Corvallis, Oregon’s Block 15 Brewing, is excited to announce the 16th release of its Super Nebula bourbon barrel-aged beer series in a Bourbon Month celebration. Launching February 1st and running throughout the entire month, Bourbon Month celebrations will take place in Corvallis, Oregon, at the Block 15 Brewing Downtown Pub and Taproom location, along with a special Portland-based event at Saraveza and Bad Habit Room, and unique offerings at Caves Corvallis.
Block 15 Brewing is set to focus on bourbon through multiple avenues. With the release of four bourbon barrel-aged beers and a specialty collaboration beer with Hair of the Dog Brewing, the locations will also offer food pairings crafted by Executive Chef Sarah Farey, specialty bourbon cocktails by Downtown Director Alex Goodwin and Assistant General Manager Laura Wilson, and a chance to try 18 select bourbon offerings to complete a Bourbon Month 2024 stamp book. Bourbon Month also includes a more exclusive series of ticketed events, such as the Curated Pairing & Open House Event, Brewers Dinner, Bourbon Dinner hosted by Caves Corvallis, and Bourbon Month PDX hosted by Saraveza and Bad Habit Room.

About Block 15 Cellars
Beginning in 2008 with a single French Oak Pinot Noir barrel, our passion for barrel-maturing beer has blossomed into one of the Pacific Northwest’s most unique barrel programs. With a collection of over 180 (and growing!) barrels, this program includes bourbon, brandy, cognac, wine, whiskey, and Oregon oak barrels. These wooden vessels contain mysteries that are a challenge to unlock, infusing complex characters into our beer. Popular Block 15 beers from our traditional barrel maturation program include Figgy Pudding, Imagine, Super Nebula, and Hypnosis.
