Ninkasi Brewery Eugene Oregon
Heading up from Mendocino County toward Oregon, I decided to stop at Ninkasi due to its dominance (no pun intended) in the Oregon Market. Their Total Domination IPA is ubiquitous in the Oregon area, every restaurant, bar, pub, it was everywhere. And tasty. The beer has some nice floral notes from the hops with a balance yet delightfully bitter finish. I cant say it was my favorite IPA in the world, but I can say it was nice.
As far as food goes – DO NOT EAT THERE. There is an Italian food trailer across the street, try that. This place serves a few pastries and so forth that taste reminiscent of wet cardboard.
All in all, great beer, beautiful venue, horrible food. Go for the beer!!!
