Brewed with Pink Boots

If you walk into any craft brewery anywhere in the world, the odds that you'll spot a pair of boots are somewhere between "without a doubt" and "100% chance of tall, waterproof footwear". Which is why this critical piece of a brewer's wardrobe is the perfect symbol for the Pink Boots Society, an organization devoted to helping women advance and…

Bring on Spring: Spring Reign Returns!

We don't know what's going on in your neck of the woods, but here in Eugene we've been  enjoying a streak of warmer weather and sunnier skies. All of this unseasonably nice weather is really getting us in the mood for an early spring. Who cares if it's only February? And so what…

When you hear "Ninkasi" and "Sierra Nevada" in the same sentence, when that sentence is about how the two breweries are going to collaborate on a beer for the same bottle, what kind of beer do you expect to land itself in that bottle? A total hop bomb, right? Wrong. As our founding…

Introducing: PRAVDA

We'll be the first ones to admit that lagers don't always have the best reputation. A lot of craft beer lovers associate the style with something closer to water than delicious, flavorful beer. But we'll also be the first ones to tell you that lagers deserve so much more of our love and attention. And if you're someone who is reluctant to order a lager, there's a good chance you just haven't met…

When you walk into the Tasting Room at the brewery, there's a good chance you're going to see a member (or five or ten) of Team Ninkasi enjoying a pint. These days, there's an even better chance that Dawn of the Red, our brand new India Red Ale, will be in that pint glass. Since the moment…

Believer Wins a 2014 Good Food Award

Once upon a time, in the land of Eugene, two friends got together and decided they wanted to open up a brewery to serve the community. In the spirit of the ancient Sumerians, who brewed beer to act as a cultural hub, the two friends set out to make their brewery, Ninkasi Brewing Company, a village brewery that could give back to the community and Perpetuate Better Living.

Because, I think…

When Jamie and Nikos started Ninkasi in 2006, they never dreamed that in 7 years, THIS is where Ninkasi would be. As another year closes, we wanted to take the opportunity to look back and beam at how many fun, meaningful, and crazy awesome things our brewery got to do this year. Here are just a few of our 2013 highlights: 1)      We grew!

How to Pair Your Holiday Food with Ninkasi!

Dec 23, 2013

Here’s an idea for your holiday meal: ditch the wine or the hard stuff and pick some craft beer to serve alongside all of your favorite dishes. Trust us, we love a good glass of wine with dinner or bourbon cocktail with dessert, but with so many styles of beer to choose from, it would be a crime to deprive your taste buds of so many perfect beverages to pair with just about anything you might be…

There are over 100 different varieties of hops that brewers use to add bitterness, flavor and aroma to beer! And in addition to this massive amount of hops, there are new and experimental hops that are popping up all the time. With every hop offering its own array of unique characteristics, it’s important to find ways to familiarize ourselves with these hops and the different flavors…
