Here is a couple of newer places that have opened in Salem!
First there is Santiam Brewing. It is a nano brewery opened from what I understand members of the Salem Homebrew Club. They have a tap room and we are starting to see their beers around town in places as Ventis and Franklin's Bottle Shop.
Speaking of Franklin's Bottle Shop, it is a new bottle room / lounge where you can go relax and have a drink. They also sell various beers if you just want to pick up something to take home. Great environment in downtown Salem and I recommend checking them out. No website at this moment that I know of but here is an article on them and their facebook page.
