Block 15 Brewing has released 16oz cans of Gloria! to a selection of bottle shops and beer bars around Oregon and they’re also now available for in-house purchase at both of Block 15’s Corvallis locations.
This unfiltered pilsner will see increased distribution around Oregon throughout the summer. Gloria! will be available in cans year-round.
Blending delicate malt character and zesty hops, Gloria! is Block 15’s vision of the crisp, unfiltered pilsner. Brewed with floor-malted pilsner malts, it pours a hazy, straw-colored pint.
European and Oregon-grown hops impart citrus and floral spice, while select lager yeast finishes clean and refreshing. This immensely drinkable lager is their brewers’ choice after a long day in the brewhouse.
“We pay close attention to when Gloria! is packaged, with the goal of perfectly-timing a balance between vibrant hop bouquet and complex yeast character at the time of canning,” said Nick Arzner, Block 15’s founding brewer. “Packaged after four weeks of cold lagering, this snapshot in flavor and aroma will last for a couple weeks, when stored cold. With extended cold storage, Gloria! mellows out to further balance these lively hop and yeast notes with its intricate malt backbone. When stored cold, Gloria! drinks beautifully for up to three months.”
This beer is brewed with Bohemian Pilsner, Pilsner and Carafoam grains; Magnum, Hallertau, Oregon-Grown Mt. Hood and Czech Saaz hops; and made with Czech Pilsner yeast.
