When ever we are in Eugene we always have to stop by here to have a beer and relax on their outdoor patio. The beer is always great, the patio is comfortable and inviting and they have a fire pit wall.

We stopped by to taste some beer. They have a taster that costs $8.00 for 5 tastes. You can pick any 5 beers you would like. There were probably around 10 - 15 beers to try. (I can't remember exactly). Our favorite was the Mango IPA. The tasting room is small but well managed. There is a large outdoor patio.... More

Walking inside to order here was a little tough as it's fairly small inside. There is a small bar and area to order, but once you take your beer on the patio it's very spacious. Lots of places to sit and relax with a partially covered deck. Great place to go relax.

Came here with my husband on vacation. The bartender was super helpful. I wasn't familiar with Ninkasi beers, but I told him what I liked and he pointed me in the right direction. I liked the fire pit outside. Very relaxed atmosphere and very good beer!

While on a day filled with drinking beer, we figured Ninkasi would be a great place to get a drink. Ninkasi is tucked into the heart of the Whitaker area, the gates are open, fires are roaring, and taps are just waiting to pump out as many pints as possible. We tried to sit outside, but it was way too... More

We loved Ninkasi! The Mango IPA is my favorite but everything is delicious. The staff is super cool (kudos to Tiffany!) and the yummy food carts across the street deliver here. You cannot NOT come here if you're in Eugene. Awesome clothing & retail goods too. We are instant fans!

This was among my favorite breweries that we visited while in Eugene. The beers were as advertised. I am not a huge IPA fan but Ninkasi definitely brought out the best in the hopps. Service was excellent and the other patrons were definitely the nicest of all the breweries. Very helpful in steering us in the right direction for a... More

Very crowded during our visit. There is minimal indoor seating and the outside temp was 104! The crowd at the bar was intimidating and several walked out, but it moved quickly and the beers are excellent.

Wow!!! These guys know how to make beer!! We tried a few styles and all were good. Nice atmosphere and located in an excellent, funky neighborhood full of fine, eclectic restaurants.

Haven't been here in two years. Still my favorite Oregon brewery. Food truck for food (6:25pm). Hope not to long between visits next time. Sample any beer before buying a pint. Sampler tray also.
