Welcome to the Ninkasi Better Living Room!
Opening in Eugene’s Whiteaker neighborhood at 155 Blair Blvd. in January 2020
Step into our living room and perpetuate better living! The Better Living Room is a restaurant and gathering space to celebrate beer, food, art, and community. Our full-service kitchen will celebrate locally-sourced food and flavors of the region while complementing the unique flavors craft beer drinkers enjoy. Plus, our expanded bar provides more taps to share our unique and innovative small batch beers brewed on our 5-barrel Pilot Brewery.
Meet Chef Andrew Hroza
Le Cordon Blue-trained Chef Andrew Hroza joins Ninkasi after opening Warpigs for Three Floyd’s and Mikkeller in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014. Prior to Warpigs, Hroza served as Executive Chef for Goose Island Brewing for nearly a decade. His restaurants have received numerous recognition, including The White Guide’s “Best New Brewpub/Restaurant” for Warpigs in 2015, where he received a consecutive 4-star rating from Politikan Copenhagen. Hroza is dedicated to zero waste in his kitchen, having established a whole animal program during his stint as Chef Liaison for Slow Foods Chicago and reduced Mikkeller restaurants’ carbon footprint during his time in Copenhagen.
In anticipation of our opening in January 2020, we are thrilled to be collaborating with local artisans in Eugene.

Our 5-barrel Pilot Brewery is where all of our experimentation and recipe development takes place. We’re constantly learning, growing, collaborating with other brewers and breweries, and creating new recipes. At the Better Living Room, these small pilot batches will be on tap for you to try for the first time ever. Some of our pilot batches launching in January include:
Sour Viking Cherry Kettle Sour
Lady of Avalon Dark Lager
Mother Road Brewing IPA Collaboration
Double Hazy IPA

All tasting room operations at the current location at 272 Van Buren will be moved to the Better Living Room space at 155 Blair Blvd. in January. You can still join us for a casual beer (and we’re expanding our taps to 40!), or dine with us for a full meal.
We’re also improving our Dogs of Ninkasi experience! Your furry friends won’t be able to join us for the initial re-launch, but are invited for our patio opening in Summer 2020 and beyond.
We’re excited you’re excited! We expect reservations to open some time in January. Follow our social channels for the announcement or at ninkasibrewing.com/eugene.
