Thanks to Chris at Belmont Station for the heads up on this one. Ninkasi Brewing Company, known for it’s hoppy treats like the Total Domination IPA. Believer Double Red, and the Tricerahops Double IPA, have just bottled their deep rich stout named Oatis. This dark, delicious oatmeal stout, named for the brewery’s mascot dog Otis, is healthfully hopped and contains a robust chocolaty malt character. The perennially available draught beer will complement a nice repretoire of beers in bottles by the Eugene brewery. When I spoke to brewer and owner Jamie Floyd last year, he described the beer as having a “rich robust flavor, silky oatmeal body, and cheek-warming strength fights off the cold winter months.” Amen, brother!
