TACOMA PREFUNK WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14 2018: Block 15 A Nugg Hugg and The Last Jedi

PREFUNK: Block 15 Brewing sits heart of downtown Corvallis, only a few blocks from Oregon State University. The brewery’s name hails from Corvallis’ previous incarnation as Marysville and the old plat map location from the old town. In late 2011, homebrewers Nick and Kristen Arzner opened the brewery and restaurant serving beers true-to-style with ingredients imported from different parts of the world, along with all the Willamette Valley produced grains, hops, fruits, herbs and yeast. Block 15 Brewing’s A Nugg Hugg (7%) arrives via the brewery’s DAB Lab series (“DAB” in this case an acronym for dank-ass beer): a project showcasing its dedication to hop CO2 extracts and cryogenically harvested lupulin powder, a yellowish substance obtained from oil- and acid-rich glands on the hop flower. Explosively aromatic with sweetly dank bud, candied peaches, mango and spruce, its flavor blends subtle pineapple and peach with a not-so-subtle embrace of dank and fruity herbs, finishing with a lingering wave of resinous pine. A Nugg Hugg pours from Peaks and Pints’ Western red cedar tap log.
