The brainchild of friends Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge, Ninkasi Brewing Company will take over Umami Burger’s beer taps with four brews selected for late-summer drinking (Pictured: Umami Beers – Photo credit: Courtesy of SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino).
The featured brews will include: Dawn of The Red IPA, a red IPA bursting with tropical notes with a juicy, yet subtle malt backbone; Pacific Rain, a Northwest Pale Ale crafted with water from the McKenzie River and four distinguished hops to deliver a citrusy, crisp and flavorful experience; Hop Cooler Citrus IPA, a bright and tropical India Pale Ale that layers a blend of orange and tangerine with a robust hop profile; and Vanilla Oatis, an Oatmeal Stout complete with a blend of vanilla, coffee, chocolate and roasted malt notes to create a crisp, complex finish.
Named after the ancient Sumerian Goddess of Fermentation, Ninkasi Brewing Company was founded in 2006 by Floyd and Ridge, who wanted to provide a place for people to come together over a pint of beer. Now in its eleventh year, Ninkasi continues to grow while remaining community-driven and in 2016 was ranked the 33th largest craft brewer in the United States by the Brewers Association.
The beers will be priced at $9 for a 14-ounce draft, $15 for a 25-ounce draft and $27 for a 50-ounce souvenir yard. On Tap Takeover Tuesdays, guests may purchase any Tap Takeover 14-ounce draft and receive the second draft for free, limit one per guest.
