Was there too late to grab a beer but funky place and employees super friendly. Ended up at the old school arcade next door that serves their beers on recommendation from one of the employees. Get there with enough time to enjoy the atmosphere at the brewery and then hit up the arcade for some serious pinball action!

Great IPA's! Enjoyed our tasting and tour afterward. The tour covered the beginnings of Ninkassi and our guide did a great job explaining the process. Look forward to coming back. We had lunch delivered from a business across the street.

Cool place. We got 2 flights, to try all of the beers. We really liked almost all of them. Nice bathrooms, nice clothing options. Pretty small inside, but tons of seating outdoors. We went on a cooler day, so we sat inside, which wasn't crowded bc it was a Wednesday. Only complaint I have is I wish they served food... More

Tried this brewery when it was cold out. Nice outside tables and chairs with beautiful heaters, but no way to fight the wind. The crowd gets a little fun filled. Great fries, like nachos some with shredded meat. Nice bar, generous pour for the dollar great beer like the oak stout and Dawn of the Red. Food carts across the... More

Ninjas I knows how to do beer. The tasting room is open and comfortable. Staff is friendly. View is industrial and residential. Food is available. Close to the local activities. My visit is on a cold, rainy winter day. Seems like the right place to visit. They do flights to sample each of their styles. They like to make beer... More

Always known for great beer, my recent visit here just gave me more to love. The garden area was an excellent place to chill out and drink a couple cold ones during our visit.

Love the feel of Ninkasi Brewery and the fact that they don't have a restaurant but, daily, switch out different food trucks for their beer and cider drinking guests. Great brews and great atmosphere.

Loved the patio area with food truck! Heard they get a different one every so often. Beers are delicious and recommend getting a flight because not only do they taste amazing and the value but you get a cool card with each beer detailing the beer.

Local quality people with strong work ethics built a business that was well planned. The vision has come to fruition. I am pleased and proud of them.

Thursday September 16, 2016. 4pm and 83 degrees. While traveling to the Redwoods, we wanted to stop by the Ninkasi brewery in Eugene. The weather was perfect for sampling beer with a slight breeze on a nice shady patio. We were very familiar with Ninkasi's Sleigh'r and wanted to try their other beers. We aren't fond of most IPA's so... More
