Brewpub Coming This Summer to Historic Downtown Creamery Building
(Klamath Falls, Ore) – This summer, Southern Oregon craft beer lovers will once again be invited to belly up to the bar in the historic Crater Lake Creamery Building in downtown Klamath Falls.
Common Block Brewing Company of Medford, Oregon is drafting plans to open doors and taps of its second location where Klamath Basin Brewing Co. — which closed in November 2021 — served locally-made brews for over 15 years.
Alex and Danielle Amarotico of Common Block Brewing Co. cite the opportunity to grow existing brewing operations and add to Klamath Falls’ food and beer scene as big draws for opening their new digs in the heart of downtown.
“We love the character and challenge of historic buildings, and the bonus of contributing to a vibrant downtown,” says Alex. “This is a great community, and the large brewing space and outdoor patio are big draws for us.”
Plans for the sizable brewpub include 250 guest seats and a 15 barrel (466 gallon) brewing system, similar to operations at the Medford location. Common Block will begin renovating the 7,500 square foot building this winter, and plan to offer the same menu in Klamath Falls with wood oven-fired pizzas, beer-inspired entrees, shareable plates, and kid-friendly fare. And of course, craft beer.
In fact, there are plans in the works already for the first specialty beer brewed in honor of Klamath Falls.
“We want to highlight the creamery’s history by brewing a milk stout,” says Danielle. “Our brewer has a recipe in motion, and we really feel like it’ll be a great tribute beer to debut at both locations.”
