The Ninkasi Dinner Menu
Andouille Deviled Eggs
Sour Cream & Onion Chicharones
Explorateur Cheese Tarts with Blackberries
Paired with Helles Belles Lager
Helles Belles Lager is a headliner for the masses. Light and flavorful, this drinkable Lager strikes a chord between satisfyingly crisp and deliciously crafted. It’s time to rock—all night long.
Corn and Summer Squash, Aleppo Chili, Cheddar & Beer Biscuit
Paired with Dawn of The Red
Dawn of The Red: Bursting with tropical notes, this Red IPA captures the bright complexity of El Dorado and Mosaic hops. An assertive hop presence is carried by a subtle caramel backbone, unearthing a beer that is flavorful and juicy.
Soft Shell Crab French Toast, Tomatoes, Basil Oil, Microgreens
Paired with Pacific Rain
Fiercely flavorful and refreshingly drinkable, Pacific Rain is your call to experience the Pacific Northwest. Crafted with water from Oregon’s McKenzie River and a band of four distinguished hops, this Northwest Pale is citrusy, crisp and tailor-made for easy drinking.
Beer Braised Short Rib, Purple Potatoes, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Maitake Mushrooms
Paired with Oktoberfest
Crafted with Oregon-grown hops, this Oktoberfest marries Northwest ingredients with a traditional German style. Celebrating the harvest, this light-bodied beer has a toasty malt bouquet and just a touch of hop bitterness. Prost!
Peach Tartan with Vanilla Oatmeal Stout Ice Cream & Huckleberry Syrup
Paired with Oatmeal Stout
A divine blend of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt notes swirl together to create a smooth Oatmeal Stout with a crisp finish. The true signature of this beer comes from the addition of whole vanilla beans to the final stage of conditioning—the same process we use to dry hop a beer. Slightly sweet with a rich complexity, Vanilla Oatis is decadent and delicious.
