Helles Belles and Easy Way IPA Join Ninkasi’s Year-Round Lineup

EUGENE, Ore.—Dec. 17, 2015—Oregon’s own Ninkasi Brewing Company announces its year-round Flagship Series offerings for 2016. Starting January, Helles Belles, a Helles Lager, and Easy Way IPA, a drinkable India Pale Ale, join Ninkasi’s lineup of steadfast favorites available year-round in bottles and on-draft.

Known for its highly-hopped offerings like Total Domination India Pale Ale, Tricerahops Double India Pale Ale, and Dawn of the Red India Red Ale, Ninkasi has grown to become the 36th largest craft brewery in the United States and prides itself on making well-balanced, high-quality craft beers for a wide range of palates. Founded in 2006 by Nikos Ridge and Jamie Floyd, Ninkasi first debuted with Total Domination IPA. Since then, the brewery has developed its Flagship Series to include seven diverse beer styles all available year-round.

In 2016, craft beer drinkers can find new additions to Ninkasi’s year-round lineup including Helles Belles, a Helles Lager. After the brewery first released Lux, a German-Style Helles Lager, to its Flagship Series in 2015, it decided to revisit the recipe and brand. “We love Lux, which is why we gave it an upgrade,” explains Jamie Floyd, Ninkasi co-founder and founding brewer. “Helles Belles has a slightly higher ABV and IBU, offering a beer that is a little more expressive and playful for a German-Style Lager.” New branding also demonstrates the brewery’s more playful side, capturing its affinity for rock-‘n’-roll.

Also making its way to Ninkasi’s Flagship Series is Easy Way IPA, a drinkable India Pale Ale. At 4.7% ABV, Easy Way IPA supplements Ninkasi’s year-round IPA lineup by offering a beer that is as aromatic and hoppy as expected with a sessionable character. “This beer still has all that you would expect out of an IPA,” says Floyd. “A big hop aroma and a big hop flavor make it reminiscent of a traditional IPA but with less alcohol; it’s unexpectedly drinkable.”

Helles Belles, Helles Lager
Helles Belles is a headliner for the masses. Light and flavorful, this drinkable Lager strikes a chord between satisfyingly crisp and deliciously crafted. With a sweet, toasted malt flavor, a refreshing finish and just a hint of Noble hops, this beer defines drinkability. Allowed to ferment for a minimum of six weeks, Helles Belles is earnestly crafted to offer a beer that is as enjoyable as it is balanced.
Enjoyed Since: 2016 | OG: 1050 | IBUs: 28 | ABV: 5.3%
Watch Jamie Floyd’s Video Tasting Notes:

Easy Way IPA, India Pale Ale (Available in select markets January 2016. Available everywhere else February 2016.)
Crafted for those who enjoy the aromatic and hoppy nature of IPAs but are pining for a lower ABV, Ninkasi introduces Easy Way IPA. A dynamic medley of hops and a crisp, satisfying finish define this unexpectedly sessionable IPA. The big, fruity hop nose and toasted malt flavor are anything but ordinary, offering a beer that is both aromatic and drinkable. With an ABV of 4.7%, this beer is for those ready to break the routine and go the Easy Way.
Enjoyed Since: 2016 | OG: 1045 | IBUs: 44 | ABV: 4.7%
Watch Jamie Floyd’s Video Tasting Notes:

Total Domination, India Pale Ale
In 2006, founders Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge spent 18-hours brewing the very first batch of Ninkasi beer. The result? Total Domination IPA – a citrusy, floral IPA and a testament to Jamie’s love for Amarillo and Crystal hops. With a great malt backbone and fresh, citrus hop flavor, this beer finishes with a desire to return to this favored IPA again and again.
Enjoyed Since: 2006 | OG: 1067 | IBUs: 65 | ABV: 6.7%

Tricerahops, Double India Pale Ale
Offering a double-dose of everything loved in an IPA, Tricerahops has acquired a cult-like following since it was first brewed in 2007. Offering a big, earthy, floral hop hit, this beer is balanced by a generous amount of malt, making for a drinkable double IPA.
Enjoyed Since: 2007 | OG: 1080 | IBUs: 100 | ABV: 8.0%

Dawn of the Red, India Red Ale
Developed out of a desire to craft an IRA using new hop varieties, Dawn of the Red possesses an intoxicating level of tropical notes. Brewed with El Dorado and Mosaic hops, this beer bursts with notes of mango, papaya and pineapple, and is sustained by a subtle malt flavor. Since its first R&D release, Dawn of the Red immediately became a favored Ninkasi offering and joined the Ninkasi Flagship Series in 2015.
Enjoyed Since: 2014 | OG: 1072 | IBUs: 75 | ABV: 7.0%

Oatis, Oatmeal Stout
Brewed in 2007 as the second winter seasonal produced by Ninkasi, a love for Oatis developed right away. Named after a brewer’s dog, the popularity of Oatis promoted its move from a seasonal brew to a year-round offering in 2008. This stout has a dry finish with a significant amount of roasted flavor upfront. Its smooth mouthfeel comes from the use of rolled oats paired with a caramel complexity and coffee flavors.
Enjoyed Since: 2007 | OG: 1072 | IBUs: 50 | ABV: 7.0%

Vanilla Oatis, Oatmeal Stout with Vanilla
A more decadent take on Oatis, Vanilla Oatis features the addition of whole Madagascar vanilla beans. During the brewing process of Oatis, a portion of the beer is set aside in the brite tanks where hand-cut vanilla beans are added – the same process used to dry-hop a beer. This addition of pure vanilla acts as a natural sweetener, adding a more roasted flavor upfront followed by a vanilla finish.
Enjoyed Since: 2009 | OG: 1072 | IBUs: 50 | ABV: 7.0%

Holiday Ale Festival donates $20,000 to Children’s Cancer Association

Winter beer lovers help Holiday Ale Festival
donate $20,000 to Children’s Cancer Association
Attendees raise a glass to winter beers, ciders, braggot and mead at the 20th annual event
 PORTLAND, Ore. – More than 14,000 beer fans packed into Pioneer Courthouse Square Dec. 2 through Dec. 6 to take part in the 20th annual Holiday Ale Festival. Collectively, they helped raise $20,000 for the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA) MusicRx program, which delivers the healing power of music to children battling cancer and their families.

All the proceeds brought in from the on-site coat/bag check, the Crater Lake Root Beer Garden, a raffle, and sales of the festival’s classic pin up girl posters were earmarked for the non-profit. Organizers rounded up the proceeds to the nearest $1,000 and then quadrupled the amount; the $20,000 check was presented to the CCA earlier this week.

The Northwest's only outdoor winter beer festival featured 50 beers, ciders, mead and braggot in the main lineup, all of which were made or blended specifically for the event or were vintage offerings not commonly served in the region. The event is billed as an opportunity for brewers to connect with their fans, and this year’s lineup did not disappoint.

While all the products were well received, a few rose to the top in terms of popularity and buzz, including Reverend Nat’s Winter Abbey Spiced Cider (served warm); Deschutes Brewery’s Pacific Wunderland (Munich IPA); Feckin Irish Brewing’s Top' O The Feckin Mornin (Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Espresso Milk Porter); 54° 40’ Brewing’s Snowball Headed for Hell (White IPA); Eel River Brewing’s Gargantua III (Imperial Barrel Aged Strong Ale); Bear Republic Brewing’s Cuvee du Santa (Sour Brown Ale); and Fort George Brewery’s Deck the Helles (Barrel Aged Helles Lager).

The festival also featured 46 special tappings spaced out all five days of the event, including a four-year vertical of The Abyss by Deschutes Brewing. Fans were able to stay informed of the tappings and beer locations via a mobile app that was updated live at the event. Meet the Brewer events with Bear Republic’s Peter Krueger, Firestone Walker’s Keenan Delaney and Stone Brewing’s Dr Bill Sysak were standing room only affairs with the brewers surfing a sea of questions and fan appreciation.

The festival replaced its traditional opaque mugs with Govino tasting glasses made from a flexible BPA-free polymer that properly showcased the beverages. The shatterproof, recyclable and reusable Govino glasses were a huge hit with the attendees.

Event highlight included the onsite Oregon Lottery iClick Photo Booth, which provided instant festival memories with free hard copy photos; a table featuring rotating local beer writers peddling their wares, which offered excellent holiday gift opportunities; and the 12th annual Sunday Beer Brunch, a sold out affair with more than a third of the attendees coming from outside the Northwest to taste vintage beers and special large format bottles paired with a European style buffet. Food selections ranged from fresh roasted nuts and cheese to tasty creations from Urban German Grill and Bunk Sandwiches.
Advance tickets were more popular than ever, with holders experiencing expedited entry all five days. Those who took advantage of the VIP ticket option were pleased with the extra perks which included designated beer lines with little to no waiting, exclusive VIP-only vintage beers, and aged cheese to pair with the beers.

The Holiday Ale Festival is a five-day event that annually starts the Wednesday following Thanksgiving. Dates for 2016 are Nov. 30 through Dec. 4. For more information, visit

Portland Brewings New Limited-Edition Scotch-style Ale Joins Benefit Beer Lineup

Courtesy of Portland Brewing Co
PORTLAND, Ore. (December 18, 2015) Stand up to the cold with Portland Brewing’s new neighborhood-inspired benefit beer, Wee Lad Scotch-style Ale. Brewed to get Oregonians through these chilly winter months, the draft-only seasonal beer exists for just a limited time. This hearty brew celebrates Ladd’s Addition, the uniquely beautiful and historic inner Southeast Portland stomping ground. Wee Lad also supports the Oregon Food Bank and its statewide mission to end hunger.

The traditional strong ales of Scotland inspired head brewer, Ryan Pappe, to brew this one a wee bit heavy to stand up to the rain and cold of an Oregon winter. “I love a good Scotch Ale, so we set out to brew our own take on this classic style,” says Pappe. “I lived for years near Ladd’s Addition, enjoying the unique layout of the streets and the rose gardens spread throughout. I consider Wee Lad to be like those gardens during the depths of winter: the rich and sweet malt goodness nourishes the soul like the fertile soil of the gardens nourishes the roses once the sunshine returns.” Brewed using Magnum and East Kent Golding hops, along with malts 2-Row Pale Barley, C-40 and Black Malt, Wee Lad’s full body features sweet notes of caramel with a hint of roast. Pappe believes, “you can count on this beer to revive you on a cold night.” 
ABV: 8% | IBU: 35 | SRM: 17 | OG: 19

The Wee Lad Scotch-style Ale is the fifth and final installment in the 2015 Guild’s Lake Series of neighborhood-focused beers, joining Rico Sauvie Pumpkin Ale with Spices, Night Market Special Lager, ‘Round the Block and Pier Park Piney Pale. The Series derives its name from Guild’s Lake, a former wetlands in Northwest Portland where Portland Brewing is now located. A portion of the proceeds from each pint benefits the Oregon Food Bank and its holistic approach to ending hunger by bringing our community together to provide food, education and hope to our neighbors in need. 
Wee Lad is now on draft at Portland Brewing’s Taproom, for a limited time, and will soon be available at other Portland-area bars and restaurants.

Bend, Oregon - December 17, 2015 - In the spirit of colder months and introspection, Worthy Brewing is releasing the third vintage of Dark Muse Imperial Stout, their annual high gravity, small batch brew.
At 10.1% ABV, this monster stout is smooth and dark with a rich body, roasty character and velvety brown head. Notes of anise, extra dark chocolate and coffee finish warm, but not boozy.

Worthy’s brewmaster, Dustin Kellner, considers Dark Muse to be the  ultimate cold weather beer, meant to warm the body and awaken the soul with the first sip.
