Overview
Ninkasi Brewing began on June 15th, 2006 when Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge spent 17 hours brewing their first batch of Total Domination IPA in leased space inside a German restaurant in Springfield, Oregon. Once a brewery, the building was equipped with a 15 barrel brew house set up for brewpub brewing. A year later, Ninkasi moved to its current location at 272 Van Buren Street, in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene. The brewery now features a 50 barrel brewing system, and uses it to produce beer that is distributed throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and San Francisco. The Ninkasi family of beers has grown from a single IPA (Total Domination) to include Tricerahops Double IPA, Believer Double Red, and Oatis Oatmeal Stout, as well as some popular seasonals: Spring Reign, Radiant Ale, and Sleigh'r Dark Double Alt. The Ninkasi Tasting Room opened in November 2009 and is located in the brewery building. It has been remodeled and is a great place to taste the current seasonal beers as well as the flagship Ninkasi lines - Total Domination, Tricerahops, Believer and Oatis. Visitors will also find a rotating selection of specialty beers and Ninkasi merchandise. The tasting room is open Noon to 9pm Sunday - Wednesday and Noon to 10pm Thursday - Saturday. (The beer dock is open Monday - Friday 9:30-5:30 and Saturday Noon-4:30, for the purchase of kegs to go.) In addition to making and selling locally oriented craft beer, Ninkasi supports all forms of positive community gatherings and non-profit organizations. So far, we have worked to promote sporting events and team sponsorships, musical events and bands, theater and the fine arts, as well as festivals and neighborhood parties. In 2011, we even teamed up with the local water and electric board (EWEB) to brew a special release beer to raise awareness of their 100th anniversary. All profits from the beer go to support the local nonprofit McKenzie River Trust in their efforts to maintain the water supply that feeds the brewery as one of the cleanest purest sources in the world. We look forward to continuing to make great beers and having a positive impact in the communities where we do business. Cheers! Facebook posts for 21+
