The Art Behind NSP

Renowned gig poster artist, Neal Williams created the Ground Control label art. Eugene hip hop troupe and Ninkasi Partner Artists, Marv Ellis and WE Tribe recorded a track in one night at Ninkasi Studios after they were inspired by the NSP Mission footage documenting the Ground Control launches and the successful recovery of our brewer‘s yeast from space.

CSXT Collaboration

Since 1995, CSXT has been launching rockets into the skies. In celebration of CSXT’s 2004 record breaking launch, a new collaboration of CSXT and Ninkasi will inform our brewers of yeast’s viability in space. This launch will once again prove the limitless capabilities of the human spirit, while celebrating the 10 year anniversary of that first historic launch.
