Another Movember in the Books for Team Blue Point Brewery

0 comments

20141202-133648.jpg

On November 1st, men across the globe began growing mustaches in honor of Movember, a silly name that supports a very serious cause: mens health. You may already know that Movember raises money and awareness of prostate and testicular cancer, but even we were surprised to find out that they fund support of mens mental health issues as well.

This is the third year that Beer Loves Company participated on the Blue Point Brewing Co. team. Blue Point fully supports the cause, assembling a dream team of facial hair and rewards participants with prizes and awesome events. This year there was both a pre and post Movember party at the brewery; the former involved free shaves and the latter featured beer, raffles and an awful lot of moustaches that were noticeably absent just 30 days prior. Though Kevin was able to grow a modest mustache, we were all pretty surprised that Alicia had a full Tom Sellick going after only a couple days. We want to thank all our generous friends, families and supporters who donated and helped us and Team Blue Point raise over $8,000, with a few checks still in the mail . Though Movember is over, the support for mens health continues year round, so visit Movember Headquarters to get involved.

Win a Keg of Blue Point Brewing Company Beer of Your Choice While Supporting Long Island Cares!

0 comments

Thanks to Kevin’s team leading Movember fundraising efforts we were awarded a 1/2 barrel keg of Blue Point Brewing Company beer. Pretty good right? Grow a moustache, raise some money and win beer. Well as much as we enjoy BPBC beer and wouldn’t mind having it on tap at here at home, we have decided to keep up the charitable theme and raffle off the keg.

20140106-121903.jpg

The raffle will take place at the Long Island Beer and Malt Enthusiast (LIBME) meeting this Wednesday, January 8 at Bobbique in Patchogue. Tickets will be 1 for $12 or 2 for $20, with all proceeds going to Long Island Cares. The winner will receive a certificate which they can turn in at Blue Point Brewing Company to receive a keg of their choice based on current availability.

Buy a T-Shirt and Help the Philippines with Recovery from Typhoon Haiyan

BUY A SHIRT = HELP THE PHILIPPINES

20131115-152337.jpg

 

$20 per shirt + $5.95 priority shipping = $25.95

Or, if you are local and see us around (or want to make it a point to), you can pick up your shirt in person for $20 flat.

FROM NOW THROUGH CHRISTMAS 100% OF OUR NET PROCEEDS FROM SALES OF OUR T-SHIRT WILL GO DIRECTLY TO ARCHITECTURE FOR HUMANITY IN AN EFFORT TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES.

Our friends at the The Brewers Collective had an awesome idea. They will be donating 50% of their t-shirt sales for the rest of November to the Red Cross in an effort to help the people of the Philippines. We can relate in some part as Long Islanders having dealt with Hurricane Sandy last year but cannot fully imagine what the people of the Philippines must be going through right now in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. Our best wishes and hearts go out to those who were affected.

Blue Point Brewery’s Movember Wrap Party? Great Success!

0 comments

Blue Point Brewery’s Movember wrap party was a great time for all. Curt Potter (Director of Branding & Communications) and the other BPBC staff organized a fantastic event. They also pulled together a great group of guys who collected almost $9,000 dollars in donations! Everyone on the team and all those who donated or participated should be very pleased.

Last night the brewery was open an extra hour in an attempt to contain the massive amount of jubilation such success generated. There also was a special guest. Early in the evening “Mr. Islander” himself Bobby Nystrom stopped by. He was there to show his support for the cause and for the Blue Point team. Mr. Islander was very friendly and took the time to speak with several fans and also posed for many pictures. It was a nice surprise to have both him and his trademark ‘stache there in supporting the cause. Stay classy Bobby!

Movember – Moustaches > Cancer

0 comments

This November the BLC team will be taking part in Movember – a program dedicated to battling men’s health issues and promoting awareness. Male participants sign up, shave off any facial hair on the first and grow out a flavor-saver for the entire month. Donations are accepted to help in the fight for men’s health. Female Movember members champion the cause and also accept donations.

This means Kevin will be growing a moustache, or lip jacket, to boldly bring awareness to these issues. Alicia will be supporting (tolerating) his “Ron Swanson” along the way and will probably sport a faux ‘stache on and off through the coming weeks. A wonderful mix of fun, knowledge and fund raising: sweet.
