Lane County's three leading breweries are all planning expansions in Eugene's Whiteaker neighborhood.

Ninkasi Brewing Co., Lane County’s biggest brewery and the 32nd-largest craft brewer in the United States, plans to more than double its production capacity to 200,000 barrels, with a $15 million addition on a lot immediately west of its facility at 272 Van Buren St., CEO Nikos Ridge said.
Oakshire Brewing is in the process of buying an 11,000-square-foot building at 225 Madison St., co-founder Jeff Althouse said. The building is listed as valued at $575,000, and Oakshire plans to spend $500,000 remodeling the space for barrel aging, warehouse, offices and a tasting room, with a target of opening for Thanksgiving, he said.
And Hop Valley Brewing Co., which operates a brewery and brew pub in Springfield’s Gateway area, plans to add production space and a tasting room early next year at 990 W. First Ave., which housed Scharph’s building materials, Hop Valley owner/partner Jonas Kungys said.
