Visited on 10th November 2014. Modern tap room alongside the brewery which has a selection of merchandise on display. 10 of their own beers available which came in a 5 beer taster tray which we set about. Decent service. Beer was decent enough but not the best of the trip. A nice place.
Probably my favorite beers of the "Big 3" (Ninkasi, Oakshire, Hop Valley), but the lack of food somewhat narrow selection are problematic. But the trading cards are a great idea, the merchandise is actually a cut above, and the servers are very helpful.
Decent beer, but the selection is not phenomenal, and the only beer I really liked a lot was their Dawn of the Red and Critical Hit Barleywine. Everything was ok, but none of it really blew me away at all.
Visited around 3pm on Monday 11/10/14.
Small tap room built alongside the brewery with 10 beers on tap, all own brews, mix of styles available in pints, half pints or a 5 beer taster for $7. The tasting tray was a nice touch, a metal tray with trading cards (like top trumps) describing each beer.
Service was fine, not very busy on our visit with perhaps a dozen others, that said youíd be hard pressed to fit more than 40/50 folks in here. Merchandise also available allied with beers to go.
Ok place, beers were fine but nothing blew me away. Just a few minutes walk from Hop Valley Brewing.
I love Ninkasi, and this has been one of my go-to breweries for quite a while now. The taproom is pretty small, but the outside seating is fantastic. Nice firepit and live music in the evenings. Food cart (Sandwich League) is freaking AWESOME...however I canít rate Ninkasi on this food since itís an outside vendor. The staff is awesome and the brewery tour was great! Brewery workers Jared & Dan are bad@$$! I love those guys!! Definitely a MUST-STOP when you are in the Willamette Valley...especially if you like hop-forward beers!!
Cool place. Smaller indoor seating area and a nice outdoor area. Cool building. Good beers, nice staff, a great place to hangout and have a couple beers.

Very nice brewery with a very comfortable vibe. Tasting room is very small but there is a real nice outside area with some ez ups and tables. The centerpiece of outside though is a large "fire pit" with glass beads as the medium that is a really nice place to congregate and warm up. Most of the Ninkasi line is availalabe on tap. Food is served through a rotating lunch truck that parks almost in the common outside area making a nice transition so long as the weather is nice. Loved the place and would highly recommend to any beer lover going through Eugene.
June 2010. If you like Pac NW hops and brew flavors... wow, this is the place for you! I loved it! Their tasting room was all brushed stainless steel, and they were working on building a patio area while I was there. It didnít have a feel like "sit around for hours", but we were just stopping in for samplers anyway. We tried 7 or 8 beers (samplers were 5 pours each) and they all were deliciously hoppy with long, lingering finishes. Surprised at the more recent reviews of this place, I had a good time on my visit.
