Corvallis, OR — This December, Block 15 Brewing Company will release their inaugural winter IPA in cans—Fresh Pow, a seasonal IPA designed in cooperation with artist Chris Herbst of Ashland’s Flow Factory NW, whose work is featured on the can’s label art. Brewed often and canned fresh throughout the winter, look for Fresh Pow on tap and in cans at the finest bottle shops, beer bars, and markets around the Pacific Northwest from December through February.
Fresh Pow is a winter IPA designed to brighten the darkest winter days with resinous, citrusy, and tropical hop notes from American and New Zealand varietals. 2-row and superior pilsen form its grist base, while oat malt, flaked barley, white wheat malt, and fermentation with English ale yeast softly rounds out the body. Fresh Pow finishes with a balanced bitterness and lingering notes of mango, spruce, and orange marmalade.
Fresh Pow is releasing at Block 15 Brewery and Tap Room on Saturday, December 1, with distribution around Oregon and Washington beginning Monday, December 3.
