Oakshire Brewing

DSC03509

The Oregon Beer Trail continues at Oakshire Brewing, a 15 barrel brewery and public house that began in 2006 when home brewing brothers Jeff and Chris Althouse went pro. Some of the finest craft beer Eugene, Oregon has to offer can be drank at Oakshire!

Our beer flight on deck for today includes Line (Rye IPA), Ride Your Bike (Double Red Ale), Overcast Espresso Stout (an amazing breakfast beer in our experience!) and Madame Blu (bourbon barrel aged blueberry Berlinerweisse). Cheers!

Ninkasi Brewing Company – what an incredible experience! Ninkasi of course is the ancient Sumerian Goddess of Fermentation. We all knew that, right?!

Ninkasi Brewing was founded much later, in 2006, after Nikos Ridge and Jamie Floyd met at a local Eugene, Oregon bottle shop and pondered, “What would you do if you could open your own brewery?” How relatable! Thank you fine sirs for bringing such wonderful beer into the world and emphasizing the origin and symbiosis of beer and civilization! Ninkasi Brewing Company is a must stop on the Oregon Beer Trail!

Beer time at Ninkasi Brewing! Total Domination IPA (their first brew and still a winner), Oatis (Oatmeal Stout), Quantum (Pale Ale), Tripel (Belgian Style Tripel Ale), Maiden the Shade (summer style IPA), Dawn of the Red (India Red Ale), Tricerahops (Double IPA), Wunderbier (Kolsch), Vanilla Oatis and last but not least Boss Hopp IPA. This. Is. Awesome.

Beer flight at Ninkasi Brewing – who could ask for anything more?

Ninkasi Brewing produced these marvellous gates in their own on premise metal shop. They’re so awesome that Sierra Nevada Brewing Company commissioned Ninkasi to manufacture new gates for their brewery down in Chico, California!

We’ve always wondered how Ninkasi Brewing cleans all their old kegs – this here machine does just that all day long!
