Block 15 Brewing Presents Their Annual Bourbon Month Bottle Release & Brunch

Bourbon Month: a most glorious time of the year! Block 15's love for bourbon simply cannot be contained in one weekend or a week - so every February they devote the entire month to a spectacular lineup of select bourbon offerings, barrel matured beers, and bourbon-inspired food specials. As with other events throughout the year, the annual Bourbon Month Bottle Release and Brunch is going to be a little bit different this year. But if you joined Block 15 for their Late Fall Bottle Release, the experience will feel very familiar.

Alongside the release of Super Nebula 2021, they'll be releasing two variants: Super Nebula, Breakfast with Hayden and Super Nebula, Dulce de Leche. They're also adding their yearly release of Kriek, a Spontaneous Cuvee. A truly epic lineup indeed! In addition to the bottles of barrel aged beers, there will also be two hop-forward can releases: Nugg Hugg and Billy Breathes.

You'll have three different options to procure an allotment of each release:

  • Seated Brunch - Sold out.
  • Drive-Thru Sale - All release bottles will be available for customers looking for contactless pickup through Block 15's Drive-Thru sale. The online store to place pre-orders for this option will open on Tuesday, February 2nd at 5 p.m., and will close at 9 a.m. on Friday, February 5th. All orders through their Drive-Thru sale will be fulfilled in their Southtown parking lot on Saturday, February 6th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • UPS Delivery - Block 15 will ship their specialty release beers via UPS (Oregon addresses only) on the Thursday before the release, which will land on your doorstep on Friday (the signature of someone over 21 required). This allows Block 15 guests that are not wishing to travel to still get their hands on the release beers, shipped directly to them. This ordering option will be available beginning Tuesday, February 2nd and will close Thursday, February 4th at 8 a.m.

Watch Block15.com for more information on their Drive-Thru Sale and UPS Delivery.

Release Beers

Super Nebula: Bourbon Barrel Matured Imperial Stout with Cocoa Nibs

Each year Block 15 matures Super Nebula - an imperial version of their Nebula stout - in unique bourbon barrels, followed by conditioning on cocoa nibs selected to complement that year’s blend. The 2021 Super Nebula was matured in Basil hayden bourbon barrels and then conditioned on direct trade wild harvest heirloom cocoa nibs from Bolivia. (13.25% ABV, $11.50 / 500mL bottle)

Super Nebula, Breakfast with Hayden: Bourbon Barrel Matured Imperial Stout with Cocoa Nibs

This special variation of Super Nebula was matured in Basil Hayden bourbon barrels and conditioned on direct trade wild heirloom cocoa nibs, maple, and freshly roasted “Flame On” coffee beans, Block 15's collaboration roast with Bespoken Coffee Roasters. (13.25% ABV, $12.50 / 500mL bottle)

Super Nebula, Dulce de Leche: Bourbon Barrel Matured Imperial Stout with Cocoa Nibs and Dulce de Leche

This special variation of Super Nebula was matured in Pedro Ximénez barrels and then conditioned on direct trade heirloom cocoa nibs and silky smooth dulce de leche. (13.25% ABV, $12.50 / 500mL bottle)

Kriek, a Spontaneous Cuvee: Oud Bruin Ale Spontaneously Fermented in Bourbon Barrels with Cherries

Kriek, a Spontaneous Cuvee is created by filling bourbon barrels that once housed Super Nebula with an Oud Bruin, then spontaneously fermented in Block 15's wild cellars. Blended after conditioning for two winters on local Montmorency cherries from The Cherry Country, Kriek marries the extraordinary expression of tart, orchard fruit and a delicate barrel character. (7% ABV, $11.50 / 500mL bottle)

Nugg Hugg: India Pale Ale

A sticky squeeze of hop nugs embraces you with this aromatic, juicy IPA. Nugg Hugg draws on a heady charge of American and Australian hops to deliver aromatic waves of candied peaches, pineapple, mango, and spruce. (7% ABV, $4.00 plus deposit / 16oz can)

Billy Breathes: India Pale Ale

This double IPA is a dreamy, hazy exploration of soft grains and vibrant hops. Double dry-hopped with five different tropical and citrusy varietals, Billy Breathes floats upon softly sweet grist with generous additions of malted and flaked oats for a luscious body and silky mouthfeel. (8% ABV, $4.50 plus deposit / 16oz can)
