EUGENE, Ore.—June 16, 2016—June 15, 2006, Ninkasi Brewing Company
set out with a single mission: Perpetuate Better Living. Operating
under this core purpose, the brewery has grown from a two-man team to
become the 36th largest craft brewery in the United States,
operating entirely from its facilities in Eugene, Oregon and employing
more than 100 employees. Producing award-winning craft beers, giving
back to each community that serves its beers, and garnering national
recognition as a top employer are just a few milestones the brewery has
achieved in its first decade.
“We are excited for what we’ve been able to accomplish since 2006 and
are even more excited about what the future holds,” explains Ninkasi
CEO and co-founder, Nikos Ridge. “Ninkasi exists because our customers
support what we do; we take that to heart every day.”
With distribution in 14 states and two provinces, Ninkasi continues
to grow its craft offerings to a lineup of seven, year-round Flagship
Series beers, a rotating Seasonal Release Series, Special Release Series
beers, and Rare & Delicious (R&D) small-batch releases.
Since its founding in 2006, Ninkasi has prioritized community impact in each and every state where its beer is sold. Ninkasi's Beer is Love donations program supports more than 300 non-profits annually with donated beer to be used for fundraising initiatives and other gatherings.
As an employer, the brewery has been named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon” by Oregon Business Magazine for
two years. Last year, the brewery received national recognition ranking
on the “The 100 Best Places to Work in 2015” list by OUTSIDE.
“I am so proud of our team and the achievements we have made together
in this amount of time,” says Ninkasi co-founder and founding brewer,
Jamie Floyd. “Mostly I am happy that we have folks who have supported us
all along and we are still drawing in new beer lovers every day.”
THE BEER: N10 IMPERIAL BLENDED ALE
To kick off its summer of celebrations, the brewery will release N10,
a commemorative Imperial Blended Ale, available in limited 22-ounce
bottles throughout Ninkasi’s distribution footprint beginning this July.
Featuring a collectible outer box, the iconographic artwork for N10 was
crafted in collaboration with Ninkasi’s in-house art department and
Portland-based muralist and artist, Blaine Fontana.
“N10 is a very special beer, blending together five cornerstone
recipes each telling its own story about our brewery,” says founding
brewer and co-founder Jamie Floyd. “This beer is big, flavorful and
N10 is crafted of 50% Imperial Stout, 10% Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout,
12.5% Imperial Total Domination IPA, 12.5% Imperial Maiden the Shade
IPA, and 15% Critical Hit Barleywine. The result? A blend that offers a
