In 2012 Cascadia Wildlands approached Ninkasi Brewing Company in about collaborating on music fundraisers at the tasting room and patio in Eugene. Ninkasi graciously accepted, and shortly after Pints Gone Wild! was born — a first-Monday-of-the-month benefit where 25% of beer sales were donated to support our conservation work. The popular events were such a hit that Ninkasi generously agreed to extend the benefit ever since. Today, Pints Gone Wild! runs from May-October with incredible local music gracing the patio from 6:00 pm-7:30 pm. Past acts have included Mood Area 52, Gaye Lee Russell and Her Badass Band, Inoke, Alder Street, Sean Peterson Jazz Trio, Opal Creek, Douglas County Daughters, Heavy Chevy, Uncle Stumbles, Red Pants Trio, and so many more.
The Ninkasi tasting room and patio hours are 12 pm to 9 pm and are located at 272 Van Buren Street in Eugene's historic Whiteaker neighborhood. Be sure to thank Ninkasi for its long-time generosity towards Cascadia Wildlands.
