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…

Introducing: Dawn of the Red

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.

Jan 07, 2014

To kick off 2014 with a bang, we asked a few members of Team Ninkasi to share a couple of their resolutions with all of you. In the spirit of all things Ninkasi Brewing, we specifically asked this group to share one resolution related to the wonderful world of craft beer and one resolution related to our core purpose: to Perpetuate Better Living. Because, I think…

CHEERS to 2013!

Jan 01, 2014

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…

Craft Brewery ISO of Single Hops

Dec 19, 2013

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…

Cheers to Repeal!

If you’re a fan of craft beer, we hope you appreciate just how good you have it these days (And if you’re not a fan of craft beer, stop by the brewery and we’ll work on fixing that!). With the way things are right now, you can walk through many cities and find a different brewery on every block. In our own small corner of Eugene, we’re a mere stone’s throw from a handful of great breweries and other…

Here at Ninkasi we take our hops seriously. The names of some of our hoppiest brews often reflect this dedication: Critical Hit, Tricerahops and, of course, Total Domination! If you’ve tasted each of these hoppy beers, you probably can tell us one thing that they all have in common: a delicious, bitterness! Do you know what causes the delicious bitterness that we love in all of these beers? Well,…
