About the Beers
The Past: Amber Ale – Partnering with Joel from Corvallis Brewing Supply, The Past is a brew to celebrate the building blocks of Block 15 brewing. Corvallis Brewing Supply and Joel Rea were instrumental in Block 15’s beginning and development as a community brewpub. From supplying our first home brew kit to providing knowledge and encouragement as we put together the dream of Corvallis’ first locally-owned brewpub. Few things stand the test of time as a crisp amber ale. We hope to inspire you as he did with generations of Oregon beer lovers. This brew is a toast to the past!
The Present: West Coast IPA – Partnering with our friends from ColdFire Brewing, The Present is a brew to celebrate the up-and-coming breweries in the industry. ColdFire has been a long-time friend, and we couldn’t be more excited to work with them. A shared vision of craft beer brought us together, but juicy Nectaron hops sealed our bond for this IPA. There’s no time like the present to create this delicious beverage with our friends from ColdFire.
The Future: Rice Lager – Partnering with the Oregon State University (OSU) Fermentation Science Department, The Future is a brew to celebrate the developing research and the new beginnings to the industry! This crisp and refreshing lager features pilsner malt grown in the PNW. A more sustainable beer for our future.
Revolve: Bier de Champagne Aged in Peach Brandy Barrels – Entering our 15th revolution, this golden ale features NW grown grains cellared two years with brettanomyces in peach brandy barrels and bottled, riddled and discouraged in the méthode traditionnelle, revolve symbolizes remaining in motion without forgetting where we started.
