Turbulent Consequence: Peche honored as the country’s best Belgian-style lambic or sour ale
Press release:
September 30, 2015 - Corvallis, OR — Block 15 Brewing Company claimed a gold medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition, announced September 26. Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest national beer competition that recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. The 2015 GABF competition winners were selected by an international panel of 242 expert judges from the record number of 6,647 entries, received from
1,552 U.S. breweries.

Block 15 Brewing Company captured one of the most coveted awards in the brewing world for Turbulent Consequence: Peche. Peche began as a lambic-style wild ale—naturally cooled in a custom-designed coolship and fermented in oak barrels, as part of its Turbulent Consequence spontaneous fermentation program. After aging for a year to add complexity and the lambic’s characteristic sour bite, the beer was racked into oak wine barrels with local white peaches, matured through the winter, and then bottled with locally gathered honey to create natural carbonation.

“Our Turbulent Consequence program utilizes some of our most challenging brewing techniques to produce some of our most unique beer, so it is exciting to be recognized with a GABF gold medal from the beer community for our efforts,” said Nick Arzner, Block 15 Brewing Company’s founding head brewer.
