Stopped on our way to Portland for a pint of the Quantum Pale Ale and lunch from the Sandwich League food cart. Good and friendly service in the tap room. Beer lovers, this is a great stop.

Enjoyed a leisurely afternoon on the Ninkasi outdoor patio. Great atmosphere, nice crowd, easy to find and the best part - good tastings with many choices served by friendly staff. Definitely a place to drop in when in Eugene.

Very nice quick stop in March 2014 to fill a growler. Everyone was in costume, I hope. Friendly pourers even with large crowed. I'll stop by whenever I drive through Eugene, OR.

Stopped by Ninkasi on February 15, 2014 while in Eugene for the day. We initially stopped in to look at their merchandise since their Ninkasi logo is very stylish and we wanted a t-shirt. However, after seeing the beer choices and receiving such great customer service, we decided to stay to enjoy a beer. Firstly, the atmosphere appears very hip... More

Ended up being one of our first stops in Eugene as it was in the neighborhood we stayed in back in October. Walked in and saw they had some different tasting flights. I was amazed that I could get five small beers for $7! The young lady helping me was great, figuring out which I'd like the best. I ended... More

We stopped off here before heading off to Eugene Airport and it was quite good. They did have food, or food trailers available and they looked like they were a permanent addition, so perhaps this is a change from previous reviews. While the tasting room was small, they have added outdoor covered seating, so now lots of places available to... More

Every time I come to Eugene, I make it a point to hit this brewery. Their beer is always good and the servers are great. The food truck is on the premise and has always been good. Its a must do if you love craft beer.

Ninkasi is strictly a brewery. They don't serve food, but do have food trucks in the vicinity. Seating capacity is limited, at least indoors. We went because we were told they have lots of interesting metal art. Some, yes. Lots? No. As for the beer? My boyfriend didn't even finish his flight.

They have great beer, but a must do is the tour. Very personnel and detailed tour of how they got started to the point they are at today. Wish we would have had time to try all their beers.

Always come to this place when in Eugene. Great beer. Very popular place. Fun place in the summer. Outside fire pit for the colder days. Will take some home when I leave.
