About this Brewery
Ninkasi Brewing began its history 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.
Within the next few months Ninkasi maximized its first home as they pushed their maximum annual output of 1600 barrels. Meanwhile, the two worked with the City of Eugene, the SBA, Liberty Bank and some investors to purchase their current location in the heart of the Historic Whiteaker neighborhood in Eugene. Over time, Ninkasi transformed the old plumbing company's building into the modern production brewery it is today.
The brewery now features a brand-new 30 barrel system, and in less than two years has been able to anchor itself as Eugene's flagship brewery, enjoying great support throughout the region. When not making and selling beer Ninkasi is doing what they can to support all forms of the arts, from music events, bands, theater, dance, and fine arts, to festivals and neighborhood parties.
Down the road Ninkasi plans to open a small tasting room to host folks who travel into town. For now visitors come directly into the active brewery to taste beers see what's going on and visit with the staff. "It is a fun and open atmosphere for folks to check us out."
