Ninkasi Brewing launches Brightberry Raspberry Lime Ale

Eugene, Oregon based Ninkasi Brewing Company has announced a new year-round beer release – Brightberry, a Raspberry Lime Ale. This tart and fruit forward beer will be available on draft and in 12oz cans across the breweries distribution footprint starting January 4th, 2019. ,

More from a press release:

Originally released in 2018 as part of their Whiteaker Series, a rotating lineup of small batch, draft-only beers, Brightberry is Ninkasi’s take on a classic European style. The fruit forward beer immediately became a customer and staff favorite earning it a place in their year-round lineup.

“The idea for this beer was to make a refreshing, fruit forward beer with a harmonious hint of coriander and sea salt that excite the palate for another sip,” says Ninkasi founding brewer and co-founder, Jamie Floyd.

Ninkasi’s year-round lineup offers a full spectrum of beer styles, including the brewery’s first Flagship beer – Total Domination IPA – alongside Tricerahops Double IPA, Prismatic Juicy IPA, Yours Truly Easy-Drinking Ale, Pacific Rain Northwest Pale, Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout, Hells Bells Lager, and Dawn of the Red Red IPA.
