Finally decided to go to the famous Ninkasi at Stade de Gerland and what an enjoyable night it was! One can roughly divide up the building into five areas: The entrance 'wine and dine' room where snacks and small dishes are served; The Concert room; The screening room, an ample area with long pick nick like tables, reminiscent of German beer gardens; The intimate beer garden and the sophisticated restaurant room up stairs. All areas share the same low-lights, relaxed vibe albeit each in it's own hue.

Apart from the House brand there isn't a whole lot of beers to choose from and the house beers aren't even that good to be honest. The ones i had felt like highly watered down versions of great craft brewing styles but the food IS very decent and there is something for nearly everyone as far as food is concerned.

Overall a great place, you had people enjoying the local football team game, people rocking out to a killer Stoner concert and people just chilling in the beer garden or the Le Silo restaurant. Will definitely hit this place up again during my stay in Lyon.

This is a review of the ninkasi near Stade Gerland. It has the normal range of ninkasi beer, which is solid but not great. The armbree and IPA are my favorite offerings. It has a nice seating area outside the front with plenty of seats. A restaurant upstairs and a snack bar just inside the door. I ate a tasty burger from the snack bar, from which you can order a drink with your food. There is also a separate bar for beers. I visited on regular Tuesday night around 7pm and for me the place seemed very busy. But service was quick. If crowds are not your thing I would warn against visiting on night where OL are playing a home match as the stadium is about 300 meters away. The price of food and beers from the snack bar is very reasonable. A pint of armbree cost 5.70 euro as of April 2014. I have visited bars charging 16 euro a pint for craft beers in Lyon. Ninkasi is solid but not amazing. Great for quenching craft beer thirst as there are 6 I think in Lyon.
