A 45-minute drive from Lyon, the Ninkasi brewery and distillery welcomes curious visitors each week. It is an opportunity for an outing as a family or with friends, to discover Lyon’s fantastic tradition of brewing, during a pleasant visit to the Beaujolais region.

Ninkasi moved into the former dyeing works of Tarare, where the magnificent Eiffel structures lend it incredible charm. This huge space, where the master brewers have worked their magic since 2012, has the capacity to produce 5000 litres per brew.

From the dam of Joux, the water of Tarare is famed for its pureness and softness, making it perfect for brewing and distilling. Ninkasi’s beers and spirits have received several awards at national and international competitions.
Come and visit the brewers, who will be delighted to share their passion with you.
