Ninkasi Brewing

Rachael McDonald

Beer is big in the northwest. And lots of people are making it… commercially and at home. A new business is geared toward helping home-brewers with improving the beer they make in their kitchens and garages.
I spoke with Dana Garves, owner and founder of "Oregon BrewLab".  She worked in Ninkasi's beer lab for 4 years before starting her own business this fall.

Singer/songwriter Kattail spent several years living in the Willamette Valley, and is now living in Venice Beach, California. Touring behind her self-titled debut CD, which includes a song about Cottage Grove, she stopped in the KLCC studios for a performance in advance of local gigs at Tiny Tavern, Ninkasi Brewing and Hot Mama's Chicken Wings.
