Here are descriptions on each of the three upcoming releases provided by Block 15 Brewing.
Hoppy New Year!
Hoppy New Year! was brewed to ring in 2018 with a celebratory display of citrusy and tropical hops. Enjoy lively hop notes of orange zest, grapefruit, tangerine, and papaya, balanced by a careful orchestration of specialty malts and yeast esters. Hoppy New Year from Block 15! 8.75% ABV

Belgian-style Quadrupel Ale
Inspired by one of our favorite ales brewed in the Ardennes Mountains, this Belgian dark strong ale was brewed in the shadow of the Cascade Mountain range with Pilsner, Munich and specialty malts, and dark Belgian candi sugar. Gently hopped for balance and fermented with Trappist yeast, The Prophecies hints at dark fruit and Dutch cocoa, with a warm, lingering finish.
Cosmic Cold Brew, Maple Cream
Stout Brewed with Maple Sugar and Cold Conditioned with Coffee
Working alongside our south Corvallis neighbors, Bespoken Coffee Roasters, we elevated our Nebula Stout with a 24-hour cold extraction on freshly roasted coffee to create our seasonal Cosmic Cold Brew series. This Maple Cream variation also layers on a double shot of creamy lactose and rich maple sugar.
