Stopped by Ninkasi on our way back from Portland.
This is a newer construction modern looking building, very cool looking. Walked into the lobby and ordered a few beers to bring out to the patio. The patio is all concrete with gas fireplaces and concrete benches and tables to sit at, I could imagine this being the place to be at night.

Beers were tasty as Ninkasi normally makes them, it seems they have food, but its not a prominent feature at all, I didnt even really noticed that they offered food.

I enjoyed our stop here, I imagine that this is what Stone Brewing would do if they had 1/20th of the space that they currently have, a very cool place to hang and have a beer.

One of my favorite breweries in Eugene, Oregon. The location isn't in the best part of the city, but that area has improved along way. Ninkasi is a pinnacle in the Eugene area and Western Oregon beer lovers community. It's a really cool looking modern atmosphere with open stone fire pits fueled by gas. Tasting room is small with a dozen or so seats, which is ok because there is ample seating outside. No food served by them, but a food cart is right next it and one is also across the street. Good food. The tap selection is always changing with seasonal beers which keeps interest in return visits to taste them on draft. They also keep their staple beers always on tap (Total Domination etc.). Cleanliness is well maintained, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful to those who are new to tasting craft beers and those who want something different. They'll let you sample anything before buying. Great company! Locally Owned! Good people! A must for any Eugene visit or brew tour.

Came here in mid September with a friend who was a Eugene Restauranteur. Enjoyed the beer tremendously. Liked the outdoor seating but the fire could've been warmer.

Very nice place but wish they sold bottles. Growler prices are reasonable.

A must-visit when visiting Eugene. Unless you're a local... then you can go any time you please.

Very busy tasting room on a Friday afternoon. Still, great service. Tasty flight, and I really liked the tasting cards for each beer. Eclectic vibe with college kids and older folks, all enjoying beer in the sunshine.

Stopped by for a quick sampling, the beer was good, but the place seems to be lacking character, I mean they are trying to build character but it seemed forced to me.
