Block 15 Brewing Super Nebula & Kriek Bottle Release
Corvallis,OR – Join Block 15 Brewing Saturday February 7th as we release three bourbon barrel matured beers from our cellars; Super Nebula, Kriek, and Super Nebula Coffee with Elijah. All beers have been bottle conditioned in our new 500ml format. Please read below for information on each beer, limits, brunch reservations, and Three-liter availability. This release is a part of bourbon month at Block 15 and Les Caves. In addition to the bottles we will have all beers on tap, a nice bourbon menu, and food specials featuring bourbon in the recipes. Friday December 6th, Les Caves will feature a barrel matured beer event with over a dozen beers.
2014 Super Nebula was matured in Heaven Hill distilleries bourbon barrels layering characters of dark oak, vanilla, bourbon and coconut. Fresh roasted organic cocoa nibs from Ecuador and Nicaragua were added during conditioning lending notes of toffee, hazelnut, and rich Dutch cocoa.
11.25% ABV, $11, Limit 5
Super Nebula, Coffee With Elijah
Our brewers selected and matured this special edition of 2014 Super Nebula in a single twelve-year-old Elijah Craig bourbon cask and then conditioned on freshly roasted organic cocoa nibs from Ecuador and Nicaragua and a cold extraction of premium coffee beans. The beans, Benevolence blend and single origin Ethiopian Yirgacheffe were hand roasted by Mud River Roasting, and selected for their unique dark chocolate, toasted nut, and blueberry profiles.
11.25% ABV, $12, Limit 1
Kriek, A Three Summers Cuvee
Early in the summer The Cherry Country delivers fresh picked Montmorency cherries from their orchard to our brewery. Our brewers immediately pack these tart red beauties into first and second use Kentucky bourbon casks before filling them with Enchanted, our open fermented Oud Bruin. Each autumn we blend three seasons from select barrels marrying fresh and mature cherry notes with gentle bourbon, oak, rich malt, and balancing acidity.
7.75% ABV, $12, Limit 3
