Overview
Ninkasi Brewing began in 2006 when Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge spent 17 hours brewing their first batch of Total Domination IPA. Now the nation’s 35th and Oregon’s second largest independent craft brewery, Ninkasi continues to grow to two brewhouses, a 55-barrel and a 90-barrel brewhouse, located in Eugene, Oregon and still under the direction of original founders Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge.

Ninkasi’s Flagship beers are sold throughout Alaska; Alberta; Arizona; California; Colorado; Idaho; Montana; Nevada; Oregon; Washington; and Vancouver, British Columbia. The brewery remains privately-owned and is committed to community support and giving. Ninkasi’s Beer Is Love program offers in-kind donations and support for organizations throughout its distribution footprint.

The Tasting Room opened in November 2009 and is located in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene, Oregon, and on the Ninkasi Brewing campus. Ninkasi’s first restaurant, the Better Living Room, will open in early 2020, followed by a brewhouse in Tumwater, Washington in July 2020.
