OK, it might not be Portland beer related, but it's about beer. And it's still within the Oregon border. Ninkasi Brewing beers from Eugene have been available in Portland for awhile, but until now, just on draft. Three styles are now available in bottles over at Belmont Station.

I don't want to repeat too much of what's said over at Belmont Station's blog, but I would like to say that if you pass up any Ninkasi beers when you see them around town, pack up your bags and get out of this city immediately! You don't belong here. These beers are superb examples of aggressive northwest ales. Find one. Drink it. Find another.

If you're reading this, and you're the mayor of Eugene, get in touch. We've got the power to make Eugene an honorary Portland district in celebration of Ninkasi's success.
