Ninkasi Dawn of the RedDawn of the Red IRA Available Year-Round Starting February 15

EUGENE, Ore.Ninkasi Brewing Company announces the addition of Dawn of the Red, an India Red Ale, to its year-round Flagship Series lineup starting February 15 across the brewery’s distribution footprint.

Originally released as a Rare & Delicious (R&D) Series beer, an experimental small-batch series, Dawn of the Red was first brewed out of a want to offer an IPA using new hop varieties, including El Dorado and Mosaic hops. The beer immediately became a favorite, advancing itself to the Ninkasi Special Release Series in 2014. Once again, the fanfare for this beer was undeniable, making it an easy decision to add it to the 2015 Ninkasi Flagship Series.

“The idea for this beer was to make a super drinkable, hoppy beer with a touch of caramel malt to bring some dryness and malt-flavor into the finish,” explains Ninkasi founding brewer and co-founder, Jamie Floyd, who had been wanting to brew an IRA for some time.

Ninkasi’s Flagship Series lineup offers a full spectrum of beer styles, including the brewery’s first Flagship beer – Total Domination IPA – alongside Tricerahops Double IPA, Oatis Oatmeal Stout, Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout, and a year-round German-Style Helles Lager, Lux.
