  • We visited the tasting room with a group of 7 adult family members and 2 children. I think we got kind of lucky by finding indoor seating right away and within minutes we all were enjoying a beer...  more »

  • It can sometimes be hard for me to enjoy a restaurant and the ambiance and the food when the service is just bad. And nine times out of ten, service has very little to do with the actual server and a lot to do with how the restaurant is run and how many people they choose to have working on a busy night. All that being said, with their new space only open for three weeks, I had pretty low expectations. And I can say that I was very wrong. We enjoyed the absolute best service and kindness from every person who helped us from the very beginning walking in the door, to our truly kind, funny, and whip-smart server Harmony, to the very end, when the manager had to step in with grace and kindness when a gift card went wrong. And for the food? I can honestly say it was absolutely delicious. Some things need a little more tweaking but ultimately it was all good. Some of the flavor pairings surprised me on the menu and then delighted us when they were served warm on the table. Beer, as always, was delicious. Excited to try more of their limited run options in the near future. I will be back very soon. I still have a few more dishes on the menu I haven't quite made it through. Well done Ninkasi. I wanted to be smug. I wanted to sneer at the whole concept. I wanted to make fun of the art. I wanted to roll my eyes at the way the bill was presented at the end. But I couldn't. From the dishes, to the people working there, to the truly beautiful space, well done.
  • Ninkasi is tucked in a quiet art inspired neighborhood in the college town of Eugene. I'm from California and love their beer I buy at total wine near my house and when I was on my way to visit Portland I HAD to stop by and check out their tasting room. I went in and bought a flight of 5 different beers and man were they all so good! Also they had a live band playing chill music and cover songs. Had a great time I will be back some day!
