Ninkasi Brewing was founded in 2006 in Springfield, Oregon by Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge. Floyd had been a brewer at Steelhead Brewery in Eugene, Oregon for 11 years, while Ridge had been working in finance in New York. When Ridge moved back to Oregon in 2004, the two were introduced to each other, and soon thereafter resolved to open a brewery together. The name Ninkasi comes from the ancient Sumerian goddess of brewing. The brewery’s first beers were brewed in a leased space in Springfield, but in 2007 the brewery moved to its current location in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene.

In 2019, it was purchased by Legacy Breweries, a new company created with the concept of merging together a family of breweries. Soon thereafter, Legacy purchased Laurelwood Brewing out of Portland, and Aspen Brewing out of Colorado. But the following year, the original owners of Ninkasi purchased the company back. In 2023, they announced they were merging with Wings & Arrow (parent company of Ashland Hard Seltzer), which after the merger renamed to Great Frontier Holdings.
