New fermentation tanks arrive at Ninkasi brewery

EUGENE, Ore. - Three fermentation tanks capable of holding more than 1,000 kegs worth of beer each arrived at Ninkasi Brewing Company in the Whiteaker neighborhood on Friday.

The tanks will be used outside the existing brewery until the new brewery is ready for them in November.

The tanks traveled by truck from the manufacturer in Springfield, Missouri.

Founded in 2006, Ninkasi is now involved in its fourth and largest expansion project since moving to the Whiteaker neighborhood.
