Another Movember in the Books for Team Blue Point Brewery

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. keep reading...

Movember is Coming…

Edible New

It’s that time of year again. The time when bearded men transform themselves into unrecognizable baby faced boys. When glorious mustaches get shaved off for a greater good. Of course, we’re talking about Movember.

In case you aren’t familiar with it, Movember is a fun way to raise money and awareness for prostate/testicular cancer and mens mental health, while not having to shave for the entire month of November. The cause isn’t limited to men, as women are also encouraged to participate (no mustache required). Every year Blue Point Brewing Co. assembles a team of hair growing fundraisers and this time is no different. keep reading...

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.

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. keep reading...

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! keep reading...

Burt Reynolds Bear Skin Rug Mustache

Ok so Burt the Hurt is not weeping in this picture and my lip fuzz is still strong but the end is coming. The hairy and health conscious movement that is Movember has reached the final stretch. Thank you to all those that have donated to us along the way. Beer Loves Company was able to raise over $5,000 (wowie!). We also joined with the Blue Point Brewery team helping them in their fund raising goals. It really is remarkable what we were able to accomplish and it shows how much people care. These donations will go a long way in the fight against both prostate and testicular cancer. Donations are still being accepted and are most welcome! keep reading...
