $10 each and includes a ticket to the game. In addition we ask that everyone going represent and wear your Calapooia Brewing gear to the game! There are only 50 tickets so act quickly to reserve your spot.

Please note that once at the game, all regular pricing applies.

Here are pictures from last year’s trip to see the Knights. As you can see, it’s not to be missed!


Keep an eye out for our “Calapooia Brewing K Board” Strikeout Board. If there are 9 strikeouts in the game, everyone in attendance at the park gets special coupons for use at our brewpub. Go Knights!

Last week Calapooia Brewing had the pleasure of presenting the game for the Corvallis Knights baseball team. It was a total blast as you can tell from the images below. I’ll let the pictures do the talking:

Coach Hawk from LBCC came out to support his players, Liam Baron and Trevor Smith, who play with the Knights in the off season.

A Few Cloud 9 Movie Night Pictures

I decided to experiment a bit without flash on the camera considering it was movie night and all. A flash is sure to make distract patrons from the movie I figured! Results are a bit mixed, but I’ll do better next time.

Many thanks to Cloud 9 for hosting us for movie night! As you can see in the pictures, it’s a beautiful spot and their menu is fantastic. Looking forward to the next movie night for sure!

And we don’t know who these folks are, but they appear to be mimicking the movie by downing some Calapooia Pilsner by the pitcher:

Nick Hawley did an amazing job organizing this year’s ‘Get On The Road For The Trail’ bike ride from Corvallis to Albany. Over 150 riders made the trip, with their final destination at our brewery and pub. Here are a couple of pictures and you can see more pictures and video on the Albany Corvallis Bike Path web site.

Thanks to everyone who attended to raise awareness for this great cause, and cheers to Nick for continuing to be an advocate for green solutions!

I confess: I’ve taken more shots this month than I’ve had time to update the site! But before much more time passes I wanted to share pictures I’ve taken for Calapooia Brewing in the past couple of weeks.

Mark took me on a tour of the brewery highlighting the newly installed brew equipment. As you can tell, he’s passionate about his craft!
