The big news for Ninkasi Brewing Co. in 2018 is cans, but the Eugene, Ore.-based brewery will also be adding new beers, aptly coming in cans.
Pacific Rain, one of the brewery’s Flagship Series beers, will be available year-round in 12-ounce cans. This is an addition to previously available formats including bottles and draft. Bolstering the field of Ninkasi cans are two new beers: Prismatic IPA at 5.9 percent ABV and Yours Truly pale ale at 4.3 percent ABV.
With the exception of IPA Hop Cooler, the other six beers in Ninkasi’s Flagship Series will return for 2018, according to the calendar. IPA Hop Cooler debuted this year as a 7.2 percent ABV citrus IPA.
