Eugene, Ore.-based Ninkasi Brewing is set to release its Rare & Delicious Series in 22-ounce bottles.
According to Ninkasi’s website, it will start the release of this series in bottles with Velocihopter, a double IPA and Tart & Soul, a blackberry sour.
Velocihopter is an 8.4 percent ABV double IPA with 88 IBUs. It also boasts a robust hop bill including bravo, centennial, Columbus, meridian, Simcoe, and sterling. Tart & Soul is an American kettle sour with blackberries, and has a 5 percent ABV and 7 IBUs.
“Our Rare & Delicious Series captures the creativity of our brewing team; now in bottles, we’re able to share these small-batch beers with even more of our fans,” said Jamie, Floyd, co-founder and founding brewer. “Many of these beers are passion projects, starting on a homebrew system and evolving along the way; we’re proud to show off the mastery of our brewing team.”
Velocihopter will be the first to hit shelves, starting in mid-Feb. Following soon after will be Tart & Soul in March. Both beers will be available in both 22-ounce bottles and on draft throughout most of Ninkasi’s regular distribution footprint.
