Breweries & Taphouses
Oregon beer has garnered national recognition with sustainable brewing, award-winning craft brews, distinctively cool microbreweries and burgeoning gastropubs.
Throughout the region, beer aficionados appreciate the variety of beer from international selections to home brews poured at local sports bars, breweries, beer gardens, bottle shops, taphouses and growler fill stations.
Eugene's Whiteaker neighborhood, home to regionally-distributed Ninkasi Brewing Company, has become a fermentation district featuring cider houses and distilleries alongside the breweries. Join the locals tasting small-batch, hand-crafted beer along the Eugene Ale Trail.
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
The Whiteaker neighborhood and downtown Eugene hubs are infused with bottleshops, taphouses and growler fill stations. There is great pride in the local beer, which graces many restaurant menus and even turns up at urban wine bars. So really, there is no excuse for not drinking good beer while in town.
