It’s been a while since we checked in with our Research and Development Department. Mostly because our R&D is located in the deep catacombs that run beneath the Hydronic Heating system of our restaurant. To be honest, we forgot about them down there. Well, Nick did. He can be forgetful. The good news is they have health insurance and are being treated by the doctors, so we’re hoping for a speedy recovery.
While we weren’t able to save all of their fingers, we DID get a hold of all the wonderful things they’ve been researching. Frankly, we think the sacrifice was worth it, and we hope their lawyers feel the same. Speaking of sacrifice, doesn’t it totally suck that you can’t have beer all the time?
Like, if you’ve ever been at work and thought to yourself, “Man, I could really use a beer right now.” Especially when it comes to paperwork. Who hasn’t, right? We’ve got some good news for you! Common Block Brewing is happy to announce our newest merchandise item: Beer Flavored Post-it Notes. I know, I know, we’re brilliant. Now, whenever filing something or leaving a note for someone, you can choose that special flavor that’s perfect for the occasion.
Want to tell someone they did a great job and you think they’re sweet? Go with the Chocolate Porter Post-it! There’s nothing quite as good as getting a compliment and then being able to eat it. That’s decadence as far as we’re concerned.
Leaving a note to remind Debbie that she needs to stop eating your clearly labeled tuna salad in the fridge? Why not choose the IPA Post-it note to match the bitterness in your heart. It’s called a bag lunch, Debbie.
Need to remember a bachelorette party? Why not write it on our Blueberry Hangover Gose flavored Post-it? It’s a little like pregaming.
Our team is also working on some Common Block Brewing Beer Goggles. Perfect for weddings, blind dates or settling.
But our changes don’t stop there. Taco eaters will be happy to hear that we’ll be serving all you can eat tacos between 4:45am and 5:03am on Tuesdays, 3:17am to 4:01am on Wednesdays and every 6th Sunday from 10am to 5pm during the month of Octember. Whoa! So cool. Our chef is never happy about giving things away, but we feel like he’s wrong and we’re right. Also we have the login information for Facebook where we post all of our special menus, so generally things go our way. Also he doesn’t know yet.
Where were we? Oh yes! Menu changes. Don’t worry about your favorite food item getting the ax because we’re keeping everything on the menu the same, with one exception: we’re going to be modifying our Flank Steak (served with buttered mash and beer marinated vegetables) to allow for a Dairy free/Gluten free/Vegan option.

Finally, we’ll be drawing checks at random every week to give our customers some GREAT giveaways. We don’t want to spoil all of the surprises, but the raffle prizes will include things like 99¢ Dollar Store Gift Cards, DISCOUNTED Blockbuster Memberships and a lifetime supply of toothpicks**. WOW! Those are some enticing prizes.
That’s all we’ve got for now! But keep an eye out for future announcements. We can’t give you all the details, but we will say this:
Post-it note flavored beer.
**Lifetime supply calculated using data from the American Dental Association study on toothpick consumption with denture dependent patients.
