Eugene Ale Trail
Explore Eugene's Craft Beer Scene
The Eugene Ale Trail spotlights our region's top breweries. The close proximity between many of the craft beer tasting rooms makes it uniquely easy to pub crawl Oregon's renowned micro-brews. And don't forget, you can always ride the bus or call a cab!
Why is Eugene craft beer superb?
- Our ultra pure water from the McKenzie River
- An emphasis on local and regional ingredients from hops to grains
- A local legacy of home-brewing before, during and after prohibition
There is great pride in the local beer, which graces many restaurant menus and even turns up at urban wine bars. The Whiteaker neighborhood and downtown Eugene hubs are infused with bottleshops, taphouses and growler fill stations. So really, there is no excuse for not drinking good beer while in town.
Hit the trail
Well-known breweries include Ninkasi and McMenamins. But we also encourage you to discover some of the smaller outlaying brewers like Agrarian Ales (Coburg), Brewers Union Local 180 (Oakridge) and Hard Knocks (Cottage Grove). The travel time invested is amply rewarded with some pretty amazing craft beers.

Please note: The Eugene Ale Trail is not a comprehensive representation of all the breweries, bottle shops and growler fill stations in the region. However, it does provide an excellent sampling of Eugene's best craft beers and diversity of styles.
