Oregon Road Trip, Day Two

Today we went south to Conby and visited JV Northwest, an impressive manufacturer of major brewing equipment. Phil gave us a great tour and reviewed our plans with us.

Then off to Eugene to hook up with Paul, who does some consulting for us. He is at Ninkasi now helping with a major expansion project. They where adding a dedicated whirlpool kettle when we visited and we saw the plans for even more. They just do local distribution in bottles and kegs!! Paul let us tap a few fresh draft pints since it was pretty close to noon we had to say yes…the IPA was fantastic. (Robyn, Paul, Peter, Kevin in front of Ninkasi)

(Fermentation room, keg prep, and loading up)

More great brewers in OR! Thanks to Paul and Robyn for the tour and great discussions.

And check it out $18 beers at a special shop in Eugene!
