We spent last Friday evening sampling some Ninkasi brews, listening to live music, and enjoying another perfect Oregon Summer Day. As a bonus, there are several permanent and food-truck style places to grab some food very close to the tasting room. Ninkasi encourages you to bring your food back to the outdoor area to enjoy with your beer. Try the... More

Stopped yesterday with friends for one beer. We seat indoor and enjoyed good lager. AC was just right on hot July afternoon.

Stopped by here to try a couple of beers. I had a session IPA and a blackberry sour. Both were delicious and priced fairly cheap for a brewery. Really loved all of the outdoor seating!

Were really looking forward to visiting Ninkasi while in Eugene as we love their beer when we can find it in Fl. The brewery was very impressive and we loved the outdoor patio area. Had a flight of all their available beers and loved them all. Staff was friendly and the beers were terrific!

I don't like IPAs but I loved their summer IPA. Great outdoor seating area and a food cart that rotates throughout the week (I got excellent icecream the night I went)

We were on a craft beer road trip through Central Oregon. Love Ninkasi when we can find it at home so this was a high priority stop. Neat place and really friendly folks. We took a sampler of their product - Superb beer. We both liked all that we tried, and back for Dawn of the Red seconds. They had... More

We'd stopped by the tap room on a previous trip and decided we'd like to take the free tour. Arrived early and had a pre-tour pint to get ready. Learned a lot about the founding of the brewery and their distribution and awards. Already familiar with the brewing process but that was covered too. Guide was personable and knowledgeable and...

This large brewery is plonked right in the heart of Eugene's vibrant and leafy Whiteaker residential district, giving it a unique and interesting setting right from the start. The taproom itself is pretty small indoors, with only a few high top tables, but the real attraction is the huge patio and fire feature. There are plenty of tables and seating... More

I stopped by the brewery by myself to check it out. I ordered the Oatis Oatmeal Stout, which is delicious, and then walked to an outside table. I didn't once feel out of place. It is a common meeting area for many people. There was a dog walking group, a group of friends, business meetings and all sorts going on... More

We had a very small tour and the guide was great. Solid beers and a great atmosphere to enjoy a beer or two.
