Block 15 Brewing Company – Marketing & Creative Manager – Brewbound.com Craft Beer Job Listing


Block 15 Brewing is a locally-owned company that was born out of a passion for thoughtfully and excellently produced food and beer, social and environmental sustainability, strong local partnerships, generously giving back to our community, and organic growth that prioritizes our team’s wellbeing and the quality of our work.

First established in 2008 as a community-oriented brewpub, Block 15 has since grown to include three focused locations—a community-focused brewpub, a production brewery and tap room, and a sibling restaurant in Caves Corvallis —alongside Block 15 Distribution Company, on bringing craft beer and goods from regional artisans to markets around the PNW.

ABOUT THIS POSITION:

We’re looking for a truly special Marketing Manager to join our Digital Media Specialist to help us share the Block 15 experience in our local community, and across the PNW—someone that can blend creative vision and analytical insight as you tell the Block 15 story as uniquely and efficiencies as possible. Past experience in craft beer, food, and hospitality is also a huge plus.

An imaginative and professional approach to content and communication is a must, as our marketing programs need to reflect the same polish and originality as our products. An organized mind and strong project management experience is just as important, as our business relies on well-defined goals and sound budgeting to give us the freedom to create something special when inspiration strikes.

Finally, to really fit in with our tight-knit culture here at Block 15, we’re looking for a kind, earnest, and high-energy person that will bring enthusiasm and positivity to our team and our community. We work exceptionally hard for the love of our artform, —but more so for the love of our community. If you share these values, and can bring the skillset to our team that we’re looking for, then we would love to hear from you!
