In 2012 Cascadia Wildlands approached Ninkasi Brewing Company about collaborating on music fundraisers at the tasting room and patio in Eugene. Ninkasi graciously accepted, and shortly after Pints Gone Wild! was born — an all-day benefit where 25% of beer sales are donated to support our conservation work.
Today, Pints Gone Wild! (a Ninkasi Pints For a Cause fundraiser) 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 is located at 272 Van Buren Street in Eugene's historic Whiteaker neighborhood. These events are ADA accessible, free, and open to the public. Be sure to thank Ninkasi for its long-time generosity towards Cascadia Wildlands.
Call to Local Area Musicians!

May 9: Pints Gone Wild! at Ninkasi featuring Austin Farrell
Audiences are immediately captivated by Austin’s songwriting and multi-instrumentalist abilities. But his genuine personality adds another dimension to his performances. His one-man act fills each venue with a blend of guitar and vocals that have been compared to the likes of Jack Johnson’s Acoustic Surf Rock vibe and Bon Iver’s Indie Folk melodies.
