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.

As a long time brewer myself, I love to taste the recipes at breweries like Ninkasi. They have a wonderful variety and we loved them all, with a special appreciation for the IPA's. A 5-brew sampler flight was low priced and fun to share. They had a visiting food service - but we went for the ales. Excellent!

This tap room has a really cozy outdoor space considering it's set amongst the gigantic brewing facilities. The bartender was friendly and helpful. There was food truck parked at the entrance and several across the street. The beers were only $4!

up and coming microbrewery offers really yummy beers, especially IPA's. In the funky Whitaker neighborhood that has several good dining and entertainment options.

I attended the Oregon Governor's Conference on tourism dinner here earlier this week. What a great venue for that dinner and lots of beverages. The facility is extremely clean, everywhere. The food was all catered in, but the beer was great with lots of variety. Ninkasi, which is early Sumarian for fermentation or something like that, has exploded in the... More
