about common block
WELCOME TO THE BLOCK
Common Block Brewing Company is an indoor-outdoor restaurant and brewery located in The Commons of downtown Medford. Our family-friendly brewpub welcomes guests for lunch, dinner, appetizers, dessert, brews with friends and everything in-between.
At Common Block, we believe in the camaraderie that thrives over shared pints and plates. Our gathering place centers around building community, sharing ideas, and crafting good beer & fresh food. We get our kicks from seeing a brewpub chock-full with people joining, talking, engaging, drinking & eating. The mission is communal, habitual, simple; let’s make community happen together.
Meet Alex & Danielle
Common Block’s founders, Alex and Danielle Amarotico, have been a part of the local hospitality and brewing industries for two decades. These long-time Southern Oregon denizens have lived, brewed and raised their brood of four kids here while operating another local brewpub for 18 years. In 2015, they jumped on the opportunity to craft a downtown Medford brewery in the historic Monarch Building, and Common Block Brewing Co. was born.
What were their big motivators for opening another brewery in Southern Oregon? If you ask Alex, it was remodeling the historic building, adding to the local craft beer scene, and getting to weld some new equipment. If you ask Danielle, it’s been the excitement of forming a great staff, building relationships in the local community, and creating a family gathering place. Regardless, their vision of building a local hub with from-scratch food and regional taps finally came to fruition when we opened our doors in December 2016.
We invite you to come explore downtown Medford, enjoy good company, and get your fill of house-made fare from our award-winning chef and super-talented brewer.
