Seven years ago we set out to make small batch craft beer for our local community, striving to have fun while passionately writing the latest chapter in our capital’s brewing legacy. With much sadness we announce that the Salem Ale Works chapter has come to an end. Saturday August 29th, 2020 was the last day our taproom was open and we were operational. Although this is not the way we hoped things would end, we look back over the years and reflect on the fond memories made and amazing support received from our fans.
So, thank you Salem! Your support over the last seven years has been amazing for two dudes who wanted to make some beer we couldn’t find in the store. The Salem brewery scene has come a long way in the last decade and we’re happy to say we were a part of it. This journey was made possible by our employees, our ever-loyal Mug Club, and the multitude of people who filed through the door to have their glasses filled with SAW beer. Words would never be able to convey our continued thanks for all you have done to Make Salem Awesome.
Our most fervent hope is that one day in the future you’ll pour yourself a beer, raise up your glass and say, “Remember Salem Ale Works? That place was fucking awesome.”
