Ninkasi Release

I'm pretty bad about announcing events, but this one caught my eye: Ninkasi is releasing their latest beer tonight. They came out of the gate with a fairly stable line-up and haven't added to it much in the past year, so this is good news indeed.

7-9 pm, Saraveza
1004 N Killingsworth St.; 503-206-4252.

Spring Reign- Spring forward with this new ale! Biscuit malt provides a rich toasty malt note upfront that is balanced with bright hoppy noted from American hops. It is like a British Pale with American hops. Simcoe, Santiam, and Ahtanum hops round out the aroma and flavor. 6% alc./vol. 38 ibus.
Brewer Jamie Floyd will be on hand to dole out samples and charm you. According to John, it's also already on tap around town, notably at Henry's, Cassidy's, and Red Star.

I had it at Henry's a couple weeks ago, it was delicious, kind of lightly hopped but full-bodied.

You might look for it at a cheaper place, it was $5.75 a pint at Henry's. Grrrr... every few months I torture myself with a visit to Henry's.
