Time for another Kernel of Appreciation from the squirrels at Doug’s Nuts. Today’s shout-out goes to our friends and neighbors at Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene. In just 6 years Ninkasi has grown from a tiny backroom operation to a regional powerhouse in the Pacific NW craft brewing world. Their commercial success has not spoiled them… Ninkasi continues to give back to the community with their support of arts, music, and event sponsorships. The annual Whiteaker Block Party centers on Ninkasi’s Tasting Room on Van Buren Street, the scene of recent beer-fueled Doug’s Nuts events. Let’s raise our glasses and toast our friends and neighbors: Nuts to You, Ninkasi! Cheers!
