Press Release

Corvallis, OR — Today Block 15 Brewing Company releases its early winter seasonal, Cosmic Cold Brew, Café Borgia, available bottled and on tap at bottle shops and beer bars around Oregon. Block 15 worked alongside their south Corvallis neighbors, Bespoken Coffee Roasters, to elevate their classic stout Nebula with additional malt and a 24-hour cold extraction on freshly roasted Ethiopia Celinga coffee. Both varietal and roast profile were selected to complement this stout with bright acidity, pie spice, and hints of caramel and citrus. For their Café Borgia variation, they also added sweet orange peel to the boil and cocoa extract to the tank— additions that layered notes of citrus and chocolate onto the base stout and coffee blend.
